This will be mud in the eye of the Brylcreem Barrister (as some call him) and his cronies.
Left Foot Forward has reported:
The former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has today given his strongest indication yet that he intends to stand as a parliamentary candidate for Islington North in the next general election.
In a Twitter thread marking the 40th anniversary of him first being elected as MP for Islington North, Corbyn said: “It has been an honour representing the people of Islington North. With your support, that is what I’ll continue to do.”
Rumours have proliferated that Mr Corbyn will stand as an Independent since the Labour Party’s National Executive Committee passed a motion by Keir Starmer that barred him from representing that party in any further election.
Now, as he celebrates 40 years as a member of Parliament, he has given the strongest hint yet that this is exactly what he’ll do.
As he should. Corbyn will walk it, and become a major story in the election itself, to the embarrassment of Starmer’s merry band of right wing factional abstainers. I would say to their shame as well, but they have none.
Go Jeremy. https://t.co/g00ud42QEs

He’s certainly had a lot of support on his anniversary.
Thanks to Corbyn and the movement that grew around him, we have seen how popular left-wing policy positions can be. We now know they almost won a general election despite the most hostile press and Parliamentary Labour Party in political history
wrote Chelley Ryan in the Morning Star, adding:
There is a solidarity that runs deep amongst us all, forged during the Corbyn era.
In the same paper, David Rosenberg wrote about Mr Corbyn’s dedicated work fighting racism and fascism:
Very pleased to have a piece in the Morning Star this weekend celebrating the 40th anniversary of Jeremy Corbyn's election to Parliament. I wrote about his dedicated work fighting racism and fascism. Cable Street 1936 has a special place in his heart. https://t.co/a1Ss3WQiUU

And Lindsay German examined his life of pro-peace activism:
A tireless voice for peace
