Jeremy Corbyn hints he’ll stand in next general election as he marks 40 years in Parliament

Jeremy Corbyn chats with one or two friends in his constituency… Oh, all right. This is in fact how he was greeted in Leeds, back in 2017.

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.

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:

And Lindsay German examined his life of pro-peace activism:

    War creates wealth, the poor are sent to fight and die to protect this wealth. Once the war is over the soldiers are forgotten and if they were disabled in any way they will be tossed onto the scrapheap and forgotten about.

    After everything that Jeremy Corbyn has achieved the right wing will use anything they can to accuse him of being a traitor, a racist, antisemite, you name it he will be accused of it and yet the voices defending him are never heard in the mainstream media because the rich elite don’t want it known. Lets hope the labour party as it stands self destructs where there will be no one left to blame but themselves.
