Jeremy specifically emphasised the threat of the US-EU trade deal TTIP… NAFTA on Steroids. He called for TTIP’s rejection not only in terms of its well publicised threat to the NHS and public services but also because of the international threat that it poses to worker and environmental protection legislation across Europe, the UK and the US.
In this speech, Jeremy Corbyn demonstrates by example, just how far the current Labour Party has lost its way. In a recent hustings speech, he was more overt:
“We’ve become cowed by powerful commercial interests, frightened of the press, frightened to stand up for what we absolutely believe in. I want a more equal society, a fairer society, a world at peace not at war. I want a LP at the heart of the community that is demanding those jobs, homes and hope for everyone, so that they can live in a society that is more equal. We are moving in the wrong direction at the present time – let’s turn it around and move the other way.”
