Something wonderful happened in the summer of 2015. After years of being told that there is no alternative to austerity, hundreds of thousands of people stood up for a new kind of politics and agreed with Jeremy Corbyn that austerity is a political choice not a necessity.
A quarter of a million people voted for Jeremy Corbyn to become Labour’s Leader. Then the 2015 Labour conference gave its resounding backing to Jeremy and his Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, to turn Labour into an anti-austerity party of hope and bold alternatives.
Throughout the campaign, Jeremy spoke about building a social movement to work for a more democratic, equal and decent society. And now we have to show how we can change not only politics, locally and nationally, but the country itself.
