Reasons to Support Jeremy
Born in Chippenham and raised in both Wiltshire and Shropshire, Corbyn joined Labour as a teenager. Moving to London, he became a trade union representative. In 1974, he was elected to Haringey Council and also became Secretary of Hornsey Constituency Labour Party, until elected as the MP for Islington North in 1983.
His activism has included roles in Anti-Fascist Action, the Anti-Apartheid Movement and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, and advocating for a united Ireland. As a backbench MP, he frequently voted against the Labour whip, including "New Labour" governments under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.
A vocal opponent of the Iraq War, he chaired the Stop the War Coalition from 2011 to 2015. He has received two international awards for his promotion of peace.
Representing The Labour Party
Jeremy is a member of the Labour party.
This means Jeremy will vote in line with Labour goals and principles.
In return the Labour party has provided practical support for Jeremy's campaign.
Jeremy is free to vote as he wishes however routinely voting against the party's principles will likely result in removal from the party, and so the loss of benefits associated with being their representative - so it should be a rare event.
The Labour Party Principles
We want to build a Britain that works for the many, not the few. That means building the homes we need to rent and buy, keeping our communities safe, giving our schools the funding they need, and restoring the NHS to its place as the envy of the world.
