On 6 November, Jeremy Corbyn delivered a speech in Telford. But one line in particular summed up exactly how a Corbyn government would be different:
I want to seek power for our party in order to share that power out across the country
No silver spoons here
Corbyn’s speech was blistering. He took aim at the politics that is all about “shouting matches in parliament” and stated that he wanted to share “power and wealth with people who don’t have a lot of money, don’t have friends in high places”. He also highlighted the difference between himself and the Conservative Party elite, saying:
I was not born to rule.

Once in a generation
Corbyn claims this election is a “once-in-a-generation chance to transform our country”. And if he’s serious about returning real power to the people of this country, then he’s right.
We have a clear choice between elitist snobs who will do everything they can to screw over ordinary people, or a prime minister who genuinely wants to transform all our lives. The choice shouldn’t be simpler.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
