“But with that independence comes insecurity and risk – especially for those on the lowest and most volatile incomes”.
A pledge by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to abolish tuition fees and reintroduce maintenance grants will go out to consultation within the party, according to Blackpool South MP Gordon Marsden.
Corbyn filled the speech with the new direction of the Labour party, pledging to “put kindness back to politics” and the U.K.’s “misogynistic and abusive politics”.
The recently elected leader spoke for almost an hour in front of a packed out Brighton Centre.
“In every community and workplace, not just at Westminster”.
While moderates in the party have said they will respect his mandate, there are several policy areas where he is at odds with many fellow lawmakers, including over the renewal of Britain’s Trident nuclear deterrent and membership of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
He also reiterated his belief that Trident should be scrapped but said that this was a personal view.
The CWU general secretary, Dave Ward, said: “We are delighted to host such a high-profile public meeting and invite the people of Manchester and the surrounding areas to come out in force to support the People’s Post and debate the future of our country“.
He used his speech to repeatedly attack the media for the reporting of his leadership, adding that he meant to have genuine, honest debate within the party and its 160,000-strong new members. It is believed that thousands of people will tune in on TV and radio to see what this new leader can offer.
On his own role, Mr Murray said: “The shadow cabinet needs a strong Scottish voice because we have big issues in Scotland in terms of the Scotland Bill, the elections coming up and developing a policy platform for Scotland”.
He will insist: “I love this country and its people”.
“It is this sense of fair play, these shared majority British values, that are the fundamental reason I love this country and its people”.
“It is common knowledge that I didn’t support him as leader but I do share a lot of his values”.
Yesterday Mr Corbyn said: “Inheritance tax has been reduced so the richest 60,000 families have suddenly had a huge tax break”.
But a few in the party worry this will leave voters confused about what Labour stands for before local and regional elections in May next year, Corbyn’s first major electoral test. He was pictured putting finishing touches to the speech with red socks and sandals on.
