Thousands welcome Jeremy Corbyn to Sussex

Jeremy Corbyn will address protesters at an anti-austerity demonstration in London later.”What comes out of it is a potential new alliance for Labour”.John Rees, a writer and activist with the People’s Assembly, which part-organised the protest said he wanted to force the government to call another election.When the march reached Parliament Square, a minute’s silence was held “in memory and respect” to the victims of Grenfell Tower. We’re marching against a Government committed to austerity, cuts and privatisation. Safety concerns were ignored.”Members of my family rely on disability and carers’ benefits and I have witnessed first-hand the impact of austerity on those who are most vulnerable”.”Labour gained seats across the country at the last general election, in every region and nation of Britain”.Referencing recent suggestions from ministers that the Government could ease austerity, Corbyn added: “The Tories are in retreat, austerity is in retreat, the economic arguments of austerity are in retreat”. “We’re marching for a decent health service, education system, housing, jobs and living standards for all”, it added. We’ve seen that not just in the election, but since.Labour has been using the fallout of the Grenfell Tower disaster to agitate against the Tories and for private homes of the wealthy to be seized for weeks.Mr S only asked after witnessing Smith’s interview with Sky’s Sophy Ridge.Just 22% of that group said they felt Labour had moved closer towards the interests of “traditional working-class supporters”.In reference to the Tories’ deal with the DUP, he said: “I say to any public sector workers in Northern Ireland or anywhere else – don’t have any illusions in these people, when they started the austerity programme they meant it and they meant it to carry on and carry on”.The MP for West Bromwich East urged activists to focus on winning over voters in Labour’s traditional working-class heartlands rather than changing party rules to strengthen Mr Corbyn’s position.The co-authors, Diamond and Charlie Cadywould, said: “A “one more push” approach at the next election may be enough to allow Labour to cobble together an unstable minority government, but much more is needed to win an outright majority even of one, let alone a comprehensive victory which would produce a two- or three-term government able to deliver radical reform”.
