On Tuesday 29th September, Islington North MP, Jeremy Corbyn, gave his first speech to Labour Party Conference as Leader of the Labour Party.
Following Jeremy’s victory in the Leadership contest, he has set out his new direction of honest, straight talking politics.
Jeremy’s speech showed that it’s time for grown-up politics as he set out how Labour will build a better, more caring and prosperous society based on the values of decency, justice and equality.
We are building a new politics that involves real debate. A vision rooted in British values and committed to mutual respect.
Jeremy showed that Labour can provide a real alternative to the Tories’ failed austerity, by investing for the future and giving economic security to families -; campaigning against tax credit cuts, and looking at new ways to support Britain’s growing number of self-employed people.
