Britain – A Statement: “The election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party, a political earthquake”
Socialist Resistance (Britain)
Socialist Resistance enthusiastically welcomes the election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party. Such a result seemed inconceivable after the Tory victory on May 7 and represents a political earthquake in British politics with the potential to regenerate and reshape the left 
The scale of Corbyn’s victory in the first round, over his lacklustre opponents,  deals a crushing blow to the New Labour machine which tried time and again throughout the campaign to undermine his ideas and his record without success.
