Have your say

It did not take long for the media to start stabbing Jeremy Corbyn in the back. I feel it is nice to have someone who is honest, stands by his principles and cares about all the people.

The last five years have shown that under the Tories it is a crime to be poor. They have cut legal aid to the bone and now want to silence the voice of the workers by picking a fight with the unions. And Cameron wants to amend the EU human rights charter. Under Tory rule, the workers are not entitled to a voice or rights. We already have the weakest workers’ rights in Europe. Cameron wants to take us back to the Victorian times. So much was made of Mr Corbyn not singing the National Anthem. That is his right. I have never sung the National Anthem and never will. A National Anthem should embrace the achievements and aspirations of the nation, not sing the praises of a so-called unelected head of state who is head of the most privileged family in the world. I am not unpatriotic – my sons served in the armed forces so did many of my family. No one can respect our armed forces more than me.
