Become Podemos, Militant, Syriza, a screaming irrelevance:
Ben Riley-Smith, our political correspondent, was at Mr Corbyn’s leadership launch and has this on a change in stance on mandatory reselection.
He writes that every Labour MP will be forced to get reselected by their local party before the new general election, Jeremy Corbyn has said in a move that could effectively sack some of his most prominent critics.
The Labour leader said after the boundary review concludes in 2018 there will be a “full selection process in every constituency” to see who stands for Parliament.
Mr Corbyn promised to tackle inequality, neglect and prejudice if elected PM including plans to make companies publish equality pay audits.
He also said there would be a “full and open selection process” to choose every would-be Labour MP if new constituency boundaries were in place before 2020.
He said current MPs would be able to “put their name forward”.
You know what? I really, really, hope that I can make a bit of money in the next couple of years. Because then I’d stand for Ukip in a Northern seat. And I’d have, along with anyone else who isn’t a complete drooling moron, a good chance of gaining a seat in Parliament.
