The more I think about it, the more optimistic I feel about Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour leadership campaign. I sincerely think Mr Corbyn has a shot at not just winning the leadership but actually becoming Prime Minister in five years – yes really – for two big, specific reasons that nobody seems to be discussing… read more
