Jeremy Corbyn Brighton visit is history in the making

Left Political

The Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn visited the Brighton Centre on Friday morning to speak at a UNISON conference but it’s what happened afterwards that made the headlines and although subtle, it was arguably a piece of history in the making.

Jeremy Corbyn speaking on Brighton seafront

Jeremy Corbyn had just days ago lost a general election to the Conservatives. In any other year the leader of the losing party would have resigned and most likely be forgotten, but this is no ordinary year and this is no ordinary leader of a party.

Theresa May called a highly unexpected snap general election. She had a comfortable majority and was heading into a two year negotiation to exit the European Union.
