    Why did you vote for him over the others?

    Congratulations to Jeremy Corbyn on being elected as the new Labour leader. Will Labour win in 2020?

    Is that because he was doing well though? If you do well you get more media attention which then helps you do better.

    It's a repeating cycle. Do well, get media attention so you do better, so you get more media attention...

    He has some viewpoints that I think are - for want of a better word - positively barmy, but he aligns the most with where I am politically.

    I suppose I would like to have a leader who is unapologetic and vehemently opposed to the Tory party. He may not be enough to get Labour into No. 10, but he can get the Tories out.

    I don't have powers here so can't. Only in hobbies and interests.

    I just happened to watch it so thought I'd make one. Probably made at a very similar time.

    Absolutely over the moon. He is the only true Labour option who will stand up to the disgusting corporate elites who wish to further their monopolies and enslave us all to corporate jobs and debt. We may be less rich materialistically but life is about more than possessions, it is about social cohesion, relationships, communities and sharing moments with loved families and friends. We must now turn Britain back into a country that cares about people, not just profits. A country that wants to bring back communities whereby people know their neighbours rather than not knowing them due to the pressures of society.

    This, for me, is the first time I have been interested in British politics on any serious level since I've been eligible to vote. I have old labour socialist values at heart and whilst I am not deluded enough to believe the 60's and 70's weren't without their problems, I'm also not deluded enough to believe that it was all bad back then. Nearly every single older person I've spoken with (life experience) has told me that people cared more for one another back then, less violence (people getting glassed and stabbed) and whilst people were less well off financially, they were richer in heart, richer in compassion and richer in a sense of belonging and community!

    Societies should be built around people, not money. That is how we move forward from here. That is progressivism.

    Exactly.

    Also he seemed to be putting himself out there more than the other candidates and doing more.

    His speech is really great. I'm very relieved that he was elected leader, I hope that he can deliver on the massive expectations put on him.
