Jeremy Corbyn

on making the world a fairer place

On 12th September 2015 Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour Party in a landslide victory. On that day he spoke of some of the people who have inspired him on his extraordinary journey. He said: ‘The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love..’ The author of that quote was Ben Okri.

Okri responded with a poem dedicated to Corbyn called A New Dream of Politics.
