Long Bailey: Corbyn Was The Right Leader

REBECCA Long Bailey has this morning sensationally said that Jeremy Corbyn was always the right man to lead Labour into the General Election.

She told Radio 4 Today “I supported Jeremy and still support Jeremy.”

“He was the right man to lead with the right moral integrity.”

She said, “Labour lost trust in leave areas, there was an inordinate amount of time spent on parliamentary manouevres” and “the party ended up with a compromise solution on Brexit rather than just emphasising the need for a good deal.”

On antisemitism she said behind the scenes she was “arguing for a faster disciplinary process.”

Yet she fails to mention it once in her Tribune article that launched her leadership bid.
