UK Election 2017: The rise and rise of Jeremy Corbyn & Labour Party

Antara Ray Chaudhury

"The mandate for Brexit in 2016, made May believe that the British people are in favour of a more exclusivist Britain for Brits but she clearly failed to see or underestimated their aspirations, their frustrations and tensions. The underbelly of Britain was already facing the heat of 10 years of austerity politics and Corbyn with his socialist agendas has seized the moment. This is a watershed moment for the left liberals in UK and the world. If the labour party can now regroup under Corbyn’s leadership then there is a fair chance that they would win the next election and take Britain to a more egalitarian socialist path".
