Want to cast a vote against austerity?
You can now – courtesy of the imminent Labour Party leadership election.
This is because one of the candidates in the election is Jeremy Corbyn MP, a lifelong campaigner on the left of the party who has explicitly opposed austerity policies.
And you can vote for him WITHOUT being a member of the Labour Party. All you need to do is become a registered supporter of the Labour Party – which costs only £3 (more on http://support.labour.org.uk/ ).
Jeremy was against the Iraq war, a strong supporter of Tony Benn and is among the greenest of MPs this side of Caroline Lucas.
He also came to Thanet in recent months to canvass against UKIP.
Here he is speaking at a recent anti-austerity rally in London.
The deadline to register is August 12 and the ballot closes on 10 September.
