ISLINGTON North MP Jeremy Corbyn has announced this afternoon (Wednesday) that he is standing as a candidate for the Labour leadership.
He is the candidate for the Labour Left faction in Parliament, and said he is standing on a “clear anti-austerity platform”.
Mr Corbyn said: “This decision to stand is in response to an overwhelming call by Labour Party members who want to see a broader range of candidates and a thorough debate about the future of the party. I am standing to give Labour Party members a voice in this debate.”
