Why I’m Hoping Jeremy Corbyn Launches A New Party

If he had of created a real left wing party I firmly believe we’d be leading the polls by now, especially considering the platform of policies we espoused in the 2017/2019 manifesto’s.

He had that responsibility to serve as our Prime Minister and he’s let us all down in my opinion.
