Bernie Sanders: “The age we now live in is crying out for a Jeremy Corbyn”

Bernie Sanders has given his backing to Labour in a rousing speech in which he outlines why the age we live in is crying out for a Jeremy Corbyn.

Sanders is the longest serving independent in US congressional history and recently ran against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nominee in the 2016 election.

He gained a world-wide reputation for delivering powerful speeches and has now given his support to Corbyn with less than a week until the General Election.

He said: “What has impressed me – and there is a real similarity between what he has done and what I did – is he has taken on the establishment of the Labour party, he has gone to the grassroots and he has tried to transform that party … and that is exactly what I am trying to do,” said Sanders.

“I am also impressed by his willingness to talk about class issues,” he added during a sold-out speech at the Brighton festival. “Too many people run away from the grotesque levels of income and wealth inequality that exist in the United States, the UK and all over the world. We will never make the kind of changes we need unless we take on the levels of inequality that exist.”

    True, get rid of the [[[this comment has been deleted due to its highly offensive nature]]] Causers of all misery. The tories belong to the rothchilds.

      What a sad misguided person you are. Have you not learnt anything from the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis, yet you echo similar views completely out of place in a civilised tolerant society. Clearly your views are closer to the misguided, ignorant element of our modern age who only see and understand what they read in the gutter press. By all means express your political opinion but leave out racist comments. You belong to the dark ages of society and do not reflect the sacrifice and suffering that a whole generation went through to rid Europe of similar like minded people as yourself.

      Can you please quickly delete the highly offensive anti-Semitic comment from Mr Arnold? It is deeply unpleasant and will only provide our enemies with evidence that Corbyn’s supporters are racist.

      The last thing the Labour Party needs is people like you, take your hate and go sit with those on the far right you’ll find a much more sympathetic ear from them.

      Fucking anti-Semitic scumbag. Fuck off, you’re not wanted in the Labour party or on our streets you vile piece of shit.

      This is the sort of thing that tories write in comments sections when they want to damage the Labour Party. They try to pass themselves off as Labour supporters when they are clearly not.

    He’s a nice guy and there was a lot of love in the room. I think he fell short of endorsing JC, – Americans don’t do irony very well! His speech was a litany of facts about inequality. It was presented like a familiar old hat and he kept saying “this country” when he meant the USA. Not a great orator, but it was nice to think that there is at least one American liberal still in existence.
