Why I'm standing to be the next leader of the Labour Party.

I’ve spent my life fighting injustice and standing up to the powerful.

I’m now standing to be leader of our Labour Party because I’m determined to unite our movement, take on the Tories and build a better future.

Labour only wins when we’re united and when we have a radical vision of the future that people can trust.

If I’m elected leader, I’ll bring the movement together and I’ll retain the radicalism of the last four years.

We are an anti-austerity party. We believe in common ownership. We want a fairer and more peaceful world. We have led the way on climate change and the need for a Green New Deal.

These are the pillars on which we must build.

We must argue for a fairer tax system, for social security to be based on support and dignity and for a migration system that is welcoming and compassionate. We must be a force for economic justice, social justice and international justice.

And if we’re to beat the Tories, we need to work together.

We need to work much more closely with our fantastic Labour councillors, mayors and with Welsh and Scottish Labour.

We need to be an effective Opposition in Parliament and able to win the argument in the country.

We need to be more open, more welcoming and more inclusive.

We’ve lost four elections – we can’t lose again.

If all parts of the labour and trade union movement come together, we can achieve anything.

Another future is possible.
