There’s a mountain to climb for Labour supporters but we need to use the upcoming campaign to shine a spotlight on the party’s exciting and transformative policies, writes CHELLEY RYAN

JEREMY CORBYN doesn’t do spin so neither will I. I’m feeling a strong sense of trepidation over the upcoming general election and I’m furious that I’ve been made to feel that way.
We have an honest, principled and inspiring leader in Corbyn. There is not a day that goes by when I don’t feel grateful he’s our eader with John McDonnell as his wing man, and the recent policy announcements have put a real spring in my step.
These are the policies our country so desperately needs. A £10-an-hour living wage, free school meals for all primary school pupils, a 17 per cent increase in the carer’s allowance, a clampdown on late payments by big corporations to small struggling suppliers, and so many more.
Then there was Corbyn’s calm and measured statement on the recent bombings by the US — focused on diplomacy and peace as opposed to the statements that sprung from the Labour right, as they suddenly morphed from anti-Trump liberals into Trump’s most ardent cheerleaders.
There is not a day that goes by when I’m not grateful these focus groupobsessed, unprincipled, hawkish, weathercocks are not leading our party.
They’ve done everything in their substantial power to toxify the Labour brand since Corbyn won the leadership. Thinking we were three years out from a general election, they flew through the party like a tornado, leaving chaos and destruction in their wake, and then stood back to admire their handiwork.
