  2. Jeremy Corbyn Biography

    Jeremy Bernard Corbyn (born 26 May 1949) is a British politician who is Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition. He has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Islington North since 1983.Born in Chippenham, Wiltshire, Corbyn briefly attended North London Polytechnic before going on to work as an official for the National Union of Public Employees and the Amalgamated Engineering and Electrical Union, and for the National Union of Tailors and Garment Workers as a union representative. He began his political career in 1974, when he was elected to Haringey Council, and also served as Secretary of the Islington Constituency Labour Party (CLP); he continued in these roles until his election as the MP for Islington North.A self-described democratic socialist, Corbyn advocates the renationalisation of public utilities and of the railways, combatting corporate tax evasion and avoidance as an alternative to the government's austerity programme, abolishing university tuition fees and restoring student grants, a unilateral policy of nuclear disarmament, quantitative easing to fund infrastructure and renewable energy projects, and reversing cuts to public sector and welfare funding made since 2010. He is a member of the Socialist Campaign Group, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Amnesty International and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), and is the National Chair of the Stop the War Coalition.On 6 June 2015, Corbyn announced his candidacy for the leadership of the Labour Party. Although he was initially regarded as a fringe hopeful in the leadership election, Corbyn became the lead candidate in opinion polls and secured the support of the majority of trades unions affiliated to the Labour Party, as well as three non-affiliated unions. On 12 September 2015, he was elected Labour Party Leader, with 59.5% of the votes in the first round of the ballot.
