Two months on - and despite much media coverage being relentlessly anti-Jeremy - we can see that the new way of doing politics Jeremy stands for is starting to shift the political landscape in Britain, shaking the Government on key issues (most notably cuts to working families' tax credits) and bringing new support to the Labour Party.
The truth is, I don't know what the hell to think. I don't want to drop bombs that kill innocent civilians. At the moment I can't see how more bombs upon bombs would help. But I also think sitting doing nothing is not an option either. I've spoken to Syrian constituents of mine who think the UK should take military action. I've also read accounts of Syrian children scared of the sky. For every action a perfect and equal opposite reaction. What galls me about this more than anything, is that my role in this, my vote, my shuffle through the lobby is so widely discussed and dissected in the media, by my party, by their party by people in the country and it is all still speculation. No vote has been called. No discussion has been had.
The election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party was as unsurprising as it is likely to be destructive to the party for at least the next five years. Yet the dire prospects for the future of the Party stem from a far deeper rot than simply the policies of Mr. Corbyn himself; the conduct of his supporters betrays a disturbing intolerance that will only further split and discredit the Party.
Boris Johnson has raised fares astronomically and Londoners now face some of the highest fares in the world. Zac Goldsmith is another Tory cut from the same cloth as Boris Johnson - a right-winger posing as a maverick. Like Boris Johnson, Goldsmith argues against cutting fares. Labour needs a mayor who offers a clear alternative.
The fight to cut air pollution in London is literally a life and death matter. Some 9,500 Londoners die from air pollution every year - with the poorest parts of the capital worst hit by pollution. London has the highest levels of air pollution of any European capital. Air pollution affects all Londoners - from being in the dirtiest busiest thoroughfares like the Euston Road to the schools and workplaces we travel to daily. But it is London's poorest and most vulnerable that are affected most and that is simply unjust.
