Today Jeremy Corbyn issued his policy on combating street harassment. We are two of the women that were involved in suggesting the seven proposals outlined in this document. This year alone we have been on empty Tube carriages while a man has masturbated, been followed home, felt the need to abort journeys on public transport, and felt wary to report assault to the police.
Black Monday is the reason why Britain needs to step up its role in the European Union and the global arena. Those who have persistently argued that Britain needs to leave Europe completely disregarded the impact of globalisation and the growing economic interaction between states.
I don't want to see a re-hash of decrepit, old economic policies that do nothing to push us forward. Corbyn's policy of using quantitative easing to pay for infrastructure is a perfect example of this.
Even the British Transport Police believe that women-only carriages would be a "retrograde step in Great Britain, which could be thought of as insulting, patronising and shaming to both men and women".
I will admit the road back to recovery still looks long, but I believe that if we start this journey by building a Labour party that looks different, thinks different and sounds different we will quickly start to rebuild trust with the British people. To do this I believe we need a leader who represents something different and already connects with those he meets, somebody who can not only unite our party, but restore Labour's place in the hearts of the British people. That man is Andy Burnham.
Much of the personal attacks have been aimed at Jeremy Corbyn, with the Blairite wing of the party in a state of panic at the amount of support he has gathered. But make no mistake, personal attacks work both ways and it is not just the right wing of the party that is making these petty remarks.
I'm confident that under Andy Burnham's leadership, the future for the small business community is in good hands. But importantly, this is not at the expense of side-lining bigger businesses or the self-employed.
This week, reports warned that some of the country's largest care home providers may be at risk of financial collapse as a result of the government's recent increase in the minimum wage. Sadly this didn't come as a surprise, since it's widely known both that social care providers are chronically under-funded and carers are chronically under-paid. But the warnings did offer a timely reminder of the larger crisis facing social care, of which staffing costs are just the tip of the iceberg.
With or without Corbyn as their leader, the Labour Party has a very long road ahead with many dead ends and cul-de-sacs along the way. At the risk of 'labouring' the biblical metaphors, it's a road to Damascus that many of the sitting Labour MPs and their supporters will need to be dragged kicking and screaming down, amid the potential implosion of the party.
The scale of Ukip's popularity should not be underestimated, but has triggered a reaction from the Westminster bubble. Both Labour and the Conservatives now have five more years to tackle the issues Ukip are so popular on, and will do so with ease given their major influence in parliament.
Thus, it is not Jeremy Corbyn who has questions to answer, it is those who supported the war in Iraq, the bombing of Libya, who provide unquestioning support to Israel, and little or nothing to say over Britain's shameful relationship with Saudi Arabia.
With Britain now economically one of Europe's strongest nations, unemployment down and inflation at record lows, Corbyn's tax and spend plan would send the UK back to the days when the wealthy would leave for tax havens abroad. And the nation would sink into debt and even currency devaluation.
The argument often used against principled humanitarians - like Corbyn - when they point out this offensive hypocrisy that all too readily goes unchallenged in the west, is that "intentions" somehow make one act of mass murder better than another.
I don't think Corbyn will ever be accused of being led by the public mood. He has principles and direction in abundance and for these reasons alone is better-placed than the Miliband-paralysis of his leadership rivals.
Many in the media predicted a dull Labour leadership contest, how wrong those people were. In the excitement of the past few weeks it has been hard for anyone not to adopt a stance on this subject.
Every Labour Party member is currently drowning in a sea of paper. Some have suffered only minor paper cuts; others haven't been so lucky. I have received roughly 23 letters since I wrote the previous sentence. My postman has suffered a nervous breakdown. Enough is enough.
