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.
This is a vision worth striving for, matched with policies designed to deliver it. Who would Aneurin Bevan have supported as Leader of today's Labour Party? Answer: Jeremy Corbyn, no doubt.
It was helpful of Jeremy Corbyn to publish an eight-page economic manifesto last month. We can now be 100% sure that his policies would scare every major company away from the UK for good.
Like it or not, political parties are brands - just try Googling 'political parties as brands' to see how many people have 'proved' this. Politicians have to stand out in a crowded and noisy marketplace, just like other brands. So why does the undifferentiated - or, to be fair, the less differentiated - middle work for them in a way that doesn't apply to consumer goods? What sets politics apart?
Election campaigns do invigorate and clarify, but in recent weeks we have at times given the impression that we are arguing with each other rather than taking the Tories to task or debating what Labour needs to do to hold true to its values and win. It's about giving leadership and I believe the best candidate to do that and to bring us together as a stronger Labour Party at the next General Election is Andy Burnham.
There is more than a whiff of irony surrounding claims that Corbyn and his ilk are stuck in the past because a left-wing manifesto failed in 1983, an irony that quickly graduates to outright hypocrisy when Blairism is then quickly suggested as the formula to emulate.
I hope I'm wrong but Ed Miliband's restructuring of the voting system means that Corbyn will win and probably by a long margin. So come the 12th September, we'll have one man to thank for the death of the Labour Party: Ed Miliband.
