As 72 year-old Neil Kinnock pointed out, it's unlikely he'll ever see another Labour government in his lifetime. My son is 20 and, at this rate, he is unlikely to see a Labour government in his lifetime either.
It's been a subdued conference in Liverpool for Labour. One source told me that in terms of policy, there's not actually that much on the table: Corbyn is only now diverting his team away from political firefighting to building a platform. How Labour approaches the task after the mayoral election here and in Manchester next May might be more definitive for its future than a summer spent feuding.
We look forward to working with Jeremy to ensure that the Labour Party is a welcoming place where Disabled People can get involved in political activity and influence the Labour Party's policies, ensuring that they are underpinned by the social model of disability.
Following the announcement of Jeremy Corbyn's second Labour leadership victory over the weekend, moderates in the party have now been left at a crossroads - do they stay or do they go? With Labour embroiled in a civil war that has turned ideological disagreements in to chasms of discontent, the temptation must be there for 'moderates' in the Labour Party to jump ship.
The main point is simply that class still exists, that it manifests itself in things that matter, and that the solutions lie as much in regional and housing policy as they do in education and other forms of opportunity. And that this might be a good area for those on the left to explore, and Liverpool is as good a backdrop as any to start that exploration.
Surely miners deserve our respect, our empathy and our gratitude for what they gave for us. Tragically, people who gave the best years of their lives in service of the nation feel like nobody cares about what they have been through, and are still going through. This has to stop.
Labour is clear on the long-term direction of travel of the British economy. The Tories are trying to lock the country into the old, dirty technologies that harm our communities and the people who are forced to live with disruption on their doorstep... By contrast, Labour will back the clean technologies of the future, and make sure the opportunities for good jobs, investment and a safe environment are shared across the whole of the UK.
Establishment politicians have failed to deliver for the ordinary voter. The Labour party led by a Blairite of a bygone age will be punished by the electorate and will have no chance in a general election. A Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn will have the best chance of beating the Tories if only rebel Labour MPs could see that.
After a gut-wrenching summer my choice is now clear. How can I, a Jew and a Zionist, remain in a party where the leadership is so clearly hostile to Israel (even to its very existence) and which also flirts with antisemitism? In the end it was an easy decision, but that makes it none the less painful.
With hundreds of his own MPs having no confidence in his leadership, Jeremy Corbyn is simply incapable of uniting his own party, let alone leading the country. But whilst it would be easy to sit back and watch Labour continue to tear itself apart, we in the Conservative Party have a duty to expose just how dangerous, expensive, and downright reckless the policies that they offer now are.
Now that the coup is over, media hoo-hah should start to die down a little bit about Corbyn and, now he's the Labour leader once more, it will be far easier for Jeremy's vision, message and policies to reach the wider electorate should he campaign effectively. I've confidence that as Jeremy's message pushes further into the public eye, much of the electorate will begin to realise that they support most of what Jeremy plans for the country.
No one has to remain a member of Labour, should you disagree with the path the party is taking any member has the right to stop their support. Many decent Labour members did just that under Tony Blair, many others will take the same decision now. The time, for me at least, to stop supporting the party has come with the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn.
I want to thank the volunteers on my campaign, on Owen Smith's campaign, and to Owen himself and to all the Party staff who worked so hard over the summer. It has been an amazing summer all over Britain our Labour family facing the future. And I will do everything I can to repay that trust and that support to bring our party together to make it an engine of progress for our country and the people that depend on the Labour Party to protect their interests and win power to deliver real change. Elections are passionate and partisan affairs things are often said in the heat of the debate on all sides that we later regret. But always remember in our party, we have much more in common than that which divides us. As far as I'm concerned the slate is wiped clean from today.
The leadership campaign may be over but for Labour the real work now begins. Labour MPs had our say before the summer. Labour members had their say over the summer. Now it's time to give our full attention to the public. The immediate imperative is to deal with the divisions of the campaign. A political Party that argues with itself is unable to take the argument to the wider electorate... So we need the basis for a fresh start for Labour's frontbench, to put behind us the stand-off between Labour MPs and Leader. The responsibility to do so lies with both.
So Corbyn has done it. After a year of bullying and vile comments centered towards him, he has won the Leadership Election with a 61.8% share of the vote, which means his mandate has increased from 59.5%.
It might be all over for Brangelina but pop culture and politics is the power couple that's here to stay. It is perhaps a headline more suited to tab...
