Congratulations Jeremy Corbyn - Congrats UK!

Jeremy Corbyn addressed a Labour Party special conference after winning the leadership race with 60% of the vote.

Corbyn, who began the contest as the outsider, beat frontbenchers Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall after a three-month campaign.

At the conference, where both Corbyn and his deputy Tom Watson were elected, the new leader thanked people in the party, spoke about the campaign, and gave a flavour of his priorities for his leadership.

The big difference is that Corbyn is a long-time anti-imperialist who talks about the ever expanding NATO, nukes, military spending, and stopping the US-UK's endless wars - this helped him to unite the left across the UK as he connected all the dots....
