Comment: Corbyn takes early lead in Labour leadership race

In YouGov’s first Labour leadership poll, Jeremy Corbyn leads with Andy Burnham close behind

Jeremy Corbyn could be Labour’s next leader. Until a few weeks ago I never imagined I would write such a sentence; but the figures from YouGov’s poll for The Times make that outcome distinctly possible. Before discussing the views of party members and supporters in more detail, let me address the obvious riposte – in the light of the polls’ performance in this year’s general election, why should we trust these latest figures?

  1. Oh Sarah! What have you done? You have certainly upset the Tories, those lurking inside the Labour Party especially, nice trick!

  2. Not heard anything of which way Rotherham area constituency members of the Labour Party are voting. The support for Jeremy Corbyn reflects that a large section of the population (especially the young ) who oppose austerity and racism have very few voices in parliament or local council chamber. Many around here, disillusioned with Labour nationally and locally either didn’t vote, or voted Labour, without illusions to keep UKIP out.
    I don’t personally believe the end of capitalism , and ushering in Socialism, will come through parliament (Look at Greece ), but the mood behind Corbyn is welcome.
