Today’s Labour Party Is More In Tune With The Needs Of Our Communities Than Ever Before

By Ian Hodson The recent by-elections in Stoke and Copeland have seen the mainstream media and it’s political allies in Westminster go into orbit with their attacks on Jeremy Corbyn and the current direction of the Labour Party.
