UNISON comment on Jeremy Corbyn winning the Labour leadership election

Commenting on the Labour leadership result today (Saturday), UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis said: 

“Today people for the first time in a decade are hearing a message of hope.

“A clarion call that there is another way, an alternative message that it doesn’t need to be like this. People see in Jeremy a politician who has created a wave, a vision of a better, kinder world that works for everyone, not just a self-serving few‎.

“‎Jeremy has ignited a spark of hope, a spark that had been dampened for decades. This is a chance to claim back the heart and the soul of the party and make it our Labour Party once more‎.”
