COMMUNICATION Workers Union leader Dave Ward pledged full support for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the face of relentless attacks today.
“The right of Labour are considering a new party and are likely to announce it soon for maximum impact before Labour conference,” said Mr Ward whose union is one of Labour’s largest.
“It will be made up of the same people who never stood up for working people, never changed society and will never have the bottle to challenge the growing concentration of power and wealth in the UK, Europe and the world.”
Critics of Mr Corbyn had nothing to offer, Mr Ward said.
“The common theme running through every single attack is that none of his detractors have any answers to the problems this country faces.
“I’ll keep supporting an agenda that ends the housing crisis and homelessness, puts our NHS back together, takes back control of public services and delivers a new deal,” he said.
“Jeremy Corbyn is the leader of this agenda and that’s why the CWU stands with him.”
