Listen To The Authentic Voice Of The People by David Morgan
“The summer of 2015 has also seen the rise of Jeremy Corbyn MP to almost super star status as a candidate in the battle for the leadership of the Labour Party following the party’s shock election defeat in May. Despite being the oldest candidate in the race, he has attracted mass support from young people because his message of free education, jobs and housing reflects their concerns. His success has been described as “Corbymania” and is widely attributed to his honest approach to politics. Many of the young people who have found his message appealing have never been politically engaged before; so the long term challenge will be to ensure that they don’t become disaffected in future.
Honesty in politics might seem a very modest demand but not so when you consider the scale of the recent expenses fiddling by elected members which has even led to a few culprits spending time languishing behind bars.
In Iraq, meanwhile, politicians had been accused of carrying cash out of the country in suitcases as state budgets went missing and donations from the international community intended to rebuild essential infrastructure simply disappeared. Mass protests of people disgusted with persisting political corruption are presently occurring across Iraq, which is potentially one of the wealthiest countries in the Arab world, but where today the living conditions of most people have been reduced to the level of one of the poorest undeveloped states.” – David
