Jeremy's commitment to the anti-war movement makes him one of very few politicians to want to put a human face on our foreign policy. The same is needed at home.
Stopping the cuts and creating sustainable growth through investment is only the beginning. In an economy characterised by debt, low wages, collapsing workers' rights, youth unemployment, insecure work and failing public services, we don't just need an end to austerity but a different way of doing politics. We need politics that sticks by working class people, that stands with women, ethnic minorities, LGBTQ people and all those marginalised by austerity but also by society in general.
This is what Jeremy means when he says he wants Labour to be a 'social movement' – not just a party of protest but a movement that is at the heart of our communities, sticking up for people and turning politics into something that speaks with us rather than over us. A vote in a leadership election can't do that alone. But it's a step in the right direction.
