UK -Europe
2017-06-12 / By Dr Cyriac Maprayil


In the early hours of Friday morning it became increasingly apparent that the British people were a force to be reckoned with and democracy was alive and well. Theresa May’s Tory government had slept through an election campaign that according to The Independent newspaper ‘spent more than £1 million’ on an anti – labour smear campaign on social media.

In sharp contrast Corbyn led the Labour campaign with positivity and vigour – reaching out to the youth vote, those in public service and those who simply wanted a change from the uncertainty of May’s government who had shown on more than one occasion that unlike Margaret Thatcher – this lady was willing to turn and turn again.

Under Corbyn’s leadership Labour returned to uphold the values of the working people that had originally brought it into existence. His vision and his priorities spoke to those who keep our country running; the emergency services, those who work for the NHS and the educators. Whether or not Corbyn would have been able to deliver every one of the promises he made we will never know but what is certain is that he would have given it a damn good try and the ordinary people of Britain saw in him something unusual and precious in the murky world of Politics – integrity and tenacity. What is more, the faith of the British public does not seem to be waning with the results of the election. According to the Metro newspaper some 150, 000 new members have joined since Thursday.
