Maxine Peake backs Jeremy’s bid

Actor Maxine Peake has this evening given her backing to Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign to be leader of the Labour Party. 

Maxine said: “For me Jeremy Corbyn is our only beacon of hope to get the Labour Party back on track, get the electorate back in touch with politics and save this country from the constant mindless bullying of the vulnerable and poor. Aspirational? Surely we should all aspire that everyone living in this country has the right to a decent quality of life.”
