Labour conference: Hope unites party, says Corbyn
26 September 2015
From the section UK Politics
Jeremy Corbyn has dismissed reports of divisions as he arrived in Brighton for his first conference as Labour leader saying there was “hope” in the party.
Differences are expected to emerge over issues such as the renewal of Trident, possible military action in Syria, and the referendum on EU membership.
But Mr Corbyn said more united Labour than divided it.
Shadow chancellor John McDonnell said earlier that democratic decision-making should not be confused with division.
Mr Corbyn was greeted by Labour’s new deputy leader Tom Watson outside his hotel and posed for photographs with cheering supporters.
Asked what could be expected from the conference, the Islington North MP, who became Labour leader on 12 September, said “more hope and more optimism”.
He added: “Look at the unity out here.”
“Look at the hope people have got for a decent society where there is decent housing, decent education, a decent health service and hope for young people. That is what unites this party.”
