Well done Jeremy, well done the Labour party, well done young British people for getting out to support, well done the British people in general for showing that a good solid socialist manifesto can get as much as 40% of the vote (and welcome back some of you daft eejits that supported UKIP before)..
This result puts to bed all the previous silly talk of unelectable people and ideas too radical to gain wide support. The Labour program in health, education, equality, the work place, etc was a clear, strong, left wing one and it was received well across the UK because people see that it would really benefit them in all those areas. Let's build on that...
"Meanwhile, the leftwing opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn of the Labour party – who had been written off before the campaign as unelectable, extreme and incompetent – saw his personal ratings and those of his party rise, and stunned pundits by gaining 31 seats, giving Labour a total of 261 MPs.
Labour defied the odds to win around 40% of the vote, with the Tories on 42%. Corbyn’s aides said the jump in the party’s share since previous leader Ed Miliband won 30% in 2015 was the largest between two general elections for any party since 1945. It was also higher than the 35.2% won by Labour’s Tony Blair in his third election victory in 2005."
Published in July 2017 - THE STORY OF LEE banded set. Special edition of only 200.
"Lee, living in Hong Kong, meets Matt, a fine young Scot. Their relationship becomes stronger by the day, despite their deep cultural differences. But there is Lee's dad to contend with who views this affair very suspiciously. And there is another contender for Lee's heart, a young Chinese man, whose jealousy takes on twinges of xenophobia. Will Lee and Matt's relationship successfully cross the cultural divide and overcome the negative odds?"
This is a good deal, with volume 1 and volume 2 of the book packaged together with a specially printed band (or ‘obi’ as they called in Japan).
