Corbyn aims for more working-class MPs

Monday 24th August 2015

JEREMY CORBYN pledged to open up Parliament to those on the sharp end of the Tory class war yesterday by subsidising the selection campaigns of poorer activists seeking to become MPs.

A “diversity fund” would seek to address the paucity of working-class MPs on the Labour benches, he said.

Currently just 7 per cent of the party’s parliamentarians come from a background of manual work — compared to 12 per cent who were privately educated.

“If at the next election we as a party have hardly any candidates from the front line of Tory cuts then it will be very hard to be heard by voters we need to win back,” Mr Corbyn said.
