Jambo! (Swahili for hello) Two big events in the political arena:
Jeremy Corbyn is in the race for leadership of the Labour Party. Jeremy has been a solid supporter in the campaign for fair family immigration rules and if he is successful, we hope to finally see Labour differentiating itself from the Tories by adopting a pro-immigration, pro-family stance.
Charles Kennedy passed away this week. My impression of him was based only on what I saw of him on news satire shows, where he came across as good-humoured, and able to give as good as he took. Since his death, reports indicate politically he was very clued up, fair and not afraid to speak out against his own party's wrongdoings as he saw them. Tributes have poured in for him, making me wish more people got to hear about the difference they make to the lives of others whilst still alive. I hope Charles knew how valued he was by so many.
