Jeremy Corbyn says he will be “happy to serve” in Rebecca Long-Bailey’s shadow cabinet

Jeremy Corbyn said he was “happy to serve” in a shadow cabinet led by Rebecca Long-Bailey.

The shadow trade secretary, who gave Labor leader 10/10, said he would offer Mr. Corbyn a role if he won the competition to succeed him.

Ms. Long-Bailey, who rejects the “continuity” candidate label, said she would do it because “I love him that way”.

When asked about the job offer, Corbyn said, “I’ll see what it is, I didn’t know I would be offered anything.

He added: “I am happy to serve the party in any capacity.

“My whole life has been made to give my contribution in Parliament, to take account of the government and to have spoken in political areas.



Speaking after visiting the flood victims in South Wales, Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “Since I became the party leader, our attendance has tripled to 600,000.

“We have developed policies to share wealth in our society, to challenge austerity and inequality and we have fought elections on these promises.

“I fully recognize that we didn’t win the election, but Brexit was an abyss that was too big for us to cross during those elections.

“I simply say to everyone who wants to analyze our party: this country is one of the most unequal in Europe.

“We have more people sleeping badly than 10 years ago, we have more people living in severe poverty in this country.

“The idea that we go back to a sort of market-driven economy analysis in the Labor Party is not the way forward.

“The way forward is surely to recognize the need to rebalance the economy and our society”.
