"The Palestinian people have an inalienable right to self-determination which must be realised in practice, including their right to an independent state of Palestine." - Jeremy Corbyn.
"Climate breakdown will increasingly define our politics as impacts like wildfires, hurricanes and drought grow worse at home and abroad. Rebecca Long-Bailey is best placed to translate Labour’s proposition of a Green New Deal into the election winning common sense solution to these climate impacts. That’s why she’s the person to lead Labour into the 2020s. "
"Removing what she perfectly describes as the 'gentleman’s club of politics' will just be the first step in handing back power from the interests of billionaires to the working people of Britain."

"Many imagine a politician as being completely removed from popular culture, self-interested and contemptuous of the electorate, Long-Bailey however comes across as a normal person who is fighting for her class rather than as member of the privileged elite who is out to protect their own interests. "
"Never give up that hope, that belief that life can & should get better with every passing generation." - Rebecca Long Bailey MP.
"We can’t wait five years for a chance to transform people’s lives. We must begin organising in our communities now." - Rebecca Long Bailey,
"We must defend the radicalism in Labour’s policies which have developed in recent years. Newham’s community wealthy building shows how Labour in local government can play its part in defending the policy agenda Labour needs to maintain, to resisting the new Tory majority in Westminster from the front line." - Daniel Blaney
"We must not fail those children waiting in Calais and the Greek Islands in the hope that they will be able to reach their families legally and safely." - Diane Abbott MP.
