Can you start off by explaining what role you’ve had in Corbyn’s campaign so far, both in winning the nomination and the campaign since? What do you hope to achieve with it? Is it part of a longer term strategy?

I’m a trade unionist active in Unite and I sit on the National Committee of Young Labour. My role has been confined to that of an unofficial agitator – specifically aimed at young people – for Corbyn’s candidacy and the policies and strategy he espouses. I hope we can build a large enough coalition of forces both inside and outside the Labour party, within the wider labour movement and beyond to catapult Corbyn to victory.
