Dear Jeremy,

You were right about everything.

You were right about the plans by Tories to destroy the NHS, using austerity by way of underinvestment and by privatizing vast swathes of the frontline services.

You understood the need to put the most vulnerable at the heart of your government’s policies, because you believed in a fairer world; a world which works for the many and not for the few.

You spoke about getting the wealthiest corporations to pay their fair share of taxes and ending the practice of repatriation of wealth to tax havens in the West Indies.

You had grand plans to nationalize the rail systems which has been run to the ground by private companies. You saw that they had taken out billions of pounds in profit but put so little back in to improve the trains.

You recognized the suffering of the people of Palestine and had shown great solidarity with those who had been displaced in Gaza since Benjamin Netanyahu got into power.

But powerful players in the Labour Party, Conservative Party and not to mention their friends in the BBC, the Guardian and the right wing press began to choke on their warm proseccos, worrying that their way of life would come to an end.

As such, they invented stories about your ill health.

They said that you were an anti-semite and had done nothing to tackle the scourge of anti-semitism in the Labour Party.

The vested interests in the right wing media said nothing about Boris Johnson’s history regarding anti-semitism, Islamophobia, sexism, anti-Black racism and the number of children fathered outside of wedlock.

And the right of the Labour party in Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson and Chuka Umunna, happily colluded with the all powerful media to undermine your leadership at every turn.

They said that you were Russia’s lackey, conveniently forgetting that the sitting Prime Minister went to the birthday party of an FSB agent, without his security detail and put the son of a former Russian spy in the house of lords — Britain’s upper house.
