James O'Brien Nails The Point Jeremy Corbyn Needs To Get Across
Labour are trailing in the polls, but James says if Corbyn can change people's minds about the root of their problems, he can challenge Theresa May.
Jeremy Corbyn made his first speech of his election campaign this morning.
He touched on many of the topics James O’Brien regularly highlights on his show around wealth and people being told who to blame for their problems.
Corbyn said he was wanted to “overturn the rigged systems” and that Labour would not “play by the rules” of the establishment.
In response to the Labour leader’s speech, James explained the one crucial idea he needs to convince people of if he’s going to challenge Theresa May.
“That's the challenge Jeremy Corbyn has set himself:
“Do you believe he can succeed regardless of his personal attributes in the challenge to persuade the British public that if they're unhappy with their lot, if they're unhappy with their cards, if they're unhappy with their life, it's probably the fault of the people running the shop rather than the customers behind them in the queue with a little bit less money and different coloured skin?”
