From The Socialist newspaper, 16 September 2015

Thoughts from the web

Congratulations to @Corbyn4Leader 60% of 1st preference votes, new leader of the Labour Party! Build a working class Labour out of New Labour

Dave Nellist, Trade Unionist & Socialist Coalition Chair

Congratulations @jeremycorbyn - victory for socialist ideas and principled politics. Good luck in struggle to make Labour a left party again.

Paul Murphy, Irish Socialist Party TD (MP)

If @stellacreasy can be a member of The Cooperative Party and #LabourParty, hmm, wonder if I can be a member of Socialist Party & Labour??

Nancy Taaffe

Women in high places and gender equality are two very different things #justsayin #corbyncabinet

Jacqui Berry

#Corbyn victory! Now he needs to mobilise mass movement kill off new labour for good

Paul Callanan

Corbyn will be Rapunzel - at the top of the tower but a prisoner nevertheless - unless he acts decisively against the right wing and democratises the party.

Ross Saunders

JC romps home convincingly! This a great victory for the anti-austerity movement and should give confidence to us all in the trade unions and on the left. Questions that had been confined to the margins such as what type of change do we need and how do we get it as well as socialism are now surely back on the agenda, and I'm convinced Marxist ideas will also become more popular!

PD Hunt

Ramsey MacDonald, Denis Healey, Roy Hattersley, Neil Kinnock, Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, Alistair Campbell. Liz Kendall, your boys took one hell of a beating!

Nick Parker

Not everybody was pleased. The editorial in City AM, a city freeby with a daily diary page called The Capitalist, talks of Corbyn putting "Labour's moral authority at risk". The paper's headline was "Labour's lost it."

It rails against John McDonnell's plans for tackling the 'casino economy' including increasing taxation on people earning over 100,000 a year. They are worried about the bank accounts of the rich 'losing it'. But their class has for decades had three major political parties backing it and they are weeping, and trying to organise against, the prospect of Labour leaving that fold.
