To win power to rebuild and transform Britain, Labour will go further to reconnect with voters, and break with the failed political consensus – Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party,
commenting on the Stoke-on-Trent Central and Copeland by-elections, said:

“Labour’s victory in Stoke is a decisive rejection of UKIP’s
politics of division and dishonesty. But our message was not enough to win
through in Copeland. 

"In both campaigns, Labour listened to thousands of
voters on the doorstep. Both constituencies, like so many in Britain, have been
let down by the political establishment.

“To win power to rebuild and transform Britain, Labour will go
further to reconnect with voters, and break with the failed political
consensus.”
