The candidate : Jeremy Corbyn's improbable path to power by Alex Nunns( )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September of 2015 an earthquake shook the foundations of British politics. Jeremy Corbyn, a lifelong and uncompromising socialist, was elected to head the Labour Party. Corbyn didn't just win the leadership contest, he trounced his opponents. The establishment was aghast. The official opposition now had as its leader a man with a plan, according to the conservative Daily Telegraph, "to turn Britain into Zimbabwe." Drawing on first-hand interviews with those involved in the campaign, including its most senior figures, Nunns traces the origins of Corbyn's victory in the dissatisfactions with Blairism stirred by the Iraq War and the 2008 financial crash, the move to the left of the trades unions, and changes in the electoral rules of the Labour Party that turned out to be surreally at odds with the intentions of those who introduced them. The system of one-member-one-vote, which delivered Corbyn's success, was opposed by those on the left and was heralded by Tony Blair who described it as "a long overdue reform that... I should have done myself."
