Here we will be looking at whether or not Jeremy Corbyn really plans to change the Labour Party into a left wing political party with socialist principles or whether it has just been a stunt to gain the left wing support he needed to retain the leadership.
The first clue is to have a look at who has been selected to his shadow cabinet and who has been chosen for the front bench. We need to look at these candidates in detail and see on what basis they were selected and whether or not they are committed to socialist left wing or whether they are moderates loyal to the principles of Tony Blair. A good leader will surround himself with people he can trust to be loyal to his cause. Change can only result from commitment and hard work from people who are loyal to the cause and who actually believe that the cause is worthwhile. Mr Corbyn has suggested that he wants the Labour Party to return to it’s traditional values and socialist principles. The only way to achieve this is by electing the right people available to do the job and surrounding himself with the right team. So has Mr Corbyn selected wisely?
