Whilst Theresa May was left stuttering and spluttering over the mess she is making of our standing within the international community with her alleged brexit victory last week, Jeremy Corbyn was giving an impassioned and statesman like speech in Geneva.
You can be forgiven for not knowing that Jeremy was there to receive the international Seán MacBride Peace Prize, as it has largely been ignored by British Media. However, Swiss newspaper, Le Temps, covered the article and you can read about it HERE. He was awarded by the International Peace Bureau for
his sustained and powerful political work for disarmament and peace. As an active member, vice-chair and now vice-president of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in the UK he has for many years worked to further the political message of nuclear disarmament. As the past chair of the Stop the War Campaign in the UK he has worked for peace and alternatives to war. He has ceaselessly stood by the principles, which he has held for so long, to ensure true security and well-being for all – for his constituents, for the citizens of the UK and for the people of the world.
