Corbyn’s Victory Speech, as broadcast by the BBC

Mr Corbyn, who has been described by the media as a ‘veteran left-wing MP‘, has spent his entire career on the backbenches. Originally an outsider in the contest, Corbyn’s popularity came as a surprise to many as he beat frontbenchers Yvette Cooper, Liz Kendall and Andy Burnham to win.

In the vote, which was put to members of the Labour Party, Mr Corbyn received an overwhelming 59.5% of the first preference vote, with his nearest rival, Mr Burnham, receiving just  19%.

In his victory speech, Corbyn stated that he aimed to tackle the “gross levels of inequality in our society.
