Letter to Jeremy Corbyn from Ken Loach, Brian Eno & others

To Jeremy Corbyn MP – leader of the Labour Party

As artists and writers, we would like to thank you for raising political awareness in our country to a level not seen since the end of World War II. Your humanity, courage and insight have mobilised a new generation of socialist activists.

Much of our work reflects the world we live in and, as leader of the Labour Party, you have inspired and energised us for the future.

The media has been atrocious in the recent election and, in the face of provocation, we congratulate you for keeping your dignity and clarity.

You will never be forgotten.

Sincerely

    1. Dear Jeremy, you and your friend John McDonnell will go down in History as the heroic Champions of the People you served with integrity that this cruel world is earnestly seeking.

    2. I supported J Corbyn as soon as I heard him speak in the leadership debates. An inspiring, caring man with huge knowledge of social issues and foreign injustices. The media destroyed intelligent debate. We will fight on.

    3. Thank you Mr Corbyn. I hope this list of great people is a small indication of the admiration and appreciation we all feel for your dedication to truth and justicefor all. We honour you.

    4. I was lifted to heights I didn't think possible by your vision and leadership only to have my dreams dashed. There is a brighter future for us if we embrace the beautiful manifesto your team has bestowed. I will be listening for your advice on the way forward. As Tony Benn said the campaign for socialism is never ending so whilst we are smarting from a defeat we must bounce back and win the next one. Onwards and upwards.

    5. Thank you Mr Corbyn, I cannot conjure up wonderful words like poets, buy I can say THANK YOU to yourself and Mr Mc Donald for making the Labour Party a good, honest, viable party. I wonder how many of those people who were cheering at one of your rallies have stabbed you and the party in the back. Shame on them.

    6. Had lost nearly all hope and trust in politicians until you came along Jeremy and my hope was revived. I joined the Labour Party, and had never joined a political party before. You have succeeded in changing my world view that it is possible to have politicians of integrity who do really care about people and the environment. There are millions like me. Now that is success!

    7. Amazing, so a FEW champagne socialists sign a letter to Corbyn saying what a great job he has done. Also, the FEW hard left that demonstrate in London. While MANY of the real working folk of this country signed on their ballot paper that they do not want Corbyns’ Labour. Is it not ironic that the Labour slogan is “for the many not for the few”?

      Delete
    8. I never voted in my life until I heard about Jeremy Corbyn. A friend told me, vote for Jeremy Corbyn to be leader of the Labour Party because he's a really good man. I did vote and then we had to vote again and pay £25 to do so, the other members of the Labour Party didn't want Jeremy Corbyn to be their leader. I was so happy when he got in again as leader. The British people must be totally mad to have voted for the Tories after 10 years of austerity. As Noam Chomsky said the power of the press can make you believe that someone who has worked for peoples rights and against racism and antisemitism for 40 years, is anti-Semitic! It's such nonsense and the system is totally wrong. We need proportional representation too. I want Jeremy Corbyn to remain leader of the Labour party but that's not going to happen, so I doubt if I will vote again. The system does not work. Thank you Jeremy Corbyn for bringing us hope for a while.

    9. Jeremy, These are dangerous times that require a different approach from party leaders such as yourself. Resignation is not one of them, the struggle between the people and wealth is too acute. You have won more than lost while Bojo has lost more that he has won and he did not resign. You increased the vote in 2017 and T May stayed on . You can do the same. do not let the establishment get away with pushing you out. The truth is on your side, we the people elected you as leader. We the people voted in the millions for you to stay. We need to let the country know that we have your back. If necessary we need a petition supporting a reversal of your resignation.

      Delete
    10. Jeremy you directly inspired me to rejoin labour after leaving due to Kinnocks witch hunt of the left, I left because of the lack of free speech not because I was forced or coerced at all, like many others at the time and for several years afterward. You should have allowed the local parties to de-select virulent MP's much earlier and more effectively, and should have stood up to the anti-semitism smears too. Otherwise I still remain inspired. Good luck in the future much love and respect.

    11. You tried your hardest but against the MSM onslaught, the BBC bias and maybe pure ignorance, you fought a losing battle. I still believe you will be shown to have been on the right side of history. Thank you.

  12. with present legislation the media jumped into the gutter - and stayed there. I have not succumbed to their plea for subscribers and I never will. There was a pretty obvious conspiracy which demonised Corbyn and the labour party. Ex members also did a lot of damage - they made it work better that the Tories could ever expected. I congratulate Mr Corbyn, is Ms Sturgeon aware that Mr Corbyn voted for greater autonomy for Scotland.

  13. As a minor artist and a less human, I agree wholeheartedly with this. Weaker people would have crumbled under the onslaught you are still having to endure on our behalf.

You may not have won the election but you will always be a winner to me and my family. A decent and humble man who was brave enough to fight for the most vulnerable in our society. May the Sun always shine for you. Fran Wilby (wife, Mother and Socialist!).

  24. Huge debt of respect owed to JC for his display of integrity in the face of constant vilification. I can't imagine any of his detractors would have survived the lies and smears for one day, let alone the last three years. So many journalists and members of the PLP have disgraced themselves with their behaviour, shame on you all.

  28. Not sure if you have to be a big name to make this list, but if not, please put forward my name (Ben...Artist, musician and secondary school, cover supervisor) and add that Jeremy Corbyn was supported by me. I voted for him. I believed in him. I did not believe the smears. He has earned a rest from the hateful world out there. I only hope he has inspired enough interest in politics to encourage a new generation of young politicians to hold corrupt power to account. Thank you Jeremy Corbyn for all that you did and all you represented as the Labour leader. You’ll not be forgotten, nor scapegoated by me. Ben

  30. After a dark few days following the election result it has made me so happy to see the comments on here and know that others feel the same way I do. Last week's result means we have to fight harder fo those who can't fight for themselves. It means we have to speak louder for those who don't have a voice and it means we have to care for those who will be neglected. We have to keep hoping that one day the electorate will wake up to what they have done and act to put it right.

  37. At 13 Harold Wilson inspired me to join the Labour Party. In 1997 Blair and the continued destruction of Council housing, the privatisation of the NHS and the Iraq war caused me to drop out of active involvement to the point that I was considering leaving the Party. Then another inspiring socialist, a man of principle inspired me again to become actively involved again! Jeremy’s leadership has has empowered the membership to take back the Party from the corruption of the neoliberal elitists. We will not let the party slip back! Jeremy’s legacy will be the restoration of a truly democratic socialist Labour Party!

    Woe betide a central right-wing party leader now: we will leave in droves if a Blairite is elected! So, although the Moggs, Mays and Johnsons thwarted our hopes of a socialist government, we know that this movement will continue and gather Momentum.
    We look forward to your next chapter when you will undoubtably fight further injustice.
    You are an outstanding human being.

  44. Jeremy is an inspiration to everyone. I joined the Labour party solely to vote for him as leader, I'm 72. He has been treated abysmally by the media, the so called government and even by some Labour supporters. In a my years, I have never Serena politician treated this way and this to an honourable, caring, wonderful man who's only fault was he cared! I have the absolute and utmost respect for him and always will have!

  49. Jeremy, I met you briefly when I was standing for Cambridgeshire county council. Thanks for all that you have done. The drive to the centre by your predecessors has been nothing but a disaster. I was teaching during the Thatcher and Blair years and both of them ignored the arts. I believe the arts are fundamental to creating a civilised society. The economic model is clearly broken and doesn’t encourage the talents of our people, especially those who are poor. You have done a great service by setting the party in the right direction. Your contribution has been immense. Thank you so much, Adam

  56. At some point in the distant future, i believe everything you have fought for will become the norm. England just wasnt ready for you because they still read nothing but right wing media. You would have been the best British Prime Minister in my life, longer in fact, much longer. But the whole system is rigged. You did however inspire at least 3 generations of activists and politically engaged more people than i'd have given England credit for. You did for England since 2015 what Alec Salmond did for Scotland from 2011. Hopefully your people will catch up with mine when the Tories fuck everything up entirely.

  61. I don't how long humans have, but to dismiss the main plank of the Labour Manifesto, The Climate Emergency, the UK public will shed bitter tears & real fear in years to come. The chance, at such a pivotal moment to surge ahead with massive, indeed industrial infrastructure and education is now lost. The FFF and XRebellion will go on but UK will not be a spearhead to drive EU and then US followed by China etc... We are now lost, but thank you for trying.

  67. Jeremy you and your team, if gotten in power, would have redressed the balance of all the harm that has been inflicted on the this country since Maggie Thatcher with her weapon (the handbag), including to a slightly lesser extent the Blairites. "For the many, not the few". The slanders and smears have been utterly vile! (am a Dutch national having lived in this country for over 27 years). The xenophobia and regressive policies by the present government and and their far-right facilitators is deeply disturbing, akin to rise of Nazism in Germany in 1993.Am a supporter of the principles that the EEG (EU) is built on. Reform is needed though in the EU, a more social Europe, for the many and not the few!

  68. I have been inspired by your leadership and you have awakened in me a passion for your kind and caring politics. I have never belonged to a political party before but have joined the Labour Party because of you. I am devastated and angry at the treatment you have received.

  69. Thank you Jeremy for your honesty, courage, integrity and sheer determination in your fight to make this country fair. Unfortunately integrity is lacking in today’s politics, and this became your ‘downfall’. Despite the election result, I believe you have been inspirational in shaking up the ‘norm’ and waking millions up to the important issues of social justice. Your legacy will live on - people will remember you as the Best Prime Minister we could have, and should have had. As a Labour Member, I will continue to use my voice to ensure that Labour remains the Party of the Many, not the Few.

I know that if the Labour Party had won the election, you would have been a great Prime Minister and, instead of an austerity agenda, yours would have been one that would have sought to decrease poverty and homelessness and to look after the vulnerable people in our society.

  77. Dear Jeremy, I never knew it was even possible to admire a politician so much as I do you. Your passion, strength and integrity is inspiring to us all, I joined the Labour Party as soon as I heard you at first leaders selection, I and my family took immediate notice - a politician speaking to us and for us. I can’t tell you how excited and relieved we were. It has been an honour to follow you through thick and thin. We believe you and in you and still do. I know you probably wouldn’t wish such a thing but you are a hero in our house - I know of no other person who had devoted their lives to others, to the injustice here and around the world. You have been honest, principled and consistent throughout. It has genuinely upset me over the last 4 years to see the vile media smears against you and when you said ‘when they go low we go high’ you certainly did, I know one day the truth will come out and until then , thank you for giving millions of us a voice, thank you for your compassion, thank you for being Jeremy Corbyn.

  85. Your belief in a true socialist society had the money men and their lackeys worrying long into the night but it also inspired a hope in a lot of people that a just society is a worthy goal and worth fighting for.May the road rise to meet you and may the sun be always on your back and best wishes for your future wherever it may lead.You were our man in a million ,thankyou Mr Corbyn.

  86. I can't echo your calm and dignity in the the face of the constant and outrageous bile by the billionaire press and other media. I want to see what happens now we have a PM with only a passing connection with truth and detail and who has carried out a right wing coup aided by the media. I think before long many who voted for Johnson will come to regret their decision especially when confronted by what you and Labour offered. It won't be just the social revolution you offered but the green revolution. I don't believe Johnson has the slightest interest in tackling the climate crisis either at home or worldwide. We have missed a chance for social justice and a green revolution and that is downright dangerous. You will be remembered for offering a different, safer and more just world. Thank you for trying.

  87. When my siblings and I were very young, our mum used to take us all on her campaign trail around the neighbourhood, campaigning for the Labour party. She was a staunch Labour supporter up and to Mr John Smith. After his death she became very disillusioned about the Party's direction (obviously remained faithful). But I know she would have been very proud of the party since you took on the leadership. You represented everything she wished for; protecting and fighting the PEOPLES AND ANIMALS corner; for all those in need without a selfish bone in your body. Politically speaking, I became very cynical about all politicians, and for that matter Union Leaders, Individual union leaders that became all too powerful and self promoting with large financial rewards for themselves! Every speech left hollow sounds. Then I witnessed what my mother wanted and fought for all her life; A Man that genuinely cared about people,the defenceless throughout the world. The huge injustices committed against UK citizens, the austerity, the sick,starving children, immigration rights,the list goes on.. And that man is you Jeremy Corbyn. You would have been way up there in my Mothers approval and restored her faith in the values she wished for all throughout the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for erasing the cynicism within me to the point I feel we are not alone. when challenging the wrongs in this world and finding the cure for the contemptible disease that strips our community core values.

  89. To qoute Jerry McQuire, "we live in a cynical world". I'm as cynical as the next man, but I recognise honesty for what it is when I see it. That's what I see in you. Along with honesty I see honour and decency with a burning desire against injustice. Mr Corbyn, you have inspired and guided me to be a better person, I cannot pay you a greater tribute than that. Thank you.

  99. I would like to thank you Mr Corbyn for all you have done in the name of humanity. I feel that the media coverage of your valiant attempts to create a fairer society was driven by a dark and dangerous force. I can only begin to imagine how you are feeling right now and I applaud your strength and dignity throughout. I believe Ghandi once said "When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it always" Take a well earned rest now and come back renewed to continue to help those in need in our world.

  107. Dear Jeremy, Thank you! History will show how Britain wasted the opportunity of having a decent, honest and principled Prime Minister to lead the country out of this economic and political quagmire. It’s a great shame and stain on the nation. I have always admired you and your integrity, from your ever contestant fight against inequality and peace-seeking talks with various groups, to your fight against apartheid in South Africa and more recently, your almost unilateral stance against the U.K.invasion in Iraq. It is sickening to witness the ruthless MSM barons take national bullying to new heights in their campaign to demonise you. I understand and support your desire for a new kind of consensus and visionary politics. You and John McDonnell are amazing! But the people of Britain have revealed themselves and it is not a pretty sight. Sadly they will come to regret not having you lead the way to a better Britain. Thank you for trying. In solidarity, Elaine Mullings ����

    You have behaved with dignity towards the horrendous, utterly self-centred/serving press; their constant abuse and twisting of facts must have made you livid (It made me livid, when you're powerless to do anything about it, but you know it's untrue, unjust -sometimes opposite to the truth! :( )

    Enjoy your wife, cat & all your family & friends this Christmas, and I will see you again somewhere I expect!

I am proud to have voted for you and supported you in every way possible. You have made a mark which will be remembered for generations. It is still a crusade for the many not the few and it will continue as such until we win. You have my utmost respect and I hope you keep going in Parliament, it's a marathon not a sprint and the future is ours.

  121. Dear Jeremy, I've always voted Labour but I didn't join the Party until there was the possibility of voting you in as Leader. My Mum (now 89) had left the Labour Party over Tony Blair's Iraq disaster but rejoined, along with me, as it seemed at last Labour would be able to return to its Socialist roots. What you achieved has been monumental - against all the odds, you and other Labour MPs have shifted the 'Overton Window' to the Left. You've shone a much needed light on the poor and disempowered, and made the nation think - even if only a little - about what kind of world we wish to live in. I have found the media and Tory vilification of you shameful and disgusting, and despite all the smears and lies I thank you for staying honourable throughout. You so clearly believe in what you say, and have absolute clarity of vision, unlike your opponents. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you very much for all you have done, and know that you are much appreciated. All the best, Elaine (and Janet)

  125. As a mother, Artist and fellow human, I would like to thank Jeremy for all as stated above. You inspired me to believe in politics and the possibility of real change. I was appalled by the Media coverage, disinformation and bias reporting. I Joined the labour party because I believed in you and feel sad that you were treated so badly. We shall carry on your cause. We won't give up. We will carry on because it is the right thing to do. You have been an inspiration to so many and have engaged a whole generation of young people in politics. You had them all running scared because they know you would have never have been their puppet. Thank you for supporting and wanting to change the fortunes of many vulnerable people in our society. I fear there will be many more! Thank you for your dignity, remaining true and honest and thank you for your life long commitment to peace, fairness and equality.

  126. Whatever you think of Jeremy, and most people are positive, if he had been elected Prime Minister of a Labour majority government, we may have had Dianne Abbot as Home Secretary, which would have been the biggest calamity ever. Law, common sense and justice would have been consigned to the dustbin, alongside personal integrity, and mathematic capability.

    Why he aligned himself to such a loser is beyond belief.

    Thank Goodness that Jeremy lost.

  127. British voters do not deserve to have someone like Jeremy Corbyn as their Prime Minister. They do not need a person with honesty, integrity and compassion to lead them. No, they would much prefer an arsehole or a sociopath to lead them to the future. Good luck to them.

An incoruptable force for the good of all, not just lining his pockets for the favor of the few. Sir, I take my hat off to you and really wish that you didn't have to stand down.

  131. OOO Jeremy Corbyn, more than 20 years ago I was homeless in London. It was a very very cold winter. I use to fill my days by everyday going to a different charity to ask them to help me. They were all absolutely useless with the exception of a homeless charity in Pratt Street Camden, who used to give us food and allow us to wash ourselves and our clothes. Somebody there told me about this MP in Islington that really cared about the homeless. I went to see you and told you my story. That was on a Friday about 11 am. By 5 that evening I had a home in Islington. Thank you for saving my life.

  142. Dear Jeremy,

    Your world view of compassion for all humanity is sadly not understood by people who are easily & willingly fooled by the age-old trick of populism, seemingly favouring some members (their own) of the human race over others. Hence, they spit bile and vitriol at you, who are one of those rare people who would show compassion to those who hate (even hurt) you. One day (it comes to us all), they will wish for someone like you to show them the humanity they eschew for others. Please remember you are loved & honoured by so many who share your values as you have been a man of principles, kindness, humility & dignity in the face of vile abuse. I only joined the Labour Party because of you - I fear you have big shoes to fill as you have been incorruptible (and hence vilified by the establishment). I don't know if anyone else can be as strong. May you have peace, happiness & love forever more. Thank you xxx

That the truth was not fully revealed to the general electorate is wholly due to the political control of the mass media and the bias they exercise in their own interests and loyalty to greed & avarice. I do not want you to resign from the leadership, far from it, I'd like you to stay and complete the job. But only if you can. Thanks.

In the face of constant discouraging smear attempts you stood your ground and never stooped to the level of back biting and bickering. For what it's worth, empathy towards displaced Palestinians does not, of course, constitute as antisemitism. I met you in Bristol in a cafe and you held my baby boy! It was great to meet you. Thanks for being strong and dignified in the face of adversity, Mr Corbyn. Inspirational.

  153. Jeremy, I met you at the Brighton Hustings in 2015. I was a new member of the party having previously voted for leader as a union member. I went with an open mind and with no clue of who I would vote for. You impressed me with everything you said and I knew that day you were the best man for the job. My husband has been a "floating voter" for most of his life, but once you were leader, he listened to you in interviews and Commons QT etc, and decided you were the most honest politician he'd come across and is now firmly in our camp. Thank you for bringing traditional Labour values back. My late father was a refugee from the Nazis and a committed Labour supporter and trade unionist. He'd have backed you all the way too. Thank you.

The majority of influential employees in the institutions, which the media is built on support and promote hatred. Neo-Liberalism itself can only exist with the influence of hatred, for the economic abuse of a fellow human cannot be executed through love. Unfortunately this is a reflection of the British and other societies, which are yet to evolve through the power of love.

  161. Dear Jeremy. Please reconsider your resignation. Do you realise you lost the election because in an act of desperation & fear the media, Tories & establishment mobilised a last ditch campaign against you & rigged the election count to obstruct your path to power?

    You won the debate on behalf of the 99%, on behalf of our embattled NHS & public services, the homeless, working poor & vulnerable. You saw off 2 Tory PMs, had Mrs May on the ropes throughout her tenure & derailed her Brexit agenda completely. Same with Boris, you had him on the ropes, procrastinating, bumbling, lying & staggering around like a headless chicken.

    Come back & finish this fight with us. The rigged election result says absolutely nothing about you, but everything about the people who would rather see injustice, oppression & hate reign, see millions starved & driven to ruin than allow a man like you; a man of prescience; compassion, integrity & conscience, representing the 99% in power.

    Only you can fix this Jeremy.You've earned your place, don't let them push you out after 4 years of the grassroots movement & you standing up to the barrage of smears, lies & hate from socialism's enemies.

    I remain inspired, you inspired me like no other politician that we can have that better world but we can't have it without brave politicians like you leading the way & standing with us. Do it for you; for the membership; for your children, our children, future generations, the planet Throw out convention & stand up again, to hell with what they say, what can they say that we haven't already heard, don't believe the hype or the rigged election Jeremy, the people are awake & stand with you. Millions of lives & the planet are at stake if you don't fight back now.

  164. I am in tears to see so many people thanking Jeremy Corbyn. He was my beacon of hope. My dream that people come first. Not money. We are all in this together. My new dream is he will carry on fighting for us. I will stand by him.

  165. Before Jeremy Corbyn I had never before been inspired to join a political party or to closely follow party politics. Like many others I joined the Labour party because of him and to vote for him to lead the Labour party. I have remained a member ever since.
    He is not on the far left, he wants to see a just and fair society. The media have a lot to answer for.
    With so many people inspired and particularly younger people, I feel hopeful that the wonderful manifesto will come to fruition.

    1. I never voted before Jeremy Corbyn was an option. Now I won't vote again until he is re-instated.

  166. Win or loose you are so great none else will ever get anywhere near you in terms of love , affection and admiration from so many millions we won’t be able to quantify. You will be dwelling in the hearts of people both young and old for generations to come as a national hero . Nobody can take your place in the forceable future. Long live Jeremy Corbyn.
