Jeremy Corbyn’s constituents give views on re-election campaign as independent

Jeremy Corbyn’s Islington North constituents have given their views on their MP after he announced he would stand as an independent candidate in the general election.

The former Labour leader was suspended by the party in 2020 after he refused to fully accept the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s findings that the party broke equality law when he was in charge.

Mr Corbyn has now been banished from the party after announcing he will stand as an independent.

Labour has selected Praful Nargund to stand against Mr Corbyn, who has held the seat for more than 40 years.
