With Jeremy Corbyn’s convincing re-election as Labour leader, friends and foes alike have called for the party to unite. In a competent and well-delivered speech to the Labour Party conference, Corbyn made clear that the unity he wants is one based around his own socialist vision for the party and the country rather than compromises with internal opponents. He extolled his refreshed mandate, praised the influx of new members and lauded those back-bench Labour MPs who stepped in to take on vacated front-bench roles after the mass resignation in June, describing them as “our future.” It earned him one of the loudest cheers of the afternoon and a standing ovation from some but not all in the audience. The wounds of the summer have not yet healed.
