He was called the odd man out when he became the candidate for the Labour leadership in the UK. And when he won the position, his economic policies were criticized. Yet he has rolled back some of the unpopular policies of the Conservative government, like the unpopular austerity cuts.

Straight talking, honest politics. That’s the slogan of the Labour Party. Jeremy Corbyn has presented The Economy 2020 manifesto with a series of programs that would lead the UK out of the economic stagnation that it is experiencing.

One of his programs is the housing construction plan. Labour is actually considering the biggest social house building drive since the 70s. Shadow housing minister John Healey announced that the government could build 100,000 council houses and housing association homes a year, an area in which the Tories have failed miserably since there is a large housing crisis.

Corbyn has also been slammed for his version of the QE (Quantitative Easing) for the people. Instead of the money going into some fund, it would be directly pumped into the economy, like in infrastructure.
