Corbyn mania: UK Labour’s left turn (part 2)

After Syriza in Greece and Podemos in Spain, the year of the maverick continues in Britain with an old-school Socialist trouncing all comers to win the leadership of the centre-left Labour Party, with a platform that includes everything from renationalizing the railways to withdrawing from NATO. The ruling class predicts doom for a party they claim is out of touch. Is Labour now unelectable? Or, like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders in the US, is Jeremy Corbyn rewriting the playbook?

Produced by Charles Wente, Chris Davis and Emerald Maxwell
