Special Report: Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party's Radical Rise

SPECIAL REPORT: What difference does a Party make? This week on the "Laura Flanders Show" we talk about what's happening in the U.K., where one of the two main parties is picking up many of the radical demands coming out of movement groups seeking to transform the economy and society. In 2017, mainstream media predicted that the Labour Party would be crushed in the general election. Instead, it won its best result in 20 years, getting more than 40 percent of the vote under the leadership of life long socialist and anti-war campaigner Jeremy Corbyn.
