For those of us living with mental illness, stigma and prejudice can all too often permeate every part of our everyday lives. When Owen Smith labelled his Labour leadership rival a “lunatic” last night, he showed a complete disregard for some of society’s most vulnerable people.
Deputy Labour leader Tom Watson has argued today that young Labour members are being strong armed into supporting Jeremy Corbyn and his policies by older party members. As a young person who joined Labour to support left-wing policies, it's a patronising assessment that's far from correct.
During his trip to Brighton yesterday, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn ruled out working with other progressive parties to form an electoral alliance. Luke Cooper argues this is could be a fatal error on the part of the left-wing leader he supports.

Richard Seymour argues that this is a well planned coup, an attack on the progressive politics Corbyn and his supporters stand for, and must be resisted at all costs.
