Corbyn Iraq apology ‘can begin cleaning bloody stain’

Responding to Jeremy Corbyn’s pledge to apologise for the Iraq war, Left Unity’s Salman Shaheen said:

“This shows that Jeremy Corbyn’s victory will finally turn the page on the warmongering record of New Labour.

“I have never been able to vote Labour since the Iraq war.

“Corbyn can’t bring back the dead, but if he does this he will at least be able to begin cleaning a bloody stain left on the party by Tony Blair, and allow many like me to vote Labour without having to hold their nose for the stench of corpses.”
