Corbyn to say 'I love Britain' in riposte to critics

Leader of the opposition Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, listens to speeches on day two of the annual Labour conference, in Brighton, on September 28, 2015Britain’s new opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn will seek to quash criticism he is unpatriotic and promote unity in his party in his first speech to the Labour party’s annual conference on Tuesday. Corbyn has faced a wave of negative publicity since winning the Labour leadership, including for staying silent as others around him sang Britain’s national anthem “God Save the Queen” at a World War II memorial. Corbyn hails from the left-wing side of the Labour party and has faced dissent from lawmakers who are loyal to the party’s more centrist “New Labour” tradition of former prime minister Tony Blair.
