    I changed the headline from “Labour says…” to “Jeremy Corbyn says” – at WikiTribune we must strive for extreme precision. Say exactly who said something, as opposed to dealing in abstractions.

    If this was a manifesto pledge voted upon by the appropriate bodies to make it official Labour policy, then it could be appropriate to say “Labour says…” But this is a set of proposals by Corbyn which may or may not become official policy of the Labour party.

      Thank you for changing the headline Jimmy. As for the summary of the whole speech, I can add to your other article.

        Sweet. I think both are valid, obviously. A quick news piece but then also a more in-depth summary/explainer!

    Is it possible to find a transcript of his speech and link it here? And we could do a quick point-by-point summary of it in a very neutral way. I’m sure there will be plenty of spin in tomorrow’s papers about this, right and left, and it would be good to prominently link the source.

      Actually I saw that the full text was linked – I made it more prominent. Given that WikiTribune wants to be the best in the world at transparency and factual reporting, we should make our sourcing extremely clear in all cases!

      I know this isn’t normal journalistic style – and that’s a good thing, as normal journalistic style is what we want to change – it’s a revolution.
