“What Alex Nunns has achieved with ‘The Candidate’ is remarkable. It’s the real, inside story of the campaign to elect Jeremy Corbyn, from the ground up. It’s as if someone has followed the participants with a video camera throughout, carefully detailing the important moments. But it’s more than that: it bears all the hallmarks of someone who genuinely understands the decisive forces that made up the Corbyn moment. And Nunns communicates all this expertly. The book reads like a political thriller, and even though we all know the ending, it’s nevertheless an enormously exciting read. As the book gives Red Labour it’s rightful place in this bit of history, we’re also delighted to recommend it to the Red Labourite family. What’s not to like?”
