A ‘legacy’ plan for Jeremy Corbyn’s final weeks and next steps has been leaked – and it could include a visit to Iraq.
The document handed to the Sunday Times reveals the outgoing Labour leader is planning to set up his own ‘For the Many Foundation’ when he steps down – a nod to his 2017 election slogan.
And before he does so, he will pave the way for cementing his shift of Labour to the left with visits to ‘red wall’ seats in the north and work to ‘inspire young people’.
It’s understood the For The Many Foundation is under serious discussion, while other ideas in the leaked document were proposed by staff and are not confirmed or solid plans.
They are said to include championing “solidarity struggles” and “stopping war”, with a possible visit to officials in Baghdad’s Green Zone.
Staff also mooted visits to Ghana and India, according to the document – which is titled Jeremy’s Forward Look Engagement Strategy.
“It’s the sort of thing we couldn’t do when Jeremy was future PM, but means so much to him personally,” a source told the newspaper.
Jeremy Corbyn was a vehement anti-war and anti-nuclear campaigner during his decades as a back bench MP.
The Islington North MP will turn 71 weeks after stepping down when a new leader takes office on April 4.
