A UK political party which appears to have a leader independent of the establishment

The Labour Party is the fastest growing political party in the United Kingdom with a membership exceeding 515,000 and a leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who appears to be more or less independent of the UK deep state.

2015 leadership election

Ed Miliband's resignation after the 2015 General Election defeat prompted Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper, Jeremy Corbyn and Liz Kendall to stand as candidates to succeed him as Labour party leader.[1] Jeremy Corbyn was elected Leader of the Labour Party in September 2015 with 59.5% of the vote.

2016 leadership election

Jeremy Corbyn was subject to significant opposition from the Parliamentary Labour Party (for example, Hilary Benn, his Shadow Foreign Secretary expressed no confidence in him, and over 20 members of the shadow cabinet resigned) which prompted a leadership challenge from Owen Smith.[2] However, Corbyn increased his margin of victory and was re-elected on 24 September 2016 with 61.8% of the vote.
