The latest TV broadcast message from the leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, has just been made available on-line.
Jeremy speaks, as always, with conviction, calmness and certitude. In the short film below he highlights both recent victories for communities and individuals, but goes on to present a clear position on community support, education, health and social care.
It is this calm clarity, we would argue, that as leader of the Party, is one of the most important characteristics that Jeremy brings to the policy development debate.
It is not the clamour of ideological disruption, but a process of consultative, active listening.
