Dugdale Welcomes Corbyn's Election

Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale's welcoming Jeremy Corbyn's election as Ed Miliband's successor.

''Today shows politics has changed. People are calling for radical change and straight talk. Jeremy's election shows that the party has listened to that call, and I look forward to working with him and meeting him to discuss his priorities later today.

''I have already said that I want people to take another look at the Labour Party. I want to say that again today. I hope that those who were lost to us in the past will start to listen again as both Jeremy and I put forward radical policies that we hope will win back support for Labour.

''We've now got the chance for a fresh start and new leadership in both Scotland and across the UK. I've said I want my leadership to be about shaking up the establishment in Scotland, and Jeremy wants to do the same across the UK. What people want is real change – not just in their politics, but in their lives. Today offers the chance for that change.''
