Labour Party's new leader: Jeremy Corbyn

"The Labour Party is now a threat to our national security, our economic security and your family's security," says Prime Minister David Cameron, speaking about the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour's new leader.
BBC Breakfast also hosted a debate about whether Corbyn's casual clothes constitute a threat to our nation's fashion industry.
Yet, as the photo shows, Corbyn can cut a dash in a dark suit (centre).

Corbyn was photographed outside St Margaret's Church in Parliament Square on 27 March, 2014, attending the funeral of veteran Labour politician Tony Benn.
(Benn passed away on 14 March 2014).
At that time, the idea that Corbyn would be elected as Labour's new leader would probably have seemed far-fetched.
