UK: Corbyn amplifies public concerns of tory policy on housing and benefits at PMQs

The new Labour Leader and Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn asked UK Prime Minister David Cameron a series of questions emailed in to him by members of the public during his debut Prime Minister's Questions in Parliament in London, Wednesday. The questions, chosen from around 40,000 submitted to the Leader of the Opposition, included queries on the subject of welfare, housing, and mental health services. Corbyn was elected as leader of the Labour Party last week in a landslide result, with the veteran left-winger's anti-austerity message gathering widespread support from party members and young activists disillusioned with the political mainstream.
