From a child I grew up in poverty, I know what it feels like to go hungry, I know what it's like to be ridiculed for wearing hand me down school uniform.
My dad tried his hardest but the work wasn't there and he had to deal with constant stress every day.
As I grew older and left school I found work but it was always a low wage, I learnt a trade but no one wanted to pay much and this was before minimum wage so you just got paid as little as they could get away with.
Then I found myself homeless, through no fault of my own, I was working too and that made life very awkward but due to circumstances and quite a lot of money deducted from my wages it was impossible for me to get a place, no support was in place, no council homes available and I couldn't afford rent and council tax.
I was lucky enough to have friends that helped when they could but being a proud man I would some times rather rough it than ask for help.
The reason I am explaining this is because most of the circumstances I have found myself in could have been prevented by caring politicians, by people with power caring more about people, rather than how much money could be saved.
For over 40 years we have endured government after government that have put economics above the welfare of its vulnerable and poverty stricken citizens.
We have endured governments that have encouraged home ownership and not given a thought about social housing.
Many of our mentally ill are sleeping on the streets unmedicated and with out support.
These are my reasons for supporting Mr Corbyn, he shows compassion, he looks out for the ones that politics has neglected.
I don't want to see a single person go through the things I have had to endure, I want to see a caring and compassionate government that lifts children out of poverty and encourages education for all and not just for those who can afford it.
Corbyn is the only one offering truly compassionate politics and it's some thing this country desperately needs.
So let Khan back Smith, let the PLP have their tantrums, Corbyn represents the true values of a true Labour party, and we the people together and united will never surrender, we will have the most compassionate politician to ever walk this earth as our Prime Minister.
Many Thanks to Steve Harrison
