Jeremy Corbyn has backed calls from within the Labour Party for a substantive change to the electoral ballot system.

In an interview with Rubik’s Cube Quarterly, the Labour Leader argued that changes in the political landscape should be accounted for in the way that votes are cast.

“Labour stands for equality and we simply aren’t seeing that equality in the polls,” argued Corbyn.

“That’s why we feel that hard-working parties who are just about managing, such as us, would benefit from the safety net of the sympathy vote option on the ballot paper.”
