How did avowed socialist Jeremy Corbyn recently win election as Labour Leader in Britain, on an anti-war, pro-refugee platform?  Are there lessons from that election which might apply to the U.S., and to the presidential run of Bernie Sanders?  Are these rumblings of potentially more far-reaching political revolutions in the West?  This week on the Campbell Conversations host Grant Reeher explores those questions with Jon Trickett, the first Member of Parliament to nominate Corbyn for Leader, and now one of his closest advisors.
