Early and personal life 
He currently lives in Finsbury Park and has three sons. Previously Corbyn lived in Lausanne Road in Harringay where he was active in securing the future of a small local park created from a World War II bomb site.
Political career 
He is considered one of the most left-wing of Labour Party MPs and is member of the Socialist Campaign Group. He has a weekly column in The Morning Star. A long-time supporter of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), he is one of its three Vice-Chairs. Before his election to Parliament, he was an elected councillor in the London Borough of Haringey (1974–83). He is on the London Regional Select Committee.
Stop the War 
He was fiercely opposed to the Iraq War and has spoken at many anti-war rallies in Britain and overseas. He is an elected member of the Stop the War Coalition steering committee. On 31 October 2006, Corbyn was one of 12 Labour MPs to back Plaid Cymru and the Scottish National Party's call for an inquiry into the war.
Jeremy Corbyn announced in December 2006 that he was considering running for the Labour party deputy leadership to provide an anti-war candidate, but in the event did not stand as it would be unlikely that the contentious politican would emerge victorious.
He is one of the signatories to Tony Banks' "Pigeon Bombs" Early Day Motion and Michael Meacher's Climate Change EDM, in stark opposition to his brother, weather forecaster Piers Corbyn's view on climate change.
According to a BBC article, Jeremy Corbyn along with John McDonnell have signed a petition Calling on UK to lift the ban on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam - which is registered as a terrorist group by the European Union.
In 2013 Jeremy attended a conference in London, organised by the Argentine Foreign Ministry, calling for dialogue between the UK and Argentine governments on the question of Falkland Island sovereignty.
Corbyn is an MP sponsored by the UNISON trade union, and is a committed anti-fascist having spoken at the Unite Against Fascism and Barking and Dagenham TUC anti British National Party rally in December 2001  and also speaking at the organisations annual conference in 2007 attacking the record of the media and calling for a No Platform of the BNP.
