Jeremy Corbyn a big hit with Glastonbury crowd

Share

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn used his spot on the Glastonbury festival's main Pyramid Stage to hit out at "elites" that doubted his party's election campaign, and reminded supporters of their power to affect change in the UK.

Of course, not everyone in the crowd who stood listening to Corbyn is going to be far left, and indeed if the crowd was to be questioned there would be many different political views.

Organiser Michael Eavis, who invited Mr Corbyn to take to the Pyramid Stage, said: "At last we have a leader to put in place all the issues we've been campaigning for for 40 years".

After winning 30 extra seats in the general elections three weeks ago and leading in polls, the socialist leader of Britain's Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn has received a rapturous welcome at Europe's largest greenfield music festival in the southwest of England.

He said the USA president is determined to add to existing global problems and accused British Prime Minister Theresa May of pandering to him.

"It is a very good idea".

Corbyn, invited to speak on the famous stage by festival founder Michael Eavis, said Glastonbury was about people coming together in support of causes like environmentalism. "I'm basically at the stage where they need to make me headline this thing - because they ain't had no British rappers headline this festival". "He's got young people out to vote".

JEREMY CORBYN has boasted that he will be Prime Minister by the end of the year, it emerged today.

Mr Eavis said: "Why didn't they vote in the referendum?"

"As for the guy himself I'm not his biggest fan". Renewal of the four submarines was backed by a free vote in Parliament previous year, by a large majority of MPs.

It was an audience former UKIP leader Nigel Farage doesn't even get in his wildest Brexiteer dreams, which is perhaps what made it inevitable that he would lash out at Corbyn's speech, and the BBC's airing of it.

Trade union worker Hazel Nolan (30), was working at the music festival's Solstice bar when Mr Corbyn surprised them with a visit.
