Corbyn speaks on the Level

with No Comments

Thousands of people turned out on The Level on Saturday evening as the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn kicked off his party’s conference with a stirring speech.

After being introduced with a touching speech by a close friend from his days as a Haringey councillor as “my comrade, my friend and my leader”, Mr Corbyn smiled out over park on Saturday evening as a familiar “oh, Jer-e-my-Cor-byn” refrain rang out.

The biggest cheer of the evening came when he praised the general election campaigning efforts of young people, saying: “We were not going to let them take away the hopes of a generation with their meanness, nastiness and austerity-led politics.”
