Glastonbury crowds set to give Jeremy Corbyn rock star welcome

The radical leftist has opposed every single military intervention the United Kingdom has engaged in in the post-war period, and during the general election campaign, it was argued he was a threat to national security. Fed up with being told they never participate, and utterly fed up with being told that their generation was going to pay more to get less in education, in health, in housing, in pensions and everything else.

Jeremy Corbyn said he had been inspired by how many young people had got involved in politics as he addressed the crowd at the Glastonbury festival.

"When people think the same and co-operate the same, peace is possible and can be achieved".

He also praised the festival for inspiring arts and music and for promoting the importance of protecting the environment. I want to see a world where there is real opportunity for everybody in our society.

The crowd erupted when he quoted a verse from Masque of Anarchy by the poet Shelley: "Rise like lions after slumber, in unvanquishable number, shake your chains to earth like dew, which in sleep had fallen on you - ye are many, they are few".

Festival-goers surrounded his Land Rover Discovery and chanted "Oh, Jeremy Corbyn" to the tune of the White Stripes' Seven Nation Army as Mr Corbyn left the area.

He joins deputy leader Tom Watson as well as Yvette Cooper and Ed Balls, who have already been seen on the 900-acre site in Pilton, Somerset. "That's what we've spent our lives campaigning for too".

Spicer has become a household name for his combative press briefings, but they have become less frequent recently. That is the only conclusion one can draw, that when they give us answers, it somehow reads better in print".

One festival-goer, 32-year-old Claire Herbert from Llanelli in South Wales, said she thought more politicians should speak at such events.

Referring to Brexit fears hanging over the future of foreign nationals working in the UK, Corbyn said, "they all must stay and they all must be part of our community".

"I've heard people chanting Jeremy Corbyn around the whole site and I'm pretty happy about that as well". "I think he's a wonderful man and I think it's great that he is getting in touch with young voters".

Another fan who gave her name as Frankie said: "I shook his hand in a tiny tent".

But Darren Garrett, 39, Gillingham, Dorset, was not as impressed by Mr Corbyn.

Appearing between British singer-songwriter Craig David and USA rap act Run The Jewels, Corbyn - who promised during campaigning to abolish tuition fees - said he was proud to have led Labour into an election that delivered the biggest increase in the party's support since 1945.

The Labour leader then said a "collective" attitude had succeeded in securing healthcare as a human right in the United Kingdom following the World War I, and suggested that the same pressure be applied to overcome inequality today.
