Jeremy Corbyn Hails ‘Absolutely Massive’ Crowds At His Leadership Rallies

Corbyn told the crowd, which was gathered by his leadership campaign to discuss Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) issues, it showed the “importance of struggling together to achieve things that benefit all of us”.

“That mass movement that arose last summer ended up with an amazing result in the leadership election last year when 280,000 people voted and a 60% majority was achieved,” he said.

“I’m not pretending the last ten months has been the easiest of times for anybody.

“But I say this, If you are to represent people, if you are to have a mass movement, then we have to owe our allegiance to the people and the mass movement and the support of many people who wanted to see politics done very differently.”
