Labour’s 500,000-strong membership can win the party the next general election, Jeremy Corbyn will say – one day after thousands of supporters were excluded from voting in the leadership contest.
Corbyn is due to tell a Milton Keynes rally that Labour’s largest membership in decades will help the party be “at the heart of every community and win the next general election”.
The Conservatives won last year’s general election by nearly 2 million votes.
In what may be seen as an attempt to reassure the 130,000 members excluded from voting in the leadership contest after a Court of Appeal ruling on Friday, Corbyn will tell supporters they will be “a major part of our plan for government”.
