    Labour will win Southport, Jeremy Corbyn tells crowd on latest visit



    Labour "will win Southport" Jeremy Corbyn asserted on his second visit to the town since last year's favourable general election result.

    Speaking to party members at an event in the town's Prince of Wales Hotel, he revealed how there is "more to come" after pushing the Liberal Democrats into third place in GE2017 and last month having their first ever elected Labour councillors in the town since the creation of Sefton in 1974, thanks to resounding majority wins in Kew and Norwood, described by the Labour Leader as "most incredible".

    To cheers and applause, he continued:

    "I don't know which is going to come first, another general election or another chance to gain more seats in Southport but whichever it is, we are going to win both."

    Praising Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Southport, Liz Savage, and the local party's strong campaigning in the town, he also highlighted how Southport Labour activists were increasingly involved in community work, telling the media:

    " Labour is very active and absolutely part of Southport life, we are talking to people all the time about their lives, about their jobs, about their housing and about their hopes."

    In a wide-ranging speech that touched on Brexit, the creation of a national education service, housing and how a Labour government would revive the fortunes of Southport and the country, he even managed to reveal his comedy skills with a very passable Boris Johnson imitation that went down very well with the audience packed into the hotel's main ballroom.

    Liz Savage says the event was "inspirational" to party members and a fitting reward for all the hard work being put in:

    " It was fantastic to see Jeremy here again in such a relatively short space of time. I know he feels that the local party is bursting with positivity and we just need to carry that on; all pulling together to ensure that come the next general election, we are ready to stop the cuts and cut the Tories. There is only one way of doing that, by voting Labour."

    A thoroughly decent man who had so much time for people, brilliant visit.

    Labour is the only party to have a realistic chance of getting into Government. The LibDems and greens are nowhere. The policies are good for ordinary people, both locally and nationally. So Vote Labour at the next election and the one after and the one after.....

    Did JC mention how he was going to 'revive the fortunes of Southport and the country'?

    Fitting that Labour should meet in the Prince of Wales Hotel. Crumbling, way past its best, cheap but not so cheerful and a total embarrassment.

    The man is an economically illiterate, terrorist loving, anti Semite who despises this country and everything it stands for.

    Would have thought one of the attributes a politician who had aspirations of leading the country should have, would be judgement or/and the ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions, so bearing that in mind anyone who appointed Dianne Abbott as Shadow Home Secretary must be seriously lacking. Add to that he had an affair with Abbott in the late 70's suggests apart from anything else he's partially sighted.

    Yes, I also remember watching Terry Hall and his puppet, Lennie the Lion. They were hilarious.

    "decent man" my arse. Unprincipled shyster who loathes Britain and thinks we'd all be better with Venezuelan style economics. The good news is that Labour membership is now falling under Corbyn, they've even had to give free tickets away for the JezFest love-in because no-one wanted to pay to go.


    Even with really crap non-conservative "Conservatives" in the government, and a terrible PM, people's voting intentions are clearly not feeling the Jezza lurve:


    Current Westminster voting intention:


    CON: 44% (+2)
    LAB: 37% (-2)
    LDEM: 8% (-1)
    UKIP: 3% (-)
    GRN: 3% (+1)

    Ahem I'm sorry to burst your bubble but Survation was the most accurate at the last election and they pretty much have the main parties neck and neck:

    Westminster voting intention:
    CON: 41% (-)
    LAB: 40% (-)
    LDEM: 9% (+1)
    GRN: 2% (-)
    UKIP: 2% (-1)

    via @Survation, 31 May - 04 Jun

    I'd hardly call that a triumph for Jezza at this stage in a parliament and with such a useless PM in office. Pretty dire for the comrades.

    I don't suppose any of the Jezzites at the meeting asked him how we could have nationalisation of the railways as members of the EU or in a single market ?

    Or remove the private sector from the NHS ?

    From the Utilities ?

    How do they keep people supporting him, is he a hypnotist ?

    Is he still offering students a free lunch or has that gone.
