Jeremy Corbyn gets rock star welcome at Glastonbury Festival


He's not your normal headline act, but British politician Jeremy Corbyn pulled a huge crowd at the Glastonbury Festival in the United Kingdom on Saturday afternoon.

Nigel Farage has been trolled on Twitter for his response to Jeremy Corbyn's speech at Glastonbury Festival.

This would go against Labour's pledge to continue with the nuclear submarine system, which appears in the signed manifesto Mr Corbyn gave to Mr Eavis during his appearance on the Pyramid stage.

"Oh, Jeremy Corbyn" to the tune of White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army".

He said Pakistan values Chinese positive role for sustainable peace and stability in Afghanistan, Radio Pakistan reported. The Pakistan army said the attacks are linked to sanctuaries across the border inside Afghanistan.

There are flags bearing Mr Corbyn's name, T-shirts featuring his face and even a sand sculpture depicting him dressed in fox hunting garb, riding a fox through fields of wheat towards Prime Minister Theresa May.

Theresa May needs to "get a grip" on the tower block evacuation situation, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said. "Politics is about the lives of all of us".

Introduced by Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, Corbyn took to the stage to deafening cheers and applause.

In a wide-ranging speech covering environmental issues as well as racism, Corbyn also spoke about the recent general election, saying he was proud of his party's campaign, which he said brought "a lot of people back into politics". "There's a message on that wall for President Donald Trump", he said, drawing disapproving sounds from the crowd.

The Labour Party said the Somerset farmer-turned-festival organisers was "paraphrasing" the conversation.

Any such move would be hard to get past the party's conference, in view of opposition from Mr Corbyn's trade union backers.

"This festival is about coming together, it's about music, yes but it's also for environment and for peace", he said. "Shut the door on the way out!"

The 81-year-old host of the festival made his comments at a Q&A at the Speakers Forum in the Green Futures area of Glastonbury.

A big thank-you to them. "We'll work hard and if we can find those gains we'll be right up there fighting for pole position". I think they still are favourites in terms of the fact their vehicle seems to work everywhere.

Corbyn said young people were getting involved in politics for the first time "because they were fed up with being told they don't matter and that their generation was going to pay more to get less".
