Cheering from thousands at Nottingham Corbyn rally

Jeremy Corbyn received a fantastic reception from 2,500 people at an open air rally in Nottingham on 7 September.

Jeremy spelled out the 10 points of his programme for leader of the Labour Party. He represents a break with the past Blairite leadership of the Labour Party. He highlighted that Labour's programme at the last general election was at fault and led to defeat.

"Sure Start workers and teachers were not to blame for the recession of 2008", he said. It was the greed of the unregulated banking sector which caused the crash. He went on to say that the measure of success of a Labour government would be taking people out of poverty and extending workers' rights.

He then explained his policies on housing and the NHS which were greeted with cheering and enthusiasm by the audience.

Jeremy also spent some time in explaining his energy programme. He is in favour of the establishment of hundreds of publicly owned energy companies to provide competition for big energy providers. This should be a subject for debate as surely the nationalisation of the big energy companies should be a priority in any such programme.

Socialist Party members received a good response from the audience. We sold 119 copies of the Socialist at the event and distributed hundreds of leaflets.

This was the largest open air left-wing public rally in Nottingham for probably decades. It was so large it even received a brief report on the local BBC radio station!
