Things are changing: 20,000 sing for Corbyn at Wirral rock festival!
Dave Jones, Wirral Socialist Party
About 6,000 people descended on West Kirby, on the Wirral, to hear Jeremy Corbyn on 20 May. West Kirby is a traditionally Tory-voting area of the marginal West Wirral seat held by Corbyn-supporter Margaret Greenwood, and has never seen such a gathering.
Following a passionate speech by Corbyn, there was a real sense that things are changing. His pro-worker policies are clearly finding an echo.
Later that evening Corbyn stopped off at a local music festival at Tranmere Rovers' football ground, to give an impromptu speech before indie rockers The Libertines. A risk perhaps, as no one could be sure of the response.
But he left to the sound of 20,000 people singing "there's only one Jeremy Corbyn." On the day we sold 130 copies of the Socialist.
