Jeremy Corbyn at Labour Rally in St Leonards
In the Hastings and Rye constituency Labour MP Peter Chowney was only just beaten by Conservative MP Amber Rudd (Boooo! Hissss!) by a couple of hundred votes, so Jeremy Corbyn popped in to Warrior Square Gardens in St Leonards on Saturday the 1st of July 2017 to say Hi to local supporters and try to boost the local Labour party support, Great speeches from Jeremy Corbyn ( Labour Party leader and hopefully future UK Prime Minister ), Peter Chowney ( Labour MP for Hastings and Rye ), Louise Hersee ( Political Education Officer at Hastings and Rye Labour party ) and Jennie Formby ( Unite the Union South East Regional Secretary ). All the speeches were amazing and I was proud to be there, standing less than 20 feet from people that I really look up to! The crowd were excited and cheered every chance they got, even breaking into singing of "Oh Jeremy Corbyn!" a few times!!! Some local people were sad that they missed the rally, but even as members of the local CLP ( Constituency Labour Party ) we only found out a couple of days before the event! Even so there were definitely at least a couple of thousand people there, which is pretty impressive with such short notice. Feel free to share. comment etc!!!
