Jeremy Corbyn gets rock star welcome at Glastonbury Festival

Radiohead Glastonbury 2017

Will Corbyn be the real star of Glastonbury 2017?

Corbyn's comments on taking residency in Number 10 reflect his new-found post-election confidence, and recent polls that put Labour ahead of the Tories, against hopes of another election if the minority Tory government blunders. "That's what we've spent our lives campaigning for too". They believed that Jeremy would lead us to annihilation; they believed, most of them, that nobody with a majority under 5,000 had a chance of coming back, and it was very sad in those final days and hours.

"They were fed up with being denigrated, fed up with being told they don't matter, fed up with being told they never participate and utterly fed up with being told that their generation was going to pay more to get less".

Even before his arrival, music fans at the festival were singing "Oh, Jeremy Corbyn" to the tune of White Stripes' Seven Nation Army.

He also took a swipe at Theresa May's proposals for European Union citizens which fell flat in Brussels on Friday.

But he may have revealed more than he meant to in the private chat with Mr Eavis who said: "Wasn't he fantastic?"

Addressing crowds from the main stage at the Worthy Farm site, he urged festival-goers to "build bridges not walls" in an apparent dig at Donald Trump.

He also shouted: "See you later Theresa. Just shut the door on your way out".

The English rock band, which is comprised of Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Ed O'Brien, Colin Greenwood, and Phil Selway, took to the Pyramid stage last night to wow crowds at the three-day music extravaganza, which took place in Somerset, England.

In a speech on foreign policy last month, Corbyn said Trump has made the world a more unsafe place "by recklessly escalating the confrontation" with North Korea and Syria.

Britain's parliament was also targeted in a major cyber attack, weeks after the National Health Service grappled with a similar attack, crippling several services.

He then headed over to the Solstice bar.

Festival organisers have given one major headlining slot to a British hip-hop act, as grime collective Boy Better Know will close the festival on the Other stage, Glastonbury's second largest, on Sunday (25Jun17).
