Jeremy Corbyn MP addressing the meeting at Emmanuel Church HallCLP Vice chair Emma Ward Introducing Jeremy

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn MP addressed a packed meeting of local Labour Supporters at Loughborough's Emmanuel Church Hall last Friday, 8th September.


He first emphasised that the country's most pressing need is for a ready supply of Council Housing, explaining that inadequate housing conditions impacted on the Education of young people, the Health & Welfare of older and disabled people and the ability of people to gain suitable employment.

Continuing, he covered the Labour Party Policies on the NHS, Education, Adult Social Care, The Environment, Foreign Policy, Local Government and much more. A Labour Government, he said, will reverse damaging policies of austerity and improvements to vital services will be paid for by increased corporate taxation and taxation of the very rich.


Mr Corbyn emphasised that Labour was the only party to cost its manifesto at the recent general election, and that the policies contained in it would form the basis on which it would fight the next general election, which he hoped would come sooner rather than later.


He spoke for some 40 minutes without notes, with frequent bursts of applause for the points he made, before taking questions from the audience, including one from 9 year old Thomas Ronald. Jeremy received a lengthy standing ovation from the audience at the end of the evening.


Paul Boldrin, Chair of Loughborough Constituency Labour Party, said that the meeting had been both stimulating and enjoyable. There was also wide admiration among those present for the clear and personable way that Mr Corbyn had outlined Labour's policies, without unduly attacking other political parties.

The visit to Loughborough was the last of a long day of events for the Labour Party leader, who despite this, was, as ever, more than happy to stay behind and chat and have photos taken with the audience.

At the weekend, our candidate Jewel Miah published his election pledges.

‘These are my pledges to you, as your member of parliament I will be your voice on the big issues that affect us all’ 

Jewel is from Loughborough and he knows the everyday issues that affect ordinary residents as they affect him and his family too. He will stand up for what matters and promises to stand by the pledges he makes.

He is opposed to a hard Brexit and wants a deal that protects Jobs, your rights at work and allows access to the single market - Leaving Europe on good terms.

Economic Security, Jobs and Dignity in Retirement

Jewel understands the Economy; he has experience in running a multi-million pound business and knows that a strong economy is the heart beat of our country and its future prosperity. He gets it.
