Jeremy for Labour, Bristol

There was a Jeremy for Labour rally in Bristol tonight. 

The Northerner was interviewed by someone from the BBC who seemed to want him to slag the PLP off rather than talk about Jeremy Corbyn's policy for the arts. 
Speakers included Leila Ward, a 14 year old activist, a couple of Bristol councillors and one, a former refugee, from Islington, Geoff Shears from Union Solidarity International, Steve Preddy from Unite, and Diane Abbott.  

It's hard to judge how many people there are in a crowd when you are in the middle of it. Local BBC news put the number at 1,000. On Twitter I've seen estimates ranging from 3,000 to 5,000. I suspect it was somewhere near 3,000. 

The seagulls were there to hear the main man ... 

... as were the unicorns ... 


... and the weather vane ... 


... Jeremy Corbyn. 

And a fine speech it was too. 

The times, they are a-changing.
