Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is set to visit Leicester for a rally this Saturday
The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has revealed plans to visit Leicester this weekend, as the General Election campaign ramps up.
Labour party members in Leicester have been sent an invite via email to come and see Corbyn speak at a rally somewhere in Leicester city centre at 1pm on Saturday (6 May).
The exact location of the rally has not yet been released by party officials due to security reasons, but our guess would be Jubilee Square if they are going for an outdoor speech.
In the email to Labour supporters in the city, Jeremy Corbyn said:
I hope you’ll join me this Saturday May 6 as Labour steps up its campaign to win the General Election and for a government to transform Britain.
Across the country, people are being held back as never before. The country is being run for the rich when, instead, we should all be able to lead richer lives.
My pledge is that Labour will build a fairer Britain where prosperity is shared, where everyone is rewarded properly for their hard work and where a home to rent or buy is affordable – a society for the many not the few.
The city of Leicester is very much a Labout stronghold, with three MPs, a city mayor and the majority of the council all members of the Labour party. However, this has not stopped the Conservative party from targeting Liz Kendall’s Leicester West seat in the upcoming election, where she holds a majority of 7,000.
The Conservative’s candidate for the Leicester West seat, Jack Hickey said:
Only a vote for the Conservatives on June 8 can secure Theresa May’s strong and stable leadership and allow the Government to negotiate the best possible Brexit deal for both Leicester and Britain.
The alternative is Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister propped up by others, including the SNP, in a coalition of chaos.
