Unmentioned by the media – because they weren’t told – as MPs began a seventeen-day holiday Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn spent last night helping at a London homeless shelter.
With no fanfare and no photo opportunities, Corbyn spent his evening talking to homeless people and listening to their experiences during an appearance so closely guarded that even close ‘LOTO’ staff were not aware of it.
The SKWAWKBOX has obtained a candid snap taken during the visit to the Crisis centre in North London:
While May headed off to whichever residence she prefers for Christmas and centrists continued to tilt at windmills and undermine, Corbyn was out among some of this country’s most vulnerable, connecting as a human being and learning about their lives and the issues they face and understanding better what they feel and need.
If a better illustration of the disconnect between the elite of any rosette colour and people suffering in this country – and the change a Corbyn government will bring – you will struggle to find it.
