Labour leader spoke to huge crowd during Durham Miners’ Gala about film-maker who told him “Jeremy, I want to give a voice to the working class in the films that I make”
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has paid moving tribute to Labour film-maker Simon Baker, who died two weeks ago at the age of just forty-five.
Durham Miners’ Gala attracts crowds in excess of 200,000 people from all parts of the Labour movement, who heard Corbyn say:
Simon Baker was, among many other things, the maker of Labour’s recent ground-breaking party political broadcasts and of the Labour Voices film series. He is survived by his partner and young son.
A fundraiser for his family is still open.
