Queues around the building show appetite for real change
Such is the excitement around Labour’s general election campaign, outstanding policies and the public’s appetite for real change that queues formed around the block to get into the Manchester Apollo for a Labour campaign rally this evening, in spite of foul weather.
If the Tories hoped that a winter election would prevent people turning out to campaign or to vote, the evidence suggests they’re going to be disappointed:
The Apollo holds 3,500 people and it was far from unlikely that not all those waiting would be able to get in.
Boris Johnson, meanwhile, is sticking to Theresa May’s disastrous formula of closed visits surrounded by glum-looking staff and stage-managed, tiny audiences in an attempt to fake what Labour clearly has authentically and in abundance.
Such realities are, of course, extremely unlikely to make it onto the BBC or other broadcasters, so as ever it’s up to Labour’s supporters to spread awareness.
