Corbyn’s reception at Tranmere Rovers’ ground in 2017 fired rocket boosters under Labour’s campaign. Tonight’s BBC Question Time leaders’ special saw another Tranmere moment – as huge crowd gathered outside venue to welcome Labour leader
The defining moment and probably the turning point of the 2017 general election was Jeremy Corbyn’s appearance at a music event at Tranmere Rovers FC’s ground. Over twenty thousand young people roared for the Labour leader and the ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn’ chant was born.
Tonight saw what insiders and activists believe was the ‘Tranmere moment’ of the 2019 campaign – as a large crowd gathered on a cold, wet November evening outside the venue of this evening’s BBC Question Time leaders’ special to welcome Corbyn and responded in huge fashion as he spoke to them before going in:
Corbyn went on to win the Question Time programme by a distance, just as he did on ITV on Tuesday.
Dynamism, authenticity, excitement, vision and policies – the Labour general election campaign is sparking a groundswell of passion for change just as great as in 2017 and potentially greater.
And it is already being seen in the latest polls.
Game on. Change is coming. Vote Labour.
