Jeremy Corbyn ended his election campaign with a raucous, foot-stomping, joy-filled rally at a Gothic-style church in Islington.
Hundreds of supporters filled the church. Hundreds more stood outside, unable to get in but who, even though they could not hear him, stayed to the end anyway, surrounding Labour’s battle bus to cheer him as he left.
And with an expression of hope.The Labour leader told screaming fans, “We’re going to win tomorrow!” as he left the stage, following a 40 minute ‘greatest hits’ speech.
He told supporters: “Tomorrow you have the power to say our country can be better than this. It can be run in the interests of the majority; not the political and corporate elites.
And he said the deadly terror attacks of recent weeks should only serve to strengthen their resolve to take part in the democratic process.
He said: “People fought and died for our right to vote. In the course of this campaign people have lost their lives in Manchester and here in London – citizens of a free and democratic country.”
“We can honour the victims of these atrocities tomorrow by voting. By showing democracy that will never be cowed by terror and that hope can triumph over fear.”
