Jeremy Corbyn receives standing ovation from packed out Youth Parliament
Jeremy Corbyn received a heartwarming standing ovation from a packed out House of Commons today.
The Leader of the Opposition joined aspiring politicians for the UK Youth Parliament’s debate in Westminster, and was warmly received after being introduced by the Speaker of the House John Bercow.
Captioning Corbyn as a man who “says what he means, and he means what he says” Bercow noted how Corbyn has passionately campaigned for young people.
The Labour leader delivered a huge election upset in 2017 after a surge of young voters backed his spirited campaign.
An electoral map released last month showed Labour would take 600 seats in parliament if only 18-24 year-olds were allowed to vote.
