    It's finally confirmed! Southport Labour is delighted to announce that our party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, will be here to hold a rally on the beach!



    Jeremy's visit is part of a tour of key marginal seats and reflects the remarkable rise of Labour within the town in the last two years or so.

    In 2015, Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Southport, Liz Savage, doubled the party's vote and then almost repeated the feat again this year when Labour came second for the first time since John Prescott stood here in 1966. In June we also went one better and achieved our highest ever vote in Southport.

    Another 837 votes would have seen a quadrupling of the 2010 result for Labour, which in two elections in just over two years is a fantastic achievement.
    Jeremy will be here to recognise that and talk about much more on August 18th. He'll be addressing the beachfront crowd at 6pm so people are advised to arrive by 5.30pm to avoid any difficulties.

    The rally will take place at Southport Beach car park on the front at the southern end of Marine Drive behind Pleasureland.
    There are various car parks nearby but Southport Flower Show is also taking place on the day so if at all possible it's recommended to take public transport or make suitable arrangements.
    As you can see from the photos of his visit to West Kirby, Jeremy's rallies are very popular, it gets busy so please bear that in mind when planning your visit.
    We look forward to seeing you and Jeremy there!

    JC comes to Southport, well the second coming has been long predicted.

    Will the catering be fish butties ?

    I hope the town will be able to cope with the specious ones arrival.

    What will he promise the fervent hordes, the non contributors and net recipients ?

    I hope every one enjoys the show and leaves the place better than they find it.

    I was on the beach and few days a go..it was muddy, smelly and there was far too much litter about! I wonder if Jeremy Corbyns comrades in Bootle will give it a clean in his honour!?

    Great news, lets hope he will see the state of the beach and see how under the Liberals and Labour leaderships they have destroyed it. Tell him to bring a lawnmower.

    Who actually gives a crap.

    To be a politician, you need to be able to bulls**t and he's been in politics for a loooong while........

    Can only hope the tide comes in very high! It is surprising how many people fail to see through his charade.

    I hope it rains on his visit, will the railway staff be on strike so all the bootle labourites have to drive to Southport. This wealthy man has never done a days work in his life, except to criticise others who are trying to run the country and make it a better place to live. No, I will not be volting Labour.

    Wouldn't it be prudent to find another VENUE for his visit rather than in a place where there is already likely to be some congestion?

  12. dav says:10/08/2017 12:55 PM
    Is he the weed section at the flower show?

  13. ECHOEONE says:10/08/2017 01:02 PM
    It will be like Orange day all over again!

    Correct Ped, However prudence is not one of Sefton Labour councillors attributes.
