More than 50 of his frontbenchers resigned en masse in a determined attempt to dislodge Mr Corbyn.
He even engaged with people who disagreed with him and urged them to change their minds. The audience liked it, and so the gaping holes in Corbyn’s policies didn’t seem to matter much.
He said immigration would “probably” come down under a Labour government “but I don’t want to be held to this”.
He restarted his political campaign after a three-day pause seemingly blaming our foreign policy for terror in the U. I was cross at his timing, angry at the content of the talk and mad as a box of frogs that he seemed to be excusing terrorism as retaliation for intervention overseas.
But the strange thing is you can't be mad at Jeremy for long.
You wouldn't want to be married to him - he looks a bit vegan in a vest - but on a Friday afternoon at around 6pm, he makes you feel pretty good about the world. At a time when five children remain in a critical condition in hospital, when the nation waits under a Critical threat level and our Accident and Emergency units across the country were put on standby, words matter. That all those on the watch list, 'known to the authorities', are soon going to be 'known to incarceration' instead. But that was not the message Jeremy Corbyn came to give.
He took to the stage and seemed to point the finger of blame at ourselves.But while Mr Corbyn clung on to his top job in Labour after a bruising summer re-election campaign against Owen Smith, his MPs told of their despair at his woeful leadership.And many of the party's big beasts who have experienced political life in government queued up to call for him to go.Jeremy Paxman had one embarrassing quotation from him in 1982 saying the war was a “Tory plot”, but Corbyn, picking up speed again, swerved back off the grass verge and onto the safe line of saying he wanted negotiations.The Labour leader was even prepared to imply – although he didn’t quite say so – that he would be prepared to order a drone strike against a terrorist abroad who was planning a bombing campaign in Britain. His line on calling Hamas and Hezbollah his friends was rubbish – “I was using inclusive language in order to get a meeting under way” – but he has learned how to skirt around this one often enough now that he can do it without hesitation. Paxman’s clever-clever decision to try to attack Corbyn from the left, for failing to get all the things he really believes in into the Labour manifesto, was a failure.Culture minister Matt Hancock says the BBC’s coverage of Jeremy Corbyn’s appearance at Glastonbury missed a key moment — when the Labour leader was booed.
