Glastonbury: Jeremy Corbyn 'inspired' by young voters
Jun 29 2017 by Francis Osborne
According to a Somerset Live report on an Eavis Q&A session at the festival, Eavis asked Corbyn: "When are you going to get rid of Trident?"
Fans of the Labour Party leader outnumbered those for Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran, as the chant "Oh, Jeremy Corbyn" rang round the world's biggest greenfield festival.
Thousands are due to watch him address the audience at Run The Jewels, while others cram into the Left Field tent for his talk at 4.30pm. "He was lovely, and I'm absolutely hyped".
"Millions of young people - Glastonbury people - voted for him", Mr Eavis told the festival's on-site newspaper. "There's a message on that wall for President Donald Trump", Corbyn said (via The Guardian).
"I wanna say thank you to Michael for lending us his farm, for giving the space all those years ago, for people to come here and enjoy music, good company and inspiring thought".

But three of the missiles, launched from a Kurdish region in eastern Iran, didn't even reach Syria, falling in Iraqi territory. Iranian Revolutionary Guard says it targeted ISIL bases in Deir Az Zor in retaliation for the June 7 attacks in Tehran .
In a speech on foreign policy last month, Corbyn said Trump has made the world a more risky place "by recklessly escalating the confrontation" with North Korea and Syria.
Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn said the festival's 81-year-old founder, Michael Eavis, "brought the spirit of great messages" through his event. "Build bridges, not walls". It's about all of us: "what we dream, what we want, what we achieve and what we want for everybody else". The elites got it wrong.
Corbyn has said he will try to force an early general election, dismissing the chances of a Tory government surviving with DUP support as ludicrous.
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke told Prime Minister Theresa May to "shut the door on the way out" as they closed the first day of music at the festival. "See them as a source of knowledge, a source of friendship and a source of inspiration".
Corbyn, who has been a prominent member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, has been consistent in his opposition to nuclear weapons throughout his political career but has said he would back party policy on the matter.
