Corbyn puts politics center stage at Glastonbury Festival

The UK's famed Glastonbury music festival has embraced an unlikely headline act: Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Corbyn took to the stage with the now-familiar chant of "Oh, Jeremy Corbyn" to the tune of Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes.

A volunteer was who was served a beer by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn at Glastonbury said it is the "best pint she's ever had".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will also appear on the Pyramid Stage to introduce U.S. rap act Run The Jewels.

The Labour leader arrived at the musical extravaganza and met festival staff as well as organiser Michael Eavis, 81. "We went out and talked to people, we went out to meet people and you know what, we went out and debated people".

"Look on the wall right over there that surrounds this wonderful festival".

He replied "Oh it's far too bad, I can't possibly tell you", he said, before adding: "Where's the nearest wheat field?"

The 68-year-old started his speech at the music festival at 4pm this afternoon and told a delighted crowd that Labour supporters are "not going back in any box" and that people are "fed up of being ignored".

The politician also made a jab at Donald Trump by pointing out a message that had been painted on a stage-side fence.

Money is donated to the organisations they support for every hour they work. Soccer fans in the United Kingdom have been using the not wholly complex compositional framework ("Oh + five-syllable name") for years but this seems to be have been the first time Jeremy Corbyn's name was used. "Just shut the door on your way out".

"I don't really want to get into politics", added Mike Kerr of rock group Royal Blood, "but he seems like someone who speaks for, particularly, my generation of people".

May is now trying to save herself by forming a coalition government; Corbyn meanwhile is vowing to "try to force an early general election".

Peter Hook, the bass player from Manchester bands Joy Division and New Order, led the crowd on the main Pyramid Stage in reflecting on "our hopes and our prayers for life, love and freedom, the things we are here to celebrate".
