Jeremy Corbyn gets rock star welcome at Glastonbury Festival

"And there's a message on that wall for President Donald Trump", the liberal politician said as the crowd booed at the mention of Trump.

It was an audience former UKIP leader Nigel Farage doesn't even get in his wildest Brexiteer dreams, which is perhaps what made it inevitable that he would lash out at Corbyn's speech, and the BBC's airing of it.

Corbyn was pictured at the event pulling pints of beer for joyful music fans, and his name has also become a festival chant for revelers.

Trump to welcome India's prime minister to White House
Both leaders warmly shook hands and smiled in what was their first ever meeting. Trump welcomed the parting gesture, patting Modi kindly on the back.

He said the U.S. president is determined to add to existing global problems and accused British Prime Minister Theresa May of pandering to him.

Great tunes, crap weather and a tendency to forget where your tent is are just some rituals that every festival goer adheres to, but there's another rule that's more sacred than most.

"And if you see that far", he said to the crowd, "look at the wall that surrounds this festival".

Mark Warner of Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said , "This administration never ceases to amaze me". The president's tweets on Thursday left open the possibility that the conversations may have been taped without his knowledge.

"I simply say to Theresa May, if she has the time this afternoon to be watching Glastonbury, we are ready for another election as soon as you like", he said.

Referring to Brexit fears hanging over the future of foreign nationals working in the UK, Corbyn said, "they all must stay and they all must be part of our community". "Build bridges, not walls", Corbyn said. It's about all of us: "what we dream, what we want, what we achieve and what we want for everybody else".

Addressing the recent election result he said: "The elites got it wrong!" Politics is about the lives of all of us, and the wonderful campaign that I was involved with, that I was so proud to lead, brought people back into politics because they believed there was something on offer for them. He told a headliner-sized crowd that millions of young people who voted for him would not be silenced or sidelined. Because they were fed up with being denigrated, fed up with being told they don't matter. "See them as a source of knowledge, a source of friendship and a source of inspiration". Well it didn't quite work out like that, did it?

"And that politics that got out of the box isn't going back into the box".
