The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will be visiting Southend on Thursday 30th November for a rally in the town centre.
He has indicated recently that Rochford and Southend East is a ‘marginal’ constituency that he is targeting, and this visit is a strong indication that it is on his ‘hit list.’
According to an update on the Eastern Labour website:
Jeremy Corbyn will be visiting Southend this Thursday 30 November to rally members in the now marginal seat of Rochford & Southend East!
He will be meeting members to encourage them to join the campaign and to talk about how Labour will transform the country when we win the next General Election, which could come at any time.
To come along, please register here. Spaces will be limited. You will need to arrive by 12.30pm prompt for a 12.45pm start.
The venue, which will be close to Southend town centre, will be confirmed nearer the time to members who have registered successfully.
Speaking recently about the seat, Corbyn said:
“The places that we are going to prioritise for winning are Rochford and Southend East, Norwich North and Colchester, which have not traditionally been Labour seats and it shows just how far our party is advancing.
“We are winning along the south coast, we are winning along the east coast of this country.
“Labour is a party which is campaigning in every single part of the country.”
