Swanley’s Angela George met Jeremy Corbyn at the Labour Remain conference on Thursday 2nd June. Jeremy came down to talk to Angela after giving a tremendous speech campaigning for Britain to stay in and reform the European Union, rather than leave it.
Angela was thrilled to bits to get a chance to talk to her Leader Jeremy Corbyn. At first she felt a bit nervous but Jeremy quickly made her feel relaxed and at ease. Angela said:
Jeremy has a wonderful way with people. He has such a fine sense of humour. He was making lots of jokes and asked where I was from. When I said I was from Swanley that was stuck in Micheal Fallon’s constituency – true blue – he said “That must be very hard for you. We will help you all we can.” I just felt so inspired by Jeremy. He has such presence, and you can see that he is really committed to helping people.”
Angela was an outstanding Labour councillor and is hoping to stand again in the forthcoming elections.
Angela was shocked when she started to get an avalanche of emails, messages and calls from friends saying that they were watching her on BBC 10.00pm news that Thursday night.
Make sure you look out for her and ask for autograph. Angela is a star now!
