Jeremy Corbyn gets rock star welcome at Glastonbury Festival

Radiohead will take to the stage tonight as music concerts officially begin at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Mr Corbyn will speak for the first time on the main Pyramid Stage, a year after cancelling an appearance on a much smaller platform.

On Thursday, festival goers paid tribute to him in a quieter way.

Earlier, Hollywood star Johnny Depp apologised for joking about assassinating US President Donald Trump.

She said Mr Corbyn thanked the crowed gathered and told them that he hoped they were all enjoying the festival. "Build Bridges not walls", referring to the border wall that the USA president has made a corner-stone of his anti-immigration policies.

"What was fascinating about the last seven weeks of election campaigning around Britain is that the commentariat got it wrong, the elites got it wrong. Politics is about the lives of all of us".

Mr Corbyn said young people were told the "future doesn't really belong to them" while old people were made to a feel "a burden" whose homes would be taken off them.

He was driven to the Greenpeace area of the site, where he posed for pictures in the Greenpeace Cafe and was met by cheering crowds.

"Shake your chains to earth like dew, which in sleep had fallen on you". 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.

Saturday night's appearance also comes days after the announcement of the release of Foo Fighters' latest album, Concrete And Gold, a work which Hawkins jokingly described as "our most psychedelic, most Radiohead" record.

Corbyn was scheduled to appear at last year's event, but cancelled as it fell during the European Union referendum campaign.

Michael Eavis, who runs the huge musical and cultural event, asked the sports superstar to help launch some affordable housing in the local village of Pilton by planting a tree.

Despite never having been to the festival or done any work for WaterAid before, Millie chose to volunteer for the charity after looking up their Glastonbury project with friends. Corbyn seems to have picked up the mantle in some style.

Corbyn must be having a great time at the festival.
