Chunky Mark Video of Corbyn Rally in Broxtowe

Here’s an antidote to all the ant-Corbyn smears and propaganda by the Tories, the media and the ‘Independents’. It’s this two and a half minute video put up by Chunky Mark the Artist Taxi Driver of a Labour party rally for Corbyn in Broxtowe.

The video shows the immense crowds there, and the banner for East Midlands Labour Party. Mark asks one of the ladies speaking there what she thinks of Anna Soubry, the austerity supporting former Tory, who joined the Independents the other day. The lady replies

‘She’s a Tory! She’s a Tory! The new Independent grouping has cuddled up to Tories. What do they think they’re doing? All their doing is propping up the Tory government. It’s disgraceful.’

She’s not alone in condemning them. Another woman says ‘Anna Soubry’s resigned from her party so we’re looking forward to a bye-election and getting some in place, who can sort out the problems around here. The cuts have had a detrimental effect on elderly people, on schools – I’m a teacher’ A young woman says that the party needs to pull together and get behind Corbyn. They should be fighting the Tory government, not among themselves. What is important is to get a socialist into No. 10.

A young man appears, who says that he thinks it really is important that there should be a bye-election, and that Anna Soubry should do the right thing. She has no mandate to represent people on the new basis here. An Asian gent says it’s nothing to do with politics. Soubry should resign and have a bye-election. Mark asks him why he thinks she won’t resign. He replies that it’s because she wants to stay and a hold on to power.

The video then moves on to show the first lady on the podium telling the crowd that the Independents are wrong, and they just don’t care. They would rather see a Tory government than a real, socialist Labour government. They would rather support the politics of austerity, the draining of our public services of the money that they need. They would rather see the bitterness and appalling unfairness of Universal Credit.

The video then goes to an elderly White man, who says that it’s a continuation of what Thatcher started, and it’s got even worse. He thought Thatcher was bad enough, but… And then he shakes his head, saying ‘I don’t know what’s really happening.’

The video then moves back to show the first lady telling the crowd ‘Stand tall! Stand firm! Be proud! Our future is coming and it is coming soon! I introduce to you the next prime minister, Jeremy Corbyn!’ There is rapturous applause.

Back to the elderly gent, who says, ‘Corbyn – they’re frightened of him. And they’re frightened of all the their privileges and wealth dwindled away’.

The video ends with a picture of Chunky Mark with a cardboard placard reading ‘2019: Get Rid of the Tories’.

Absolutely! Get rid of them both within and without the Labour party!
