Kate Nash has come out in support of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

In a video posted to Jeremy Corbyn’s official Twitter account, the singer-songwriter confirmed that she’ll be voting Labour in next week’s General Election 2017.

“I’m voting for Labour because I really care about the NHS,” Nash states in the clip. “I care about workers’ rights and education, humanitarian rights and the planet. I love the manifesto and I love Jeremy’s promises and pledges.

“To me it’s about looking at something and seeing if that is gonna take care of the most vulnerable people in the country,” she continues, “then it gives everybody the best shot.” Watch the clip below.
