The Ladbroke Grove native goes on to argue that the Tories are trying to “dismantle” the NHS, which he calls the “jewel of the UK”.

NME recently spoke to Jeremy Corbyn. Check back for the full interview soon.

Corbyn recently spoke at a Libertines concert at Prenton Park, the home of Tranmere Rovers FC.

He told the crowd at the gig: “This is a fantastic chance and opportunity. Merseyside has a history of music, and is the music capital of our country. I want a country where everybody can play sport if they want to, every child can learn music, and society is brought together by that. Do you want housing, do you want care, and do you want a society coming together? Or, do you want selective education and fox hunting?”
