MIA says the Labour Leader is actually 'real'.
The plain-speaking singer-rapper, who has just dropped new track ‘Goals’, endorsed the Labour Leader in a video shared on her social channels.
“I don’t usually believe politicians, but I think Corbyn is actually, like, real,” she says in the video. “So this is a once in a lifetime opportunity – please go vote. You don’t have to trust a politician or vote ever again, but just do it now.”
Watch the clip below.
MIA has also endorsed Corbyn on Twitter today.
Following a successful campaign, Corbyn’s Labour Party is narrowly trailing the Conservatives in the latest polls. He is especially popular with younger voters, but in the last general election, just 47% of under-25s who registered actually turned out to vote.
The Labour leader has recently responded to the suggestion that his party is “the new punk“.
