Behind is Ms Rust’s husband Marcus and daughter Emilia Saying that the King s Lynn line passed through his Islington constituency at Finsbury Park, he said: I am very interested in railways and I know it is frequently overcrowded on this line. This journey was an example what needs to be done to make it better. They all pile on at Cambridge and it was absolutely packed.

It is ridiculous. It is a crucial artery for people s lives and indeed the same is true of Norwich. Norwich 90 is a possibility and something I will make a priority.

The visit to Norfolk came after a tumultuous week for the opposition leader. On Wednesday there were major splits in his party as Labour MPs voted for and against his opposition to bombing Syria. But the following day, Labour won an unexpectedly handsome victory in the Oldham East by-election, easily holding the seat with an 11,000 majority.

Asked if he was feeling the pressure, he said: I ve had a great week. I don t know if I was surprised by the size of the Oldham victory but I was very confident. A young member of my team had told me what was going to happen and he was spot on!

Mr Corbyn revealed that he was a big fan of King s Lynn. He said he and his wife came up last year for a break. It is a very nice town and I am looking forward to coming back again soon.

Mr Corbyn was met by Labour s parliamentary candidate at the last General Election, Jo Rust. She presented him with a railway poster of King s Lynn. He was coming for a Christmas gathering of members of the GMB union at Middleton, something he agreed to do having come to the Burston Strike Rally, near Diss, in September.

He was bearing gifts for Dave Dennis, branch secretary of GMB No1 branch, who had organised the event: I have a bottle of House of Commons wine but I know Dave is, like me, a big fan of railways so I found today a very nice book on steam railways. The Labour leader was delivered back at Lynn within three hours to catch the train back to London. Ms Rust said that Mr Corbyn received a warm welcome at the GMB gathering, which was also attended by union general secretary Tim Roach, former general secretary Paul Kenny and former Norwich North MP Ian Gibson.

Ms Rust said: He spoke about the amazing work trade unions do in creating a caring and sharing society. Dave was overwhelmed with his presents, as I knew he would be, and blown away by the thoughtfulness of Jeremy when he is working so hard.

12:49 Sunday 06 December 2015 Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn paid a flying visit to Norfolk on Saturday night when he arrived to address a trades union gathering near King s Lynn. Mr Corbyn came by train from London to Lynn with his wife Laura and immediately said his journey had shown how desperately rail services in this area needed investment.

ANL-150609-174603001 12:19 Saturday 12 September 2015 Jeremy Corbyn has been elected as the new Labour Party leader in a spectacular victory and much of the success for his triumph is being attributed to an accountant from Downham Market. Newspapers have reported that the little known Richard Murphy is the main architect of his economic plan. The Guardian newspaper described Mr Murphy, a self-employed accountant who lives with his GP wife and two teenage children in Downham, as the man behind Corbynomics .

It reports that Mr Murphy has forged a reputation over more than a decade as a pugnacious and effective campaigner against tax evasion. It suggests he could even be a future Chancellor of the Exchequer under a Corbyn-led Labour government, although it says he has said he is not interested in such roles. It quotes him speaking last weekend in Cambridge at a Corbyn rally and saying: How is it that the UK s top bosses are paid 183 times more than the average worker in this country?

This is because right now we let those bosses do what they like with our public companies, he argued. For 30 or more years we have been told about Tina that There Is No Alternative to mainstream economics You came tonight for a rally. Well, actually I want to tell you that you came for a funeral.

Tina is dead. Tonight, I tell you there is an alternative. Mr Murphy, an economics graduate from Ipswich, has written a number of academic books and was a founder director of a company that once held the European licence for the game Trivial Pursuit.

The Guardian said: He has recently reinvented himself more as an economist, writing The Courageous State, a polemical book about the role of governments and markets, which even included, as he modestly points out himself, a draft budget speech for a future chancellor. Another book, The Joy of Tax, will follow shortly. It says the heart of Corbynomics is what he calls people s QE , a policy of using money created by the Bank of England to invest in public infrastructure projects, at the same time as boosting employment and economic growth.

Mr Corbyn won on the first round with 59.5 per cent of the vote.

Andy Burnham was a distant second with 19 per cent, Yvette Cooper 17 per cent and Liz Kendall 4.5 per cent. /if} #if card-flag} /if} > card-author} > card-avatar} card-content}} > card-media} > card-timestamp} > card-action} ]]> References ^ Terms and Conditions (www.johnstonpress.co.uk) ^ No thanks, take me straight to the site.

Rupert Mallin: OVER 3,000 AT THE ANNUAL BURSTON STRIKE …

Over 3,000 people attended the annual Burston Strike Rally this afternoon in Norfolk to hear Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn MP. Here, with the rally winding down, is Jeremy Corbyn and MP Clive Lewis in front of the cameras. The best atmosphere I’ve experienced in going to the annual event, off and on, for 27 years.

There is a real sense that a grassroots movement is emerging among workers. To survive as Leader of The Labour Party – against the Blairites of his own party, the media and the big business bosses, let alone the Tories – Jeremy Corbyn must involve this growing movement – both those inside the Labour Party and those outside it. At the close was a punk band with passion – The Hurriers 1 .

Excellent stuff and a day to remember.
