Jeremy Corbyn: ‘This crisis shows us how deeply we depend on each other’

JEREMY Corbyn was on his feet in for his final Prime Minister’s Questions as Labour leader on Wednesday.

The Islington North MP used his last appearance to urge the country to work together to combat Covid-19 and pushed Boris Johnson to make clear to the public the guidelines for the coronavirus lockdown.

He also spoke for those people living in crowded, rundown flats who are most affected by the current measures, as well as those facing economic hardship.

“This crisis shows us how deeply we depend on each other. We will only come through this as a society with a huge collective effort,” Mr Corbyn said.

“At a time of crisis no one is an island, no one is self-made. The wellbeing of the wealthiest corporate chief executive officer depends on the outsourced worker cleaning their office.”

Mr Johnson paid tribute to Mr Corbyn, and said: “We may not agree on everything but no one can doubt his sincerity and his determination to build a better society.”

Mr Corbyn warned the Tory leader “my voice will not be stilled” and vowed to keep on campaigning.
