Op-ed: Acclaimed film maker Ken Loach has joined the so-called Corbyn circus as it rolled into Sheffield Friday.
A former Labour political hopeful and wealthy donor, Michael Foster, was published widely in the mainstream media last weekend calling the Corbyn leadership election 2016 campaign a circus and causing anger with his choice of words to describe supporters at rallies; he used the term Nazi stormtroopers and refused to apologise instead defending his verbal attack.
But many ordinary people are supporting Jeremy Corbyn and want him to stay on as Labour Party leader.
In Sheffield Friday living legend and lifelong socialist Ken Loach is turning his film making talents on Corbyn supporters. Loach has already gone on record to support Corbyn.
Mr Corbyn arrived in Sheffield Friday morning by train.
"The politician was pictured arriving at the railway station and posing for pictures with fans after stepping from his train - including larking around and making faces for a youngster and her mum" reports the Star.
As always Corbyn manages to charm without effort. It does not come across as staged or political opportunity just a genuine man responding to people.
Friday many parts of the country are experiencing heavy rain and Sheffield could be someting of a damp squib tonight; it is doubtful though that will dampen enthusiam or limit the number of people attending. A few thousand supporters turned out in Liverpool recently for a Corbyn rally in spite of the rain.
"Fri 19 Aug 2016, 6pm-8pm, Barkers Pool, outside City Hall, city centre - Jeremy Corbyn is coming to Sheffield for a public open air "Jeremy4Labour" rally. Let's hope Sheffield gives him as big a turnout as his last visit! (Rumour has it that Ken Loach will be there as well, to film the event.)
Former Labour leader Neil Kinnock held a disastrous rally in Sheffield in 1992.
He arrived by helicopter and with a great deal of razzmatazz.
What followed was an American styled rally that was embarrassing to watch. Whichever spin doctor or campaign manager was responsible was over paid and not fit for purpose.
That rally was in a stadium but Corbyn's is outside in the city to keep costs down; he is not for sale to the highest bidder, donor or lobbyist.
But in the end Kinnock, caught in the moment, let down his own campaign and Labour supporters. Labour lost the 92 election and as they say the rest is history.
Mr Corbyn is a substance over style veteran politician and hopefully his rally in Sheffield will be a huge success.
