Op-ed: Friday evening Jeremy Corbyn was in Sheffield for an open air rally.
Wet weather did not dampen the event or the spirit of those taking part.
The crowds turned out for Corbyn but the five local MPs did not. That is pretty much the same story as here in Hull. Here our three local Labour MPs were noticeable by their absence at a huge Corbyn rally in late July.
The Daily Mirror covered the Sheffield event. Their report titled "Hero worship for Jeremy Corbyn as thousands turn up at Sheffield rally" begins with "A spot of drizzle wasn't enough to put off the people of the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire."
Presumably that sells papers these days.
Hero worship? Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire?
A quick check and I see the report is penned by Mikey Smith a political reporter at the Mirror. I have discovered lately that I can easily spot this guy's work especially when it refers to Corbyn.
So enough of that and we will share the following from Jo Riches Corbyn's local campaign manager who posted this on social media Friday evening "On way home from an exhilarating couple of days in Sheffield. Awesome events with wonderful people - huge thanks to all at Momentum Sheffield, the Trades Council, Unite the Union, our speakers and everyone who did so much in a short space of time. The rally was easy organisationally compared to the Ken Loach film - but I know all the efforts have paid off. Proud to be part of Team Corbyn. It was wonderful being a Regional Organiser last year but feel so much closer as part of the team in the whole campaign this year. Brilliant support as ever from Marshajane, James and Yannis."
Scout aroumd online for images and footage from people at the rally.
Social media is bound to have plenty to share.
You can then make up your own mind whether it was a good event or not.
If you like what you see Mr Corbyn is in Harrogate Saturday and there are more events scheduled.
