Show people love this Christmas – Corbyn

In his Christmas message, Jeremy
Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, calls for people to show each other care
and love. He says Britain is a “compassionate” country with people thinking of
others at this time of year, as well as enjoying themselves.

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour
Party, said:

“At Christmas we spend time at home
with family and friends.

“It’s a time of the year when we think
about others. Like those who have no home to call their own or who are sleeping
rough on our streets.

“We think about those who feel cut off
and lonely. Many older citizens to whom we owe so much will be spending what
should be a time of joy alone.

“We think of others such as carers who
look after loved ones, people with disabilities or dementia.

“And abroad we think of those living in
nations like Yemen, Syria and Libya in fear of bombs and bullets, of injury and
death.

“None of this is inevitable. We pride
ourselves on being a compassionate nation.

“My Christmas wish is that we all do
more to help bring about the kind of society and world we want to live in.

“Whenever you can show people love,
show them you care and enjoy your Christmas.”
