Final night of Labour’s conference in Brighton

  • Corbyn himself led the celebrations of the party’s annual conference in Brighton 
  • The teetotal party leader was joined by senior members of his shadow cabinet 
  • The boozy party came just a day after top MPs embraced the ‘Diversity Nite’ bash

Jeremy Corbyn and his top team last night cut loose at the final party of the Labour conference in Brighton.

A boozy karaoke party hosted by the Daily Mirror ran late into the night and was graced by Mr Corbyn, his deputy Tom Watson and senior shadow ministers Emily Thornberry.

The party finally broke up at around 3am – just hours before Mr Corbyn was due at the podium for his main speech.  

The raucous party capped Mr Corbyn’s most successful conference as leader which despite seeing a bitter anti-Semitism row has seen him consolidate his position.

Labour’s top names were out and about for a second night running after gracing the wild ‘Diversity Nite’ party hosted by controversial MP Keith Vaz on Saturday.

Mr Corbyn addressed last night’s party in Brighton despite needing to prepare for his main speech as leader this afternoon.

His appearance will anger some after he sent his apologies to a Labour Friends of Israel fringe meeting at which he could have condemned anti-Semitic remarks by activists.

Trade union chiefs, including TUC leader Frances O’Grady performed Sweet Caroline. 

Activists even danced to the Blair-era Labour anthem of Things Can Only Get Better.
