Jeremy Corbyn is in Leeds right now
He wants to bring back maintanence grants for students
The Labour Party leader was spotted at Leeds City College this morning, greeting Hilary Benn before announcing the Labour Party’s new education plans, in the run-up to the General Election, next month, on 8th June 2017.

The new education plans included a plan to invest over £5bn into English schools in the next 5 years.
He stated that, if he were to become Prime Minister, his plans would include: free school meals for all, EMA being brought back and maintenance grants for university students being reintroduced. Not only this, but he’s also announced that should Labour win, they will scrap tuition fees “once and for all”.
He was quoted saying “a highly skilled and confident workforce is a must have” and that he thinks that it is no surprise that 1/3 of the names on The Sunday Times rich list have given some dollar to the Tories. Classic Corbyn.

In a stark contrast to when Theresa May was in Leeds last week, people actually seem to care.
