En route to Labour Live... Can’t say the punters seem to be flooding in by tube...
Jostling with the masses here as I make my way to the venue #LabourLive
Solid Remainiac presence at the gates #LabourLive
Must say the staff:attendee ratio at #LabourLive is a winning formula. Queue time approx 10 seconds.
As a vegetarian, I thought I’d be able to count on #LabourLive booking a falafel van... No heed paid either to Jay-C’s paean to salad (Kebab Awards 2016)
When in Rome... Cheers! 🍻 #LabourLive
A gender normative attitude toward loos at #LabourLive
Decent turnout for Barry Gardiner, Dawn Butler, Ian Lavery & Len McCluskey in the Solidarity Tent #LabourLive
Slightly less interest in Declan McKenna (no, me neither) heading up the Pyramid stage at #LabourLive.

He’s singing a jaunty tune: “Gonna kick those posh boys up the arse. You toffs, you can naff off back to Eton”
The Labour-branded teddy bears on sale at #LabourLive are made in China and sold wholesale in UK for £3 to £4.50... Ethically made? I’ve asked Labour (will tweet the answer).
The Literary Tent is popular at #LabourLive. “It’s like a socialist Hay festival,” enthuses one party aide. The talks & panels are rammed, the music stages much sparser.
A-listers gutted to be missing out as reports of #LabourLive spread
The Messiah has arrived! #LabourLive #Corbyn
McDonnell playing warm up act for Corbyn here at #LabourLive. “We have a dream”, he says, of a society that’s “radically more democratic”.
Headliner Corbyn finally arrives on the Pyramid stage at #LabourLive and launches into an Arundhati Roy quote: “Friends! Friends! Friends! To love, to be loved...”. Those near the front love massively excited, response where I’m standing a bit timer...
Good crowd now at #LabourLive. As of late afternoon, Labour sources said 13,000 of 20,000 tickets were nabbed.

Asked if that included freebies and “donated” passes, a Labour spokesman coughed: “It includes tickets arranged via an array of concessionary schemes.”
Corbyn was almost late to #LabourLive as he was working on his allotment today, according to insiders. His wife couldn’t get through to him on his mobile when the car turned up to his empty home, so she redirected it to collect him from him gardening activities.
Marc Wadsworth, who was expelled from Labour earlier this year following antisemitism allegations (which he denied), is at #LabourLive. He told me he has 24 Constituency Labour Parties backing his readmission and is considering his legal options, with £26k in a fighting fund.
