Jeremy Corbyn made an appearance at Bongo’s Bingo in Liverpool on Monday, telling the crowd he was “ready” for a general election.

The Labour leader even called some numbers at the event, and told attendees: “I don't know when an election will come, but all I'll say to you is this: an election that comes, that we force them into as soon as maybe, we're ready for it. I'm ready for it, you're ready for it.”

It wasn’t the first time the bingo event, which is held at the Camp and Furnace venue, has played host to Corbyn’s supporters.

Liverpool Walton CLP posted a video on YouTube in May (above) showing the crowd breaking out into the ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn’ chant - although the Labour leader wasn’t there on that occasion.

Corbyn will make a speech to close the Labour Party conference today.

He will denounce “greed is good” capitalism and promote a new economy based on green energy.

He will talk about the “threat facing humanity” that is climate change, and announce plans to extend free childcare beyond 30 hours a week.

Yesterday, Labour passed a motion saying that the option of a referendum on the final Brexit deal should be left open, but Corbyn’s preference is to call a general election.

MP Laura Smith called for a “general strike” to bring down the Conservative government.
