A jubilant Jeremy Corbyn made his speech to the annual Labour conference today.

In addition to discussing housing, pledging to make everyone an organ donor, and mocking the Daily Mail, Mr. Corbyn also took the opportunity to poke some fun at his opponent Theresa May and the Conservative government.
