A clamorous applause greeted Jeremy Corbyn's closing speech at the Labour Conference in Brighton. And with very good reason.
Corbyn has been determined to prove his party is the one most in touch with the people and not only did he prove that yesterday (Wednesday) but he proved he is the 'leader-in-waiting'.
His speech read as the definitive guide to what this country needs to drag itself out of the quagmire it is currently in under the Tories and make it a place where the majority of society can thrive, not just the privileged few.
It is of course easy for the political party not in power to paint an idyllic picture of how they would run this country. But Jeremy's speech felt different. It wasn't simply the speech of the leader of the opposition party, it was the speech of a leader ready to step into the top job. It is Corbyn's time.
There are a number of reasons it feels like Jeremy is all set to be Britain's next Prime Minister – chiefly that history tells us so.
His political plan does not consist of just a few tweaks to the current status quo. Jeremy is calling for a complete overhaul of the political system. This is what Labour's Clement Attlee and Tory Margaret Thatcher both successfully called for before him.
But there was something else – a catalyst – which swayed the public away from a long reign of the opposing party. In Attlee's case he pledged to overturn a failed system which had brought about the Great Depression in the 1930's and a world war. Thatcher spoke out to voters with her claims politics had become a 'social ratchet' - her catalyst for change being a global oil crisis.
For Jeremy it is the failed attempt by the Conservatives to rectify the damage of the 2008 crash – his catalyst, the stark monument which is the burnt out Grenfell Tower.
Jeremy referred to the Grenfell Tower in Wednesday's speech in much the same way – in no uncertain words saying the tower stood as a 'tragic monument' of a society that prioritised profit over not only people's needs, but their lives.
Jeremy's political overhaul, though radical, is the common-sense argument after years of political bungling by the Tories. He is calling for an end to a country run by self-serving Conservative politicians pandering to the minority rich and big business. Instead Jeremy plans a 'new model of economic management' which will see an 'irreversible shift in the balance of power and wealth in favour of working people and their families'.
He is calling for a new wave of devolution – placing a far greater share of the power back in the hands of the people. Making public services accountable to communities, businesses accountable to the public and politicians accountable to who they serve.
No wonder Jeremy received such a rapturous applause. He has risen from oddball socialist politician winning the protest vote, to a strong leader we can count on to do what is best, and morally right, for this country.
To vote Tory is the equivalent of flushing your wage packet down the toilet each month unless you are in big business or a millionaire. If you are still in doubt, just look at the images of Grenfell Tower. That is what the Tories will do for you.
