With less than a month to go until votes are cast in the U.K. general election, leader of the Labour party Jeremy Corbyn met with grime MC JME in a bid to encourage young people to register and vote on Sunday, May 14.
The leader of the Labour party shared footage of his time with the Boy Better Know MC on Snapchat with JME saying, "Hi, it's JME, Boy Better Know. I'm on Jeremy's Snapchat to make sure you register to vote." Another snap described the pair discussing “music, education, and art.”
On Twitter, JME said that he took the time with Corbyn to explain "why bare of us don't vote." He later shared what he had learned from his time with the leader of the opposition.
