Far more interesting than Labour’s eye-watering £48.6 billion tax hike was the manner in which the manifesto launch for the People’s Republic of Corbyn turned into a rather twisted rendition of ‘fake news’ bingo.
After Laura Kuenssberg was vibrantly heckled, Corbyn only invited written press questions from the very representative Morning Star and Daily Mirror. While the former received applause for ranting against the “shockingly biased media”, even the Mirror couldn’t escape the ire of Corbyn’s loyal followers after saying that his ‘popular’ policies were being ruined by his poor leadership. The man from the Mirror was duly booed.
This came on the same day that the woman hoping to be our next Home Secretary (yes, one D. Abbott) was found to have signed a petition in 1989 calling MI5 and Special Branch “conspiratorial groups” that needed to be scrapped as they were “not accountable to the British people”.
We wonder if Corbyn’s caterwauling crew regret the absence of a new Pravda in his manifesto.
