Lefty Lunacy: Not even the Daily Mirror escapes the Corbynite ire

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.

    Diane Abacus – she can’t add up on her own

    • Bob Marshall

      They’re all very good at taking away, though …

      • Sheik Rhat el Anrhol

        Very good

    • PAD

      Thumbs up and very funny!

  • guestwho2

    Are they policies, popular or otherwise, if they are mere proposals and ideas from the current and future minority party?

  • Paul Robson

    A bit hard on Diane Abbott. Given she can’t add up, why do you assume she can read ?

  • Jethro Asquith

    I read that the Labour policies individually are popular with the public but the Labour party are not. Does this not make them populists? A term they like to use to disparage others with.

  • Dominic Stockford

    The scrapping of MI5 was in the draft manifesto, is it in the full version or was that taken out?

  • The USA once shut down its intelligence services, on the principle that gentlemen do not read other people’s letters. They decided to re-open them after being caught by surprise by a little incident at Pearl Harbor.
