Corbyn defends Russia comments during Batley visit

JEREMY CORBYN has insisted there is “no equivocation” his attitude to Russia’s actions in Syria after criticism from the husband of former Batley and Spen MP Jo Cox.

Mr Corbyn defended Labour’s position as he visited the constituency to campaign in the by-election triggered by Mrs Cox’s death earlier this year.

    The main Parties decided not to contest the election in respect of Mrs Cox`s murder. So what does Jezza do, Scoot of up north for some cheap publicity, knowing full well there would not be any other Parties there. How low can you go.

    Quite right that the other parties decided not to contest the by-election. It would be good practice not to do so when an MP has been murdered so that any politically motivated assassin would know their actions would not affect the democratic balance of the Commons.

    Mr. Corbyn has to throw it back in their faces of course. And his Party picks a candidate who regularly appears on our TV screens advertising funeral plans! Where is Sigmund Freud when you need him?
