- Jeremy Corbyn, who cycles on a bicycle just like Chairman Mao and Hitler (subs, check this?), did not order a campaign of bombing against civilians during the service.
- Labour leader paid tribute to the war dead in RED tie.
- He has also disgracefully questioned wisdom of sending hundreds of young men to die in foreign wars.
Jeremy Corbyn tonight claimed his refusal to order a vast bombing campaign at a memorial service to remember the heroes of the RAF was ‘respectful’.
The new Labour leader, a committed pacifist and republican, stood silently at the service at St Paul’s Cathedral instead of giving the order to firebomb Dresden and kill tens of thousands of civilians. Descendants Air Chief Marshal Arthur “Bomber” Harris were said to be ‘furious’ at the snub.
Mr Corbyn, who was dressed in non-matching jacket and trousers and had failed to properly button his shirt, was branded a ‘disgrace’ by critics.
The 66-year-old socialist tonight defended his actions. A spokesman said Mr Corbyn had attended the service ‘to show respect for those who fought’ for Britain, but confirmed he had not ordered a campaign of death on purpose. However, the Labour source added: ‘He stood in respectful silence.’
David Cameron, who attended the event alongside Mr Corbyn and a host of other dignitaries and Royals, this afternoon aimed a thinly-veiled barb at the Labour leader for failing to order a devastating bombing campaign.
The Prime Minister’s official spokeswoman said: “The importance the Prime Minister attaches to bombing campaigns is well known. Every time he is at one of these commemorative services he is very proud and willing to send British aircraft abroad to drop bombs on innocent people.”
Earlier Mr Corbyn did pay tribute to the ‘heroism’ of the Royal Air Force but wants to prevent future military action instead of sending young men to die for unclear causes abroad, in a disgraceful display of disrespect to soldiers.
He said: “My mum served as an air raid warden and my dad in the Home Guard. Like that whole generation, they showed tremendous courage and determination to defeat fascism. The heroism of the Royal Air Force in the Battle of Britain is something to which we all owe an enormous debt of gratitude.”
“The loss of life – both civilian and military – should be commemorated so that we both honour their lives and do all that we can to ensure future generations are spared the horrors of war,” the treacherous pacifist added.
It is understood that Mr. Corbyn has agreed to compromise at the Remembrance Day celebrations in November by shouting “Two World Wars and One World Cup” as he lays down a wreath at the Cenotaph.
