The new Labour leader faced heavy criticism for standing in silence while God Save the Queen was played during a Battle of Britain remembrance ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral attended by the Prime Minister, Defence Secretary and scores of military leaders.
Former military commanders as well as Labour and Tory MPs said he was “dishonourable” for refusing to sing the national anthem.
Mr Corbyn later insisted that he “stood in respectful silence” during the remembrance ceremony.
Well, obviously, they would. And there’s, among Jezzbollah, plenty who would applaud such a stance of sticking it to The Man.
But it wasn’t just The Sun which played up Foot’s donkey jacket at the Cenotaph, was it? Didn’t go down well woih working class England, let alone Middle, did it?
