Corbyn and Watson Accused of Taking Sandwiches Meant For Veterans

According to respected photographer Steve Back (@PoliticalPics), Jeremy Corbyn took two free lunch packs meant for veterans at today’s Battle of Britain event at St Paul’s. Back was on the scene, and snapped Corbyn taking not one but two free Costa coffee lunch bags:

Back tells Guido:

“Jeremy and Watson went straight over, they went rushing towards where the free packs were, and dived in. He was obviously rushing off to the TUC and he grabbed two of these bags. They were for the veterans and the volunteers in the red jackets. Jeremy was looking inside them and picking up the sandwiches he wanted. Tom Watson only took one and so did everybody, all the veterans, but Jeremy took two, which I thought was really off.”

Don’t think they were meant for Tom and Jerry somehow…

UPDATE: A new photo clearly shows the volunteers offering Tom and Jerry the lunch bags:

Kerry Parkin, Costa’s spin-doctor, confirms: “The bags were available to veterans and guests at the service”. Guido apologises to Mr Corbyn and Mr Watson for any embarrassment caused by our eye-witness based report.

Quote of the Day

Emily Thornberry tells Labour activists some home truths…

“…we must all acknowledge, that there are sickening individuals on the fringes of our movement, who use our legitimate support for Palestine as a cloak and a cover for their despicable hatred of Jewish people, and their desire to see Israel destroyed.”
