Corbyn Tries to Deflect From “Stupid Woman” Row With Lie About Westminster Death

Fresh from giving his less-than-convincing denials about whether he called Theresa May a “stupid woman” or not at PMQs yesterday, Corbyn has tried to deflect from the row by angrily telling the BBC this morning: “you and your colleagues in the media seem utterly obsessed with this. The fact that a homeless man died outside Parliament has got no coverage whatsoever, and it should.” This is simply not true.

In fact, as of this morning, the sad news had already been covered by the BBC, Sky, ITV, Guardian, Independent, Sun, Mirror, Mail, Metro, Evening Standard, HuffPost and more.

We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors. This world view might lead to a new and liberated social order; or it might lead to the social and spiritual destruction of our country. How shall we know, if we are too afraid to discuss it?”
