Labour Council Try to Evict Squatters Led By Corbyn’s Brother


Readers will remember Piers Corbyn, Jeremy’s climate change-denying former Communist brother. What’s he up to these days? Lawyers for Labour-run Camden council have been called in to try to evict a group of dreadlocked hippie squatters from a council building, run by Piers. He was a squatters’ rights leader in the 1970s and declares: “I’m supporting this occupation!” In a bizarre twist, he has the backing of Downton Abbey’s bushy-eyebrowed butler Carson, real name Jim Carter. So a Labour council is taking legal action against their leader’s brother and his mates. Another Labour split!

Quote of the Day

Responding to Corbyn’s statement that the US should have arrested ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi, John Mann bluntly tweeted:

Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide belt. An arrest might have been slightly difficult in these circumstances.”
