On Sunday, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn gave a short – less than 10 minutes – but towering speech that Sky News covered in full.
And the BBC covered not at all.
The speech is terrifying to the Establishment, because the statesmanlike Corbyn looks and sounds every inch the ‘Prime Minister in waiting’ that they’ve always told us he couldn’t be – and with his personal approval ratings now exceeding those of the Tory leader, it’s clear the country is recognising it.
In the speech, Corbyn stands tall and strong against terrorism, refuses to allow it to change him or cow the country. He holds May and her party to account for their actions that have made this country more vulnerable. He shows a genuine commitment to the safety and wellbeing of the people of the UK that dwarfs May’s and exposes it for a sham. He confirms that he will take any action necessary to protect us.
He challenges May and her party on its links with Saudi Arabia and its terror sponsorship.
And he does it all while promoting unity, not making noises about the end of civil freedoms, as May did in front of 10 Downing Street.
But Corbyn spoke from a position of strength, backed by a set of firm, costed manifesto policies for the security of our nation. May spoke from weakness, standing on a track record of cuts to police and our armed forces that a senior former police officer attacked unequivocally on TV this morning – also not covered by the BBC – as he called out May’s outright lies on police numbers.
Here are those policies:
