Yesterday, the SKWAWKBOX shared a video of Jeremy Corbyn’s angry reaction when Tories tried to disrupt his response to Hapless Hammond’s Budget. But Corbyn was not angry at being interrupted – he was livid at the Tories’ callous dismissiveness toward vulnerable people.
That video went viral, with an avalanche of comments from supporters welcoming Corbyn’s fire.
But Facebook user Lell Gee made a comment that shed a bright light on the significance of Corbyn’s reaction:
Corbyn faced lies, slurs, insults, mockery of his clothes and worse from the Tory benches. From right-wing Labour MPs not fit to represent their members, he faced lies, disloyalty, smears, briefing, undermining and an attempt to crush him.
And he didn’t lose his temper once – or even appear close.
But when Tories sneer and dismiss the vulnerable, the put-upon and those discarded by this consciously-cruel government? Then this ensues:
This is what the UK is crying out for in its leaders – and why Corbyn has the stature and character to be fit for leadership.
