The Mail has lurched straight from regurgitating year-old fake news as a ‘scoop’ to its most desperately bankrupt smear yet.
The smear in the rag’s Sunday edition is an accusation that Corbyn associated with someone four years before they allegedly did something that they denied doing anyway.
Author Alex Nunns summed up the nonsense of it perfectly:
You read that right. The Mail criticises Jeremy Corbyn for giving a speech at the wedding of someone who wasn’t to allegedly do something wrong for another four years – and even then denied the accusation.
Seems the Mail wants us to believe Corbyn is to blame for not being able to base his associations on things people haven’t done yet – or possibly at all.
There’s a word for this: desperation.
As the SKWAWKBOX showed last year, the Establishment has had one priority since the ‘Corbyn surge’ terrified it during last year’s general election: stop Corbyn.
And so unsuccessful have the Establishment and its media been so far that they are resorting to ever more ridiculous measures – measures that only end up giving the game away.
