Right-wing rags have been desperately peddling the innuendo that Jeremy Corbyn might have done something bad by ‘failing’ to declare his 2014 trip to Tunisia – already the subject of increasingly-desperate and ineffective smears about wreaths and standing next to people – in the register of MPs’ interests.
The smear runs something like, “If Corbyn needed to declare it and didn’t, then he should have!”
Senior sources in the Labour Party tell the SKWAWKBOX that the answer is as simple as could be: the value of the visit was below the threshold for declaration. Another smear bites the dust.
