Reports have been circulating of an attempted ‘egging’ of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. The SKWAWKBOX can confirm that the incident was an attempted punch, not merely an attempt to throw an egg.
A Labour source told the SKWAWKBOX:
It was an attempt to punch him in the face not just egg him, but thank God little contact was made. Jeremy was shaken but not injured.
The incident took place at the Finsbury Park Mosque – the same mosque attacked by right-wing terrorist Darren Osborne, who admitted he had hoped to kill Corbyn.
One Twitter user locked his feed after being reported for saying he wished the egg had been a bullet:
Last year an attack by a terrorist who hoped to kill Jeremy Corbyn and today a physical attack on him by a right-winger while others wish for worse – a glimpse of the potential consequences of the shamelessly biased and constantly escalating media campaign against Labour’s leader?
