Corbyn’s response goes instantly viral
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn gave a perfect demonstration this evening of the wit and humanity that the Tories – including Calamity Johnson – cannot hope to match and which has helped Labour make a storming start to its campaign.
When media announced that Sky’s broadband service had stopped working, Corbyn quickly retorted:
Corbyn was, of course, referring to Labour’s ground-breaking plan to provide free high-speed broadband across the nation by renationalising parts of BT Openreach – bringing genuine equality to modern communications and access to information that the Tories have denied to millions.
Corbyn’s tweet went instantly viral, shared thousands of times across social media in the first hour or so after its publication.
Labour’s genuine status as a popular movement with huge numbers of grassroots activists rightly terrifies the Tories.
