As Labour leader, Corbyn waved papers first published by the ‘Torygraph’. No matter how many lives he was trying to save and improve, there have to be limits
Last autumn, as the general election campaign heated up, the SKWAWKBOX can reveal that Jeremy Corbyn went to dangerous lengths in his quest to to unseat the Tory government.
In a dramatically-staged and televised conference, Corbyn flourished documents exposing the secrets of the Tories’ trade negotiations that they were desperate to keep from the eyes and minds of the UK electorate. But his use of those documents raises serious questions about interference in the democracy of this country, because the details of those trade discussions were first obtained by dark forces.
No. Not Russian hackers. Telegraph hacks.
The government has claimed this week that the papers were obtained by Russian hackers who conned the hapless former Trade Secretary Liam Fox into handing over his email password – and that this hack began on 12 July last year. But it is a matter of record that details of the leaked trade negotiations were in a certain right-wing newspaper two days before Fox’s supposed ‘phishing’ mishap, on 10 July last year:
Russian hackers? Meh. The Torygraph, though? There are some limits that should not be crossed.
By using information first obtained by by the right-wing press, Corbyn has surely consorted with those who signify only ill for this country.
So what if Corbyn was trying to save the more than four million UK children in poverty, save millions of working people from poverty and millions more of this nation’s vulnerable and exploited citizens and to rescue the NHS from being flogged off to Trump and co.
Using information from the Telegraph?! How will we ever forgive him?
