Liverpool Labour MP Ian Byrne has reminisced this evening about the contribution made to the ‘Fans Supporting Foodbanks’ charity – in northern city Liverpool – by Jeremy Corbyn and his team at Christmas when Corbyn was Labour leader.
Byrne was responding to a tweet by the @ToryFibs Twitter account and noted that a car boot packed with food was the donation delivered to Liverpool by the then-LOTO team:
But the food delivery to Liverpool was just one of several provided at the same time by Corbyn and his staff – donated, collected and delivered at their own time and expense. Others went to food banks around London.
So far in the run-up to this Christmas, the SKWAWKBOX is unaware of any indication that Corbyn’s and his team’s successors have done – or have plans to do – anything similar.
