Corbyn Disrespects Service About Paying Respects By Paying Respects
Britain has just about had it up to here with Jeremy Corbyn and his nice-guy antics. It was enough that he’s an honest and quite nice politician, but the respect he showed for those who have fallen in wars on Remembrance Sunday was the last straw for millions across the UK.
Corbyn has been accused of politicising Remembrance Sunday by bowing his head to touch his knees but ‘accidentally’ missing his knees by just 2mm. David Cameron, on the other hand, bowed so low he touched the floor. Cameron commented, “This is just another example of Corbyn not wanting to conform to the high standards we have worked so hard to set in Britain. If Corbyn cannot bow so deeply that blind people can see the extent of his respect for those who have died for Britain, he is not fit to run the country!”
The Daily Mail has remarked ‘Everyone else did it. Two Sovereigns – who never normally do it – managed it perfectly well. So, too, did the Duke of Edinburgh – 95 next June – and the rest of the Royal Family.’ So why on earth could Jeremy Corbyn not touch his knees as he bowed? Flipside puts the agility of the Royal Family down to their devotion to yoga. This is exemplified by the Duke of Edinburgh – he and the Queen are said to work out at least five times a week! Prince George often joins them when he wakes up for his morning feed at 5am.
Corbyn added further fuel to the fire by leaving a message on the wreath that he laid at the Cenotaph on Sunday which read: ‘In memory of the fallen in all wars, let us resolve to create a world of peace.’ This heartfelt and inspirational message has rightly been criticised for being too patriotic and expecting too much of Britain as a traditionally warmongering nation.
The Daily Mail was additionally outraged that Corbyn did not let “veterans run the show” and instead decided to score points with voters by reading Wilfred Owen’s ‘Futility’. The publication called the poem, “a national shame, anti-patriotic, a damn right offence to national interest. HE PROBABLY ALSO HATES DIANA!”
