Lots of people moaning about Rachel Riley pointing out Corbyn is a tw*t
Usually the same people who will happily and loudly call Boris (indeed any Tory supporter) a fascist!
They seem to be calling her out for photoshopping a photograph and wearing it on a T Shirt, the images was of Corbyn on an Anti Apartheid march but she changed the copy on the placard he was holding.

In this instance I think RR was rightly called out for this but she seems to just be doubling down on the matter.

Perhaps Corbyn's role in defeating apartheid wasn't quite as big as he claims

She did it to make a political point - the point that she is worried that an anti-Jewish racist might become PM. It's a fair point to make, I think.

Thats behind a paywall. Wasnt it something like 8 months after Thatcher criticised SA apartheid he got "arrested". Not something the left remind us of... that everyomen said it was bad, not just Corbyn. But the Consrervaties did things properly and through democratic means. Like always...
