Wally of the Week: Jeremy Corbyn MP

Section:

Labour’s leader Jeremy Corbyn should have behaved better on Remembrance Sunday; and now he should now retract his nonsensical remarks about Trident

 

It started off well for Jeremy Corbyn. He put on a red poppy (instead of the white one he normally sports) and didn’t snub Sunday’s Remembrance Sunday parade but in barely nodding as he laid a wreath and then attacking General Sir Nicholas Houghton over his sensible comments about Labour undermining the military, he made an utter fool of himself.

Jeremy Corbyn MP should have been a little more respectful on Sunday

 

The Labour leader – who has condemned Trident as a “weapon of mass destruction” – has to accept that though he might be the head of a political party, his knowledge of military matters is almost zilch. Sir Nicholas, on the other hand, is a vastly respected military figure and his comment that: “The purpose of the deterrent is you don’t have to use it because you successfully deter” sums up the reality of how Britain should use its nuclear capability perfectly.

 

Given Sir Nicholas was even backed by Labour’s shadow defence secretary Maria Eagle also, it is not just his political opponents who think Jeremy Corbyn has got this one wrong. Though he has a right to his anti-war views, this crypto-Communist should look to the politicians who’ve ignored the military in history and led this country into the quagmire of unnecessary defeats and on that basis alone he ought to retract his nonsensical comments. Sadly, we know he won’t and for that reason Jeremy Corbyn is our most worthy Wally of the Week.

    1. Whilst I will never vote for him, I am most interested to see such an intransigent person bearing high rank – but hopefully not a higher rank in politics

      I am not being facetious or sarcastic, and I think that Her Majesty would have had time for him had he made Prime Minister

      He is a rara avis, and I have never encountered his equal this high up the slippery pole of politics

    2. Sir Nicholas, as a ‘Military Head’ is meant to stay ‘neutral’ on Defense Matters’. Unless of course he is thinking of having a ‘Military Coup’, this doing away with democracy, and having the UK run by a ‘Military Junta’, as seen in Greece, Argentina, and Nazi Germany?

      If Sir Nicholas is t be thinking of a Military Government for the UK, then I suggest that he has ‘Committed Treason’ which is still a hanging offence in the UK.

      • The Queen would never allow it. Maybe he’s just voicing his fears over dropping Trident, as the head of military, considering that’s his job?
