Corbyn Lies: “I never met the IRA”

On May 26th  Jeremy Corbyn told Andrew Neil in an interview: “I never met the IRA”

In 1984, two weeks after the Brighton bombing, Corbyn invited two members of the Provisional IRA, Linda Quigley and Gerard McLoughlin, to parliament. MacLochlainn was a close friend of Corbyn.

In 1981 he served two and a half years in jail for conspiracy to cause explosions.

According to a report in the Sinn Fein/IRA newspaper An Phoblacht, in 2000 Corbyn shared a platform with Brendan McKenna at an event commemorating Bloody Sunday.

McKenna was jailed for his role in bombing the British Legion hall in Portadown. 

In 2005 Corbyn shared a platform with Raymond McCartney at a meeting about Bloody Sunday.

McCartney was a member of the Provisional IRA.

In 2007 Corbyn spoke alongside Martina Anderson at an event organised by his CLP.

Anderson was jailed for plotting a series of terror attacks in London and twelve English seaside towns. 

In 2009, an An Phoblacht report places Corbyn at a Sinn Fein dinner with Diane Abbott and Ken Livingstone. The event was hosted by Gerry Adams and IRA member Gerry Kelly

Kelly was jailed for his part in the Old Bailey bombing which killed one and injured 200.

In July 2011, Jeremy Corbyn chaired a Sinn Fein event commemorating the Hunger Strikes. An Phoblacht says Corbyn shared a platform there with the IRA member Brendan ‘Bik’ McFarlane, who was a part of an IRA gang which killed four Protestant civilians and a UVF member in a pub bombing.

Also present was Jennifer McCann, who was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment for the murder of a RUC constable. 

A demonstrable lie from Jezza…

Corbyn was of no consequence to the Irish peace process and his attitude, demeanour under questions shows that he has no regard at all for what is right or wrong. Either morally or politically.

There can be no peace process or dialogue with ISIS. yet he seems to imply this in his usual vague manner of speech. He is never direct at all. He even lied about seats on a train.

Corbyn is part of the establishment who has been an MP for decades drawing a generous salary to fund his attendance at rallies, usually against his own government

He pretends to care about the poor. but is really more interested in an ideological war than in supporting the people he purports to champion.

    It is now clear this site is avoiding parish issues I wonder why

    I think most people perceive Jeremy Corbyn as a well intentioned buffoon.
    I believe he means well but I have great respect for the corrosive influence of bias,systematic distortions of thought, the power of rationalization, the guises of self interest, and the inevitability of unintended consequences.
    Anyone who clings to views they held thirty years ago cannot possibly formulate policies to ensure Britain faces forward and goes forward. He seems oddly fixed in the concepts and rhetoric of the 1970’s.

    Democracy needs a strong voice to challenge and sometimes oppose the governing party’s political programme. In today’s Britain Corbyn cannot and does not provide that challenge.or strong opposition.
    No doubt he and his supporters will blame the ‘media’ and ‘right wing press’ for his failure to be elected PM instead of examining and understanding why he and they failed.

    The last four blogs on APCW have been attacking the Labour party and its local MP and leader. It seems very strange to me that no one has bothered to come on here to defend them. Is this because readers don’t see the need to defend, as Labour are going to win the Rother Valley seat as a matter of course IE because they always do, or is it because they can’t defend the indefencible? Of course it could also be the situation where 66% of you want to vote Labour but also want out of the EU. Well you can’t have both. Time is running out for you to decide. A vote for Barron is a vote for Corbyn and a wave goodbye to for an independent Great Britain, FOREVER. This is a once in your lifetime vote. Vote anything but Labour this time. Use your loaf, you can vote Labour again in five years. You will not get the opportunity to vote for your countries freedom from German rule again. EVER.

      I wouldn’t normally publish news concerning General Elections but I do not think Jeremy Corbyn is the right person to lead the Labour party at this time. His previous parliamentary history is only distinguished by his votes against the last Labour government, other than that he is a nonentity.
      How do we know that he or Diane Abbott were not recruited by the East German Stasi during one of their trips to East Germany in the ’70’s? Their speeches and behaviour are not consistent with people who want the best for Britain.
      Electors have a choice and must live with the decision they make at the ballot box.
