It's now quite clear how the left is spinning this non-story.  What was initially reported as an egg being squished on Corbyn's head has become a 'violent attack' in which the Labour leader was 'punched'.  This version of events was not reported by any media outlets yesterday, and indeed none of the witnesses quoted described a 'punch'.  However, this is the version now doing the rounds on Twitter, tweeted and retweeted to thousands by the likes of Owen Jones.

We've already demolished the 'punch' claims of Afua Hirsch and Diane Abbott (see previous post), now let's look at the above.

Miqdaad Versi, spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain, tweets an official press release from the Muslim Welfare House.  He strongly implies that the press release suggests Corbyn was "nearly knocked to the ground" by what was a "violent attack".  However, there is no such mention of this (or a punch) anywhere in the press release.  Seeing as the incident took place on their property, perhaps the people best placed to give an accurate description would be the Muslim Welfare House.

However, what is contained in the press release is the bizarre assertion that the egging was in some way linked to 'Islamophobia'.  No evidence is provided to back up this tenuous link!

Therein lies the problem.  Unlike the famed Prescott egging, there is reportedly no video footage of the Corbyn incident and Corbyn himself doesn't want to talk about it.  So, in the absence of any hard evidence the left (and their Islamist friends) have spun a web of lies to further their respective agendas.
