It will come as little surprise to find Jeremy Corbyn getting behind the Palestine march on Armistice Day. The former Labour leader posted a video to his social media accounts in which he called on supporters to attend this Saturday's controversial march.
Corbyn said: "This weekend, we're remembering all those that have died in all wars. It's Remembrance weekend and this weekend we'll be marching for a ceasefire in the dreadful conflict that's going on in Gaza, which has already claimed 10,000 lives. I'm going to be there and I hope you will be there too."
For a man whose links with Hamas go back more than a decade, it is no surprise to see him quoting their casualty figures, while ignoring the plight of Israeli victims. Needless to say, he doesn't trouble himself with poppy symbolism now that he is free of the responsibilities of Leader of the Opposition.
Corbyn also lashed out at Suella Braverman in a message posted via his 'Peace and Justice Project'.
