Corbyn forced into u-turn on terrorism by his own party

Jeremy Corbyn is a terrorist enabler and friend to them as well. He is on record as complaining that it was wrong to kill Jihadi John and the UK should have arrested him for a fair trial.

Just two days ago he was declaring that the Police must not shoot to kill suspected terrorists, claiming shoot to kill is ‘dangerous, counter-productive’.

Now his front bench have defied him forcing a u-turn.

Jeremy Corbyn was humiliated in the Commons today as his own MPs lined up to condemn him and his supporters as apologists for terrorists.

The Labour leader was left isolated on the frontbench as MPs rushed to praise David Cameron’s response to the Paris attacks.

Senior Labour backbenchers including Chuka Umunna, Emma Reynolds and Ian Austin took swipes at their leader over an interview in which he opposed police shooting to kill terrorists and his links to a group which said western intervention in the Middle East was to blame for the atrocity in the French capital.

The Labour leader sparked a furious row last night after saying he was ‘not happy’ about armed officers and special forces having an order to kill fanatics to bring an atrocity to an end.

He also suggested that part of the responsibility for the Paris attacks lies with Britain’s military interventions in the Middle East.

‘We have created a situation where some of these forces have grown,’ he told the BBC yesterday.

It comes amid a growing row over plans for the Labour leader to be the star turn at a Christmas fundraiser for the Stop The War coalition which claimed on Saturday that Paris ‘reaps the whirlwind of western support for extremist violence in Middle East’.

Corbyn is an unreconstituted Marxist and enabler of despots and terrorists, and his party is in an uproar.

Today David Cameron used a Commons statement to update MPs on the latest security situation and the outcome of talks at a G20 summit in Turkey.

But the exchanges were dominated by Labour MPs queuing up to agree with the Prime Minister in a series of barely-concealed attacks on Mr Corbyn.

In one of the most aggressive interventions, former minister Ian Austin looked at Mr Corbyn instead of the PM as he said: ‘I agree with everything the Prime Minister said about Syria and about terrorism.

‘Those that say Paris is reaping the whirlwind of western policy or who want to say Britain’s foreign policy has increased, not diminished, the risks to our own national security are not just absolving the terrorists of responsibility but risk fuelling the sense of grievance and resentment which can develop into extremism and terrorism.’

Pat McFadden, who is currently Mr Corbyn’s shadow Europe minister, said: ‘Can I ask the Prime Minister to reject the view that sees terrorist acts as always being a response or a reaction to what we in the West do?

‘Does he agree with me that such an approach risks infantilising the terrorists and treating them as children when the truth is they are adults entirely responsible for what they do.

‘No one forces them to kill innocent people in Paris or Beirut and unless we are clear about that we will fail even to be able to understand the threat we face let alone confront it and ultimately overcome it.’

Emma Reynolds, who quit as shadow communities secretary when Mr Corbyn won the leadership, said: ‘Full responsibility for the attacks in Paris lies solely with the terrorists and any attempt by any organisation to somehow blame the West or France’s military intervention in Syria is not only wrong, disgraceful, but also should be condemned.’

Chris Leslie, the former shadow chancellor, said: ‘The Prime Minister is right, the police and security services need our full support at this time.

‘Shouldn’t it be immediately obvious to everyone that the police need the full and necessary powers, including the proportionate use of lethal force if needs be, to keep our communities safe?’

Ilford South MP Mr Gapes said: ‘The Prime Minister’s content and tone spoke not just for the Government but for the country.’

Mr Corbyn was last night branded a ‘f***ing disgrace’ by one frontbencher after questioning whether armed officers could open fire on a terrorist to halt an attack’

Corbyn is being openly flouted as leader. His party is in disarray as the MOPs reject the choice of the party. The Labour Party will either split apart or they will knife Corbyn pretty soon.
