Jeremy Corbyn stated that he denounced all the bombardment by the loyalists and the IRA. Nevertheless, Labour has criticised the Conservatives of creating false news following a Tory attack video that went viral and was edited to show Jeremy Corbyn refusing to condemn the IRA.
The Conservatives are further paying Facebook to incorporate in people’s news feeds, that on the 9th June, this man could be Prime Minister, and that they can’t let that happen. It has been all over Facebook, and the astonishing thing is that people believe what they are seeing.
This includes a snippet from Jeremy Corbyn’s appearance on Sky News last month when interviewer Sophy Ridge challenged him on if Jeremy could unequivocally rebuke the IRA. Jeremy Corbyn said that bombing is wrong and that he did condemn it.
But, Sophy Ridge stated that he was denouncing all bombardment, well duh, of course, he’s rebuking all bombardment, you wouldn’t censure and not the other. So what, some bombing is okay and another bombing is not?
Sophy then asked if Jeremy could denounce the IRA without analysing it, well why the Hades would he want to. He was simply affirming a truth, that he does not support any bombardment of any sort. It’s pretty straight forward if you ask me, but you didn’t, so I’m telling you!
A number of people who have viewed the film are similar to a televised party election broadcast audience, but since it is on Facebook it is not regulated by Ofcom, which can only consider complaints regarding the wrongful or improper handling of people or groups in TV party performances.
Facebook seems to have a lot of adverts that are being funded for by the Conservatives, that claim that Jeremy Corbyn wants to end Britain’s armed forces, but this is incorrect and the Labour manifesto vows to spend 2% of Gross domestic product (GDP) on defence and that they will ensure that our armed forces are properly equipped and resourced to respond to wide-ranging security challenges.
The Conservatives have been running an offensive attack based on distortions, suggestion and bogus news. They do this because they have nothing to give the British people and their super-rich benefactors, and they fear that Labour’s strategy to reconstruct Britain for the many, not the few.
Furthermore, the Conservatives have made no apology for bringing awareness to the fact that Jeremy Corbyn has given a lifetime siding with people who want to do Britain harm, and apparently would undermine our barriers and make our nation less secure.
Amongst the next most-viewed political videos was a Green party snippet showing co-leader Caroline Lucas asking the home secretary, Amber Rudd how she manages to sleeps at night.
Rows came as the principal parties cranked up their spending on Facebook advertising with only 4 days to go until the referendum.
Despite the Labour leader’s growing notoriety, the Conservatives are massively scapegoating Jeremy Corbyn with nine out of 10 of their adverts which are attacking him.
According to an investigation of 889 Facebook advertisements set by the three principal parties into the feeds of more than 8,000 voters, the information has been collected by the Who Targets Me project and examined by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
Jeremy Corbyn appears to be a leader who maintains our armed forces or one who wants to destroy them, however, this fraudulent claim may have originated from the Conservative’s offensive video which includes a snippet of Jeremy Corbyn declaring that he wants to destroy our army.
It was taken from a speech he delivered at a Campaign for a Nuclear Disarmament event in 2012. He announced it would be excellent if each politician around the globe, rather than taking enjoyment in the dimension of their armed forces, did what the people of Costa Rica had done and removed their troops and then took pride in the fact they didn’t have an artillery anymore.
A different publicly distributed Tory announcement asserted that putting Jeremy Corbyn in custody of Britain’s Brexit mediation, and our immigration policy, was too great a gamble to take.
The plan seems to display the large-scale strategy being used by Conservative-supporting newspapers of turning fire on Corbyn as polling day advances.
Labour, by contrast, is barely mentioning Theresa May in its social media warfare with just 9% of the 136 various advertisements viewed so far by Who Targets Me pointing to the prime minister.
The adverts that Labour is pushing hardest are not associated with policy but are asking people to get out and vote. The following most popular issues addressed in paid for advertisements by the party are the NHS and education fees.
The Conservatives are concentrating most on Brexit, the economy and defence, whilst the Liberal Democrats are utilising Facebook advertisements to talk about Brexit and dementia but further to solicit contributions.
As you observe poor Jeremy Corbyn. This peaceful, well-meaning person muttering away at almost total disregard, you sense a bit of desperate compassion.
They could at least have the respectability to roar a few taunts at him, rather that establishing it on Facebook, which is more than cowardly, and politically, an insult can be deemed some sort of compliment.
It implies that the target is, if not precisely an intimidation, then at least an adversary who they believe is worth keeping their focus on.
They did hesitate to cheer ironically when Jeremy Corbyn admitted that Britain did require powerful soldiers and defence units. But otherwise, he received little more recognition than a busker at rush hour.
Whilst everyone is in such a rush to make an assumption of poor Jeremy, don’t brew yourself into a frenzy. He is simply a human being like anybody else, there is nothing strange about this man. His face might look a tad overused but he appears to be from a newly harvested crop, and okay he’s not particularly subversive, but he’s an average chap, seeking to do the best for his people.
He might look a bit of a defeatist sometimes but match to the corrupt Cruella Theresa May, he’s a walk in the park on a spring day.
They say, better the devil you do know, than the devil you don’t, but I don’t agree when it comes to politics.
There are too many venomous rattlesnakes out there, and yes, Jeremy could be one of them, but I believe he unquestionably merits an opportunity – I mean, honestly, could he do any worse than Theresa May is doing to this country now?
It’s been a long time since we have had a genuinely worthy Prime Minister, and I truly suspect that if Jeremy Corbyn succeeds, that he will end up being one of those iconic Prime Ministers of our time.
