Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s main event of May 12 was a speech at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, commonly known as Chatham House, where he laid out Labour’s plans for foreign and defence policy.

Needless to say, Tories have already tried to rubbish it. Boris Johnson has already said Mr Corbyn would “chuck away” the UK’s ability to defend itself.

Really? With, for example, a plan for a like-for-like replacement of Trident? And are we really going to accept criticism on foreign policy from BoJo the International Clown?

Tory candidate James Cleverly tried to suggest the Labour leader’s manifesto policies are fake and he would go back to (what the Tory press say are) his real beliefs if elected.

What did that legendary political commentator, Bono from U2, have to say about this sort of thing? “It’s no secret that a liar won’t believe anyone else”? I think Mr Cleverly has said more about himself than Mr Corbyn.

This clip is also illuminating, as it shows some of Mrs May’s other traits, alongside her penchant for holding hands with dangerous foreign leaders:

Mrs May was set to make a speech today, attacking Mr Corbyn and calling on “patriotic” Britons to support her.

Is there anything patriotic about kowtowing to the biggest bully on the planet? I don’t think so.

Is there anything patriotic about giving a big tax cut to big corporations for no reason? No.

But let us do as she asks, and make the real patriotic choice.

Let’s vote Labour on June 8.
