A Labour MP who criticised Jeremy Corbyn for “not paying respects properly” during a Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying ceremony has tweeted during the two-minute silence on Armistice Day.
Simon Danczuk, a persistent critic of the Labour leader, tweeted at exactly 11am on 11 November about going for a run in the hills around his constituency of Rochdale.
The Labour MP said he had meant to send the tweet earlier, however.
Rob Shuttleworth, of Sheffield, said: “If Jeremy had tweeted during the two minute silence you would have written an outraged article in the Mail.” Another, Stuart Gregory told the MP to “stay classy”.
