Tory tweeter who compared Corbyn event with Nazi rallies is owned by anonymous Labour spokesperson

This is the way to put down a mouthy Tory keyboard warrior. Check out the Labour spokesman’s comment at the end of this extract:

A Conservative councillor has come under fire for a Twitter comment in which he compared the huge turnout at Jeremy Corbyn’s rallies with Nazi gatherings under Hitler.

Cllr Chris Steward, a former City of York Council leader, has been criticised, with a call for him to apologise, after he wrote the comment about popular rallies held by the Labour leader.

“You can judge mass attendance at rallies as the proof of a great leader if you want, I will judge their views,” he tweeted, alongside an image of a Nazi gathering.

A Labour spokesman [said]: “The fact that this Tory councillor thinks this is the appropriate reaction to a politician from another party being listened to, speaks volumes about why his party is not.”

    I rewatched part of the film Gandhi the other day – there is a scene where Gandhi arrives somewhere on the same train as a British official (travelling in 3rd class instead of 1st) and the Brits stand there wondering who the crowds are waiting for – maybe a better analogy than Hitler rallies if you’re looking for exaggerated historical references 😉

    Have there been rallies this summer? Nothing in the MSM about them if so. Quel surprise.
