Brexit supporter who PUNCHED Jeremy Corbyn – he didn’t ‘egg’ the Labour leader – admits assault

Coming up (Labour) roses: Mr Corbyn kept smiling both before and after the ‘egg’ attack at the Muslim Welfare Centre in Finsbury Park.

Absolutely stunning: The mainstream media is still claiming that Jeremy Corbyn was attacked with an egg when he was punched in the head.

It undermines respect for the British news media.

The evidence was that Mr Corbyn was struck on the right side of his forehead and the culprit – named John Murphy – has admitted assault by beating.

It was not assault by beating an egg.

The Mirror‘s report of Mr Corbyn’s account is telling:

‘Mr Corbyn, who was largely uninjured but left with a red mark, noted Murphy’s face was “contorted” with rage and he appeared “very aggressive”.

‘In a victim impact statement read to court, the Labour leader said: “I was shocked and surprised when the assault occurred as I have always felt safe and secure at the Muslim Welfare House.

‘”The assault was completely unprovoked and threatening.

‘”Whilst I’m determined to make sure I’m able to interact with people as I always have, I now have to be more cautious.

‘”I feel these kinds of attacks drive a wedge between elected representatives and those who elected them in the first place. We are now reviewing and increasing my security protection.”‘

It seems an egg was involved, as Mr Corbyn had to wash it off, but this was a physical assault – not a prank with a food item.

Of course we know Theresa May has been stoking ill-feeling against MPs, encouraging attacks on our elected representatives.

This Site reported on the attack against Lloyd Russell-Moyle last week.

And Mrs May has been reported to the Metropolitan Police for inciting violence against MPs.

Strangely, though, if the violence is against Labour MPs, nobody in the media seems to want to mention it.

UPDATE: Murphy has been sentenced to 28 days in prison. The mainstream media is continuing to play down the attack, despite the discovery of online death threats by Murphy and others.

    The violence by right wing thugs against radical politicians is on the increase. Hopefully the sentence on this character who is up before the courts for assaulting Jeremy Corbyn will be sentenced in a way which reflects society’s repugnance for such people and violence.
