ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER ANTI-CORBYN STORY!
By Aran MacDermott
Since last September when Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour party by the largest percentage of votes in the party’s history.
The Left-wing mainstream Newspapers the Guardian and Daily Mirror have been luke warm at best towards Jeremy Corbyn and his mandate from Labour members to move the direction of the party back to its roots, to be more democratic and move away from the ideas of ‘New’ Labour.
Last month, in the aftermath and chaos of the UK public voting to leave the EU.’New’ Labour MP’s seized their moment to try and trigger a coup against Mr Corbyn. He caught wind of the plot and sacked the ring leader Hilary Benn.
We all know what followed Shadow Cabinet Ministers resigning, 172 MP’s voting for a motion of no confidence in the Leader, 10,000’s holding rallys across the Country in support of Corbyn, over 200,000 new members, Chilcot, the Trade Unions backing Corbyn and a Leadership challege..
So how have the two main left-wing newpapers in the Country, chosen to refect this historic battle for the soul of the Labour movement?
This was the Daily Mirror’s advice to Jeremy Corbyn last week…
Both The Guardian and Daily Mirror’s editorial line that ‘ Jeremy Corbyn should step down’ goes against their own research that shows their readership do not agree with them.
Today after weeks of inaction Angela Eagle is set to announce that she will force a Leadership race with or maybe without Jeremy Corbyn on the ballot paper.
Here is how Today’s Guardian ‘report’ it..
And Daily Mirror
