The editorial board of a hard-Left magazine, of which Mr Corbyn was a member, wrote an article praising the Brighton bombing. In its article on the IRA attack, which almost wiped out Margaret Thatcher’s Cabinet, the editorial board of London Labour Briefing said the atrocity showed that “the British only sit up and take notice [of Ireland] when they are bombed into it.”
According to an authoritative parliamentary reference work, Mr Corbyn was general secretary of the editorial board. He wrote the front-page story in the same issue of Briefing.
The same edition of Briefing, for December 1984, carried a reader’s letter praising the “audacity” of the IRA attack and stating: “What do you call four dead Tories? A start.”
It mocked Norman, now Lord, Tebbit, the trade secretary who was dug out of the rubble of the Grand Hotel, saying: “Try riding your bike now, Norman.”

Callous, uncaring, evil? that’s Corbyn and his mob.

There is a big difference to inviting the terrorist to discuss peace and backing the terrorist against his own people. Corbyn has always taken the anti-British side in every argument.

It is obvious you are not having the wool pulled over your eyes as some blinkered posters are.

For what it's worth I'd say Prof. Sir Scruton speaks the truth all right. Brave man, speaking out against a mogul like that.

Who cares if he's Jewish, it has nothing to do with it, and he should stop using it as leverage. The Soros empire has a finger in every pie. Including Brexit, he's a strong advocate of the EU. I doubt anyone can match his financial weight to keep us in.

Goodness, there's a vociferous desperation on here to perpetuate the Corbyn smearing to the point of fanatical.

I haven't enough hours in a day, or even motivation to challenge such tripe put out by journalists who have a lot to fear if Labour gets in.

I'm just glad there's a lot of support to getting rid of this Tory menagerie causing far more death and destruction in peoples lives, whoever ends up in charge.

JustLyn. It must be more of a general dislike of Jeremy Corbyn as it seems the journalists you mention are from Labour, Conservative and independent media over many years.

After resigning from the BBC, Gilligan was offered a job at The Spectator by its editor, Boris Johnson, who had been a key supporter of Gilligan during the Hutton Inquiry

Between 2007 and 2009 Gilligan presented a fortnightly programme for Press TV, the Iranian government's English-language TV channel

In January 2013, Gilligan was appointed as the Cycling Commissioner for London by the Mayor, Boris Johnson. Accusations of "cronyism" were made following the appointment as Gilligan was considered instrumental in toppling the Mayor's main rival Ken Livingstone

Lord Tebbit, whose wife, Margaret, was permanently crippled by the Brighton bomb, said: "It’s hard to think how Corbyn could sink any lower. It’s the classic definition of the snake’s belly. He betrays his hatred of democracy and his love of violence, which survives to this day.”
Nigel Dodds, the Democratic Unionist MP for North Belfast, said: “Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell speak about honest politics and straight talking, but they should stop trying to pretend and tell lies that they were pro-peace. They were pro-terrorism. They were enemies of the peace process. They had a clear choice between the IRA and peaceful nationalism and they chose the IRA.”

Corbyn cannot hide his betrayal of the British people

What did "peaceful nationalizm" bring Republicans and non-Prots in "N Ireland"?

The "Potato famine" (about one million people died and a million more emigrated, it was the greatest loss of life in 19th-century Europe) WikiP

Gerrymandered electoral constituencies

The "B" Specials

Massive unemployment

Dickensian housing conditions

(Allegedly) Shooting dead by criminal Paras

Diplock Courts

Internment without trial

Refused entry on Electoral Registers

Concrete blocks dropped on your peaceful march by Prot thugs, lead by the Rev. Dr Paisley, as the 99.95% Prot., armed as usual, Royal Ulster Constabulary, looked on and did nothing.

Between 1986 and 1992, Mr Corbyn attended and spoke each year at the annual “Connolly/Sands” commemoration in London to honour dead IRA terrorists and support imprisoned IRA “prisoners of war.”
Programmes for the events have been obtained by the Telegraph.
The programme for the 1987 event, on May 16 of that year, praises the “soldiers of the IRA,” saying: “We are proud of our people and the revolutionaries who are an integral part of that people.”
The programme for the 1988 event, on May 8 of that year, states that “in this, the conclusive phase in the war to rid Ireland of the scourge of British imperialism… force of arms is the only method capable of bringing this about.”
The event took place the day after the funerals of the service personnel killed by the IRA in the Netherlands.
Each programme includes a list of IRA “prisoners of war” who are to be honoured that year, including the Brighton bomber, Patrick Magee, and sectarian murderers.
The lists include their prisons and birthdays, with IRA supporters in the UK encouraged to send them birthday cards in jail.
Mr Corbyn typically spoke alongside senior figures from Sinn Fein, including Gerry Adams at the 1991 event, at which he attacked “British imperialism” and praised Bobby Sands, the IRA terrorist who died on hunger-strike.

Corbyn. I wouldn’t want anything to do with despicable man

Phew. What a relief.
And there's me thinking that all the smearing and vilification of Mr Corbyn, me and any others who dared challenge your herd that you support was meant by those who wrote it.

When in fact, from your Presidential chair you announce on their behalf, after deep and meaningful discussions, that all this long thread has been an elaborate HOAX.

That what seemed to be genuine, but misguided, expressions of blind hatred of Mr Corbyn and those who wrote on this thread even ever so slightly agreeing with his philosophy, were really just made up, not believed, untruths, posted as some very late "April Fool" Wind up.

Great will be your welcome when your (former) colleagues read that you, Gilp, have outed them as Pranksters, Liars, Deceivers, and purveyors of falsified evidence

Whilst I at least respected that they wrote what they believed

Perhaps you'll now change your name to JUDAS?

Interesting thread. The original post asking if soldiers should use a photo for target practise appears to confirm that it is a bit naughty, has always gone on, not ok if the target is to the left of politics. It is quite obvious why anyone defending our country would find Corbyn detestible and the chosen target out of the many targets available.
The rather monotonous Corbyn-bashing posts are news items which have been published and are far too plentiful to not be correct. Even the Corbyn fans can only attempt to water down the accusations but not deny them.
One poster does seem to have been wound up and has took to blithering with frustration.
It is quite obvious to me that Corbyn should not be a leading figure in British politics and is a danger to our security, our economy and our general wellbeing. I fear his politics.
