Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, last night described the allegations of historical sex attacks on children by Lord Greville Janner and the cavorting with rent boys by Labour colleague, Keith Vaz, as ‘ private matters of little consequence’
Janner died last year after a huge controversy over whether he should face trial for an astonishing 22 counts of sex offences against young boys carried out over decades.
The adulterous, three times married opposition leader was speaking to journalists about the scandal surrounding fellow Labour Party stalwart, Keith Vaz, who was exposed by a tabloid newspaper at the weekend following drink and drug-fuelled antics with male prostitutes.
“In my view, allegations such as these and those against Lord Janner, a well-respected and recently deceased colleague, are private matters of little consequence and little more than Zionist, Tory media-fuelled attacks against my leadership,” Corbyn said.
“I suggest we move on from this sort of scurrilous muck-raking and address more serious issues such as the recent move to the right in Cuba and overcrowding on trains. I had to sit on the floor in one the other day you know?”
Corbyn is due to address a rally of his supporters in Hull tonight where he is expected to pledge his support for working class serial rapists in Venezuela
