ANGER as Jeremy Corbyn believes those who support ISIS should NOT be prosecuted

Jeremy Corbyn has come under pressure after his remarks made in a House of Commons debate were highlighted after the recent London attacks that killed 7 and injured 49

Mr Corbyn believes that supporting ISIS is a political view and should not result in prosecution.

Mr Corbyn said, according to records of parliamentary proceedings: “I have no support for ISIS whatsoever, and obviously that should apply to someone who has committed crimes, but we should bear in mind that expressing a political point of view is not in itself an offence.

“The commission of a criminal act is clearly a different matter, but expressing a point of view, even an unpalatable one, is sometimes quite important in a democracy.

“We should be slightly cautious about announcing that we will start to deal with people on the basis of a general view that they have expressed.”

The Labour leader then added that he had “no truck with those who commit those barbaric acts”.

He called on the Government to avoid the knee-jerk reaction of saying: “These are bad fighters and those are good fighters, so we will ban these and allow those in.”

He added: “We are living with the consequences of the war on terror of 2001, and if we continue to try to create legal obstacles and make value judgments about people without considering the overall policy we are following, we will return to legislation such as this, again and again, year after year.”

You have really got to asked yourself ‘is this the man I want to lead us in our hour of need?’

I think the vast majority of you will agree with me when I say that they would not feel safe with this man in charge. Rightly so.
