Jeremy Corbyn questions why Britain commemorates the First World War In light of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele, footage of Jeremy Corbyn questioning why Britain remembers the fallen soldiers of WW1 has come to light In a video uploaded to YouTube by the Communist Party in April 2013, Mr Corbyn is seen questioning why the country was spending so much remembering the conflict. “Next year, the government is apparently proposing to spend shedloads of money commemorating the First World War,” he said. “I’m not quite sure what there is to commemorate about the First World War, other than the mass slaughter of millions of young men and women – mainly men – on the Western Front and all the other places. It was a war of the declining empires.” I think it’s fair to say that this confirms that Mr Corbyn, the leader of the Labour party, feels little sympathy to those who lost their life in WW1. If he did, why on earth would he even question the idea of not remembering the fallen? I can tell a lot of people will not be pleased with Mr Corbyns comments. What do you think about his comments? In my opinion, they are unacceptable for something who wants to be Prime Minister.
