CLUELESS LABOUR LEADER JEREMY CORBYN SLAMMED AS HE IS FACING A FURIOUS BACKLASH OVER HIS 'APPALL
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is facing a furious backlash over his shameful bid to exploit the Manchester nail-bombing today by blaming Britain's foreign policy.
He delivered a highly insensitive and controversial speech in which he claimed that Britain's foreign policy has 'fuelled terrorism'.
But his lack of judgement drew an angry response, with security minister Ben Wallace branding the timing - just four days after 22 were killed in the suicide bomb and with people still being treated in hospital - 'appalling'.
He stated that terror attacks by Islamist extremists long pre-dated campaigns in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria.
Labour politicians also openly agreed that the speech was 'badly timed' and muddle-headed.
