Opposition Disparaging the Monarchy?


For John, BLUFJust isn't done.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



In England the Labour Party has a new leader, Mr Jeremy Corbyn, and he likes to take interesting positions.  But, he ran afoul of the traditional political respect for the Queen, or at least an organization he heads did so.

From The Telegraph we have Mr Tim Ross, Senior Political Correspondent, reporting on "Jeremy Corbyn's 'shame' over Queen slur".  The sub-headline is "Labour leader forced to quit Stop the War Coalition after attack on Royal family".

Here is the lede plus one:

Jeremy Corbyn was under intense pressure last night after his peace movement published a “disgraceful” diatribe against the Queen.

A poem on the front page of the Stop the War Coalition website alleges that the Queen has a “criminal record” and is “lubricating Britain’s wars”, while the Royal family are arms dealers and “friends to despots and dictators”.

This should be an interesting ride.
