May announces tough sanctions on Jeremy Corbyn
THE prime minister has announced strict new sanctions against Jeremy Corbyn.
The Labour leader has had his Russian passport confiscated, has been banned from appearing on Russia Today and will not be allowed to attend the World Cup in Russia later this year.
Theresa May said: “We cannot prove that Corbyn was directly involved in the attempted murder of a Russian double-agent. But, let’s face it, it’s likely.
“An attempt to expel him from the country has failed, because Putin says he has plenty of useless old Commies and does not need another one, but his attempt to subvert the Tory-rules-based order must be met with a just response.”
Corbyn said: “Neither I, nor my beloved Russia, was involved in this Russian attack on a Russian spy using Russian weapons for which Russia was unfairly blamed.
“I would have been if I had been asked, however, and honestly after all I’ve done for them it breaks my heart that they didn’t.”
