LOL
There’ll be tears. These days, more so than ever before, the young are incredibly precious and deeply prone to upset.

Be interested to know how this photograph came to end up with the Sun.

As to the actual event then yes, Corbyn is an elected member of Parliament and as such you should expect better from him but even so, it is the story behind how the Sun got this scoop that is the interesting one.

Who does this benefit? Who stands to gain?

The leak is story here, not some silly dinner party with a couple of extra faces.

There is no suggestion the photo was taken other than by a guest

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

Meaning that this guest either provided the photograph themselves, which makes them a despicable arsehole in my opinon (I might loathe Corbyn but I do believe in the virtue of respecting peoples hospitality and pulling a stunt like that is a no-no in my world).

Or if they did not, somebody came into its possession and leaked it themselves. If it was just financial, then that is life. But who gains from this? As others have said, Corybn is yesterdays man.

For me the only person to gain from this is Starmer. He is fighting a battle within his own party with the Corbynite left and must be jumping for joy to see this picture.

As I have admitted, when it comes to politics I am an unashamed Geek and perhaps sometimes try to look for meaning and nuance when there is none but nothing in politics happens in a vaccum.

Part of me feels sorry for Corbyn. Looks like a complete stitch up.

Maybe someone put it up on their social media page? Seems everything ends up on there these days, and thus it's in the public domain.

Yup! But isn't it amazing that the wartime generation of children who were evacuated away from their family and friends, who had their education disrupted over 6 years and suffered the hardships of wartime and rationing, went on to be the generation that drove this country forward in terms of technology, medicine, science et al?

Now we have students crying because they've been locked in for 3 days and the toilet paper's running out!

Lets not be too harsh on Jeremy after all the didn't plan the numbers that was Diane Abbott .

He has apologised (not grovelling as the Sun said) it wasn't his party he was a guest so I say move on nothing to see here.

The picture was obviously taken by a guest and they probably posted it on social media without thinking.

As for Boris' dad if he has flouted the rules fine him.

Every generation “drives the country forward in terms of technology, medicine and science” - that’s the nature of advancement.

Possibly. Cannot see any claim about that in the article but more than happy to be corrected if I have missed something.

No less than you would expect from the arrogants

Certainly for the many not the few

It was clearly his last supper but times being what they are he found disciples a bit thin on the ground.

Eating out is so much fun now it is banned by the regime.

It feels exciting like you are plotting a revolution and you get your name in the media for just having a meal with friends.

Whatever happened to the good ole days:

A student bedsit a can of lager and a spliff plotting the revolution whilst trying to bed your fellow sympathisers.

Today its all tofu and vegan
