Paddy Ashdown Accuses Jeremy Corbyn Of “Reinforcing Isis’ Message”

26 May 2017, 16:41

Jeremy Corbyn has been accused of “reinforcing” the message of Isis after he linked Britain’s foreign policy to terror.

Paddy Ashdown joined a growing number of political opponents who criticised the Labour leader’s timing of the speech.

Mr Corbyn argued the “war on terror” was not working and pledged a government led by him would take a different approach that “fights rather than fuels terrorism”.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called the remarks, which come just days after the Manchester bombing, as "absolutely monstrous”.

Speaking on LBC, the former Liberal Democrat leader Lord Ashdown told Iain Dale: “To be saying this at this moment only gives sucker and support for [Isis’] reason to be doing this.

“I know he didn’t mean to do this… but to repeat the propaganda message used by Isil just at this time, whether he meant it or not, is a very irresponsible thing to do.”
