Jeremy Corbyn criticised the media for not reporting on a parish by-election. Stig Abell's incredulous response is brilliant.
Stig reacted to Jeremy Corbyn's complaint that the media had not covered a parish by-election in Kent.
"Why did the mainstream media not cover a parish election?" asked Stig."It's a parish by-election! It's a parish by-election!
"How many parish by-elections do the mainsteam media cover?"
"Is it because they had it out to get Jeremy Corbyn because the establishment is all in a shadowy room gathering together to stop this man from tackling the legitimate abuses therein?
"Or because it's a parish by-election involving 500 people?"
"He says this because his supporters will then go: 'Yeah, it’s the media's fault' and they don't face reality.
"They don't face reality that they are pushing the Labour party into a place where they can't stop the Tories getting up to no good.
"They can't deal with the problems of inequality in this country because they're too busy with navel-gazing, tinfoil hat wearing, full blown paranoia."
