Jeremy Corbyn Insists Far Right MUST Be Condemned

Jeremy Corbyn has told LBC that far right views must be condemned.
Donald Trump insisted there was blame "on both sides" following the death of a woman protesting against the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville.
Theresa May criticised the President, saying: "I see no equivalence between those who propound fascist views and those who oppose them.
"I think it is important for all those in positions of responsibility to condemn far-right views wherever we hear them."
And speaking to LBC's Theo Usherwood, Mr Corbyn was unequivocal.
He said: "The issue is a group of white supremacists, Klu Klux Klan supporters and Nazi descended on a town in order to promote racism and promote white supremacy in the United States.
"It's as if Jim Crow never happened.
"Surely those brave people who stood up against the colour bar, stood up against racism in the United States should be applauded for what they did and surely, it's the duty of every political leader to make sure you stand up against racism and intolerance wherever it raises it's head."
When Theo asked him whether the Prime Minister had done enough, Mr Corbyn responded: "We should all make it very very clear that we stand with those people who support a multi-cultural, multi-racial society in the USA, here or anywhere else in the world."
