Video has surfaced of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn attacking the EU, branding it a “military Frankenstein”.

At a rally during the 2009 Irish referendum campaign, he told an audience he does “not want to live in a European empire of the 21st century”.

He also mocked the idea of second referendums in the video uncovered by The Red Roar.

The criticism is being seen as a big blow for Remainers hoping the Labour chief will come round to backing a so-called People’s Vote.

Now Remain and Brexit MPs have seized upon the footage as evidence of Mr Corbyn’s “Euroscepticism”.

Nigel Farage said he “loved this speech” adding: “He is a real Eurosceptic”.

He wants to hear whether the Labour leader’s comments "delight you or disgust you"?
