Sun and Mail Online both take down stories claiming Jeremy Corbyn was 'dancing a jig' on way to Cenotaph

The Sun and Mail Online have both taken down online stories which suggested Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was “dancing a jig” on his way to the Cenotaph on Rembrance Sunday.

The Mail Online story was headlined: “Is this really the day to audition for Strictly, Jeremy? Corbyn appears to dance a jig at the Cenotaph as he waits for the Remembrance Day parade.”

The Sun’s headline said: “Jeremy Corbyn dances his way down Downing Street as he attends Remembrance Sunday.”

Both papers showed a sequence of photographic stills to back up the story.

The Daily Mirror reported that the photos in fact showed Corbyn walking along and talking to 92-year-old World War Two veteran George Durack who said he was: “walking along with Jeremy and he certainly didn’t dance”.

  1. Is that it? Five pars ‘reporting’ a clear fabrication without saying so? I’m sure IPSO will have something to say about that

  2. Part of the way the right wingers operate. They’ll continue to portray him as either a threat or a clown right up until the election. Withdrawing the more ridiculous stories, after they’ve done the rounds is how they protect themselves.
