The public have responded to the anti-Corbyn hysteria of the mainstream media and political class with a whole hashtag devoted to mocking the hype, and it’s hilarious. Here are some of the very best tweets.
The hashtag came in response to a story by the Telegraph in which they blamed Jeremy Corbyn for the Conservative government’s decision to cut working people’s tax credits. That’s right, blaming the Labour leader, for Tory policy.

He’s caused mass extinctions too.
Not only does he not want to prevent future wars, he’s messing with past wars!

This is rather brilliant.

Of course, some people had a more serious point to make.
20 million people in poverty; NHS privitisation; sanctions; workfare; attacks on workers' rights and human rights. #BlameCorbyn

Why are the mainstream media and permanent political class freaking out about Jeremy Corbyn? I’ve detailed that in full here. Bottom line: he represents the greatest threat to their grip on power in decades. Thankfully, it looks like a growing number of the British public are done with the status quo, and are seeing this media hype for what it is; baseless scaremongering by the gatekeepers of a morally and literally bankrupt system.
