The media has blamed Jeremy Corbyn for many things since he was elected as Labour leader in 2015 including:

In fact, blaming Corbyn has become so popular that it even has its own hashtag:

Stage-storming Corbynista

The latest claim, however, puts the rest in the shade. A man stormed the stage during the British entry for the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon on 12 May. And apparently it’s Corbyn’s fault:

Although that didn’t work out so well:

Predictable

There were those who foresaw it:

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
