Jeremy Corbyn’s sons pay tribute to their ‘honest’ father who ‘took on an entire establishment’

Jeremy Corbyn’s sons have expressed their pride in their father. In a message posted on Twitter by Tommy Corbyn with his brothers, Seb and Benjamin, they said defeat “hurt” and they praised his record of a lifetime of campaigning for the “less fortunate”.

They said he had paid the price for being “honest, humble and good-natured” in the “poisonous world” of politics, with years of “the most despicable attacks filled with hatred”.

As Labour leader, they said that he had produced “the most wonderful manifesto this country has ever seen” and continued:

He took on an entire establishment. This meant the attacks from all sides intensified and became even more poisonous while he was leader. We’ve never known a politician to be smeared and vilified so much.

His unbelievably broad shoulders and incredibly thick skin endured all of this so that we could all live in the hope of a world free of racism or hunger. The man led with a strength difficult to quantify.

They insisted that its time would come saying:

To assume that the ideologies he stands for are now outdated is so wrong. In the coming years we will see that they are more important than ever.

From the three proudest sons on the planet, please continue the fight.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.

    1. Jeremy’s sons have a great deal to be proud of their father, I applaud their family unity, and just because Jeremy didn’t achieve becoming PM, it doesn’t mean he was any less of a man or even a hero, in fact he has even in defeat continued to show his extraordinary strength of heart, mind, and character.

      I am glad, for I really started to fear it, that he has come through this alive. I think that had he achieved his goals, The Israeli’s, The USA, and The UK’s deep state establishment would have assassinated him, they certainly seemed to be getting closer to it each time they spoke about him, and they all broke multiple laws when making it public that they would prevent Jeremy from getting into number 10.

      I would point this out as well, Russia didn’t once tell us which way to vote or threaten any of our leaders. America, The Tories, The LIb Dems, and The Israeli government all broke our laws on elections and interfered, threatened , misled, lied and cajoled in order to damage our nation, both publicly and privately, something so many dishonest people ignored and are still ignoring. Screw the report on Russia, where are the ones about the actual threats made by our so-called allies?

      There should be a lot of high profile people in jail right now because of their criminal behaviour, but our legal system has been as compromised as all the other failing institutions in our country. This was without doubt the most criminally-minded-and-conducted political proceedings we have witnessed since Democracy became a thing here, and there are many who should be sitting in jail for the crimes they have committed against the nation and our democracy.

    2. A good point well written about who is the real threat here to Democracy. A justice system compromised is a polite way of describing the situation.
      The issues raised in Jeremy Corbyn’s vision haven’t gone away just because an election was lost.
      It reminds one how any progressive viewpoint is far more enduring than anyone can recognise at the moment,
      the creation of our civil rights movement for one.
      He has an enduring smile in spite of the hate, vile smearing directed by a campaign of very rich liars speaks for the kind of person Jeremy Corbyn is.
      His still genuine smile says it all.
