Jeremy Corbyn’s presence at last week’s Mend meeting is the most significant — and worrying — event of his leadership. It shows that he has not changed since his days as a backbencher, when he welcomed a variety of unsavoury characters to the Commons and gave succour to the more dangerous elements in society. Mend is a malign organisation which exists to undermine Western democracy. All those who attended last week’s meeting — including the Met’s head of community relations — should feel shame for pulling the rug from underneath moderate Muslims who are fighting to counter the influence of the likes of Mend. And what a chilling message it sends about a future Corbyn government.
