Leader Corbyn bombs out in BBC election interview disaster
OPPOSITION Leader Jeremy Corbyn has refused to declare whether he would have terrorists killed to protect the British people and failed to apologise for anti-Jewish hatred in the Labour Party during a trainwreck interview with the BBC.
Mr Corbyn was skewered during the disastrous 30-minute segment over his antiWestern policies, his failure to deal with anti-Semitism and his $158 billion election cash splurge. The Labour leader appeared tetchy and ripped off his mic at the end of the cataclysmic interview that some have labelled the defining moment of the election campaign.
Mr Corbyn refused, when pressed several times, to say he would ever give the order to kill a terrorist like Islamic State Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, who was taken out by US troops in October.
“I will take the appropriate decisions at the appropriate time with all the information,” he said. “If it is possible, and only if it is possible, then you try and capture that person.”
Last month Mr Corbyn said Al-Baghdadi should have been captured by US forces despite the fact that the ISIS tyrant blew himself and two children up with a suicide vest.
He had previously said the death of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden at the hands of US troops was a “tragedy upon tragedy”.
When asked again how he could be trusted to protect Britons from killers like Bin Laden and Al-Baghdadi, Mr Corbyn refused to get into “hypotheticals”.
Mr Corbyn has also been lashed for refusing to apologise for the anti-Jewish hatred which has gripped his party and led the UK’s Chief Rabbi to say he is not fit for office.
“I am determined that our society will be safe for people of all faiths. I don’t want anyone to be feeling insecure in our society – and our government will protect every community,” he said. “I don’t want anyone to go through what anyone has gone through.”
Mr Corbyn also struggled to answer how his plans to spend billions on public services and taking state control of major industries would be paid for.
