Teenage Corbyn squashed my sister’s baby rabbit with his pogo stick
HORROR ON CHRISTMAS MORNING 1962
HOPPING MAD: Pam will never vote for Red Jezza JEREMY Corbyn’s lefty manifesto may win a few votes among softheaded millennials.
But one woman who will NEVER put her X in the rampant socialist’s box is Pam Scales.
Pam, 64, still shudders with fury when she thinks back to a Christmas morning 54 years ago when she saw the now- leader of the Labour Party SQUASH her little sister’s pet rabbit.
She recalled: “We lived in Shropshire near the Corbyn family. Jeremy would have been about 13 at the time.
“I recall one Christmas Day. My sister Evelyn had been bought a baby bunny.
“We were playing with it at our front gate and suddenly Corbyn comes bouncing down the road on his new pogo stick. They were all the rage back then.
“Without slowing down, he whizzed past our gate and squashed Evelyn’s rabbit flat. She hadn’t even given the little mite a name.
“Evelyn burst into tears and I yelled ‘ Ho! You’ve killed my sister’s rabbit, you wretched Commie!’ Corbyn didn’t even turn around. And this man wants the keys to Number 10? Not while there’s breath WRETCHED: It’s another PR disaster for Labour boss in my body.”
Pam knows she’ll become a hate figure among the so- called Corbynistas – the Labour leader’s personal Red Guard of fanatical supporters – but felt she had to speak out.
She said: “I told a few people last week about what Corbyn did and I had dog dirt pushed through my letter box. A note was pinned to my hydrangeas reading ‘ Stop spreading lies about Jeremy – or you’ll end up squashed like your sister’s rabbit’. It’s chilling.”
Pam’s sister Evelyn, now 57, said she had no recollection of the incident.
She added: “I don’t even remember Jeremy Corbyn living near us, and I never had a rabbit. Pam gets confused. She spends a bit too much time reading the Daily Mail, I’m afraid.”
Last week Corbyn faced PR calamity when his car ran over the foot of a BBC cameraman, and then there’s the Diane Abbott thing.
