Teenage Cor­byn squashed my sis­ter’s baby rab­bit with his pogo stick

HOR­ROR ON CHRIST­MAS MORN­ING 1962

Sunday Sport - - NEWS - By SI­MON DEAN si­mon@ sun­daysport. co. uk

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.

Breath

“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.
