Labour Slammed Over Ignorance and Contempt Towards Armed Forces

Labour Croydon's Sarah Jones snapped in disrespectful photo

THE LABOUR PARTY has been torn apart by British Legion big beast Tony Pearson after activists trampled all over a war memorial in Croydon, TBG can sensationally reveal.

Images such as the one above have surfaced over the past couple of days, showing Labour Party and Momentum activists climbing all over a war memorial for a campaign election snap showing complete disregard and disrespect for war heroes.

The photos forced Labour into a grovelling apology in The Sun this week.

Now Royal British Legion chief Tony Pearson has slammed Labour's disrespect as "shocking viewing".

Pearson says: "(War memorials) designed and built in memory of the men and women who gave their lives so that we can enjoy free speech, democracy and diversity in society. This weekend, we saw that not everyone understands or even shares these values."

The Royal British Legion Chairman went on: "There’s just one problem -- Jones and her gang aren’t there to pay their respects.

"The photo has been taken to support a Labour Party campaign day. They are waving Labour placards, laughing, with at least four team members standing on top of the memorial. One even has his arms outstretched as if he’s at an all-night rave.

"In a damage limitation exercise, Jones and her team attempted to play down the scandal, pinning the blame on an over-excited activist. Anyone looking at the photograph could see this was at best being economical with the truth. It’s obvious several Labour members are stood directly on the memorial itself.

"Then came the bombshell: further images were published showing additional Jones supporters standing and waving on the memorial, once again.

"But the key question is, should we be surprised that Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party shows such ignorance towards our armed forces? Corbyn publicly refused to sing the National Anthem during the Battle of Britain service in 2015, and has spent far too much of his political career hobnobbing with representatives from the IRA and Hamas.

"Labour’s ignorance and contempt towards our armed forces is unacceptable."
