Ex-Labour MPs launch advertising blitz against Jeremy Corbyn on eve of the election – The Sun

FORMER Labour MPs are launching an advertising blitz to urge Brits to not vote for Jeremy Corbyn.

The group has placed adverts in newspapers across the country warning voters “Jeremy Corbyn: not fit to be Prime Minister”.


In a blistering attack, they accused the hard-left party boss of having sided with Britain’s political enemies “from the IRA to Russia”.

And they warn Mr Corbyn’s failure to stamp out the anti-Jew racism in his own party makes him unfit to lead Britain.

The group of MPs are all part of the new anti-extremism group called Mainstream.

Two more former MPs – Jim Dowd and Tom Levitt – are the latest MPs to sign up to it.

The advert states: “Everyone wants a safer, fairer society. But in this election the Labour Party is set to deliver the opposite.

“We were all lifelong Labour voters and all former Labour MPs. We are voting for different parties at this election, but we have all come to the difficult decision not to vote Labour.”

'HARD DECISION'

Former minister Ian Austin, the chairman of Mainstream who quit Labour in disgust over anti-Semitism earlier this year, said: “This is a hard decision for Labour supporters to make.

“It was extremely difficult for me and the other former Labour MPs involved too. But the risk is just too great.

“If Jeremy Corbyn enters Downing Street on Friday 13th, it would be a disaster for the United Kingdom.”

It came as a veteran Labour spin doctor who advised Gordon Brown as PM last night vowed to vote Tory tomorrow – as he can’t stomach terrorist sympathiser Jeremy Corbyn.

Paul Sinclair, a top aide in the Better Together pro-union campaign in 2014, also blasted the Labour leader’s plans for a “dirty deal with Nicola Sturgeon”.

He said: “I cannot vote for a Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn. He is not of the Labour tradition.

“There are many reasons I could lay out. His support for terrorists around the globe. For the IRA. His refusal to take on the anti-Semitism in his party.

“The fantasies with which he is trying to con people. The billions he is supposedly going to spend on us all without a clue on how he is going to raise them.

“Notes to Santa written this month by five-year-olds have more realism about them than his manifesto.”
