Tory MP Ben Bradley sparked outrage last week with a baseless, tweeted accusation that Jeremy Corbyn had ‘sold British secrets to communist spies’. The tweet prompted a letter to Bradley from Corbyn’s lawyers, insisting that Bradley issue an unreserved apology, ask his followers to share it and make a significant donation to charities of Corbyn’s choice – or face court action.
Bradley rapidly deleted his ill-judged tweet.
But today Bradley did everything that Corbyn had demanded, in a humiliating climbdown. Spot the keywords it’s believed Corbyn’s lawyers insisted he repeat to an embarrassing degree:

Ben Bradley Climbdown and Apology to Jeremy Corbyn
It’s nice to see at least one Tory facing up to his lies – although this has only happened because of the sheer amount of proof that it was a lie, and because Jeremy Corbyn had finally had enough of the Tory out-and-out lies; the smear campaigns brought by both the Tories, and the right-leaning MSM that he is a Communist Spy, that he sold secrets to the Czechs, and every other false news they could think of to cause him harm!
The continuous barrage of contempt that the Tories have spewed at Jeremy Corbyn, especially since he was voted in as Leader of the Labour Party, is totally beyond the Pale, and the blackening of this gentle man’s name is a shame, and disgrace, for Westminster as a whole – as nothing at all has been done to curb the vituperation expelled by the Tory Party, at a man blameless of all their cowardly lies!
Jeremy Corbyn is a man who is trying to help us all out of this nightmare of an Ideological-driven forced Austerity – but the apology was only made because Bradley was so totally caught out in his lies!
What we need now is for Bradley to quit, although I can’t ever see any Tory admitting to their wholesale slandering of Jeremy Corbyn since he was voted in as Labour leader!
We all know that, if the Tories sacked everyone in their party who has been caught out in such rotten – and sustained – lies, then the whole party, including May, who lies continuously to the British Public, would have to resign!
And the real Irony of it all?
Rather than making the British Public hate Jeremy Corbyn, as the Tories had hoped, the sheer avarice of the Tory Party as a whole; their greedy selling off of our publicly funded NHS to US medical firms; and their nasty, dirty, deals that have been brokered to anyone they could sell our publicly owned treasures to, has been exposed, and Jeremy Corbyn has got to the attention of so many more people, who might not have bothered about politics before Austerity was forced on us all, and so people have started looking into this totally unfair smearing campaign, and seen the truth beneath the lies – and I’m proud to be one of them!
