Piers Corbyn, Jeremy Corbyn’s brother, snubbed Jeremy Corbyn’s Downing Street petition.
Piers Corbyn, Jeremy Corbyn’s brother, gatecrashed his brother’s visit in Downing Street.
Former Labour Party leader Ed Miliband was in Westminster delivering a petition and protesting for a pay raise for nurses. However, anti-vaccine activists surrounded the MP, including Piers Corbyn.
The former Labour leader joined the NHS Workers Say No rally outside Downing Street at 4 p.m. on Tuesday.
His brother appeared as the MP waited to be permitted past security to submit a petition demanding for a 15% pay raise for NHS nurses.
“No more lockdowns!” exclaimed Piers Corbyn into the microphone. and “put an end to the Covid con!”
When asked if the former Labour leader had received his first coronavirus vaccination, Piers said, “I don’t know if Jeremy has taken the vaccine.”
Piers claimed he would be sad if Jeremy took the vaccine “because he might die,” which embarrassed his brother.
Jeremy has been outspoken about the global rollout of Covid vaccines, but he has not revealed if he has received one.
After queries about his health while acting as Labour leader, he told Iain Dale on LBC in June that he had signed a promise that “I would not discuss my personal health with anybody.”
“I’ve went to my local community centers and our local mosque, which were both available for folks to obtain vaccines who didn’t have any appointments because many people…don’t have a GP,” Jeremy added.
“I’ve been a supporter of the local immunization program and will continue to do so.”
Mr Dale informed the MP that he was interpreting this as indication that he had had the vaccine, to which Jeremy responded, “You’re a very perceptive man.”
Outside Downing Street, Piers also railed at current Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.
Jeremy “doesn’t like Keir Starmer” because “he is a liar and a traitor,” according to the anti-vaxxer and former London Mayoral candidate.
Piers attended a rally outside Labour offices earlier on Tuesday, which was organized by groups opposed to expulsions and suspensions.
Labour’s governing committee has agreed to ban four organizations: Socialist Appeal, Labour in Exile Network, Labour Against the Witchhunt, and Resist – in a move that may see at least 1,000 members of the party immediately expelled.
Piers said he was there to show his “whole support” for individuals who he claimed were being “purged from the Labour Party.” “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
