    Exactly right.

    Corbyn doesn't give a diddly squat.

      Re: Corbyn at the Cenotaph

      I stood at our town war memorial in anorak as did about 70 members of my Scout Group.


      I suppose I am to be condemned too?

        A strong and valid point which I respect.
        All the best

          Of course not. You are not trying to be our next prime Minister and leader of our country as far as I am aware.

          Do we expect our soldiers to wear a uniform when on parade ?

              No, because your name isn't Jeremy Corbyn and people don't try to discredit you in every possible way.

                  Well we usually parade in uniform but as this Northwest England it pouring with rain and we would have been soaked through in minutes.

                    Re: Corbyn at the Cenotaph

                    I asked the question "Would we be happy if an undertaker wore an anorak or jeans an a Tee shirt?" Nobody has yet offered a cogent reply.

                    My point was and is that whatever Corbyn's views he is expected to attend the Cenotaph in his professional capacity. He is not an unpaid volunteer Scout leader.

                    Attending the annual Remembrance parade goes with his job, and whether he likes it or not he should fulfil that duty with the utmost professionalism. What part of that duty did he not understand when he put himself up for the job?

                    If he doesn't like the heat he should get out of the kitchen.
