Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘nice old grandpa act’ blasted on Question Time as he’s berated over abuse of Jewish MPs – The Sun

JEREMY Corbyn was blasted for his "nice old grandpa act" on Question Time last night.

The Labour leader was berated for how he had handled anti-Semitism in the party and how Jewish MPs had faced abuse.


The most withering takedown of the night for Mr Corbyn came from furious father Ryan Jacobs, who accused him of allowing Jewish MP Ruth Smeeth to be heckled out of one of his press conferences in tears.

He said YouTube videos then show Mr Corbyn “chatting happily to that same heckler”.

The 36-year-old, from Hull, said: “I don’t buy this nice old grandpa. I see that video and that tells me all I need to know and that terrifies me for my daughters as I see what you did. I think that is disgraceful.”

Reeling, Mr Corbyn said: “I ­simply say to you that bad behaviour, misogynism, racism in any form whatsoever is absolutely not acceptable in my party or in society."

Smeeth resigned in June 2016 in protest of Mr Corbyn's leadership.
