Theresa May twists Corbyn’s words on Manchester attack to grab a few extra votes

UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has had the audacity to utter the unthinkable. In his first campaign speech since the terrorist attack on Manchester Arena, he dared to link Britain’s involvement in foreign wars to terrorism on British soil.

During the 15-minute speech on how Labour would deliver on domestic security in the UK, Corbyn said: “Many experts, including professionals in our intelligence and security services have pointed to the connections between wars our government has supported or fought in other countries, such as Libya, and terrorism here at home.

It’s no surprise that Corbyn was immediately accused by his critics of politicizing the Manchester attack by drawing a link between terrorism and foreign policy. But the response from Prime Minister Theresa May was perhaps the most sickening and disingenuous of all.

Speaking on the sidelines of the G7 in Taormina, May unashamedly twisted Corbyn’s words and lied blatantly: “Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault,” she said, before going a step further to imply Corbyn had made excuses for the Manchester attacker: “There can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism. There can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.

Let’s just get this clear: Jeremy Corbyn did not say terrorist attacks on British soil are the fault of British people — and he did not make any excuses, nor did he imply any excuses could ever be made, for terrorists who carry out such attacks.

For anyone who actually listened to his speech, there can be no debating this. Corbyn never said any such thing. May simply decided to take his actual words and fashion them into something which she thought might win her a few extra votes in the upcoming general election. Ten days out, with her lead in the polls dramatically sinking, any dig against Corbyn will do — even if she needs to stoop to calling him a terrorist sympathizer.
