      No problem with that whatsoever, surely the ability to do that is part of what was fought for.

        It could have been worse!

        I liked the doctored image (it was doctored, wasn't it?).

            The thing is that some people will believe what they read in the newspapers. I looked at the photo and thought his image in prison overalls entertaining. Yes - a fake. But its useful fodder to feed to Mr Corbyn’s enemies who might be reading the Mail and The Telegraph.

              I don’t seriously believe that anyone, anyone at all, would see that picture and not realise it’s a comedy fake?? Are there really people that stupid out there? Are they breeding?

              Actually I think I know the answer. Sigh!

                Mail and Telegraph readers don't need feeding. Their febrile imaginations provide them with more than enough material to damn Corbyn.

                  I thought the prison outfit would be better suited to our previous MP (and PM) when he has been to the Hague.

                  Lest we forget, he was also a Labour leader.

                    Corbyn wearing an anorak was a distraction from the other issues such as what else was going on at the Cenotaph. Do you think Blair will get to The Hague and be tried for war crimes?

                          That would be hilarious, and ironic at the same time.

                            The Rememberance Day service at the Cenotaph is perhaps the one occasion where to be inconspicuous and part of the herd is definitely the order of the day. He could have hired the appropriate rig for the weekend.

                            One would have thought that Michael Foot's donkey jacket in 1981 would have been written into the Labour Party rule book as a definite no no.

                            If a leader cannot understand when being a rebel is not making a point but exhibiting ignorance then the person is not a potential national leader.
                            Exactly. Would we be happy if an undertaker wore an anorak or jeans an a Tee shirt?

                            Corbyn's attire on this and previous occasions suggests that he really doesn't care and that he had put no thought whatsoever into the occasion.

                            If he really cared he could have bought a black coat from M&S, kept the receipt and taken it back on Monday morning.
