Jeremy Corbyn gives flooded York a hand – literally

How did the tabloids report on Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s trip to flood-hit York?

Daily Mirror (Page 19) : “Flood chaos: ‘Tory cuts are a massive threat to life.'”

Odd that such a big story should be buried on Page 19. Is Corbyn someone the Labour-supporting Mirror wants to hide?

The story introduces us to a council estate resident, who tells Mr Cobyn he is “disgusted” by David Cameron. It’s possible this is the resident’s default reaction to the Tory leader. The man tells Corbyn, “You are the first to come up here. Mr Cameron went to all the post estates, he didn’t come to council estates.”

A photo of Corbyn talking to a smiling local is captioned “listening”.

Daily Express : nothing.

Daily Mail : nothing.

The Sun (Page 8) : “Jez fails to bag rescue job”
