#traingate: Jeremy Corbyn and The Canary sing for an Aisle Free airline

by | 25th, August 2016

On The Canary website, monocular readers can study Jeremy Corby’s responses to #traingate. “Corbyn delivers a brutal message to Richard Branson after the Traingate smear falls apart [VIDEO],” thunders one headline. The apparent “smear” being that Corbyn was misrepresented when he sat on the floor between carriages and said to camera that there were no seats on a packed train when there were, using his suffering to campaign for a return to State-owned railways.

Another story upbraids Richard Branson’s Virgin for running “fuel-guzzling trains”.

As Jeremy Corbyn books handgliding lessons and a sedan chair for his next trip up north, we notice that alongside the Canary’s self-styled “Fresh, Fearless Independent Journalism” is this advert for an airline offering “Aisle Seats for Everyone”.

‘Book now and book often’, as they don’t say in Corbyn’s office.
