Mps Supporting Their Constituents...

Jeremy Corbyn and the conman accused of funding Islamic State: Labour leader stood up for fraudster
Jeremy Corbyn intervenes to secure bail for fraudster accused of conning elderly in scam to raise funds for jihadists in Syria

Mr Corbyn wrote to the court to say that he deserved bail because he had “roots in the area” and was unlikely to abscond. Dahir was subsequently granted bail.
Dahir’s relatives, who are from Somalia, last night claimed that Mr Corbyn, their local MP, is a “family friend” and that they have known him for “many years”.
Mr Corbyn's spokesman said: "Jeremy Corbyn condemns the actions of his constituent as appalling acts against vulnerable people and wholly unacceptable."
Sources claimed when he wrote the letter he was unaware of the alleged links to terror.
They added: "Jeremy was approached by his constituent prior to the trial, and wrote a letter on his behalf as is standard for a constituency MP.

So MPs will support anyone without looking into it?

Sounds like something BrassEye should have a look at. :)

He wrote a letter so why doesn't the telegraph print the letter in full rather than just small snippets of sentences as the article revolves around the letter - it's in the public interest.

It looks like yet another mistake by a UK political party leader.

What has he done wrong? A constituent asked his mp for help, and the mp wrote a letter stating a simple and very obvious fact, which presumably the court was already aware of. Does innocent until proven guilty not apply anymore?

It's all good, this and the Stop the War dinner in the same week. Corbyn could not be doing this better if he was a Conservative Central Office staffer. He is the new Michael Foot and on him the slow, sure doom falls, pitiless and dark.
