Exclusive: Special Branch monitored Jeremy Corbyn for 20 years amid fears he was ‘undermining democracy’

H/T El Martyachi

Jeremy Corbyn was monitored by undercover officers for two decades amid fears that he was attempting to undermine democracy, the Telegraph can disclose.

A former special branch officer, who does not wish to be named, said that the Labour leader was monitored because he was “deemed to be a subversive”.

The Special Branch definition someone who is subversive “consists of activities intended to undermine or overthrown Parliamentary democracy by political, industrial or violent means.”

Mr Corbyn would have come under the “undermine” category as if there was evidence anyone was about to overthrow democracy they would have been arrested.

    You mean other than the part where he proudly said he would, for 20 years?

    • I hope the country votes May even though she is no great shakes herself.

        Britons have a very shitty choice this time around. May, however, is the lesser of two evils.

    ‘WE WILL RIOT’ Corbyn supporters threaten violence if Labour don’t win election
    The left’s increasing predilection for violence when thwarted.
    How is this different from terrorism?

      It is not.

      The left idolize and romanticise terrorists as more muscular social justice warriors leading “the resistance” to occupation of peaceful muslim and communist lands and have therefore in my eyes cast their lot with them. The crop of leftists today would have all been rounded up( some for detention and some for life in mental institutions) and dealt with had they shown themselves 50 yrs ago.

    What justification would Special Branch and MI5 have for ceasing to monitor him?
    I’d like to think that the monitoring continues.
