Army mutiny threat shows ‘fear of democracy’

Responding to an army general’s anonymous threat of a ‘mutiny’ against a Jeremy Corbyn government, Salman Shaheen of Left Unity said:

“Jeremy Corbyn’s critics accuse him of wanting to drag Britain back to the past. But an army general are now threatening a mutiny against him – a coup that would drag Britain back to a time before democracy.

“The combined might of the right wing press, the Tories, New Labour, big business and the military elite are all lined up against Corbyn.

“Let’s be clear what this means. They talk of patriotism, but they are afraid of democracy – and they hate the British people.”
