How The Internet Reacted – “The Labour Party is now a threat”

Not long after Jeremy Corbyn was elected the new leader of the Labour Party, David Cameron and his Conservative’s went on the offensive. Predictable – but perhaps not incredibly well judged by the Prime minister.

The fear of politics is a powerful tool, as proved by the general election – but this reaction shows that the public aren’t quite as brainless as David Cameron and his Tory cronies seem to believe.
