"It is just a hint of what the British people would have to look forward to under a Corbyn-led Government."
The roots of the 'scandal' appear to stem from an interview Corbyn did with The Huffington Post UK in which he said: "I don’t want us to move into religious politics in Britain. I respect all faiths, I probably spend more time going to religious services than most people, of all types.
"I go to synagogues, I go to mosques, I go to temples, I go to churches, and I have many humanistic friends and I have many atheist friends. I respect them all."
A spokesman for Corbyn said:" Any suggestion that Jeremy doesn't like Christmas is ridiculous. There is no requirement for a leader of the opposition to issue a Christmas message and It was Jeremy who used his last PMQs to wish parliament and everyone a happy Christmas, including Mr Bridgen."
Additionally, the Daily Mirror's Jason Beatie made this point...
And let us not forget this little controversy at the last PMQs before Christmas, when David Cameron acted like Corbyn didn't say happy Christmas... after he literally did:
And that he also sent out these Christmas cards:
Despite all that, some people however appear to have taken the story at face value.
