Jeremy Corbyn is set to inflame opinions yet again after commemorating Armistice Day with a group of school children in Crawley, Sussex.

Observing 2min silence w/ parents in Crawley. We'll remember all those who have died in all wars & resolve to work for peace #RemembranceDay— Jeremy Corbyn MP (@jeremycorbyn) November 11, 2015
He even had the audacity to entertain some children before the ceremony.

As it wasn't on live TV, many people mocked the press's coverage of Remembrance Sunday by simply speculating as to what disrespectful misdemeanours the Labour leader may committed during the two-minute silence.
CORBYN TOO SILENT
Simon Danczuk claims Corbyn's sinister silence spoke volumes of the contempt he has for war dead...— The Sun Apologies (@SunApology) November 11, 2015
I am DISGUSTED at what I imagine Jeremy Corbyn is doing during this 2 mins silence.— Rich Thorne (@RichT83) November 11, 2015
Good to see a sure-footed performance from Corbyn this time. pic.twitter.com/mVcs147o4F— HaveIGotNewsForYou (@haveigotnews) November 11, 2015
Jeremy Corbyn tweeted at 11am! GASP! Proof if needed that he wants to harpoon our veterans through the face.— Helly (@IAmHellsBells) November 11, 2015
Apparently Jeremy Corbyn coughed during that...so...tells you all you need to know, yeah?— Rob Davies (@ByRobDavies) November 11, 2015
It comes after Corbyn laid a wreath at the Cenotaph during the Remembrance Sunday service and instantly drew criticism for not bowing.
That lefty Corbyn was the only one not to bow his head when he put down the wreath on the cenotaph, really is a disgrace to the lab party.— William (@walsallcharlie) November 8, 2015
Only he did...
It may have been a small head bow but it was definitely there.
No respect for war dead from morons upset Corbyn's Cenotaph bow was't low enough to satiate their political prejudice. Pure poison— Kevin Maguire (@Kevin_Maguire) November 8, 2015
Those saying Corbyn didn't bow properly at the Cenotaph: a deeper bow will be photoshopped on later.— David Schneider (@davidschneider) November 8, 2015
Corbyn bashing takes on a new low with *did* he bow at the #Cenotaph. Of course he did. And, in any case...
D'OH!— Michael Vine (@mpvine) November 8, 2015
According to The Telegraph, Sir Gerald Howarth, a former Conservative defence minister, said Corbyn was an "embarrassment" and that remembering Britain’s war dead "requires complete commitment".
At the other end of the scale, David Cameron's bow was so low it caught the cameraman unprepared.
The Labour leader applauded a march-past and even played the role of photographer.
Some claimed he had skipped a VIP lunch to be there although this turned out to be a simple reception rather than a formal sit-down affair.

I'm no fan of Corbyn, but I was at HG 2day, and when no other Politician was seen, he quietly watched ALL return! pic.twitter.com/VMUCV8nzlm— John James (@_johnjames) November 8, 2015
