Despite 24 million people watching the ceremony around the UK and the world, Corbyn focused his attention instead on welcoming the appointment of “moderate” Janet Daby in the upcoming east London contest.
Corbyn’s spokesperson this week confirmed the Islington North MP would not watch the Royal wedding live on Saturday. “Catch up is available,” the spokesperson told reporters.
On Saturday, Corbyn was promoting his appearance at Labour’s State of the Economy conference.
And he posted several messages about mental health, worker’s rights and the NHS.
It’s safe to say the absence of a Royal message endeared Corbyn to republicans.
