For the record we all know what the mass media tried to paint Jeremy as with regards to Iran, what the vast majority of TV pundits lacked to mention was Jeremy is a huge vocal critic of the state of Iran; perfectly illustrated twitter user @clynn561.
Right wing commentators would endlessly tout on about when Jeremy took £20,000 from Iran for appearances on PTV; the actual amount of which turned out to be less than £5000 which it has to be said is far less than most Conservative and Liberal politicians earn each year for media performances.
But less mentioned by all involved (including Jeremy) is his actual record of calling out the Iranian state.
Calling Out Iran
1. http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2009-10/749 – on executions
2. http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2009-10/624 – on women’s rights
3. http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2009-10/337 – treatment of minorities
4. http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2009-10/391 – on student protests
Shown in the figures here Jeremy Corbyn was one of the most vocal critics of the Iranian state within HOC; just because those moments were not recorded vocally on national TV seems to make the mass media think they do not exist – by which they distort the real information and present only proven falsehoods.
