JEREMY Corbyn has faced yet further embarrassment after a bricklaying student he was posing with for a photo-op came out for Boris Johnson.
The Labour leader was in full campaign mode in hi-vis with his shirtsleeves rolled up as he helped build a wall for the cameras at Vision West Nottinghamshire Construction College.
He was shown the ropes by a student from the college and later tweeted a photo of both of them at work.
Promoting a flagship election promise, he tweeted: “Labour will build 100,000 council houses a year. And this young man will help build them.”
But just moments later the student revealed he was a fan Corbyns Tory rival.
Speaking to reporters after the photo shoot, he said: I prefer Boris Johnson 100 per cent.
It’s just my background and where I’ve come from.
Tory HQ was quick to capitalise his comments sharing a clip of the lad singing Bo Jos praises and tweeting: People across Britain are backing Boris Johnson to get Brexit done and unleash the potential of the whole country.
Other tweeters were also quick to get in on the act and have a joke at the Labour leaders expense.
Replying to Jezzas tweet conservative commentator Darren Grimes said: “I guess he will, Jezza.
“Right after he’s finished voting for Boris Johnson.”
Another replied: Hahaha! That lad said he would vote Boris.
A final one said: Is this the young gent who said he would vote for Boris when you asked him?’
The awkward remarks came as the Labour Party stands at the centre of yet another antisemitism row as the UKs Chief Rabbi branded Corbyn unfit for office.
Ephraim Mirvissays the overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety ahead of the poll.
Writing inThe Times, he states the Jewish community has watched with incredulity as supporters of theLabourleadership have hounded parliamentarians, members and even staff out of the party for challenging anti-Jewish racism.
He adds: The way in which the leadership has dealt with anti-Jewish racism is incompatible with the British values of which we are so proud of dignity and respect for all people.
He urges every person to vote with their conscience.
He then adds: Be in no doubt, the very soul of our nation is at stake.
