SMART MOVE

Mr Corbyn also wore a dark navy blue tie with a poppy on his coats lapel as he attended the service at the Cenotaph wife Laura Alvarez.

Last year Mr Corbyn caused outrage when he paid his respects in a scruffy-looking hooded jacket.

The leftie-boss was branded scruffy and disrespectful for donning the raincoat as MP and armed forces personnel marked the 100 years since the First World War.

Mr Corbyns jacket was reminiscent of when ex-Labour leader Michael Foot wore a donkey jacket to the Remembrance Sunday service 37 years earlier.

CORBYN NO SHOW

Last night Mr Cobbrn was slammed for failing to turn up to an event honouring British hero soldiers.

The Labour leader’s absence sparked outrage among members of the public – who blasted the move as “a spectacular own goal”.

Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry was at the event but Mr Corbyn and shadow Chancellor were conspicuous by their absence.

One woman tweeted: “What a disgrace, Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell couldn’t be bothered turning up to remember our fallen heroes.”

A man fumed on Twitter: “From a Labour point of view – Corbyn’s non-appearance is a spectacular own goal and will only serve to re-enforce the perception the country have had of him since he became leader. What were they thinking.”

Another man said: “Corbyn… What a total disgrace. I’m so angry.”

Labour have not revealed the reason behind Mr Corbyn’s absence .

But he spent the day over 170 miles from the venue, visiting residents and emergency workers in Doncaster, Yorkshire, affected by major flooding.

The Royal Family, including Kate and William and Harry and Meghan, attended the service at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night.

It comes just days after a Labour frontbencher was blasted for claiming a Remembrance Sunday poppy wreath on expenses.

Marsha De Cordova, shadow minister for work and pensions, claimed 17 back from taxpayers for the floral tribute.

Tory MPs and military leaders slammed the tight-fisted Labour MP, who is a close ally of Mr Corbyn.
The former MP for Battersea issued a grovelling apology, telling the Sun it was an administrative error and she is deeply sorry.
