FORMER US president Bill Clinton called Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn “the maddest person in the room” at a fundraising dinner, WikiLeaks revealed yesterday.
The comments were made to rich donors at an official Hillary Clinton campaign dinner in October 2015, soon after Mr Corbyn’s election to the Labour leadership.
In the speech, Mr Clinton claimed that Labour members, being already angry with Tony Blair over the Iraq war, had reacted to Ed Miliband’s election defeat last year by reaching the “interesting conclusion that they lost because they hadn’t moved far left enough, and so they went out and practically got a guy off the street to be the leader of the British Labour Party.”
Mr Clinton compared the election of Mr Corbyn to the rise of Syriza in Greece. He claimed that when people feel they’ve been shafted, “they just want the maddest person in the room to represent them.”
