No, he still doesn't look scary
But immigration is a key dog-whistle for the right-leaning press, and so the creative side of several variously desperate hacks was fired up, and fired up so enthusiastically that many of them are now in need of the nearest fire extinguisher, as their pants are on fire. First to induce an incendiary garment situation was Kate E McCann at the Telegraph, telling “Jeremy Corbyn: All Calais migrants should be given chance to come to Britain”.
“Let Calais migrants into UK, says Jeremy Corbyn … Jeremy Corbyn has called for asylum-seekers waiting in makeshift camps in Calais to be welcomed into Britain, triggering anger among his MPs” told Sam Coates, adding for good dog-whistling measure “The Labour leader concluded a two-day visit to France by urging the British government to follow the example of Germany, which has allowed in a million migrants in a year”.
“Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn last night suggested Britain should take in similar numbers of refugees to the ‘hundreds of thousands’ entering Germany”. Spit it out, Nick, what did Corbyn actually say? “Germany is taking several hundred thousand people and I think we should have been part of the European programme from the very beginning in 2013”. So he’s just making it up to suit the paper’s agenda too, then.
