The Jewish UKIP candidate standing against Jeremy Corbyn taunted the Labour leader during his election victory speech, calling him a ‘terrorist sympathiser.’
Keith Fraser received just 413 votes on Thursday night, and was caught mouthing the insult after Corbyn romped home to win his seat with more than 40,000 votes.
Apparently unaware of the insult being mimed by the right-wing politician behind him, the Labour leader continued to deliver his speech, at the start of a remarkable night for the party in which they picked up over 260 seats.
Fraser, who used to be a member of the Conservative Party, finished fifth in the North London constituency, marginally ahead of Jewish Labour donor Michael Foster. He stood against Corbyn after predicting the party would be facing “annihilation” on June 8 because the “blinkered” leader lacks the attributes required to win.
Jeremy Corbyn has been accused of having links to terror groups, after introducing members of Hezbollah and Hamas as ‘friends’ during a parliamentary meeting in 2009. Corbyn has also been criticised for holding meetings with political representatives of the IRA at the height of the Troubles, just weeks after the terror group bombed a hotel in Brighton, killing five people.
