Jeremy Corbyn heckled in Dundee: ‘This is your democracy, is it?’


Can I continue please, my friend? – Get your hands off me. Dear sir, would you mind? – I wish to ask a question. I’ll take questions.
I’ll deal with your questions later, not now. – Please take your hands off me.
Take your hands off me. – This is your democracy, is it? The democracy is that we have
a public meeting, where we conduct it in a reasonable manner and those that
wish to say something at the end are, of course, free to do so.
[Applause] So, thank you very much. [Applause] Democracy is not when you interrupt
somebody when they’re speaking.

  1. Dear "Guardian (angel) News" and friends, 👼
    Thank you for posting.
    This reminds me of my dad.
    He retired in the mid 1980's, so he was home when I was a kid.
    True story:
    Back in the late 1980's to early 1990's..
    My dad used to argue with the grocery store managers about coupons on milk.
    😑🍼
    They always said it's 1/2% only! 🧐
    He needed 2%. 😪
    The coupon was specifically for 1/2% milk!! 😡
    The manager wouldn't budge, so he shopped elsewhere.
    🚶‍♂️… 🥛=💲
    Pretty much the same thing applies here, I think.
    Michigan
    USA 🇺🇸
    Peace🌿 🕊

  2. Corbyn couldn't just listen to the gentleman's question?
    I could imagine the indignation if Boris had acted so dismissively…

  3. The death of democracy will not come when people stand up for what they believe in, but when they are partisan without actually having the inclination or intelligence to learn about something before casting their vote.

  4. Old guy not joining the dots (The story of Brexit. People not knowing their real enemy or friends). Should have been shouting at someone supporting Brexit outright, and from a party with form, as far as stone walling and ridiculling Scottish Independence goes. Not someone giving a choice on Brexit that may well make an Independence Referendum unnecessary. Thought Jeremy Corbyn was polite as always.

  5. And democracy is not forcefully trying to eject someone because you don't like what they're saying either, Jeremy

  6. My family has been in America since 1620 and I am more British than Corbyn or these crybabies commenting here…

  7. So shout and yell at someone who has your best interests at heart? The SNP are just another branch of the Tories.

  8. If Corbyn loses his cool this quickly at a heckler, then how's he supposed to negotiate and represent out country xD

  9. Corbyn supports armed struggle when it suits him. At the moment he prefers to hide behind democracy and public meetings.

  10. Democracy is the will of the masses. If the majority of citizens have the education level at/below high school, we can’t be surprised when they’re bamboozled by a con man 🍊. Selecting the most qualified individual is far better than the illusion of democracy and the will of the people.

  11. How dare corbyn talk about democracy when the country voted leave and all he has done is try to stop it. I voted remain but I believe in democracy so we must leave. Come Election Day he will be history I will be voting conservative for the first time in my life.

  14. Mr Corbyn was right to address this man in the way he did. However, I'm of the opinion that the Labour Party's unresolved, key, division on its Brexit policy has now ensured that Mr Corbyn's long run at consensus politics on Brexit is about to unravel in the most dramatic way with a Labour Party annihilation on December 12th 2019.

  15. LABOUR OFFICIALS MAN HANDLING A PENSIONER, and the hand picked crowd clapped. And you lot wonder why the rest of us wont vote for you . At least 3 times I distinctly heard this old man say "get your hands off me." SHAME . The bully boys of the 70s Labour hegemony still out n about . When will they realise times have changed ,and people will not be frightened by their intimidatory practises any more.

  16. Rude man interrupts meeting. Politician rightly points out he will answers questions at the right agreed time. Facist Youtube'rs weigh in with their usual mindless tat.

  17. Jeremy Corbyn, The Labour Party and its radicalised supporters are the worst thing to happen to the UK in decades.

    I really really hope they get utterly obliterated in the election.

  18. "Democracy is not when you interrupt someone when they're speaking" I do agree with that. It's also not when you try to block the will of 52% of voters either

  19. How can you have a man who sympathises with terrorists and hangs around with anti-Semitic racists running the country ?

  22. How can the guy ask a question at the end when they are kicking him out…..? He wont be there at the end and Corbyn knows this….. but of course Corbyn will answer his question at the end. hahaha

  23. Lmao, you can't just interrupt someone, then expect everyone to listen and when they don't cry: "Muh democracy"
    Nice one Guardian, trying to make Corbyn look bad, go back to your bilionaire overlords and try again.

  24. Oh no, the left are getting a taste of their own medicine 🙂 Regardless, there must have been a whole 30 people there! Packed event.

    CONSERVATIVE MAJORITY INCOMING! COME ON YOU BLUES!

  25. Oh, dear. Now Corbyn and the remain campaign have gotta argue that the reasons why they should have as many referendums as it takes to overturn the result of a referendum they lost somehow don't apply to everyone else =/

  26. It is clear that the weak and insane left do not tolerate their own medicine. Another example of the hypocrisy of the left.
