Jeremy Corbyn, the man who was almost Prime Minister of Britain, has a brother who is a prominent conspiracy theorist. He’s been on Alex Jones many times (regrettably, those videos have all been deleted from YouTube, but I’m sure someone who really wants to can find them somewhere).
Now he’s arrested for not having a loisence to protest the lockdown hoax…!

Always remember your loisence, m8. It’s for your own safety.
Jeremy Corbyn’s brother is among several people to be arrested at a coronavirus protest in London.
Conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers gathered at Speakers’ Corner on Saturday for one of dozens of “mass gatherings” organised across Britain to oppose lockdown restrictions.
Piers Corbyn, the former Labour leader’s brother, used a megaphone to tell the crowd that the pandemic was a “pack of lies to brainwash you and keep you in order”, shouting: “Vaccination is not necessary.”
The astrophysicist was taken away after refusing to leave when asked by a police officer or to give his details.
He is believed to have been arrested under the Health Protection Regulations, which make gathering in a group of more than two people illegal.
Protesters followed Mr Corbyn as police took him to a nearby van, chanting “shame on you” at officers and booing.
Like many of the protesters, Mr Corbyn claimed coronavirus was linked to 5G technology, adding: “5G enhances anyone who’s got illness from Covid, so they work together.”
The baseless conspiracy theory has caused a wave of vandalism against 5G masts and attacks on engineers.
The Metropolitan Police said 19 people were arrested and 10 given fines for breaking the Health Protection Regulations.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Laurence Taylor said: “It was disappointing that a relatively small group in Hyde Park came together to protest the regulations in clear breach of the guidance putting themselves and others at risk of infection.
“Officers once again took a measured approach and tried to engage the group to disperse. They clearly had no intention of doing so.”
There was a heavy police presence at the demonstration, which saw some people group together with signs and chants of “no 5G” and “no forced vaccinations”.
We should wonder about these people linking 5G stuff to coronavirus, as this is clearly absolute kookery.
When you have the brother of a powerful politician who comes from a powerful family out there promoting this stuff, you should wonder doubly. Because it is very clear to me that in order to discredit ideas, the establishment attempts to associate them with kooky and unrelated stuff.
However, it is possible that Corbyn is simply a legitimate kook.
There are some serious questions about the health implications of 5G, there are also serious implications for the spying apparatus that are not being discussed with relation to this technology. However, it is not causing people to die of coronavirus. Not even coronavirus is causing significant numbers of people to die from coronavirus. This is dumb disinformation, and whether these people are legitimate kooks or disinformation agents, it’s no wonder the media wants to focus on these types of theories.
