Controversial Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, was in more hot water last night after a woman from Penge in South East London, made the claim that he climbed onto her roof and deliberately bent her TV aerial while she and her husband were enjoying an afternoon in front of the television.
Mrs Mary Tracy, 50, told reporters: “My husband and I were watching a repeat of Pride And Prejudice on UK Gold when the picture went a bit funny. At about the same time, we heard scuffling noises which sounded like somebody on our roof. We both went out to take a look and spotted Jeremy Corbyn bending our aerial. My husband shouted at him and asked him what he was playing at, but he took no notice and just carried on. He bent one of the antennae almost in half
“When he came down the ladder he looked wild-eyed and his clothing was disheveled. I’m pretty certain he’d been drinking. My husband was going to hit him but I told him to just leave it and that he wasn’t worth it.”
Corbyn, last night strongly denied the incident took place; telling reporters: “I absolutely refute this lady’s allegation. I have never bent anyone’s aerial and have no plans to do so in the future. Anyway, I couldn’t have done it as I was round Ken Livingstone’s house watching the Argentinian general election on his plasma screen.”
If these allegations prove to be true, it will be the second time the left-wing leader has been implicated in a tele communications-based controversy, following his conviction in 2001 for urinating over the Freeview box of a couple in Bow, East London, while they were trying to watch The World Darts Championships on Eurosport.
