Jeremy Paxman interviewed Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, on the Sky News leaders debates program and wasted no time in questioning Mr Corbyn on his views regarding Bin Laden
Mr Paxman did not hold back, he said: “Why did you then describe the killing of Osama Bin Laden a tragedy?”
To which Mr Corbyn replied: “Because I think he should have been arrested and put on trial”
Jeremy Paxman was referring to an interview the Labour leader gave for Iranian TV saying:
“no attempt whatsoever that I can see to arrest him and put him on trial, to go through that process”.
He went on: “This was an assassination attempt, and is yet another tragedy, upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy.
“The World Trade Center was a tragedy, the attack on Afghanistan was a tragedy, the war in Iraq was a tragedy. Tens of thousands of people have died. Torture has come back on to the world stage, been canonised virtually into law by Guantanamo and Bagram.
“Can’t we learn some lessons from this? Are we just going to sink deeper and deeper? The next stage will be an attempted assassination on Gaddafi and so it will go on. This will just make the world more dangerous and worse and worse and worse.”
Do you think Mr Corbyn was right in saying that Bin Laden should have been put on trial? Or does this prove many theories that the Labour leader does not have a backbone and is a weak leader?
The top priority for any government is to protect the state, I do not believe for a second that Jeremy Corbyn is capable of fulfilling such important task.
