Solidarity! Jeremy Corbyn heads to Portugal, heralds anti-austerity victory

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn will hammer home the victory of Portugal’s new leftist government and promote its fight against austerity by embarking on a solidarity tour of the country.

The veteran socialist had struck up a friendship with Portugal’s new Prime Minster Antonio Costa and will be visiting the country in solidarity, the Morning Star reports.

We’re going to do that in support of their anti-austerity program. We’re building an anti-austerity coalition across Europe,” Corbyn told the paper.

The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) found the story was inaccurate and that the inaccuracies had been “repeated throughout the article.

The Sun printed an eleven-word retraction on its front page. On page 2, the paper said: “IPSO’s complaints committee found that it was significantly misleading to claim that Labour’s access to the £6.2 million depended on whether Mr Corbyn was a member of the Privy Council.

The two were not formally connected and the article did not make clear how a majority of the funding was in fact allocated. The committee upheld the complaint,” the Sun acknowledged.
