Corbyn on irony

online only (speech by • jeremy corbyn, originally recorded 19th january 2013)

“[Manuel Hassassian’s speech] was dutifully recorded by the thankfully silent Zionists who were in the audience on that occasion, and then came up and berated him afterwards for what he’d said.
They clearly have two problems. One is they don’t want to study history, and secondly, having lived in this country for a very long time, probably all their lives, they don’t understand English irony either’.”

(the words ‘British’ or ‘Britain’ were not actually used: the daily mail and the bbc have very reasonably inferred them)
(irony, n.: saying something untrue or offensive, but claiming to mean the opposite)
