Newspapers attack Corbyn for national anthem 'snub'

Newspaper front pages on Jeremy Corbyn's anthem 'snub'.

Jeremy Corbyn featured on the front pages of numerous newspapers today for choosing not to sing the national anthem during yesterday's Battle of Britain remembrance service.

Labour said their newly-elected leader, an avowed republican, had instead observed a "respectful silence" during the anthem at St Paul's Cathedral.

The Sun ran with the headline "Corb Snubs the Queen", attacking the "hapless and furious" MP after he "refused" to sing the song.

The Times said Corbyn had been "branded a bigot" following the decision, while the Independent asked: "Is there a spin doctor in the house?"

Corbyn - who has accepted an invitation to join the Queen's privy council despite his opposition to the monarchy - will face off against David Cameron in his first appearance at Prime Minister's Questions today.
