PFNI calls on Jeremy Corbyn to apologise  for Commons gaffe

The Police Federation for Northern Ireland is calling on the Leader of the Opposition to apologise to the Officer wounded in Sunday night’s gun attack in North Belfast for his jaw-dropping gaffe during Prime Ministers’ Question.

Mr Corbyn extended condolences to the family of the Officer “who lost his life over the weekend in Northern Ireland.”

Reacting, PFNI Chairman, Mark Lindsay, said: “Frankly, I’m appalled that the Leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition should get this so badly wrong on the floor of the House of Commons.

“It was a jaw-dropping gaffe and he should immediately apologise to the Officer and his family.
“Mr Corbyn was either poorly briefed by his staff or he’s that much out of touch with what is happening. Either way, it’s a shocking error to make and needs to be corrected.

“Our colleague is recovering after the ambush on the Crumlin Road. We welcome the expression of good wishes from the Prime Minister, which preceded Mr Corbyn’s contribution, and which more accurately reflected the mood of the House.

“We have excellent working relationships with a number of MPs and I know they will be appalled and embarrassed by Mr Corbyn’s comment”.
