The Telegraph reports:
Jeremy Corbyn has been forced to abandon plans to give a speech calling for all Turkish citizens to gain access to the UK amid fears that it could push Britain out of the European Union.
Corbyn was clearly oblivious to the fact that his endorsement of the E.U. move to award Turkey visa free travel for its citizens might not help matters in the up coming British referendum on E.U. membership.
Sources inside the leader’s office are understood to have intervened to get the speech scrapped, triggering a furious row.
We appreciate that Jeremy Corbyn lives within an ideological bubble with little concern for political practicalities. It does still however beg the question: how clueless can you be?
