Corbyn speech well received 'except the bit about shooting the …

Jeremy Corbyn s first speech to conference as Labour leader has been broadly welcomed by party members. However, some have expressed reservations about how the suggestion that the Royal Family should be put up against a wall and shot will play with the wider electorate . Corbyn later played down the comments and said that Labour was a long way from adopting the liquidation of the Royal Family as official policy.

I m really just opening a debate on the role of the Royal Family in the 21st century, he said. I m not seriously suggesting we should shoot the Royals but their relevance in a modern society should be examined. I m not a royalist but I have nothing but affection and respect for our Royal Family.
