JEREMY CORBYN WARNS OF TERRORISM TO COME IN 2003

In 2003, when the UK was on the verge of invading Iraq, a passionate opponent to the conflict was the current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn was elected to head the Stop the War coalition two years earlier, its initial cause was to challenge the war in Afghanistan, but the group became well known for their peaceful protests as Tony Blair prepared to send troops to fight. At that point a backbencher, the Islington North MP spoke out against the war's legality, morality and potential effects for years to come, such as the spread of terrorism. In light of the Manchester Arena bombing and the current general election (where Corbyn faces off against Theresa May), Corbyn's activism has gained a new resonance, with supporters seeing his views as prescient and in line with the policies they hope to see enacted.
