Jeremy Corbyn ‘Once Had A Scrap With Robert Kilroy-Silk’ in 1985
In news likely to further endear him to his millions of fans all over the world, it has emerged that the potential new leader of the Labour party isn’t scared of a punch up when it comes to his political convictions.
Whilst campaigning for the former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet to be put on trial, Corbyn and fellow MP Robert Kilroy-Silk were reported to have scuffled in the House of Commons Division Lobby over the issue in 1985.
A Commons insider who has made a fortune divulging details of what goes on behind closed doors told us: “Corbyn and Kilroy had a serious difference of opinion when it came to the whole Pinochet thing. They were arguing about it in the bar after a long day, and Kilroy said something about his Mum looking like Pinochet as Jeremy got up for a trip to the toilet. On his return, Kilroy was standing up ordering drinks and at the precise moment he sat down, Jeremy kicked his stool away and delivered several well placed blows to Kilroy’s face and testes. Kilroy responded by attempting to get his assailant into a headlock, before they were both dragged apart and told to apologise to one another.”
“Generally, if theres a fight in the Commons bar we let them duke it out. Only fair.”
When asked about the incident during the recent Sky News Labout leadership poll, Corbyn offered a wry smile and said: “You’ll have to ask Kilroy about that. It was a different landscape in those days”.
Robert Kilroy-Silk was unavailable for comment at the hospital he is being treated in for depression since his sensational departure from daytime TV some years ago.
