Piers Corbyn Arrested

“The arrest relates to a video posted online in which people were encouraged to burn down MPs’ offices,” the force said. Earlier, the Met said it was assessing a video that appears to show Corbyn, 74, calling for MPs’ offices to be burned down.

The video, shared on social media, shows Corbyn, a prominent anti-lockdown protester and brother of the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, criticizing politicians who voted for Covid restrictions.

After urging the crowd to “hammer to death those scum who have decided to go ahead with introducing new fascism,” Corbyn appears to tell a group in the video: “You’ve got to get a list of them … and if your MP is one of them, go to their offices and, well, I would recommend burning them down, OK. But I can’t say that on air. I hope we’re not on air.”

Anti Vaccine Protest

On Saturday, Piers Corbyn addressed crowds outside Downing Street at an anti-vaccine protest in Westminster. Thousands of protesters had gathered from noon in Parliament Square, where they marched through the capital. According to the Met, officers suffered minor injuries during “scuffles.”

Police say that the arrest, on suspicion of encouragement to commit arson, occurred at 1.45 am.

The home secretary called the police to investigate on Saturday evening, describing the video as “sickening.” Priti Patel wrote in a tweet: “The Piers Corbyn video is sickening. I back the police to take the strongest possible action against him”.

The Labour MP Yvette Cooper also condemned the video as “appalling.” She wrote: “We have lost two MPs to terrible violence in recent years – we know how incredibly serious this is.”
