BERNIE SANDERS DENIES SENDING JEREMY CORBYN MESSAGE OF SUPPORT

It is being reported that yet again Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been left red faced after US Senator Bernie Sanders has denied sending him a message of support.
Mr Corbyn, who is in the Labour leadership battle with Owen Smith, was misinformed by an aide who had wrongly led him to believe Sanders was backing him.
Corbyn told supporters on Monday evening at a campaign phonebank in Walthamstow, east London, that the former Democratic presidential candidate had been in touch to point out the parallels between the two men.

However according to The Huffington Post UK today a spokesman for Senator Sanders said: ‘The senator didn’t send a message and doesn’t intend to get involved in British politics.’
The spokesman added that Senator Sanders ‘has a lot of respect for Mr. Corbyn and wishes him well.’ 
Senator Sanders failed to capture the leadership of his party and is now backing Hilary Clinton for US President. 
But despite Senator Sanders' (left) 'best wishes' a spokesman for the Hilary Clinton support (right) confirmed he had not sent a message of support to Corbyn and it is believed an aid misunderstood

Corbyn told volunteers at the campaign in east London he rejected criticism that he is unelectable by likening himself to Senator Sanders.
As reported by the Press Association he said: ‘We had a message yesterday from Bernie Sanders, saying that they condemned him because he wasn’t electable,
‘And he said the reason they condemned him was because he was electable. And he represented a threat to the establishment within the USA.’
This week Corbyn was under fire for claiming there were not seats on a Virgin train forcing him to sit on the floor but he has now admitted it was because he wanted to sit with his wife Laura Alvarez (right)

Corbyn added: ‘So I think you can see the parallels that are going on there.’
Corbyn will face Owen Smith in a live head-to-head leadership debate tomorrow evening.
As Mail Online reported yesterday, the Labour leader has already been embarrassed this week when he claimed there were no seats on a Virgin train.
He has now got into a ‘traingate’ row with Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson who shared CCTV showing the spare seats on the train Mr Corbyn claimed was ‘overcrowded’.
The Labour leader stoked the increasingly bitter feud with the billionaire as he was forced to admit that there were seats free on the train – but he wanted to sit with his wife. Instead he sprawled on the floor to film a video slamming overcrowding on the Virgin service.
Mr Corbyn was visibly furious to be facing more questions on the controversy at a press conference today, insisting he only wanted to talk about the NHS.
But Owen Smith has also been having his fair share of criticism thrown his way after he said Corbyn was a ‘lunatic’ and that he would block Brexit and ask people to ‘think again’.
Owen Smith who is facing Jeremy Corbyn in the race for Labour leadership has also come under fire this week for his strong views on blocking Brexit
