Former Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn WON’T be fined £200 for breaking the COVID ‘Rule of Six’ despite being caught on camera at a dinner party for nine.
It has been revealed that Jeremy Corbyn will not be fined €224 (£200) after all as he broke the ‘Rule of Six’ at a dinner held to remember the late Occupy Wall Street organiser David Graeber earlier this week.
The former Labour leader, 71 and his wife Laura Alvarez, 51, joined Mr Graeber’s widow, the artist Nika Dubrovsky, for the ‘remembrance’ meal. Mr Corbyn and his wife were pictured at the dinner alongside seven other people, breaking the current rules on gatherings. He later apologised but many people were saying ‘too little too late’ and complained he set a ‘very example’ to the British public.
However, Scotland Yard has confirmed the former Labour leader will not be fined, sparking outrage, especially on social media. A police spokesman revealed that police will not retrospectively enforce coronavirus laws. Apparently, police do not issue fines retrospectively for breaches of coronavirus legislation to allow people the chance to listen to and follow advice.
It comes as allies of Mr Corbyn began a hunt for the ‘spy in the camp’ who leaked the photo of the dinner to the media. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s father Stanley, who was caught in newsagents without a face mask on this week, will also not be fined under the same conditions.
