I once stumbled upon an article that argued there have been many instances where Jeremy Corbyn has been on the 'right' side of history. One example it provided was the Northern Ireland Peace Process, whereby the current Labour Leader was 'engaging in dialogue' with Gerry Adams before mainstream British politicians did. No one can argue with the fact that it was talks, not bombs, that brought an end to the Ulster conflict. However, this article's interpretation of Mr. Corbyn's actions then have been misconstrued to fit the columnist's agenda.

During that time, Mr.

Corbyn never brought the leaders of other Northern Irish parties together to discuss a peaceful solution. He only spoke to Sinn Fein. That is because the republicans share the same beliefs as the current Labour Leader: a hatred of the British and its institutions, particularly the monarchy. The IRA will stop at nothing to drag the British out of Ulster and unify Ireland by force. This is the cynical reason behind Mr. Corbyn's discussions with Mr. Adams then. It had nothing to do with peace. It was about creating a socialist and unified Ireland at the expense of murdering British soldiers. Even current Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has been exposed for declaring his support for Irish terrorism in the past.

As the Northern Ireland Peace Process is on the verge of collapsing, Mr. Corbyn is strangely silent. If he was so proactive in the twentieth century in persuading mainstream politicians to talk to Sinn Fein, why is he not involving himself now? Surely he has even more reason to get involved now, as it is no party's best interests for Ulster to return to violence?

"Mr. Corbyn will never condemn Irish republicanism"

The reason for this is because Mr. Corbyn will never condemn Irish republicanism. He would love nothing more than for the Peace Process to collapse and score points against the Government. It has nothing to do with Northern Ireland's best interests. He would love to humiliate the Conservatives over this issue, even though he claims he has a track record of supposedly 'urging Gerry Adams to support peace.' The Labour Leader does not care about supporting the Tories on cross-party matters.

He supports playing politics at any cost.

To suggest Jeremy Corbyn has been on the right side of history on Northern Ireland is false. It has never been about peace for him. It has been about allying with a party that shares his hatred towards a nation whose secret services have been monitoring him since the 1970s.
