A rightwing commentator seems to be making a habit of putting his foot in his mouth over Jeremy Corbyn comments.
Darren Grimes, who founded the pro-Brexit group BeLeave and was made famous during a court battle with the Electoral Commission, has taken to sharing images of a hypothetical world under the former Labour leader during the pandemic.
This week he sent a picture out complaining about his faulty broadband, saying: “This is what Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘free’ broadband would’ve looked like, isn’t it?”
But the picture prompted the perfect comeback after one person replied: “Except it is what the broadband you pay for under Boris Johnson actually looks like.”

It’s not the first time the political activist has been found out.
In March, when the start of the pandemic prompted panic buying in supermarkets, he wrote that the empty shelves had given us a look into life under Jeremy Corbyn’s preferred “Venezuelan alternative”.

Several people were quick to point out his blatant error:
Hi Darren. Quick question. Which economic system has this occurred under?— dr matt lodder (@mattlodder) March 14, 2020
This is, quite literally, life under a right-wing British government where the population is confused & frightened. We all need to demand better from our leaders, Darren, wherever we may stand on other issues. I hope your secretly-funded employers permit you to endorse this plea. https://t.co/c00tqzOPoV— James O'Brien (@mrjamesob) March 14, 2020
Darren it has quite literally given us a look into life in the UK under the Tories. https://t.co/urevbsmWx1— katie (@supermathskid) March 14, 2020
