6 ISSUE 105 / 2017 NEWS LONDON NEWS CORBYN WINS PRESTIGIOUS PEACE AWARD - MEDIA TURNS A BLIND EYE Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was in Geneva on Friday 8th of December, where he was awarded a highly prestigious International peace prize. The award named the Sean Macbride prize, after the 1974 Nobel Peace Prize winner, was given to Corbyn for his "sustained and powerful political work for disarmament and peace". Yet the spectacle of a party leader receiving such a prestigious award has been totally swept under the rug by all mainstream media outlets. Had it been Theresa May or one of her allies the news would have been rammed down our throats. This is a very telling and a symbolic moment for the state of not only mainstream media but modern politics in Britain. We are in a strange time when Theresa May and her government are still in absolute turmoil over Brexit, squabbling endlessly at the expense of billions and billions of pounds. Corbyn receiving another award to add to his collection (including the Gandhi International Peace Award in 2013) frankly puts most other politicians to utter shame. It acts as a stark contrast to the current political atrocities and reminds us of what fundamentally makes a good politician - being dedicated to principles aof peace and actually trying to create a better world for everyone, regardless of class or nationality.
