Flip-Flop: Hugh Grant Campaigns for Labour Candidate Who Defended Corbyn’s Terrorist Wreath-Laying

A few days ago, I complimented actor Hugh Grant for speaking out against UK Labour’s antisemitism and campaigning for Jewish Liberal Democrat candidate Luciana Berger.

Now it seems he may have less sense and sensibility than first thought (hat tip: Fairbrit).

Hugh Grant was seen on the campaign trail with Labour today, just days after going out canvassing for the Liberal Democrats – only to then accuse them of lying on social media.

The Love Actually star was met by cheering crowds as he joined Labour candidate Faiza Shaheen in the Chingford and Woodford Green constituency, north-east London, on Wednesday evening.

It comes just days after Mr Grant surprised voters in London’s Finchley and Golders Green constituency as he knocked doors with candidate Luciana Berger on Sunday, and was also seen out with Chuka Umunna in Westminster on Monday.

Despite pictures of the Hollywood star appearing to enjoy his foray into politics, he later criticised the party on Twitter after it claimed that it was the only one that could ‘take seats off the Tories’ at the general election.

He replied that this was ‘not true’ and that he advocates tactical voting to unseat as many Conservatives as possible.

Meanwhile, forget the four weddings – it is a funeral Hugh Grant should worry about with Faiza Shaheen – she is the person who rejected the idea that Jeremy Corbyn laid a wreath at the grave of Black September terrorist masterminds and even if he did, it is not a “real antisemitism issue.”

[insert Hugh Jass joke here]
