JEREMY Corbyn’s views on security matters are “simply wrong” and show he is not “prime ministerial material”, a former Labour Home Secretary has declared.
Charles Clarke rejected the notion that Mr Corbyn should lead the country if the Labour party win the General Election on June 8.
Appearing on Newsnight, the influential former Labour juggernaut said: “I never thought he was prime ministerial material. I didn’t support him as leader of the Labour Party.
The Islington North MP has angered many of his contemporaries by repeatedly opposing military action against ISIS and openly refusing to use the UK’s nuclear deterrent.
Mr Clarke added: “I have not taken Jeremy’s advice on security matters for some decades now. He is simply wrong.”
In a speech later today Mr Corbyn will blame the UK’s involvement in military action abroad for recent terrorist attacks.
