Jeremy Corbyn’s #TrainGate Mockery Continues As Virgin ‘Welcomes’ Him Aboard Train To Glasgow

The picture comes two days after a row erupted over whether Corbyn had been right to suggest an Virgin train to Newcastle he was on two weeks ago was “rampacked”.

That particular train ride saw the Labour leader make a campaign message, filmed from the carriage floor of the train, calling for the re-nationalisation of the railways.

The lack of seats was a central point in Corbyn’s video. He said: “This is a problem many passengers face every day on the trains. Today this train is completely rampacked…

“The reality is, there’s not enough trains. We need more of them and they’re also incredibly expensive. Isn’t that a good case for public ownership?”

But on Tuesday, Virgin released CCTV showing Corbyn had passed by empty, unreserved seats before he sat on the carriage floor to record the message.

Thursday’s move saw Corbyn applauded for reserving a seat.
