Someone Hacked Jeremy Corbyn's Twitter Account And Abused David Cameron

"Davey Cameron is a pie"

Posted on

Jeremy Corbyn's Twitter account was apparently hacked on Sunday night by someone who posted a series of abusive tweets.

The tweets variously include a football chant, a message opposing the renewal of the Trident nuclear missile defence system, and a declaration that the prime minister of the United Kingdom is "a pie".

The person responsible then tweeted a final simple, powerful message to the world: "Straya cunts".

"Straya cunts" is a phrase used by some Australians as a spontaneous expression of pride or to justify idiotic behaviour.

The tweets were deleted within minutes.

It is unclear whether Jeremy Corbyn really thinks David Cameron is "a pie".
