Jeremy Corbyn: Those who support ISIS should NOT be prosecuted – it’s a ‘political view’

5 Jun

said, according to records of parliamentary proceedings: “I have no support for ISIS whatsoever, and obviously that should apply to someone who has committed crimes, but we should bear in mind that expressing a political point of view is not in itself an offence.

“The commission of a criminal act is clearly a different matter, but expressing a point of view, even an unpalatable one, is sometimes quite important in a democracy.

“We should be slightly cautious about announcing that we will start to deal with people on the basis of a general view that they have expressed.”
