Corbyn DIDN'T kneel before the Queen GOOD FOR HIM!

Jeremy Corbyn did not kneel before the Queen as he was sworn in as a member of the privy council, the Guardian understands.

Jeremy Corbyn arriving at Buckingham Palace

The Labour leader, a lifelong republican, took part in the Buckingham Palace ceremony to become a member of the ceremonial body, which enables him to receive confidential security briefings.

Labour said Corbyn complied with the usual processes, which tend to involve kneeling on a stool before kissing the Queen’s hand.

But it is understood Buckingham Palace does not force privy council members to do things they are not comfortable with and that Corbyn did not kneel.

Speaking to ITV News before the ceremony, Corbyn signalled he would not be kneeling. “I don’t expect to be kneeling at all, no,” he said. “I expect to be nominated to the privy council and that’s it.”
