[100 word news] – Corbyn ‘on the right side of history’, says Gerry Adams

Gerry Adams has defended Jeremy Corbyn against recent criticism, saying the Labour leader played a ‘fundamental’ part in the peace process.

‘What he did was very modest, what he did was very fundamental’.

‘He recognised the rights of the people who voted for Sinn Fein and I think he was vindicated by subsequent events’.

‘Because where he led, others followed’.

Mr. Corbyn has been attacked for his refusal to call the IRA a terrorist group, although he has since told journalists ‘I condemn all acts of violence in Northern Ireland from wherever they came’, and that ‘peace was achieved by a lot of bravery both in the unionist community and the nationalist community’.
