LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Jack Crowe
U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) candidate Keith Fraser mouthed the words “terrorist sympathizer” behind Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s back during Corbyn’s general election victory speech Thursday in Islington North.
Fraser won just 413 votes in the run for the London seat compared to Corbyn’s 40,086 votes, in what was a rough night for UKIP candidates across Great Britain.

Corbyn used his victory speech to criticize Prime Minister Theresa May and Britain’s political right in general.
“The Prime Minister called the election because she wanted a mandate,” Corbyn said. “Well the mandate she’s got is lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence.”
“I would’ve thought that’s enough to go actually and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all the people of this country,” Corbyn concluded.
