The Brexit supporter who “egged” Jeremy Corbyn at a public event, has been jailed for 28 days according to Sky News.

John Murphy, 31 of Barnet in West London, attacked Mr.Corbyn when he was speaking at of Finsbury Park Mosque on 3rd of March this year.

Witnesses say that Murphy’s face was “contorted with rage” when he smashed the egg into Corbyn’s head, leaving the Labour leader with a red mark, but no injuries.

Murphy admitted assault by beating at Westminster Magistrate’s Court.

The attack on Corbyn comes after several MPs have been verbally abused in the last few months, with some receiving death threats.

If only people could disagree with their words, rather than their violent actions?
