Coronavirus UK: Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers protests lockdown

Jeremy Corbyn‘s conspiracy theorist brother has again spearheaded an anti-lockdown protest, after he claimed coronavirus was being used by the ‘new world order’ to inject Britons with microchips.

Piers Corbyn, 73, was seen carrying a sign which included the slogan ‘end lockdown now’ during the 40 person strong protest in the centre of Glastonbury, Somerset, on Sunday. 

Police were forced to break up the protest and say two men have been arrested, and since released under investigation, while three others were slapped with fixed penalty notices.

Somerset and Avon Police would not confirm if Mr Corbyn was one of those dealt with by police.

It is the third demonstration the weather forecaster, whose brother is former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, has spearheaded in a matter of weeks.

At a previous demonstration, videos showed Piers Corbyn giving a speech claiming there was no pandemic.

So far there have been almost 250,000 coronavirus deaths recorded worldwide, including more than 28,000 in the UK, while there have been more than 3.5million recorded cases across the planet.

At previous demonstrations, Mr Corbyn also claimed that the government’s rules to keep two metres apart from others was to allow GPS and 5G satellites to more easily identify individuals.  

In the previous demonstrations he has claimed vaccinations for coronavirus will be used to injected Britons with microchips, according to the Sun

During his speech at a previous demonstration, Mr Corbyn can be heard saying: ‘We all know the lockdown has failed us. It has caused misery.

The latest demonstration spearheaded by Piers Corbyn was broken up by police on Sunday.

In a post on Twitter, Avon and Somerset police said: ‘Officers have dispersed the small protest in Glastonbury which took place at lunchtime today.

‘Two men have been arrested and taken into custody and three further people have been given fixed penalty notices, all under COVID-19 legislation.’   

Public gatherings are banned under the current lockdown measures, introduced in March as a way to slow the spread of coronavirus. 

Mr Corbyn hit headlines in April last year, while brother Jeremy was still Labour leader, when he called Greta Thunberg an ‘ignorant, brainwashed child’.

Mr Corbyn tweeted an image of the 17-year-old, who is from Sweden, alongside a swastika.

It came a day after brother Jeremy had met Ms Thunberg in London as she showed her support for climate change group Extinction Rebellion. 

The then-Labour leader later described the meeting as ‘absolutely fascinating’, saying they had discussed issues around pollution, emissions and agriculture.
