Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn deletes criticisms of EU from his web site

In an extraordinary act of self-censorship, UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has deleted hundreds of articles and speeches, spanning decades, from his web site. A video archive of his speeches was also removed. The earliest article remaining on the site is now dated June 8, 2015.
The archive included Corbyn’s record on numerous topics he had addressed as an MP for 33 years. But the main reason for the deletions is to conceal his previous opposition to the European Union (EU), so as not to politically embarrass the Labour Party, which supports the UK remaining part of the EU in the upcoming June 23 referendum on membership.
The decision was taken after Corbyn was attacked by the party’s right wing for not supporting the “Remain” campaign with sufficient enthusiasm. His act of self-censorship shows just how far he is prepared to go in making amends.
