Labour leader stripped of ‘Right Honourable’ title

October 15, 2015

According to The Telegraph:

The Queen’s advisers told Parliament to strip Jeremy Corbyn of his “Right Honourable” status after Number 10 wrongly implied the Labour leader had joined the Privy Council…

Mr Corbyn, a known republican, said last month he was not previously aware that joining the Privy Council meant he had to kneel before the Queen and kiss her hand.

It means that the Labour leader cannot be briefed on security matters…which will complicate efforts by ministers to use intelligence to persuade Mr Corbyn on backing British involvement in military action over Syria.

A Labour source source blamed an “administrative error”.
