Poor Jeremy Corbyn, always ending up in the wrong place at the wrong time. After revelations in the Daily Mail that he had laid a wreath near the graves of those involved in the 1972 Munich terrorist attack, he finally clarified what happened. Asked by Sky News if he was involved in the tributes, he answered:

‘I was present when it was laid, I don’t think I was actually involved in it’

In fairness, who hasn’t accidentally found themselves at a service where tributes were paid to the planners and perpetrators of a terrorist massacre?

Update: There appears to be a problem
