To think that if you stand in the path of a moving car you may get your foot run over?

I'm no fan of Corbyn but I can't see that this is his fault.

If you look at the video, the car just does exactly what you would expect it to do. It drives forward towards the entrance it was obviously aiming for.

If you try to film a car close up, surely there is a risk of this happening? Obviously I wouldn't wish this on the poor cameraman, but I can't see how it is Corbyn's fault.

Corbyn wasn't even the driver - it was a police officer. The whole story is nonsense.

It is a set up.

Alternative - in what way? no cameraman (normally self employed) is going to risk being off work for a set-up. So who did the setting up? I agree the reporting of it in the DM etc was ludicrous but a set-up? By whom?

A cameraman (or anyone self-employed) may do something dumb if paid enough. Not that I am condoning the conspiracy theory. The whole story is ludicrous though.

Just watched the video (www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/05/11/bbc-cameraman-run-jeremy-corbyns-car/). Car is moving slowly (almost walking pace), enters a narrow side entrance. The front wheels are already past the cameraman, he cries out just as the rear corner is level with his camera/mike, so it was the rear wheel that went over his foot.

so he must have stepped forward as it passed him. All his own fault.

It is a non-story, but I suspect it would have been given similar prominence if it had been Theresa May in the car - it would have been given as an example of Tory heartlessness towards the ordinary working stiff.

The car should have reversed quickly to see if they could help....

Like WhereYou says, it seems to be the rear wheel that went over his foot.

What a dickhead. What do you expect if you walk right up to a moving car
