British general threatens to go Pinochet on Jeremy Corbyn

A government headed by opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn could face “a mutiny” from the British Army if he tries to downgrade it or pull out of NATO, a senior serving general told The Sunday Times.

Corbyn’s victory as Labour’s leader and the head of Westminster’s official opposition has been greeted with “wholesale dismay,” even among Labour-supporting soldiers, a senior serving general told The Sunday Times, on condition of anonymity.

Moreover, if Corbyn wins the 2020 general election, in which he plans to run for PM, and attempts to downgrade the armed forces, scrap the Trident nuclear program or pull out of NATO “there would be mass resignations at all levels and you would face the very real prospect of an event which would effectively be a mutiny,” he said.
