Leader's statements on the Manchester bombing

Can you spot the difference between Theresa May's statement and Jeremy Corbyn's?

Theresa May statement:

"We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack.

All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected."

Jeremy Corbyn statement:

"I am horrified by the horrendous events in Manchester last night. My thoughts are with families and friends of those who have died and  been injured. Today the whole country will grieve for the people who have lost their lives.  I have spoken with Andy Burnham, the mayor of Manchester, who has fully briefed me on the operational response in the city.

I would like to pay tribute to the emergency services for their bravery and professionalism in dealing with last night's appalling events.

I have spoken with the Prime Minister and we have agreed that that all national campaigning in the general election will be suspended until further notice."

Jeremy Corbyn just can't bring himself to use the word terrorist in connection with this attack.

Jeremy Corbyn supported the aims of the IRA in the 1970s and 1988s whilst they bombed and shot innocent British civilians. Likewise in the 21st century he supports at least some of the aims of terrorist organisations that bomb and kill Israeli civilians, organisations (such as Hamas and Hezbollah) that are more closely linked to Isis than the likes of the BBC would ever admit. Islamist terrorists want kufr dead, as many as possible. Can you imagine Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister?
