In the controversial interview, Mr Corbyn said: “I think it’s time that we just moved on.”

“When the Queen completes her reign, wouldn’t that be an appropriate time to call it a day and have an elected Head of State?” asked Mr Corbyn.

“A large majority of Labour MPs would like to see a change in the attitude of the monarchy and the way the Royal Family operates.”

Corbyn, who was a backbench MP when he made the comments on GMTV in 2001 – revealed that Republicans were a ‘minority’ in the Labour Party.

He predicted the public mood would shift as “public opinion moves more in favour of a complete democracy”.

Eighteen years later, Mr Corbyn’s predictions failed to come true. Earlier this year it was revealed that 65% of Brits think that the UK should keep the monarchy and Only 19% wanted Britain to become a republic.

27% thought that the Monarchy was a ‘meaningless institution’ and 65% thought there was still a place for the Monarchy in modern Britain. 70% thought that Britain was perceived more positively abroad due to the Royal Family.

During the 2019 Election campaign, Mr Corbyn lied about watching the Queen’s speech on Christmas day – as MILLIONS of working-class patriots do at 3pm.

ITV News anchor Julie Etchingham asked the Labour boss if he watches the Queen’s speech.

To which Mr Corbyn said: “It’s on the morning, usually we have it on.” (It’s aired at at 3pm on both BBC One and ITV)

When corrected and pressed for an answer, he added: “We don’t watch television very much on Christmas Day.

“There is lots… Lots to do… I enjoy the presence of my family and friends around Christmas.

“Obviously, like everybody else does, and, I also visit the homeless shelter, either on Christmas Day, or the day before, to talk to, and listen to people’s lives, about how they could be made better with a government that cared for them.”

More Labour lies.
