‘How dare you!’ - Anger as Piers Corbyn protests outside court where Sarah Everard’s killer Wayne Couzens was sentenced

There were angry scenes in central London this afternoon after conspiracy theorist, Piers Corbyn, and a small group of protesters campaigned against Covid-19 lockdown measures outside the court where former Met police officer, Wayne Couzens, was receiving a full life sentence for the kidnap, rape and murder of 33 year-old Sarah Everard in March.

Mr. Corbyn, who heckled his own brother, Jeremy Corbyn, at the Labour Party Conference in Brighton a few days ago, was widely condemned for his actions outside the Old Bailey.

One woman responded to Mr. Corbyn’s appearance outside the court by shouting “how dare you hijack Sarah’s death for your own cause.”

LBC journalist, Matthew Thompson, was outside the court when the incident occurred and he described it as “staggeringly inappropriate”.

Mr. Corbyn was involved in a similar incident at a vigil held in memory of Sarah Everard back in March.

The general public used social media to convey their sense of anger at what Mr. Corbyn had done.

“Shame on you Piers Corbyn, shame on you. How dare you,” tweeted one woman.

Another woman described Mr. Corbyn as “vile” and said his actions were “beyond despicable”.

“Piers Corbyn shows he has no respect for anyone or anything ,” tweeted the woman.

“To protest outside the court where the judge is sentencing that thing for murdering Sarah is beyond despicable .

“He is vile,” she added.
