Britain’s right-wing press has set the attack dogs on the Labour party only a day before the general election.

Front pages scrutinised Jeremy Corbyn’s apparent links with jihadist organisations and claimed that London mayor Sadiq Khan ‘shared a platform’ with terrorists.

The Daily Mail splashed the dramatic headline ‘Apologists for terror’ on their front page, accusing Corbyn, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott of ‘befriending Britain’s enemies’.

Sadiq Khan was also criticised on the Daily Mail’s website – where they censured him for speaking on the same platform as Sajeel Shahid, a militant who is said to be friends with London Bridge terrorist Khuram Batt.

Elsewhere, the Telegraph claimed that Corbyn was monitored by undercover officers for ‘attempting to undermine democracy’ – with a special branch officer alleging that he was ‘deemed to be a subversive’.

Perhaps the most striking criticism came from The Sun, which ran with the bold headline ‘Jezza’s Jihadi Comrades’.

In their article the pro-Tory paper accused the Labour leader of delivering a speech attended by followers of hate preacher Anjem Chowdary.

The frenzied criticism comes ahead of tomorrow’s election – with polls predicting that the gap between Labour and the Conservatives has narrowed significantly over the General Election.

While estimates vary, most surveys agree that Theresa May’s massive majority enjoyed when she first announced the snap election has been slashed.
