An expletive-ridden rant in the Twitter feed of UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has indicated an affinity for Australian colloquialisms.
On Sunday night, “straya c***s” briefly appeared on Mr Corbyn’s account, but it may not have been an intentional public voicing of opinion.
About 9pm on Sunday (8am Monday AEST), Mr Corbyn’s Twitter was commandeered by an anonymous con who posted a series of profane tweets.
It started with “here we go … here we go … here we f***ing go”, followed with “Davey Cameron is a pie”, “f*** trident” and the Australian-themed quip.
They were quickly deleted, but had already managed to inspire a movement.

My last word. If Davey Cameron was indeed a pie, he would be one of those pies with no base. A stew with a pastry lid. Awful. — SimonNRicketts (@SimonNRicketts) January 10, 2016
