British Prime Minister David Cameron has branded the country’s new opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn as a “threat to national security.”

Cameron made the claim in a Sunday tweet, a day after Corbyn was elected the new Labour chief. The British premier said the Islington MP would undermine the UK's defenses. 

Cameron’s attack on Labour follows a similar statement by UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon on Saturday, where he described the opposition party as “now a serious risk to our nation's security, our economy's security and your family's security.”

In this episode of Comment we ask our viewers about Jeremy Corbyn's victory in the Labour elections and the reaction by British statesmen on his landslide victory in the elections.
