The internet and even Corbyn supporters are angry at Jeremy Corbyn for nominating former House of Commons speaker John Bercow and other senior Labour leaders for peerages. Other nominations that feature on Corbyn’s dissolution honours list are former deputy leader Tom Watson and Karie Murphy, the director of his Leader’s office.

The reason that people are angry at Corbyn is because in the past Corbyn has been reportedly highly critical of David Cameron and Theresa May for nominating his allies for peerage when now he is doing the exact same thing.

Social media users were not happy at all and they made their feelings known.
