In remarks delivered Sunday responding to the latest deadly attack in London, Jeremy Corbyn shattered the silence around Saudi Arabia's role in fuelling extremism.

Our democratic values must be maintained. We must resist Islamophobia and division and turn out on June 8 united in our determination to show our democracy is strong. And, yes, we do need to have some difficult conversations starting with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf that have funded and fuelled extremist ideology. It is no good Theresa May suppressing a report into the foreign funding of extremist groups. We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to these terror networks, including Isis, here and in the Middle East.

No wonder most corporate media outlets don't want to show you the actual speech. Watch it for yourself below.
