The former Labor leader was recently forced to apologize after breaking the six coronavirus rule when he was pictured attending a dinner party with nine guests. Now he has been pictured at a memorial service in honor of Occupy Wall Street founder David Graeber which was attended by a crowd of around 100.

The rules to tackle the COVID-19 crisis say no more than 30 people should attend memorials and funerals.But Mr Corbyn was pictured at the ‘Carnival of the Anarchists’ in Notting Hill, west London, which featured live music and at times did not wear a mask to speak to the organizer and the widow of Mr. Graeber, Nika Dubrovniksky.

A spokesperson for the carnival said: “Organizers have carried out COVID risk assessments, had stewards to enforce them and have been in contact with authorities.”

A spokesperson for Westway Trust, a local charity in charge of Portobello Green, said he had given permission for the memorial carnival to take place.

A Trust source told the Daily Mail events had to comply with the rules to fight the coronavirus crisis.

It comes after the MP for Islington North was spotted at a house party with nine guests in total, including his wife Laura Alvarez, 51, in what is a flagrant violation of current ” rule of six ”.
