We may have done this before.

He tweeted...
Jeremy Corbyn

@leftoutside I believe that homeo-meds works for some ppl and that it compliments 'convential' meds. they both come from organic matter..

Surely he is making the same mistake that lots of people seem to do - confusing herbal medicine with homeopathy?
Lumping together herbal medicine with homeopathy gives the former practice the same air of impossibility and detracts from the demonstrated benefits and future promise of using plants as a source of novel therapeutic molecules.

He might well be - either way it's not a very encouraging tweet.

But he's not as bad as his brother...

I agree that it was not an encouraging position, and that he was simply confusing herbal and homeopathy as so many people do.

But would also point out that the tweet if from 2011. He was corrected by umpteen people at the time and hasn't made a public statement on the subject since then.

This is yet another example of trawling back through everything that Corbyn has ever said or done to try to scrape together as much dirt as Theresa May has created for herself in the last week alone.
