Lily Allen launches a Twitter tirade after Boris Johnson’s victory and accuses the public voting for ‘kids to die with no healthcare and less brown people’
- The singer is a staunch Corbynista and has been batting for Labour this election
- She said the that ‘unchecked bespoke propaganda’ had undermined election
- Came after she ‘cried’ after watching Jeremy Corbyn’s radical manifesto launch
Lily Allen has launched an extraordinary attack on the Corbyn-rejecting British public by claiming they handed Boris Johnson a majority for diabolical reasons.
The pop star, who has been singing Labour’s praises throughout the campaign, suggested Conservative supporters voted for ‘kids to die with no healthcare.’
She also implied their motives for swinging behind the Tories were to have ‘less brown people’ in the UK.
After the exit poll predicted Labour’s worst performance at the ballot box since the 1930s, the 34-year-old defiantly tweeted: ‘Still holding out for a Labour majority’.
But as the party’s Red Wall began to crumble and it became clear the party were doomed, she began unloading a spool of anti-Conservative tweets.
The musician also re-tweeted a string of posts slamming the overwhelming majority of voters who did not swing cast ballots for Mr Corbyn

Allen retweeted a post which read: ‘Vote for your kids to die with no healthcare and less brown ppl but the joke is capitalism needs cheap foreign workers to exploit so will NEVER reduce immigration so jokes on.’
She followed this up by suggesting the integrity of the election had been undermined by right-wing propaganda.
The 34-year-old wrote: ‘Unchecked targeted bespoke propaganda. We need to start taking this seriously.’
Allen then responded to accusations of being one-sided by saying: ‘The left don’t have the resources of the right.’
When one user asked Allen if she was ok – following the tirade of tweets – she snapped back: ‘Yes, I am fine, it’s not me you should be worrying about.’
She also exploded into a sweary outburst when someone suggested that a millionaire should not be lecturing voters.
Earlier today, she pleaded with her five million Twitter followers to flock to the polls for Mr Corbyn.

She wrote: ‘Please please vote Labour today. Things won’t get better under Tory rule.’
Allen grabbed headlines earlier in the campaign when she posted a video of herself supposedly crying at Labour’s manifesto.
With tears streaming down her cheeks, the singer tweeted a clip of herself struggling to contain her emotions after watching Jeremy Corbyn set out his eye wateringly expensive plans for government.
It came despite many of the proposals unveiled by the hard Left leader being aimed at taking money from well-off people like herself, including large increases in tax.
Her voice cracking, she dabbed at her eyes with immaculately manicured hands and said: ‘Guys I’ve just watched the Labour manifesto. I think it’s the best manifesto I’ve ever seen.’
Ms Allen, whose fortune has been estimated at as much as £15million, filmed the post on TikTok – a viral video-editing platform – leading most viewers to conclude that the ‘tears’ may have been faked using a filter.
But it confused many of her 5.5million followers, who were left baffled whether or not she was being sarcastic or genuinely felt so strongly about Mr Corbyn’s blueprint for Britain.
In recent years, the Grammy-winner has turned to political activism and offered her backing to the left-wing Labour leader, who today published his strategy for overhauling public services by hitting the rich hard.
