Catholics are normally very strict about only communicants receiving the sacraments. This really surprises me that he wasn't turned away.

Catholics (and Eastern Orthodox Christians) have a strict law that only people who are in communion with the Church can receive Holy Communion. In other words, only those who are united in the same beliefs — the seven sacraments, the authority of the pope, and the teachings in the Catechism of the Catholic Church — are allowed to receive Holy Communion.

You are quite right, W, and I apologise for not adding the link to the story which I have now rectified. It's from the DT but it is also reported in the New Statesman!

"Why am I not surprised?!"

Just a guess, but because you would assume that in any circumstance?

No, Bob, because the thrice married man has never in his entire political career ever exhibited even a trace of Catholicism.

Maybe Corbyn is a Cafeteria Catholic?

Sounds like Pelosi and Biden. Both should be refused communion but the Church just looks the other way.
