The news man issued a classic non-denial denial

Channel 4 News anchor Jon Snow has moved to play down claims that he shouted “fuck the Tories” at Glastonbury.

But he did not quite deny joining in with revellers’ anti-Tory chants as he took selfies with them.

Snow is no stranger to making noise and was a keen participant in Global’s Make Some Noise Charity Day in 2015.

More recently, Snow made it clear he was enjoying hanging out at the festival where Jeremy Corbyn received a rock star welcome.

“Amazing to be amongst 200,000 at Glastonbury amid a real energy for a better politics,” tweeted Snow.



It later emerged that one fellow festival goer had posted a photo of the news man and tweeted about “having a dance with Jon Snow and hearing him shout fuck the tories”.

In response, Snow said he couldn’t remember much of what he got up to at the festival.

He declared in a statement: “After a day at Glastonbury, I can honestly say I have no recollection of what was chanted, sung or who I took over 1000 selfies with.”
