Jeremy Corbyn was accused of using the language of Osama bin Laden tonight after the Labour leader blamed Donald for = the deadly terror attack in London Bridge.

Mr Corbyn ignored pleas to avoid politicising the atrocity to tear into the US president hours before he is due to arrive in the UK for a Nato summit.

A Labour election attack video posted on Twitter this afternoon uses an image of Friday's bloody carnage, which left two innocent people dead

It shows flowers beside a roadsign in the capital, to a soundtrack of Mr Corbyn condemning Western wars and emotional music.

Donald 's itenary for three-day UK visit

Tonight: Mr is due to land at an airport in London

Tomorrow: Mr will attend a reception at Buckingham Palace with the Queen to welcome Nato leaders

Wednesday: Nato summit takes place at the Grove Hotel, near Watford

The tweet has the message: 'It's time for Britain to stop clinging on to Donald 's coat-tails.' 

It came despite complaints that both main parties have been exploiting the deadly attack ahead of Mr 's expected arrival in the UK this evening for a Nato summit. 

Ex-Labour MP John Woodcock said: 'By saying Britain only has itself to blame for the London Bridge terror attack, Jeremy Corbyn once again side with the enemies of the UK rather standing up for British citizens.

'This sick anti-west propaganda ignores the fact that scores of countries that had nothing to do with the Iraq war are targeted by Islamists - it is exactly the kind of thing you'd expect from Osama bin Laden not a man who wants the keys to Downing Street. 

'Britain will be less safe if we let Corbyn Labour's Jihadi apologists take over the country.'

Tories also reacted with fury to the online video posted to Mr Corbyn's 2.2million Twitter followers.

Morcombe and Lunesgate candidate David Morris said it was 'appalling behaviour especially degrading to our closest allies.'

'This is from a man who travels thousands of miles and places flowers on terrorists graves then... forgets he has done it,' he added.

'He is not fit to be even considered to visit Number 10, never mind be a potential occupant of it.' 

Boris Johnson has defended launching a crackdown on the treatment of convicted terrorists after the rampage by 28-year-old Usman Khan, who was out of prison on licence.

Former University of Cambridge students Saskia Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25, were fatally stabbed during a prisoner rehabilitation event on Friday. 

In a searing rebuke, Mr Merritt's father David, an estates manager at a sixth form college and Labour activist, said last night: 'Don't use my son's death, and his and his colleague's photos - to promote your vile propaganda.

'Jack stood against everything you stand for - hatred, division, ignorance.' 

David Merritt, who describes himself on Twitter as a 'pragmatic left-leaning atheist', has been repeatedly retweeting messages urging politicians against swingeing reactions to the London Bridge attack. 

The family of Mr Merritt, from Cottenham, Cambridgeshire, asked yesterday that his death not be used to justify introducing 'even more draconian sentences' on offenders in a heartfelt tribute. 

Khan was on licence and wearing an electronic monitoring tag when he launched the attack, which injured three others, after he was invited to the prisoner rehabilitation conference on Friday afternoon.

'It's my job to keep people safe': Boris Johnson defies fury of father of London Bridge terror attack victim

Boris Johnson today denied exploiting the London Bridge terror attack despite a a backlash from the father of one of the victims.

The Prime Minister defended launching a crackdown on the treatment of convicted terrorists after 28-year-old Usman Khan went on a rampage while out of prison on licence. 

Speaking to reporters in Southampton this afternoon, the PM rejected the idea that his action was a knee-jerk response.

'Look at my 2012 manifesto on crime ... I've campaigned for a long time for longer sentences for serious and violent offenders,' he said.

Mr Johnson said it was 'probably clear from the outset' that Khan was 'too tough to crack' when it came to rehabilitation.

'What I'm saying is our job is to keep the public safe and that's what we want to do,' he added.

The event was organised held by Learning Together, a programme associated with Cambridge University's Institute of Criminology.

The attack has prompted the Ministry of Justice to review the licence conditions of every convicted terrorist released from prison, which Mr Johnson told the BBC's Andrew Marr show yesterday said was 'probably about 74' people.

Mr Johnson has vowed to take steps to ensure people are not released early when they commit serious offences.

Mr Corbyn also made a speech on the terrorism threat yesterday, saying Western aggression and austerity was responsible for fuelling the problems, and convicted terrorists should 'not necessarily' serve their full sentences. 

The election video posted on Twitter today includes footage of his speech, interspersed with images including that of the memorial at London Bridge.

The Labour leader slammed Britain for its 'failed' wars, and branded Mr Johnson the 'world's leading sycophant' towards the US president.

Corbyn says terrorists should serve 'significant proportion' of sentences 

Jeremy Corbyn is under pressure today over his suggestion that convicted terrorists should 'not necessarily' serve their whole prison sentences. 

Pressed during a campaign event at London's Finsbury Park station over whether released terror convicts should be reassessed and serve their full sentences, the Labour leader said it is 'quite right to look at every case'.

He said: 'I think terrorists should be sentenced, as they are, and they should be released as and when they have completed a significant proportion of their sentence and they've undergone rehabilitation and they are considered safe to the public as a whole. 

'I do think that continuing with the process allows people to be released ahead of final complete of their sentence if they've been rehabilitated and they have been suitably assessed and they are very strictly monitored when they come out - I think that must be the correct way of doing things. 

'There are enormous questions to be learned from this terrible event that happened last week and that is, what happened in the prison with this particular individual, what assessment was made of his psychological condition before he was released and also what supervision and monitoring he was under after coming out?' 

He said cuts to public services 'can lead to missed chances to intervene in the lives of people who go on to commit absolutely inexcusable acts'.
