Silence from the man himself, who could have shut speculation dawn very easily yesterday afternoon…

Quote of the Day

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
