Jezza and Diane Were Lovers

Last month, Guido readers in the Sun on Sunday learnt of a past relationship between Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott. Put your breakfast away – there was even talk of a “half hour” romp with an unnamed naked man in a Cotswold field:

“Abbott, who told SHE magazine in 1985 that her “finest half hour” was romping with a naked man in a Cotswold field, has been described as a “long-time friend” of her “very close” ally Mr Corbyn. The pair do not deny the Westminster legend of their romantic trip across Soviet East Germany on a motorbike.”

Today’s Times confirms Jezza and Diane had a “brief fling“, including a holiday together:

“Friends said that Mr Corbyn and Ms Abbott began their relationship in the late 1970s when the newly elected Labour leader was a councillor in Haringey, north London. He was separated from his first wife, Jane Chapman, a fellow Labour councillor, whom he had married in 1974.

A party colleague of Mr Corbyn and his then-wife said Ms Chapman had hoped they would be reconciled but believed his burgeoning relationship with Ms Abbott, who was four years younger than her husband, made their divorce inevitable.”
