Time for another update from the socialist paradise of Venezuela, where things aren’t looking too swell. The South American state, beloved of Owen, Diane, Seumas, Jezza et al, is suffering such hyper-inflation that it is having to fly in planeloads of increasingly worthless money to prop up its tanking economy.

What was that Corbyn said only last year?

Hala Jez, hala Nicolas!
