I don’t think my low opinion of Jeremy Corbyn will come as any surprise to my regular reader but frankly even though I think the man is a total arsehole today’s debacle on Virgin Trains shows a level of ineptitude that was staggering even by his standards!
Seems our Jezza was filming himself on a Virgin train to Nottingham where he couldn’t get a seat in order to make a case for renationaling the railways. There wasn’t a seat to be had – except for all the ones he was filmed walking past on the train’s CCTV cameras and the ones he and his entourage settled into after he’d made his video…
Now we all know that politicians are bloody liars, but we do expect them to show a little more professionalism about it.
But the piece de resistance was the quote from one of his ‘supporters’ who tried to tell us that the seats were actually occupied by children who were too small to be seen on the video!
