Not even the 20-year age gap between him and his current squeeze has tripped him up in the court of public opinion. His looks aren’t conventional and yet women seem to find our potential new prime minister unfeasibly attractive. I don’t get it, personally. But maybe I’m in the minority. When an old schoolfriend of mine met him at a business event recently she posted pictures of herself on Facebook hugging him. He clearly had her completely captivated. But as he could be the next leader of our country, should we not think a little more closely about his private life? After all, can we really trust a man who has traded in not one but two wives for newer models? I’m not talking about Boris … [Read more...] about Forget Boris. What about Jeremy Corbyn’s womanising?

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he is determined to make youth provision a statutory duty for local authorities as he tried his hand at archery at an activity centre for teenagers. Mr Corbyn showed a marked improvement as he was shown how to use a bow at the Sunnyvale Fishery and Outdoor Activity Centre in Hipperholme, near Halifax, West Yorkshire, on Monday. After half-a-dozen wayward efforts, the Leader of the Opposition managed a shot in the black ring and then quit while he was ahead after landing a shot in the red. He then moved on to the watersports area and talked to youngsters after donning a lifejacket and a helmet to sit in a canoe. But he did not launch on to the lake. Mr Corbyn, who was visiting with shadow home secretary Diane Abbott and Halifax MP Holly Lynch, said he was impressed with the centre, which is open to children across the the district and aims to provide an alternative path for youngsters from a life of criminal offending. After speaking to a number of … [Read more...] about Jeremy Corbyn canoes on dry land and fires off arrows on visit to promote youth activity funding

A third of Labour MPs last night told Jeremy Corbyn to extract the promise of a second EU referendum from Theresa May . A bombshell letter with 80 signatures threatened to sabotage the chance of the two leaders’ Brexit talks succeeding. The MPs, including Shadow Treasury ministers Clive Lewis and Anneliese Dodds, told Mr Corbyn a referendum was their “bottom line”. The two leaders have given themselves 48 hours to strike a deal to break the deadlock. They need a joint declaration to put before the EU’s 27 leaders in advance of the Brussels summit on Wednesday. Talks stalled on Friday but the two negotiating teams hope to get them restarted today. Mr Corbyn, who was helping local election activists campaign in Plymouth yesterday, wants a permanent customs union and single market access tagged onto any deal. He said: “We’ve set all that out. I haven’t noticed any great change in the Government’s position so far. I’m waiting to see … [Read more...] about Third of Labour MPs pile pressure on Jeremy Corbyn to secure second referendum
PHILIP Hammond today urged Theresa May to listen to Jeremy Corbyn over Brexit as crunch national unity talks collapsed overnight. The pro-EU Chancellor said the Government should go into discussions with Labour with "an open mind" to hash out a Brexit deal. It comes after the talks collapsed last night with no sign of a breakthrough and Labour blamed Mrs May for refusing to budge. In a move that will anger Brexiteers, the pro-EU Chancellor urged the PM to have "no red lines" when it came to hammering out a compromise. At a meeting of EU finance ministers in Bucharest, he said: "We should be open to listen to suggestions that others have made. "Some people in the Labour Party are making other suggestions to us, of course we have to be prepared to discuss them. "Our approach to these discussions with Labour is that we have no red lines, we will go into these talks with an open mind and discuss everything with them in a constructive fashion." The intervention will fuel fears the prominent … [Read more...] about Philip Hammond tells Theresa May to listen to Jeremy Corbyn over Brexit as Remainer Chancellor says ‘no red lines’ in Labour talks
