As Jonathan Walker has reported, “Conservative leader Theresa May attempted to turn the focus of the general election back on to Brexit by saying: ‘Jeremy Corbyn’s minders can put him in a smart blue suit for an interview with Jeremy Paxman, but with his position on Brexit, he will find himself alone and naked in the negotiating chamber with the European Union”.

Walker explains May’s discourteous tirade by saying that “It followed a difficult two weeks for Mrs. May, after she was accused of making a U-turn over plans to make some elderly people pay more for social care”.

And above are gathered all the EU’s socialist heads of state who will welcome Corbyn’s respectful, democratic approach to negotiations.
