A new day and a new bit of nonsense – Jeremy Corbyn has decided he is the leader of the Remain side in the House of Commons – he wants to be their Prime Minister and is willing to lead a government of National Unity. Now if you think that Boris Johnson is being disingenuous about Brexit then this is right up their with £350m a week for the NHS. Corbyn has always been hostile to the European Union which is a legitimate position to take – just ask the Brexiteers so for him to suddenly offer to lead this new potential government is just nonsense and of course Corbyn knows this. He also knows that he is also one of the divisive people in British politics at the moment and so the chances of anyone beyond his supporters believing anything he says are very small indeed.
Still it got him some nice column inches and people like me, not that I count, writing about him.
