Jezza’s resting on stolen laurels
I WATCHED Jeremy Corbyn’s new ad for the Labour Party – and it was two mins of my life I’ll never get back. My objection? Every single achievement he hailed – from the foundation of the NHS to the Good Friday Agreement via devolution – had nothing to do with him (such a common male syndrome there’s even a new word for it: ‘he-peating’ is when a woman has an idea and everyone ignores it, then a man repeats her exact same idea to rapturous acclaim). I want to see at least some scars on the Labour leader’s own back before his next emission, please.
PS. The new leader of Haringey Council is a Momentum fellow who declared himself ‘proud and humbled’ to be elected. Pah! I do wish winners everywhere just said ‘Thanks! I deserved this’ in their acceptance speeches.
Bafta winners tonight might take note.
