Corbyn On The One Show [May. 31st, 2017|11:37 am]
Tony Grist
Put it this way: Jeremy Corbyn is a more interesting person than Theresa May. He appeared on The One Show yesterday and we learned that he likes trains and manhole covers, working on the allotment and making jam. So he's a geek (which I understand is cool these days) and a highly individual one. OK, lots of people like trains, but manhole covers? And how many people who obsess about peculiar aspects of our industrial heritage also make jam?

He has a streak of steel. The presenters had got hold of some childhood pictures of him and he was taken by surprise- and wanted to know who'd supplied them- I mean, really wanted to know- and one got the impression that if he found out who they were that person would be very, very sorry.

He's incorruptible, he's an idealist, he likes to keep his private life private (no spouse on the sofa to support him) and he has cold blue eyes. He can do conviviality but it only goes so far. Get on the wrong side of him, betray his trust and....

Think Robespierre...

Robespierre on a bike makes me smile. I'm fond of incorruptible, idealistic, strong politicians. Warm and cuddly means nothing when you are trying to direct policy.

The more I see of him, the more he impresses me. It's been said ad nauseam that he lacks leadership qualities but on last night's showing I think that's wrong. He's personable, intelligent and tough. What more do we need?

Slightly to my surprise, he's growing into the role of leader. He's even starting to win over my husband, who was extremely anti-Corbyn when he was first elected leader of the Labour party.

The election seems to have fired him up.
