Jeremy Corbyn had a disastrous appearance on last nights celebrity Mastermind, failing to answer a single question out of 15 posed about his party’s stance on Brexit. Although Conservatives still accused the BBC of leftist bias after his general knowledge round contained 8 separate questions about allotments.
Corbyn passed on 14 of the Brexit themed questions and as John Humphreys said “I’ve started so I’ll finish.” on the 15th Corbyn mumbled “Please don’t…”
The performance spurred Labour deputy Tom Watson to renew calls for cross party co-operation and that party lines should be irrelevant with regards to Boris Johnson trying to force through a no-deal Brexit.
In response, Green Party insiders claimed they’d reached out to Corbyn on several occasions to discuss Brexit but he’d failed to settle on a location for the meeting. It’s understood Corbyn had previously issued the following statement “Should we remain in my office for the meeting… should we leave for a different restaurant? … leave… remain, it’s impossible to take a clear and understandable position either way.”
Watson’s statements stands to undermine Corbyn’s position who had previously ruled out a unity government even if it had the sole purpose of stopping a no-deal Brexit.
A leaked email from Labour headquarters showed an angry Corbyn reponse “… Johnson literally drove a bus around with lies printed in letters 4 feet tall… that Ruffle haired fuckwit seems determined to light his own farts over the Irish peace agreement and he literally said ‘fuck business!’… why am I getting such a hard time about a quiz show?”
The email continued “… and if you see Tom Watson, tell him to check for dog-shit in his office, that’ll make it a bigger surprise when I hit him with my car.”
