Jeremy Corbyn has done a drug, according to a recent interview.
Six Tory leadership contenders have recently admitted to using drugs in their past, with the latest being Andrea Leadsom, who admitted yesterday to having smoked cannabis.
The revelations, presumably intended to make the career politicians seem more human to the electorate, evidently prompted Jeremy Corbyn to come clean about his past, too.
Corbyn, who is technically the leader of the Labour Party, is known for his reputation as an allotment owning, woolly jumper wearing, denuclearisation enthusiast.
However, that boring image could be about to be turned on its head with a revelation he made yesterday in ‘Gardeners World’ magazine.
“I must admit to having done drugs on a number of social occasions in the past” he said.
“And by ‘drugs’ I naturally mean caffeine. I have had it in both loose leaf and teabag form, and on one occasion I even had an espresso.
“I can only apologise to the Labour Party for my hedonistic lifestyle, and the burst of focus and productivity that the caffeine gave me when I took it.
“And I promise to never be that focused and driven again.”
