Corbyn's a Loser (26/02/17)

Team Corbyn has been spinning furiously that his party's terrible showing in the polls has nothing to do with the Labour leader.

Strangely, Labour Baroness Shami Chakrabarti (an unelected peer) appeared on the BBC's Andrew Marr show earlier today to explain the disaster in Copeland and help the party reconnect with its working class roots.

After all Jeremy has a 'big mandate', as he's fond of reminding everyone, but  still the voters remain completely unimpressed.

But if you ask me, Jezza's a political albatross around his party's neck.
