Another by-product of the tightening polls is the ever increasing cockiness of Corbyn’s crew – starting with the man himself.
Corbyn was caught out when he said that he had considered how his cat, called El Gato, would get on with Larry the Number 10 cat. He must have been speaking to YouGov.
He was relaxed about the potential for feline friendship as he said El Gato has “socialist tendencies” as he “allows a stray cat to share his food”. Comrade Corbyn had been initially worried that his pet was “a bit of a Tory” due to his “disappointing individualism”.
Next Thursday, the British people have a purrfect opportunity to put this mad fantasy to bed once and for all.
