Oh dear. Given that Jeremy Corbyn is reported to have told Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis this summer that he would be in Downing Street by Christmas, time is running out for the Labour leader. Perhaps that’s why he has downgraded his prediction to a definitely maybe.

Grazia – the weekly glossy – has snagged the Labour leader’s first interview with a women’s magazine. In the interview, Corbyn strikes a hopeful tone as he predicts ‘there will probably be another election in the next 12 months’  and he ‘will probably win’: ‘I’m ready to be Prime Minister tomorrow.’

With two polls putting the Conservatives ahead of Labour for the first time since the snap election, is Comrade Corbyn beginning to have doubts?
