Oh dear. Although the Labour party has tried to put on a united front since the snap election, the party remains divided when it comes to Jeremy Corbyn. So, Mr S was intrigued to hear Kerry McCarthy – the Labour MP and former shadow cabinet member – speak frankly about her preference on Labour leaders.

Asked on Pienaar’s Politics which Labour leader – out of Tony Blair and Jeremy Corbyn – she would like to be stuck an island with, McCarthy said… Blair:

JP: Kerry McCarthy, who would you choose to be marooned with – Tony Blair or Jeremy Corbyn?

KM: Oh God… hmm… I would probably actually go for Tony Blair… neither would be my ideal choice.

To add insult to injury, she then said Gordon Brown would be better than Blair. Mr S suspects McCarthy may be found in need of re-education…
