Since he became leader in 2015, Jeremy Corbyn has not exactly cultivated a sense that he’s top of any political situation.

But he reached new heights of incompetence when he was interviewed on Sky this morning. The Labour leader was asked by Sophy Ridge if he’d actually read the Prime Minister’s draft Withdrawal Agreement which was released four days ago, and which he now says does not meet the needs of the country.

Unsurprisingly, Corbyn had to admit that he had not found the time (no doubt he’s been busy at the allotment), admitting:

‘I’ve read a lot of it, not every last word’

He was then asked an altogether simpler question: which way would he vote if there was a second Brexit referendum?

To which he could only reply:

‘Well I don’t know how I’m going to vote, what the options would be at that time’

Inspiring stuff from the leader of the opposition.
