Rumours emerging from the Labour party seem to indicate that Jeremy Corbyn is giving serious consideration to actually doing something.
If true it would be the first activity from the reclusive Labour leader since October when he gave a speech to several hundred people who agreed with him.
“Well look, it’s a busy time of the year,” said a Labour spokesman.
“You’ve got Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas shopping, then Christmas, and Jeremy got really into X-Factor this year.
“It’s really hard to find time to do politics with all that going on.”
What with Brexit, country-wide industrial action, Donald Trump, increased global terror attacks, and support for his own party at a historic low, it had been thought that the Labour leader might actually find himself rather busy at the moment.
“I think that’s a little unfair,” continued the spokesperson.
“Jeremy’s frightfully busy; he’s taking down the Christmas decorations, made a nice soup with the Christmas leftovers, and…um, oh, he’s had to catch up with Strictly on iPlayer because he was watching X-Factor.
“Busy, busy, busy.”
The spokesperson could not be certain of exactly what it is that Mr Corbyn is considering doing.
“I’m really not sure,” he said
“Possibly a leadership election? He really enjoys those.”
