“I’m not going anywhere”, says Corbyn, accurately

author avatar by 7 years ago

Jeremy Corbyn has accurately announced that he’s not going anywhere today.

The comments followed a challenge to his leadership, but come loaded with a poignant irony he appears blissfully unaware of.

The double meaning inherent in saying that he’s going absolutely nowhere also appears to have sailed straight over his supporters heads.

Corbyn is going nowhere so quickly that literally hundreds of Labour MPs are understood to be thinking their career could gain momentum if they defected to other parties, or just got a job flipping burgers.

“Jeremy wasn’t going anywhere before the challenge and he’s not going anywhere now,” Labour Party spokesman Simon Williams told us.

“Why are you laughing? What’s funny about saying that Corbyn and the movement which created him is going nowhere?

“Why is tea coming out of your nose?”
