    A Vice News journalist who is a Labour Party supporter and who voted for Jeremy Corbyn in the leadership election followed him around for six weeks filming. And unsurprisingly being up close to Corbyn he comes to the same conclusion that all sane people already have; he's completely incompetent.

    It also shows Corbyn to be extremely obsessed with himself (spending an inordinate amount of time signing glossy photographs of himself to send to his adoring fans) and an attention seeker (his own staff member sees he "loves the attention") while unctuously and greasily proclaiming how "humble" he is. He also becomes infuriated when someone writes something critical of him and mutters darkly about a conspiracy at the BBC to bring him down.

    Amazingly, Seumas Milne even claims that members of Corbyn's staff are leaking PMQs questions ahead of time to the Tories; an astonishing and completely implausible claim on its face but utterly consistent with the paranoia and bunker mentality that is prevalent in his office.

    Given the journalist who did this is a supporter this should have been a slam dunk PR-success for Corbyn. If even his own supporters start to question his competency when they get to know him in detail and up close, how on earth will he convince the country at a general election?

    I can't even begin to fathom what you're talking about. I suspect other people will be similarly in the dark.

    Perhaps you can elaborate a bit..?

    It's scary how much this reads like satire of various communist leaderships of the 60s/70s. You couldn't write this kind of comedy.

    I think Corbyn's an idiot, but I like the comedy he brings. And its nice to see less boisterous politicians, even if they have unbearably large egos
