And now the Tory press is frothing about who Comrade Corbyn shagged 41 years ago..what a pathetic country

So what. Jeremy Corbyn was newly single. Diane Abbott was single. It was 1974, a lifetime ago. Yet the Tory press is in a frenzy revealing details of what appears to have been a brief affair. So bloody what?

Clearly the Tory press has known about this for a while and has been saving it for the “right time”.

Personally I have rather more interest about who exactly the then Tory leader Mr Edward Heath was bedding at the time. His trips to Jersey on his yacht are – arguably – of greater national concern than Comrade Corbyn entertaining Ms Abbott on a romantic tour of the tractor factories of Eastern Europe. The Tory and mainstream press seem rather less concerned with Heath's sexual adventures.

Pathetic is a word that springs to mind. Boring and banal are two others. What a pathetic country we have become.
