Corbyn lacks my likeability, says Amis

NOVELIST Martin Amis has claimed that Jeremy Corbyn just isn’t likeable in the way that he is.

Amis believes the Labour leader is under-educated, humourless and most importantly lacks the friendly charisma that the chirpy 90s writer has in spades.

Amis said: “I’m not one to brag, but everyone likes me. I’m just a warm presence.

“Likeability was actually a subject at my fancy school, and I excelled at it, much as I did at everything. I just light up a room with my friendly open face and happy-go-lucky everyman charm.

“I’m like the Fonz or a popular Disney character.”
