JEREMY Corbyn took ages in the Commons canteen as he pondered aloud whether to go for the pasta bake or the vegetarian chili.
A lengthy queue, many of them his own MPs, grew increasingly furious as he mulled the decision, went into a huddle with his advisers before ultimately deciding to go for the chili.
He then changed his mind as he reconsidered the merits of the pasta bake ‘because the cheese looks nice’.
Corbyn said that he would not come to a final decision until he had issued a grassroots consultation with the party membership.
This led to further delays as he tried to put out a tweet using his Nokia phone.
As levels of exasperation in the queue became intolerable, the Labour leader then asked the cashier if he could pay by cheque.
