THE affair between Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott was the most 70s thing that happened in the 70s, it has been claimed.

“They watched The Sweeney, agreeing it was crypto-fascist propaganda dictated by the military-industrial complex, while sharing a bottle of Mateus Rosé.
“And finally, once they’d completed foreplay by checking each other’s union cards, they went to bed between bri-nylon orange-and-brown CND patterned sheets.”
