JEREMY Corbyn has backed Andrea Leadsom to be Tory leader on the grounds that unelectable radicals should stick together.
The Labour leader believes that a straight choice between two fringe politicians catapulted into frontline politics by extremists is exactly what Britain deserves.
He said: “We may be very different on the surface – she believes that you can spot career criminals as toddlers, I think prison should be abolished – but we actually have a lot in common.
“We both hate our own parties, we’re both planning political re-education camps for the public, neither of us will relinquish our grip on power for anything short of a military coup, it’s uncanny.”
Leadsom agreed: “You know those scenes in thrillers when the deranged, obsessive cop finally confronts the serial killer and he says ‘You and I, we’re the same?’
“That is so me and Jeremy.”
