Labour supporter Caitlin Moran goes back on her faith in Jeremy Corbyn
The writer admitted she had done better background checks before buying underwear than before voting for a leader.
Writer Caitlin Moran has said she regrets Jeremy Corbyn being voted as Labour leader and quipped that she did more research into a sports bra than she did the politician.
The broadcaster and columnist tweeted her views while local elections results showed that Labour had suffered major setbacks across the UK and a loss of well over 100 council seats.
A Labour supporter herself, she wrote…
As Labour collapses across the country, I can't think of anything I regret more than voting Jeremy Corbyn as leader. I'm so sorry, my kids.— Caitlin Moran (@caitlinmoran) May 5, 2017
"I'll vote for a leader who's more left-wing and less media-trained!" I thought - not bothering to find out what he was actually like.— Caitlin Moran (@caitlinmoran) May 5, 2017
Memo to me: really research the next person you vote for. Be honest - you did more research on your sports bra than you did on Corbyn.— Caitlin Moran (@caitlinmoran) May 5, 2017
And don't get me wrong - tits are important. A bad bounce has a life-time's comeback. But: Labour is dying. The right is the only voice.— Caitlin Moran (@caitlinmoran) May 5, 2017
Last summer, Caitlin had shared a similar sentiment, writing that she wished she had not voted for Jeremy, adding that “he seems incapable of working with people, or doing anything”.
