I got more of a feeling for him as a person from last night's show than I have from all the press/TV coverage since he was elected leader of the Labour Party! A courageous move on his part to appear on the show, given that he doesn't seem to do things just for the PR.

I agree. And I was glad he got to answer some questions people have thrown around about him lately too.

I didn't think he came across too well tbh.I am a labour supporter and usually like what he has to say but thought he was too overly serious for the show which surprised me as I thought he would have more of a sense of humour than that

I liked the way he managed to be succinctly serious about the serious issues , dodge the silly stuff about Cameron and Blair (whilst making it abundantly clear what his opinions on them were) and indulge himself in the occasional chuckle. When Nick Clegg did the show he threw himself into it rather too much.

I, too, am a Labour supporter, which may have biased my view.

I thought Nick clegg came across really well. Jeremy Corbyn, not as well. He was too serious and too guarded.

I thought he took part really well. The fur coated arrival, the end skit with the chase, and the constant piss taking over the drain covers.

Yet maintained seriousness over the important stuff.

Pretty damn perfect really. Russell Crowe was really nice to him too.

I agree baboon, I think he badly misjudged the tone of the show and came across as a bit of a boring personality free zone. I thought Nick Clegg was miles better last year.
