Jeremy Corbyn’s mystery self-build project is really coming on
They say a week is a long time in politics, but in a month it seems you can get quite a bit done.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was spotted on the election trail at the start of June mallet in hand laying the first bricks in what must be a side project.
Now, just over a month later he is waist-high in bricks and seemingly a deft hand with the trowel.
In the beginning…
Corbyn was never going to be able to do back-breaking work in that pose. He’d soon have to change his ways.
He soon got more comfortable
Before long he was talking about gauging trowels, line blocks and pointing trowels.
And look at him now
He’s lost the suit jacket and rolled his sleeves up. That brick is now as light as a feather to JC.
A bit of cement doesn’t bother him
Corbyn is also clearly working the hi-vis look.
He’s only too happy to pass on his new-found expertise
Even if some people prefer to check out How To vids on YouTube
He’ll have that wall finished in no time
But nothing competes with Boris Johnson’s love of bricks
Boris carries that one around with him for good luck.
