Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn arrived in Cardiff this afternoon and announced to the waiting crowds that he’d managed to get a seat on the train on the way down.
Mr Corbyn struggles to find available seats on trains, even when they are empty.
He told crowds in Whitchurch:
“Our Prime Minister has called a snap election and now is the time for us to tell her what we really think about getting seats on trains. On the way here, I was once again sat on the floor of the train. I couldn’t even take my sandals off because everyone kept tripping over me. In the end, one of my bouncers managed to throw and old granny out of her seat and I sat there until I got to Cardiff. As luck would have it, the old granny had just bought a bacon bap and a coffee from the buffet car and it was very kind of her to leave it for me. I was very careful not to eat it like Miliband did as I know what these photographers are like.”
Mr Corbyn hopes to become the first Prime Minister in British history to have a beard.
