The family of a 54-year-old man from Whitechapel in East London, last night expressed their joy and relief that he has finally shaken off the misguided, ludicrous belief that Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, would lead the party to victory at the next General Election.
According to his wife Mary, Mr Toby Dell, a street trader and lifelong Labour Party supporter, first began to believe in the controversial left-winger’s electability after Corbyn told a political rally that he wanted to renationalise the railways.
“He was unshakeable in his forlorn belief after that,” she told us. “The whole family have tried to make him see sense over these last months. We showed him photographs of the Traingate debacle, we played tapes of his pathetic performances at the despatch box during Prime Minister’s Question Time; we even presented him with irrefutable evidence that Corbyn is a misogynist and an anti-Semite, but nothing seemed to shake his belief.
“Then, this morning he came down for his breakfast and told me and the kids that we’d been right all along and that Corbyn is an unelectable, lying twat. We all just burst into tears and hugged him. It felt so good to have him back”
It is believed that Mr Dell finally emerged from his delusional state after he read in the paper that Corbyn had once been a frequent sexual partner of Shadow Home Secretary, Diane Abbott.
