I'm wondering if any of them have ever made a tweet or posting on social media that has done them any good.

As for jokes, I suppose there was Churchill's "in the morning I shall be sober..." gag, if it actually happened. Was pretty funny, to give the fat, racist cokehead some due.

Good point why aren't politicians good at telling jokes? they are masters of witty epigrams and smart one liners. Steven Pound fancied himself as a bit of a comedian and did some stand-up but shouldn't of. Even Bill Clinton was a bit wooden with jokes. Blair had a good sense of delivery for a gag. Farage I suppose if you like that kind of thing.

Which in this particular context is totally irrelevant. You never cease to amaze me with your effortless twattery.

It's a conundrum Red as to how terrible things get before you accept that Corbyn is doing a terrible job as Labour leader.
