All Corbyn had to do was to be gracious, but he couldn’t keep it up

All Jeremy Corbyn had to do was to say something generous about Theresa May and ask a gently sceptical question about what she thinks of Boris Johnson.

So it came as some surprise when the Labour leader said something forgiving about the prime minister – “I hope she has a marginally more relaxing time” – and hoped that she would join him in “opposing the reckless plans of her successor”.

But that wasn’t his question. It was just a preamble to a graceless assault on May’s record on child and pensioner poverty, violent crime, NHS waiting times, school class sizes, homelessness and food banks.

I know Corbyn’s appeal to his supporters is built on being an uncompromising Tory-hater who doesn’t observe the niceties........
