In what appears to be one of the most unwelcome trends of modern times, the leader of one of the UK’s major political parties has indulged in a spot of terrible dancing.
Jeremy Corbyn was filmed backstage at an awards ceremony on Monday night being gently coerced into doing some “flossing” alongside singer Olly Murs and a youngster. The result was a little bit painful.
Sky News weather presenter, Nazaneen Ghaffar, said it reminded her a bit of Mr Bean.

And if you want to know how the dance should be done, Laura Tobin helpfully demonstrated.

Now the question “who is the better dancer – Corbyn or Theresa May?” can enter the annals of modern British history alongside such gems as “should we leave the EU” and “do British restaurants serve anything other than porridge and boiled mutton?”.
Anyway, in order to answer this you’ll have to be reminded of Theresa May’s ABBA offering.
Here it is:
