“The reason you go to a food bank is because you’re f***ing hungry and you haven’t got enough food,” he says. “That’s it. You don’t go there by choice. It’s kind of demeaning. If there were any alternative you would take it.

“There’s no compassion at all. I think Corbyn’s got it. I genuinely do, but he won’t get in.”
