Mr Corbyn is currently preparing for the general election and hoping the electorate will support his “radical” manifesto, despite widespread criticism over his spending intentions. Although the Conservatives still hold a comfortable lead in the polls, support for Labour has been gradually increasing throughout the election campaign. Some commentators have even compared it to Mr Corbyn’s surprise performance in 2017, after Theresa May called a snap general election.
He was expected to be ‘crushed’ by the electorate, but he won enough support to reduce the Conservative majority to a hung parliament and even forced Mrs May to ask the DUP to prop up her government.
Following the 2017 election, the Labour leader appeared on Good Morning Britain and appeared to be acting as “victor” – despite still sitting on the opposition benches.
The ITV presenter saw Mr Corbyn being interviewed and said: “You’ve had a good run but you didn’t win!”
Mr Morgan was referring to the clip where the Labour leader was asked about the Brexit negotiations.

Mr Corbyn had said: “They’re going to have to go ahead because Article 50 has been invoked.
“The government in office in 11 days’ times will have to conduct those Brexit negotiations.
“Our position is very clear, we want a jobs first Brexit and therefore the most important thing is the trade deal with Europe. I would have thought perhaps a good gesture from parliament would be to vote now to agree that all EU nationals can remain in Britain.”
He was also asked if the Brexit process should be delayed.
He responded: “That is not completely in Britain’s hands. That is the decision that has to be taken by the other parties in the negotiations.
