      Christ, doesn't matter if he uses a stairlift or can run a mile in about 3 minutes, it's about words and deeds. So far he has been found wanting when the path to becoming prime minister should never be more straight forward

      Defeated a sitting governments by 2 of the heaviest ever margins

      Successfully brought a contempt of Parliament vote against government for the first time ever.

      Defeated a finance bill for the first time in decades.

      Voted down (multiple times) a Brexit "deal" which only benefits the richest.
      Voted down "no deal" option.

      Yes indeed, deeds do mean something for those who can see them, and he's now on his 3 rd Tory PM in 3 years.

      Which he can't claim any credit for at all. Keep up the delusion. The tories quite capable of destroying themselves without any help.

      Another thing Corbyn should do, if he ever gets in, is to stop giving MP's knighthoods.This power has been abused by both parties. Tories more than Labour.It should be a rule than no sitting MP will be eligible for a knighthood or a Dame or any of the various other awards.

      Some of them use their staus as an MP to earn more money.Not saying they don't work hard but their reward should be the honour of being elected by their peers and doing their public duty.

      No delusion.
      Those are facts.
      Name an opposition PM who has equalled or bettered his achievements.

      People seem to think tht MP's separate on party lines, and never communicate with the opposition.
      I can assure you this is not the case.
      MP's speak to each other constantly.
      There are lines of communication open all the way up to the leaders office.
      Part of politics is getting your opponents to vote gainst their own whip.
      Corbyn has achieved this, and done so on a Finance Bill.
      If you don't know how rare that is, look it up.
      Same with the Contempt of Parliament charge, and the defeats of May's various "Brexit" bills.

      They don't just rock up at vote time and obey the whip.
      There are always negotiations behind the scenes.

      Then we have the fact of the Fixed term Parliament.
      Not to mention the most turbulent political landscape any of us will ever see, with 2 entrenched sides and very little movement between them.

      Looking at politics today in anything other than a different way to that which has been done before is a mistake.
      There has been nothing like this in any of our lifetimes, and we won't see anything like it again.
