Jeremy Corbyn on The Andrew Marr Show.

Michael Heseltine has said that Jeremy Corbyn can afford to wait, as the Conservative Party crumbles in the wake of last week’s general election.

He said Labour would benefit from by-elections that would remove any remaining possibility of a Conservative government, and Brexit would sink Theresa May.

But can the Conservatives afford to make Mr Corbyn wait? Already they are trailing in the opinion polls, and a Tory attempt to negotiate Brexit will undoubtedly make this situation worse for them.

Meanwhile, Mr Corbyn has made a barnstorming appearance on The Andrew Marr Show, promising to put forward an alternative Queen’s Speech with Labour policies, saying headline Tory policies are now doomed, and reveling in the support of the nation’s young voters.

Here are the highlights of his interview, according to our friends on Twitter:

And the verdict:

Mr Heseltine is right – it is only a matter of time until Jeremy Corbyn becomes Prime Minister. And he can afford to wait?

But can the rest of us?

How much damage will the Tories try to inflict before giving up the ghost? And in how much of it will they succeed?
