Of late, Channel 4 appears to be on a mission to rebrand itself as home of the Corbynista, with the broadcaster angling much of its coverage at those who backed the Labour leader in the snap election. But has Jon Snow taken things a step too far?

Mr S only asks after coming across the Twitter account of a Glastonbury reveller by the name of Daniel. Daniel has posted a picture of himself with the Channel 4 presenter. He says that he had a 'boss' time at Glastonbury – helped by the fact he got to have a dance with Snow, who Daniel alleges shouted 'f--- the Tories'.

Alas Jon Snow can neither confirm or deny this version of events. He tells Steerpike:

'After a day at Glastonbury I can honestly say I have no recollection of what was chanted, sung or who I took over 1000 selfies with.'

Still, either way, readers can be rest assured Snow is aware of the need for neutrality. Daniel claims that after the pair had enjoyed a 'little boogie', Snow said – 'sarcastically' – that he's neutral.
