Jeremy Corbyn has famously said that he wants a 'kinder, gentler politics'. But it seems one of his close allies didn't get the message. Union leader Tosh McDonald took to the stage at Labour conference this morning to tell his fellow party members of just how much he hates Margaret Thatcher:

'I say this many times, it’s still true: I hated her. I wish I could be like Jeremy and rise above it, but I can’t. And I did hate her that much that I did set my alarm clock an hour earlier than I needed, just so I could hate her for an hour longer.'

Tosh by name, tosh by nature...
