There is no doubting Labour's green credentials, according to the party's MP Catherine West. After all, Jeremy Corbyn has a bike – and an allotment. Speaking on Sky News, West said of the Labour leader:

'He was green before the greens existed. He rode a bike. He's got an allotment. He will do both. He will bring social justice and a green revolution.'

Unfortunately when the Green's co-leader Jonathan Bartley tried to put his argument across it didn't go down well with West who accused him of 'mansplaining':

'Can you stop mansplaining? If you continue to mansplain I'll have to complain.'
