JEREMY Corbyn yesterday sensationally admitted millions of voters hate him – declaring himself the “Marmite” candidate.
The Labour boss conceded he is not to everybody’s taste when he was quizzed on why so many working class voters are deserting the party.
Bizarrely relishing in being divisive, he told a London press conference: “I think Marmite’s really good for you.
“Some people like it and some people don’t. I lead the party and I’m proud to lead the party.
“As Prime Minister, I want to bring our country together.”
He added: “That’s how it is with me, I’ve got a jar of Marmite in my cupboard to prove it.”
It came as the Labour boss tried to turn the pressure up on Boris Johnson by staging another dramatic reveal of secret government documents.
He unveiled a Treasury report he said shows there will be customs checks between Northern Ireland and Great Britain under Boris’ Brexit – putting a border down the Irish Sea.
He said: “It is there in black and white. It says there will be customs declarations, absolutely clearly, for trade going from Northern Ireland to Great Britain.”
But Tory sources furiously downplayed the document, insisting it was a “flash” and incomplete analysis of the deal.
And Boris hit back while on the campaign trail in Kent, branding the document’s claims “complete nonsense”.
The PM said: “There will be no checks from goods going from Great Britain to Northern Ireland because we are going to come out of the EU whole and entire and that was the objective we secured.
“And it’s a vast improvement on the original proposal which would indeed have carved out Northern Ireland and kept it in the EU for all sorts of purposes, we were able to do a fantastic deal for our country.”
Mr Corbyn also revealed Labour would give 16 and 17-year-olds the vote before they hold a second referendum – a move critics warn will skew the result to stop Brexit.
