ANOTHER week, another Donald Trump Twitter controversy.

This time he's retweeted a series of videos claiming to show violence by Muslims by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of far-right organisation Britain First - you know, the one which posts those 'respect the troops!' messages on Facebook which that auntie you don't really speak to keeps liking.

So we live in a world where the leader of the free world sees some inflammatory videos on Twitter posted by someone he's never heard of, takes it at face value and retweets them to 43.6 million people.

Would he have done that if he'd known the videos didn't actually show violence by Muslims?

Would he have pressed retweet if he knew Jayda Fransen was convicted last November of religiously aggravated harassment for abusing at a Muslim woman in a hijab, and is currently facing another four charges of causing religiously aggravated harassment and will also appear in court in Northern Ireland next month charged with using threatening and abusive language?

Surely that's not the sort of thing the leader of the free world is prepared to advocate?

It would almost be funny if we weren't talking about the man with the nuclear codes.

l It's been a weird year for Jeremy Corbyn.

At the start of 2017 his position as Labour leader might have been a bit more secure than it had been previously, but his chances of moving into Number 10 still seemed about as likely as the proverbial flying pig.

One ill-advised snap election later and all of a sudden he's become the political force his supporters always claimed he could be.

Politically this couldn't be better for Labour, which has found itself with a leader people are prepared take seriously for the first time since the late 1990s.

But what about hipster poster boy Jezza?

This time last year it would have been unthinkable that the the man who had to be told to wear a tie in Parliament and described his hobby of collecting manhole covers as "zany" would appear in a snappy suit on the cover of QC airbrushed almost beyond all recognition.

Yet that's just where we are today.

It doesn't take much to appear to be more interesting than Theresa May, but Jezza should be careful of believing his own hype.

Surely just how different he seems from the slick, over-produced world of politics is part of his charm?

But now it looks like he's just falling into the same old Cool Britannia cliches which may have made Tony Blair electable, but didn't serve him too well in the long run.

I hope he's enjoying those chants of "Oh, Jeremy Corbyn", because if he carries along this route they'll be fading away before too long.
