Video: Junior Bake-off winner Nikki Lilly interviews Jeremy Corbyn on jam, tracksuits and more

The CBBC channel has published an interview by Junior Bake-off winner Nikki Lilly with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, in which she quizzes him about his school days, childhood pets, jam-making, spud preferences – and why he’s not allowed out in his tracksuit any more – before feeding him some of her scones.

Ms Lilly also interviewed Theresa May last month. To see the contrast between Corbyn’s easy humanity and the Maybot’s performance, watch that interview here.

  1. Corbyn is very comfortable when communicating with people. I loved him sharing Nikki’s scones and eating them with his home made jam. His humanity and empathy are two of many reasons why #IStandByJeremyCorbyn.

    1. When May tries to fake empathy you can see the cogs whirring as she calculates every word and facial expression – there are noticeable delays of a few milliseconds in her ‘reactions’ as she searches for the response a strong-and-stable-yet-caring human being would make.

      There might be an actual person behind that contrived, shallow facade but I suspect that after so long she daren’t even let her mirror see anything but the mask.
