Labour candidate Paul Flynn has told talkRADIO that it will be ok if Jeremy Corbyn becomes the Prime Minister, as he won't be able to do what he wants.

The Labour leader is launching his campaign today, and Flynn told Julia Hartley-Brewer that he never voted for Corbyn as leader and he disagrees with many of his policies. Despite this, he claimed he wouldn't say anything disloyal about the leader.

He believes that if Corbyn was the Prime Minister there would be a lot of resistance from the Parliamentary party, which would make policies hard to push through - and prevent Corbyn from pursuing a hard-left agenda.

Flynn also thinks that if the Conservatives are elected, it will be a nightmare as NHS and education services will be destroyed and claimed Brexit is not the reason we are having a general election.
