Mike Parry: 'Jeremy Corbyn has done a Leicester City'

Parry likened Corbyn's success to Leicester's remarkable story

Mike Parry put Jeremy Corbyn's achievement in football terms

talkRADIO presenter Mike Parry chose a football analogy to describe the scale of Jeremy Corbyn's achievement tonight.

Parry said Corbyn had "done a Leicester City", the team which survived relegation and went on to win the Premier League in sensational style the following year.

Parry was joined by political professor Oliver Daddow, who was more than happy to join in the football analogy game.

Daddow suggested Theresa May had blown a 5-0 lead by calling a snap election and then seeing her lead reduced.
