WiFi?! I'd be grateful for a train that isn't 40 years old, doesn't looks like a 1970s bus and has somewhere to sit down !

Jeremy Corbyn today tightened his grip over Labour as three of his hard-left allies were elected to the party's ruling body.

Jon Lansman, the founder of Momentum, and two left-wing activists will join the Labour national executive committee, which sets the party's official rules.

Among the centrists who were beaten by a two-to-one margin was comedian Eddie Izzard - known for losing every election he's ever contested.

The three new NEC members - all backed by the Labour Marxists group - are Mr Lansman, Manchester councillor Yasmine Dar and campaigner Rachel Garnham.

They won nearly 200,000 votes between them after appealing to the grassroots Labour members who signed up to the party because of Mr Corbyn.

After his victory was confirmed today, Mr Lansman crowed that it was a step closer to taking Labour back to its far-left 1970s past.

I suppose if you're hell-bent on cocking up the economy then you would be crowing.

This Govt. don't appear to need any help with that.

The UK economy grew at its weakest rate in five years in 2017, according to the latest forecast by PwC.

The accountancy and professional services firm said on Friday that its nowcasting model suggested GDP grew by 0.4 per cent in the final three months of the year.

This would take calendar year growth to 1.8 per cent, down from 1.9 per cent in 2016 and the weakest expansion since the 1.5 per cent growth seen in 2012, at the height of the eurozone crisis.

The UK economy has slowed over the past 12 months due to the increase in inflation stemming from the drop in the pound in the wake of the 2016 Brexit vote, which has squeezed household disposable incomes.

Business investment has also come in much weaker than expected, which surveys suggest is due to uncertainty among firms related to post-Brexit trade arrangements.

The UK slowdown comes as GDP growth in the eurozone and the US picks up strongly.

As long as they give Jeremy regular hot cocoa and ensure he has his string vest on and gets his over-65's free flu jab, he'll be ok. He could guarantee his legacy if he and Diane were to start a family.
