Labour leader Corbyn borrows Acer the Alsation for a photo-op

Jeremy Corbyn was left red-faced today after getting himself into yet another tangle, this time with an Alsation named Acer.

The Labour leader was out meeting members of the public in Wales after attending the funeral of veteran MP Paul Flynn.

The photos show Corbyn attempting to pose for a picture with a young mother and her baby in a stroller, after taking some much needed time out from a chaotic week in Parliament.

However, it wasn’t long before the boisterous pup was giving Corbyn the run around after spotting something ahead of him.

The cute dog surged forward, leaving Corbyn to untangle the dog’s lead from the pushchair and the mother to duck under Corbyn as he tried to control the dog. 

Corbyn had attended the funeral of MP Paul Flynn and had addressed the congregation at the St Woolos Cathedral earlier today.

He paid tribute to his friend and described him as somebody who was ‘very special in every conceivable way in his life’.

He said: ‘I loved the character of him and the way in which he spoke up for Newport, spoke up for causes that weren’t necessarily terribly popular and the zany sense of interest that he had.

‘He was a wonderful guy in so many ways. He was also very proud of coming from Newport, coming from Wales, and I see him in the tradition of Aneurin Bevan.

According to Wales Online, Mr Corbyn said that Paul had never been besotted by power.

He added: ‘He was only there to serve the people that had put him there and to serve the principals he had adopted in childhood and stuck to all his life.’ 

Corbyn’s trip to Wales comes after the Labour leader said that he wouldn’t rule out revoking Article 50, before admitting that it wasn’t his ‘focus’.

Speaking in Brussels on Thursday he failed to rule out cancelling Brexit unilaterally to stop No Deal.
