image for Jeremy Corbyn forced to sit on the floor due to lack of seats in the House of Commons

WESTMINSTER, LONDON - Current leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, was forced to sit on the floor of the House of Commons due to a lack of seats it emerged this week.

Posting a video of himself seated on the floor he said that the House was "ram packed" with SNP MPs who had swept in and taken traditional Labour strongholds in Scotland. He also argued that there weren't enough seats and made a case for re nationalising something or other.

However, controversy also erupted when it emerged that there were in fact seats in the House, with current Speaker of the House, John Bercow, arguing that Corbyn walked past empty seats which he couldn't claim because he was a "socialist stuck in the politics of the 1980s".

"I have CCTV footage to prove it" Bercow added unhelpfully.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
