Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I never saw Corbyn as an 007 type. Because secretly meeting senior EU officials (in London? Brussels?) without the fact becoming known all over media and social networks and fueling massive Tory outrage about the Opposition undercutting HM Gov's official negotiations and bringing down the deal they were about to conclude and on and on and on... would really call for impressive espionage savvy.

Perhaps some less than senior members of the EU have met with Corbyn in the UK, quietly?

No, it's been conducted quite openly. but the press have absolutely no interest in Corbyn behaving competently.

So, unless they can tie him to soviet spyiing, or total inventions about alleged anti-semitism in their own minds then they're not gonna say anything.

Oh look, here's another girlfriend of Boris...con't p94

'Streuth, 'tis true, next time I'll check before snarking. He even met with Michel Barnier (who was at pains to say he wasn't negotiating with Corbyn). It is in the media, in fact. It was a year ago almost to the day.

Trouble with Corbyn is he doesn't have blonde girlfriends with big tits. And he's not 007.

Yeah. I think we can assume Barnier showed him his old UK red line step function graph. I doubt Corbyn can have gotten any promises worth printing though. All timeline issues move back to the Council.
