According to Labour MP Catherine West who was being interviewed alongside Green’s co-leader Jonathan Bartley this week, Jeremy Corbyn was “green before the greens existed” because he rides a bike and has an allotment.
When Bartley tried to give his thoughts on the matter, she kept shutting him down and accusing him of ‘mansplaining’:

Has the definition of mansplaining evolved to mean ‘whenever a man tries to get a word in edgewise’? Because I really don’t see what Catherine West is on about here. I mean there’s no way she realises how she comes across in that exchange but I guess it’s easier to try and make out your opponent is a sexist than it is to actually hear them out and discuss your differences of opinion.
