Jeremy Corbyn Could Win General Election, Tory MP Kwasi Kwarteng Tells BBC Question Time

“But actually if you look at what’s happened in the last 18 months: the Tories were not meant to win a majority – you had 8-1 before the election – Corbyn wasn’t meant to win the first time round, Brexit wasn’t mean to happen and Trump was never going to be president.

“All four of those things, in 18 months, have happened.

“So I am someone who takes Corbyn very seriously as a political opponent.

“I think things can happen, it’s an uncertain world and he is a threat, he could get elected.

“I hope that he doesn’t because I think he’d be a disaster but I take the threat seriously.”
