Jeremy Corbyn has reportedly claimed he will be Prime Minister before the year ends.

This year’s Glastonbury festival may have only just come to an end, but bookmakers are already predicting the next line-up.
Noel Gallagher is going to this year’s Glastonbury Festival with wife Sara MacDonald – but he won’t be playing and is unimpressed with most of the line-up. Gallagher, 48, below, wasn’t asked to play at the event by organisers Michael Eavis and his daughter Emily but he is intending to go and party at Worthy Farm. The acts he’s not a fan of include ZZ Top, Cyndi Lauper, Jess Glynne, The 1975 and Years & Years.
Former Bee Gee Barry Gibb has reportedly been lined up for this year’s Glastonbury Festival. The veterans’ slot has become one of the most talked about at Glasto, with Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie proving popular in the last couple of years. In 2008 organiser Michael Eavis signed both Neil Diamond and Leonard Cohen for the spot in perhaps its finest year and he is said to be feeling the pressure to repeat such a booking.
