Union boss Len McCluskey tells Peston why Theresa May has been “really embarassing” in power and why Jeremy Corbyn would defeat her if she was forced to call another snap general election.

Mr McCluskey also addresses the fortunes of both parties, explains why he believes it would be a huge mistake for Labour to start a campaign for a second Brexit referendum and why the current political polls would be proved wrong at the ballot box.

And the Unite general secretary reveals himself to be a pure romantic – reciting holiday poetry reading verbatim as he urges people to “rise like lions out of slumber”.
