It's been a tumultuous year for Jeremy Corbyn. He surprised the political establishment by sweeping to a huge victory in the Labour leadership contest and hugely expanded the party's membership.

He has been met by an undeniably hostile media, facing the full gamut from the misleading to the outright lies but he has also been accused of running a shambolic media campaign, which focuses too much on his own social media bubble. And to cap it all, he's faced a coup by rebellious MPs and now is being forced to run again for the leadership.

Despite all that, he tells me he's very optimistic about his, the Labour party's and the country's future and believes he could win a general election if the Theresa May were to call one.
