Despite the fact most people under 25 have never heard of the magazine – sorry, make that magazinesNME somehow found some 18 to 34-year-olds to put questions to the Labour leader as he followed in the footsteps of Tony Blair, who graced the cover in 1998 when stuff like rock music still mattered.

Corbyn was duly asked the most vital cultural question of 20 years ago – who is better, Oasis or Blur – and (correctly) selected the former.

NME readers then asked Jez to name his favourite song, which it turns out is 'Imagine' by John Lennon – probably the least surprising answer to that question since Theresa May opted for Abba in an interview with the Metro last week.

Both perfect, when you think about it. A slightly grating paean to uncompromising fantasy politics for Corbyn and a series of bland, repetitive choruses for May. Insightful stuff all round.
