Labour MP Chris Bryant is a colorful gentleman. He was caught up in the parliamentary expense claims scandal and also, if you will allow us to quote from Wikipedia, "was ridiculed by the press in 2003 when he was discovered to have sought anonymous sexual encounters and posted a picture of himself posed wearing only underpants on a gay dating site, Gaydar, whilst an MP". 

And now we learn that the new Stalinist-Marxist-Maoist leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, briefly considered Bryant for the position Shadow Defence Secretary. Let's see what happened:

Invading Russia wearing only undies? Unwise.

Shadow defence secretary was proving the most difficult role to fill, as [Corbyn's aides] struggled to find an MP willing to back scrapping Trident and criticising Nato.

Chris Bryant was offered the role first, but talks fell apart after he reportedly insisted on "a 30-minute conversation about what would happen if we had to invade Russia".

Chris, if you "have to" invade Russia, wearing only underpants will not get you very far. It gets chilly over there!

Jeremy Corbyn: Unwilling to even discuss invading Russia. What is wrong with this freak?
