Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has refused to say that he is a wealthy man – despite earning more than £137,000.
The 67-year-old was quizzed on a variety of topics including immigration, Trident, the future of the Labour party and his pay.
But when asked about his earnings, he refused to acknowledge that he is wealthy when speaking to Julie Etchingham on ITV’s Tonight programme which airs tonight.
He said: ‘I’m not wealthy because of where I put the money, but I’m not going into that.’
He has a high income, sure. Top 2% or so? Summat like that. But we’ve seen his tax return – albeit wrongly filled in. There’s pretty much no interest nor investment income. He’s not wealthy, he’s high income.
