Paranoia in the Corbyn camp?

Today's Telegraph carries a fascinating insight into the workings of the Corbyn leadership in which they report on a 30 minute fly-on-the-wall documentary, including preparations for Prime Minister's Question Time.

The piece includes the startling claim by Seumas Milne, the Labour party’s executive director of strategy that there is a mole in the Labour leader’s inner circle who regularly leaks his attack lines at Prime Minister’s Questions:

During the 30 minute long fly-on-the-wall documentary, Mr Corbyn’s team was filmed preparing him for the weekly clash at Prime Minister’s Questions with a group of aides, including one who played the part of David Cameron.

After the meeting had finished Mr Milne was filmed telling the presenter Ben Ferguson of his frustration that Mr Corbyn’s questions were leaked to the media before PMQs.

He said: “It leaked from that meeting. It is very annoying because it only happens about a third of the time but it obviously gives them a little bit of extra time.

“Whenever there is a leak it gives them [the Tories[ that advantage. It gives them the advantage on TV as well.”

This begs the question as to why the Corbyn team have not taken steps to plug this leak? Or is this unfounded paranoia within the team?
