//Jeremy Corbyn will jet off on four-day fact-finding trip to Ghana while he is supposed to be getting MPs behind his mission to become Prime Minister….. He plans to win a confidence vote in the Commons and become the interim leader but this can only happen with cross-party support. But instead of consolidating this, Corbyn will spend most of the week in meetings with Ghana's socialist leaders and member of their National Democratic Congress //

What facts does he hope to find and will they be instrumental to his ambitions?

Pinter's play, The Caretaker, is said to combine Realism with The Theatre of the Absurd. So, about right then ...

Improving his airmiles balance, suntan and travel claims. There arent that many people who want to talk to him.
well no one knows how to truly donald duck a country like the Africans, so I guess he's learning from the masters.
He has stated his intention of moving a VONC, then form a caretaker government which will allow him to call for a General Election.Does he really believe the the Tories want a GE? The man is a complete megalomaniac.
Hiding, perhaps?
Goodness Gracious an MP leaving the Country this time of the year together with the other 600 + Mps , and Doris also off to Germany and France today .This reminds me of when Doris was foreign sec and he sneaked of to Afghanistan to avoid the Heath row Expansion vote.
-- answer removed --
I thought the caretaker was wanting an immediate recall to Westminster in view of the Brexit situation? Yet he can fly to Ghana!
pullover1; Don't you think changing people's names is hilarious? - you are a real wag.
Non-story.

MPs are on their summer break while Parliament is in Recess. Nothing is going to happen until MPs return in September.
‘Fact Finding’ is code for the Ghana Government are paying for it or it is official opposition business, and the taxpayer is paying. As distinct from its a Corbyn holiday and Mr Corbyn is paying for it.

The builder, worthy of a BA, lol
Sruprised he is not popping off to Venezuela to gen up on how to collapse a country given its his favourite regime.
Haha .............. ;o)))))
12.40 " yet he can fly to ghana " Boris don't seem to bothered either " yet he can fly to Gemany and France"
Sorry, Youngmaf. That was to Danny :o)
Gulliver, the difference is that Boris has a legitimate reason for flying to Europe.He is trying to get them to negotiate a deal on Brexit,
As a committed socialist, man of the people, erstwhile paramour of Ms Abbott and general wastrel busybody he's off to Ghana for a high level brainstorming session on African matters to see if he can help in any way with Ugandan affairs.
Exactly Danny! And as he is wanting a recall to Westminster his trip to Ghana should be delayed. He is full of ideas. In reality, he does nothing. Just an activist back bencher who has spent his life protesting. Make a great PM!!
“Ugandan Discussions” is a Private Eye euphemism.

// "Ugandan discussions", or a variation thereof (such as "discussing Ugandan affairs"), is often used as a euphemism for sex, usually while carrying out a supposedly official duty. The term originally referred to an incident at a party hosted by journalist Neal Ascherson and his first wife, at which fellow journalist Mary Kenny allegedly had a "meaningful confrontation" with a former cabinet minister in the government of Milton Obote, later claiming that they were "upstairs discussing Uganda". The poet James Fenton apparently coined the term.[1] The saying is sometimes wrongly said to derive from a slanderous lie told by the late Ugandan dictator Idi Amin about his female foreign minister, when he claimed that he had fired her on 28 November 1974 for having sex with an unnamed white man in a toilet at a Paris airport,[2] but his lie came over 20 months after the phrase was first used by Private Eye on 9 March 1973.[1] The euphemism has variations: for example, before his marriage a senior member of the Royal family allegedly went on holiday with an aging ex-Page Three girl, whereupon Private Eye reported he had contracted a "Ugandan virus". In 1996, "Getting back to basics" was suggested as a replacement euphemism after the policy of the same name adopted by John Major's government, which some Private Eye contributors regarded as hypocritical. This view was vindicated by Conservative MP Edwina Currie's subsequent confirmation of a four-year affair with John Major in her book Diaries. //
Errrrr, thanks Gromit.
