“You can’t be a Trot(skyite) and an allotment holder …”!

Ex Social Democrat/Lib Dem politician David Owen on Corbyn becoming PM:

I think it’s certainly a possibility. I believe he is different person from the old Trotskyist that people thought he was. Thirteenth law of British politics, you can’t be a Trot and an allotment holder. They share things; they share their seeds and their spades and they have this narrow strip of land. And I think he has shown a likeability.
