Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has apparently been hit by a leak, after a list allegedly revealing what his team think of other Labour MPs was given to The Times.

Corbyn has struggled to gain the loyalty of Labour MPs, apparently prompting someone close to his office to produce a list of which of the party's politicians they can rely on.

The list divides almost all 230 Labour MPs into five categories. There's a small "core group" of true supporters such as Diane Abbott, a "core group plus" of MPs who are vaguely supportive of Corbyn such as Tom Watson, and a much larger "neutral but not hostile” group of Labour MPs such as Andy Burnham.

But there's also a substantial number of Labour MPs such as shadow cabinet minister Jon Ashworth who are listed as “core group negative”, plus a number such as Michael Dugher who are down as simply “hostile”.

But here's the big question: Which category would Jeremy Corbyn's office put you in? Take this quiz to find out!
