JEREMY Corbyn is still not back at work after his Christmas holiday to Mexico while his own party warns the NHS is in a “winter crisis”.
The Labour leader is believed to be on his way back from an 11-day vacation to South America, the same destination he spent last year’s festive break.

He was pictured on Twitter at the airport on Christmas Day as he flew out to Mexico City.
And this morning a post on social media by Irma Eréndira Sandoval, a left-wing politician, confirmed he was still in the capital as of yesterday.
She published a photo of herself with Mr Corbyn, his Mexican wife Laura Alvarez, and revealed she had been given a signed calendar.
She also tweeted a picture of a Christmas card written by the couple in Spanish, wishing her a happy New Year, an excellent 2018 and “victory for the Mexican people”.

Ms Sandoval wrote: “In 2018 Mexico and UK will demonstrate peoples that another government is possible.
“A real luxury to meet today in Coyoacán with the future Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Jeremy Corbyn, a great friend of Mexico, democracy, justice, and Lopez Obrador.”
Mr Corbyn spent last Christmas meeting with radical leftie Mr Obrador, who is most famous for occupying Mexico City’s main square after a narrow election defeat in 2006.
The Mexican politician revealed the meeting on Facebook, adding: “We spoke extensively on the beautiful dream to realise a world government based on justice and fraternity.”
