Appearing on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, Mr Corbyn reacted furiously after he was asked several times about Labour’s chances in a possible future snap election.
The questions came after former Conservative leader Lord Hague claimed bringing forward an election “would strengthen the Government’s hand at home and abroad”, as well as helping Brexit negotiations.
The next election is due in May 2020 under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act, however, calls for a snap election have been rejected by Downing Street.
Asking for the seventh time, Derbyshire queried: “Please forgive me Mr Corbyn, I am going to come back to my question about whether you think you could win a snap general election.

How many times do I have to tell you? We’re taking our case out there to win
“Are you telling me you are confident that you are going to win a general election?”
The Labour leader furiously hit back: “We’re going to take our case out to the country. We’re very confident of the support we can get in order to win an election.
“Don’t underestimate the support there is for the Labour Party. Don’t underestimate the anger there is out there at the levels of inequality and injustice within our society.
“We will expose all of that – that’s where our case is very, very strong.”
Derbyshire once again challenges him: “Could you answer yes or no please?”
Mr Corbyn continued: “Listen! You’ve asked me the question many, many times.
“How many times do I have to tell you? We’re taking our case out there to win because we believe we can win.”
The Labour premier has come under severe criticism for his leadership since the party lost its Copeland seat to the Conservatives – with his personal ratings bombing.
Labour has struggled in the polls of late, with the Conservatives reaching an average 16-point lead.
John McDonnell, shadow chancellor, has recently claimed a “soft coup” was under way by opponents of Mr Corbyn inside and outside the party.

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has called on Mr Corbyn to stand down as Labour leader, describing his reign as a “disaster” despite having “sound” policies.
The Labour-backing physicist, writing in the Times, said: “I regard Corbyn as a disaster.
“His heart is ion the right place and many of his policies are sound but he has allowed himself to be portrayed as a left-wing extremist.
“I think he should step down for the sake of the party.”
