Tony De Viverious, 34, made it to the UK in February last year thanks to his parents’ Portuguese citizenship.
He now lives in Harlow, Essex, and works in a factory.
Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world but under the regimes of presidents Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro it has been reduced to poverty.
Recent government initiatives have included advising people to breed rabbits to eat. Caracas, its capital, is constantly rated as the most dangerous city in the world.
Tony, who has a degree in international relations, attacked Jeremy Corbyn for refusing to stand up to the regime.
The Labour leader has previously praised Venezuela and is referred to as “dear comrade” by Maduro.
Tony said: “I would not like to be living in the UK if Corbyn becomes prime minister. I really dislike the fact that he has an ambiguous position about the dictatorship in my country.
“Cubans living in Venezuela warned us how bad things could get under socialism. We did not listen.”
