With just days to go before the London Mayor elections on May 5th the Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that Tory candidate Zac Goldsmith is still trailing in the vote for who would make the most Beard Friendly Mayor.

The campaigners say that suspicions have grown in recent weeks that Goldsmith, who is perpetually clean shaven, is running a pogonophobic campaign, deliberately ignoring the considerable hirsute vote in London.

The Greens Sian Berry leads the poll with George Galloway second and Sadiq Khan third.

The poll closes at midnight on Tuesday May 3rd

The BLF is not party political but supports Beard Friendly candidates at Election times.

The group which campaigns against, beardism, irrational prejudice against the hirsute says that it hopes the main candidates will endorse its programme for a Beard Friendly London


Measures the BLF wants to see introduced into London after the poll include:

Action to prevent social discrimination against the hirsute in London’s bars and restaurants

A crack down on displays in barber’s shops windows

Restrictions on displays of shaving materials in High St shops

Specific action to stop taxi drivers refusing fares from the hirsute

A quota for the employment of the hirsute in the Metropolitan police

More hirsute employees at City Hall

A celebration of the diverse styles of dress and appearance of Londoners on the South Bank each year

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, clearly Zac Goldsmith is very clean shaven and he has so far said precisely nothing to attract the hirsute vote. There must be a suspicion of pogonophobia here.

Who is the most Beard Friendly London Mayoral candidate?
