Hirsute campaigners warn security services may try to tamper with Corbyn’s beard

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that following reports that Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey believes that security services agents may be seeking to disrupt Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign for Labour leader it believes that they may seek to interfere with his iconic beard.

During the 1960s the CIA attempted to damage or destroy Fidel Castro’s beard, including with the use of an exploding cigar and crystals designed to promote hair loss, believing that if his beard fell out it would destroy his authority.

The campaigners say that Mr Corbyn would be well advised to take precautions including avoiding any visits to barbers shops and not allowing anyone else to prune his beard even in the hot weather

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, it may seem unlikely that the security services would target Corbyn’s beard but the CIA did later admit to Congressional hearings that this is precisely what they had tried, and failed, to do with Castro’s beard.
