Campaigners say that if Owen Smith is really radical he will grow a beard

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said if Labour leadership contender Owen Smith wants to be really radical he will grow a hipster style beard and outdo current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the facial hair stakes.

Smith who is believed never to have had a beard has described himself as ‘normal’ but the campaigners say that in many areas of the UK beard wearing for men is the new normal.

The BLF says that a beard would not only allow Owen Smith to show he is aware of Labour’s hirsute heritage, such as Merthyr MP Keir Hardie, but would also underline that he is not a clean shaven Blairite

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, although the Leadership campaign is in its early stages Owen Smith has already come out with all manner of policy statements. Yet politics is as much about image as it is about policies and a beard would see Smith make a big impact and show he is prepared to do battle with Jeremy Corbyn for the hirsute vote.
