Should Owen Smith grow a consolation beard

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn looks on puzzled as to why Owen Smith has yet to grow a beard

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has urged failed Labour leadership candidate Owen Smith to consider growing a beard.

There has been a political fashion for consolation beards since defeated US Presidential candidate Al Gore grew one and the trend has continued with failed Tory leadership candidate Michael Gove appearing with a beard in August 2016.

The campaigners say that Jeremy Corbyn’s decisive victory in the Labour leadership vote underlines the popularity of beards.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, its up to Owen Smith but he might find that a beard provides added gravitas
