Campaigners say Labour could win Beard Friendly Conference vote as veteran Flynn gets ovation


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with a standing ovation for hirsute veteran and Newport MP Paul Flynn at the Labour Party conference in Liverpool it could be on course to win the coveted Beard Friendly Party conference poll

The LIbDem conference in Brighton saw seen a significant upsurge in hirsute attenders, although this was not reflected in platform speakers.

The LibDems are the traditional party of beard and sandal wearers and their conference last won the  Beard Friendly title as recently as 2014

The BLF has observers watching each of the main conferences, LibDems in Brighton, Labour in Liverpool and the Tories in Birmingham with the winner announced on October 5th the final day of the Tory conference.

A stiff challenge for the title is coming from Labour with its first bearded leader since 1908 set to make a keynote speech in Liverpool.

There is an on-line poll which closes on 4th October

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Paul Flynn is a regular feature of the Beard of Wales poll and his beard has added gravitas and presence to Parliament for many years. His standing ovation in Liverpool suggests that the conference is focused on beard friendly
