The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the result of the Beard Friendly Party Conference of 2016 is a boost for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn with Labour beating second placed LibDems by several beard lengths.

Labour got 36% of the vote with the LibDems and Greens tied on 27% each. The Tories got less than 10% in the annual poll.

The Tories are traditionally the most clean-shaven party. There was a brief hirsute upsurge during David Cameron’s early ‘modern Conservatism’ period but since then Tory delegates have overwhelmingly favoured cuts to any facial hair growing on their faces.

The LIbDem conference in Brighton saw a significant upsurge in hirsute attenders, although this was not reflected in platform speakers. While Labour with the re-election of the current Parliamentary Beard of the Year Jeremy Corbyn as leader had a renewed sprouting of facial hair amongst conference attendees

The BLF has had observers watching each of the main conferences, LibDems in Brighton, Labour in Liverpool and the Tories in Birmingham.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, The poll result is a further boost for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour leadership reflecting a significant change in style and image seen the clean shaven Blair years.
