Parliamentary Beard of the Year poll: can Jeremy Corbyn shave opponents again?

corbynsep24

The Beard Liberation Front the informal network of beard wearers has announced the longlist for the Parliamentary Beard of the Year 2016 poll.

In 2015 Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn just shaved SNP MP Steward McDonald for the coveted title.

The campaigners say that the award is specifically not about who has the best or most magnificent beard in Parliament. Rather it focuses on the MP or Peer who has made the most positive hirsute impact during the year.

There are now so many Parliamentarians with facial hair that a vote is held on a longlist to prune down the contenders to 10 for the final vote which starts on 25th November. The winner is announced on 9th December.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, more Parliamentarians than ever have brexited shaving this year so we expect the poll to be a close shave.
