Corbyn trails fourth in Parliamentary Beard of the Year poll with days to go

corbynstyle

The Beard Liberation Front the informal network of beard wearers has said that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is currently trailing fourth in the Parliamentary Beard of the Year poll with just days to go.

The poll closes on December 8th and competition is bristling for the coveted Award.

Chris Elmore a newcomer to the Parliamentary Beard of the Year being elected for Ogmore in May 2016 and Paul Flynn the veteran MP for Newport are current leaders

There were 6 Labour MPs, 4 Tory MPs and one SNP MP fighting it out for a place on the shortlist together with three Peers. The bottom four in the poll have been eliminated for the final vote from 25th November.

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.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Jeremy Corbyn has won the Award a record six times but it does look like 2016 might not be his year.

Shortlist

Chris Elmore (Labour)

Paul Flynn (Labour)

Jeremy Corbyn (Labour)

Kelvin Hopkins (Labour)

Lord Hylton (Crossbencher)

Lord Toby Harris (Labour)

Michael Gove (Tory)

Stephen Crabb (Tory)

  1. I didnt know Michael Gove had a beard !

  2. I vote for Richard Burgon, despite my doubts about his line on Cuba. In the morning he has some stubble.

  3. This contest is a bourgeois diversion: hair today, gone tomorrow.
