Ambassador to EU heads Beard of Spring shortlist
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the UK Ambassador to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow, heads the Beard of Spring shortlist. Barrow has had a high profile as Theresa May triggered Article 50 at the end of March.
An on-line poll is now open and the winner will be revealed on Easter Saturday.
The campaigners say the Beard of Spring is not about beard style or length but about the impact the beard wearer has made in the public eye.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, it’s a very diverse list from a cheesemaker to a CEO of FTSE Top 100 company. Beard are everywhere. The question is, whose beard has had the most impact?
