Beard Liberation Front Manifesto calls for a more beard tolerant Britain

The last hirsute Prime Minister, Lord Salisbury

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has issued its 10 point Manifesto for the 2017 General Election.

The BLF is not standing candidates at the Election but is urging parties to pick up on its theme of a more beard friendly and tolerant country.

The campaigners say that the Manifesto ranges from general statements of principle on pogonophobia, irrational prejudice against the hirsute, to specific proposals, for example on a luxury shaving tax.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, there are of course more beards around these days, but prejudice remains. Pogonophobic comments and prejudices are still freely expressed and in some cases people are denied employment because they have a beard. Unfortunately in most instances it remains perfectly legal to do so.

The Ten Point Beard Liberation Front Manifesto

  1. No to Beardism and pogonophobic prejudice against the hirsute
  2. Equal rights for beard wearers through a Beard Equality Act
  3. More hirsute MPs
  4. A 20% quota for hirsute Cabinet Ministers
  5. More hirsute public employees and monitoring of hirsuteness levels in the senior Civil Service
  6. Promotion of positive public images of the hirsute
  7. A statue of the last hirsute Prime Minister, Lord Salisbury, to be erected in Parliament Square
  8. OfCom to have a statutory duty to monitor pogonophobia in the broadcast media & issue penalties for persistent transgressors
  9. No dress codes at work, beyond a requirement for smart appearance for public facing roles
  10. A luxury tax on the shaving industry, the proceeds to be used to promote a diverse Britain
