Campaigners say new French Prime Minister provides hope for Corbyn

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the decision of new French President Mr Macron to appoint the Mayor of Le Havre Eduoard Philippe as his Prime Minister should bring to new hope to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in his bid to win the 8th June Election.

Mr Philippe is a conservative politician but the campaigners say that the key point is that after decades when it was considered unacceptable for Western political leaders to be hirsute, Mr Philippe has a distinguished beard.

Theresa May’s outgoing Cabinet had no leading Minister with a beard, although her key advisor Nick Timothy has an impressive organic beard.

BLF organiser Keith Flett said, As the appointment of Mr Philippe underlines it may well be that after years of political pogonophobia Mr Corbyn is revolting into style.
