Campaigners back Jeremy Corbyn to be the first Prime Minister with a beard since 1902

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has backed Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn to be the first Prime Minister with a beard since Lord Salisbury in 1902.

Several Prime Ministers since 1902 have had facial hair, including moustaches worn by Attlee and Macmillan,but none has had a beard.

Jeremy Corbyn has won the vote for Parliamentary Beard of the Year a record seven times in 2001, 2007, 2001, 2012 (jointly with John Randall) 2014, 2015, 2016.

BLF organiser Keith Flett said, Lord Salisbury was of course a Tory but we believe that Jeremy Corbyn can break new ground on Thursday and become the first ever Labour PM with a beard.
