One Year On: Theresa May’s Cabinet remains the most clean shaven for twenty years

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that a year after she was appointed leader of the Tory Party and became Prime Minister Theresa May’s Cabinet remains the most clean-shaven Cabinet for over 20 years.

John Major’s Cabinet in 1996 had no hirsute representatives.

Following the departure from the Cabinet of high profile beard wearer Stephen Crabb in 2016 the only hirsute member remains Scottish Secretary David Mundell.

The campaigners say that while there are more women in Ms May’s Cabinet line-up and that presents a welcome element of diversity the beard deficit continues to be significant.

Beard Liberation Front organiser Keith Flett said, with even Theresa May’s advisor Nick Timothy who had a full organic beard purged and Michael Gove without his 2016 beard, Jeremy Corbyn continues to win the political beard power battle. The fact remains that when it comes to Cabinet beards the Prime Minister is turning the image clock back twenty years.
