London Beard Week- Karl Marx shaves Jeremy Corbyn in Best Ever London Beard vote

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said Karl Marx has shaved Jeremy Corbyn for the Best Ever London Beard in the annual London Beard Week poll:

Karl Marx……………….. 23.08%

Jeremy Corbyn………. 17.31%

W G Grace…………….15.38%

Charles Dickens……….9.62%

The week is a celebration of London, now one of the most beard friendly Capital cities in the world, and of London’s great hirsute heritage from Charles Dickens to Karl Marx.

The week also coincides with CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival at Olympia and wider beer related events associated with it. The campaigners say that a rise in the interest in craft beer in London, there are now over 100 breweries within the M25, is one of the reasons for the massive increase in beard wearing in the Capital.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, there has been huge interest in the Beard of London poll. Karl Marx has shaved Jeremy Corbyn this year who himself narrowly avoided being beaten by W G Grace. The Labour leader can however take comfort from the reality that unlike the other leading contenders he can still actively improve his standing in 2019
