Jeremy Corbyn faces Harry Kane: Beard of the Year 2018 shortlist revealed

The Beard Liberation Front the informal network of beard wearers, has said that after a public ballot the shortlist for the 2018 Beard of the Year Award has now been decided.

The public poll determined the top beard wearers who go through to the final Beard of the Year poll which opens on 1st December with the winner announced on 28th December.

The campaigners say that the shortlist comprises those whose beard has had a positive impact in the public eye during the year rather than the style or the length of the beard or the views of the beard wearer.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we expect the result to be a close shave

For the first time this year the result will be determined by a combination of the public vote and an Electoral College of leading beard wearers and pogonophiles. The public vote will count for 60% while the Electoral College will take into account the wider positive public image and impact of poll leaders.

The BLF says that there were concerns about the impact of Bots in the 2017 poll and the Electoral College ensures a more level playing field.

  1. Have you considered introducing a block vote for trade union members?

  2. Reblogged this on In the Dark and commented:
    Owing no doubt to some form of administrative error I have made it onto the shortlist of Beard of the Year 2018.

    Other contenders include Jeremy Corbyn, Moeen Ali, Idris Elba, Harry Kane, Prince Harry, Kenny Henry and some people I’ve never heard of.

    I know that many would consider it inappropriate for me to use this blog for gratuitous self-promotion and all I can say in response is Vote for me!
