Beard Liberation Front says Jeremy Corbyn’s beard must stay

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has noted the news that Jeremy Corbyn, the former Labour leader and Islington North MP, has been readmitted to the Labour Party after a brief period of suspension.

The BLF is not party political but it has recognised and welcomed the important role that Jeremy Corbyn’s beard has played in promoting the cause of hirsuteness in public life over many years.

The campaigners have urged Jeremy Corbyn to make sure that there are no attempts to interfere with his beard by ill-intentioned clean shaven revisionists.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, the current Labour leader Keir Starmer has never had a beard and we’re fine with that as his choice. At the same time he must recognise that the Labour Party is a broad church when it comes to appearance and that includes beard wearers going right the way back to his namesake Keir Hardie.
