Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has acquired a new suit for Prime Minister’s Questions, leading to a dead tramp being buried naked.
The suit, which is seen as a ‘significant’ sartorial improvement to the prominent socialist, is reported to have spent several years on Savile Row, mostly under a pile of cardboard boxes.
The Labour Party feel the suit is a ‘great match’ for Jeremy’s policies, as both date from the 1970s.
“Jeremy realises he’s got to sharpen up his image,” Labour style guru Simon Williams told us.
“He doesn’t want a repeat of that Michael Foot donkey jacket incident.
“So when the suit became available he jumped at it. He says there’s plenty of wear in it yet and it’ll be fine with a bit of a brush.
“Plus there’s a half bottle of meths in the pocket which should help when meeting trades-union representatives.”
The new ensemble is reported to need a pair of shoes, but it is hoped that problem will be solved by fishing in the canal.
