Corbyn mega-weekend of canvassing update: he's halfway there

Jeremy Corbyn pranked his followers to get them registering to vote

There’s a genius in Islington North, after Jeremy Corbyn pranked his followers to make them register to vote.

I don’t know whether it was the Boy himself or one of his team who came up with it, but the post went up on X and Facebook at about 17.05 BST on June 18.

Here it is, along with one response:

If you’re wondering why Pav Akhtar added a big smile emoji to that comment, it’s because the link does not take readers to a video of Jeremy Corbyn with a grime artist; it takes them to the government’s “Register to vote” web page.

As pranks go, it’s a work of genius.

I hope it encouraged a deluge of last-minute applications – not just from people in Islington North but across the UK.
