What an absolute ridiculous headline. This is not news! Who cares whether he used to eat cold beans. The tabloid press are really trying to scrape the barrel, clutching at straws they are, trying so hard to get some dirt on our Jeremy, but nowt a dicky bird. Watch out for Tony Blair too, as he comes out of his cocoon, looking for Jeremy's weapons of mass destruction.
Give me an honest politician who happens to be committed to the causes he loves and happens to like cats and cold baked beans anyday, the Daily Mail can simply **** off.
Anyway the late great Tony Benn sums up my feelings on old Jeremy.
"In politics there are weathercocks and signposts. Weathercocks will spin in whatever direction the wind of public opinion may blow them, no matter what principle they compromise.
Then there are signposts -signposts that stand true and tall, and principled.
They point in a direction, and they say ' this is the way to a better society, and it is my job to convince you why.'
The Daily Mail and the establishment irked by someone who presents alernative policies that loudly and clearly oppose austerity and doomed Tory policies, so Jeremy, carry on regardless, onwards and forwards.
