PMSL! Hats off to Kent politics professor Matthew Goodwin who stuck to his guns live on TV this morning!
He had previously vowed to eat his own book if Labour achieved 38% of the vote after an opinion poll said they would. But Corbyn’s party got an even larger share in the general election – 40%.
And so it was, live on Sky News, Mr Goodwin did what Paddy Ashdown never could and kept his side of the bargain, tearing into his book for a good papery munch. Thumbs up.
