Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, stands accused of deliberately failing to give any input or to offer support when asked to suggest a suitable relocation spot for a hedgehog that had been discovered in a large bonfire at his allotment in Islington, North London, just prior to it being lit last weekend.
A fellow plot holder, and the sender of a communal email asking for suggestions, told reporters outside the Islington Conservative Club where he’s a long-standing member: “Following my email, I received a number of suggestions from plot holders with regards to a suitable and safe spot to put the hedgehog.
“Many even offered to let it stay in their sheds until a permanent location could be found. However, I had no feedback from Mr Corbyn whatsoever.
“No doubt he’ll make excuses about being too busy with parliamentary affairs and suchlike, but in my opinion, this was a deliberate and callous act on his part and wholly indicative of the state this country will be in if, God forbid, he ever gets into Number 10”
The hedgehog concerned was last night believed to be in hiding in a compost heap behind the potting shed on Plot 111 Rear.
