Labour supporters are going quids in to purchase Jeremy Corbyn the motorcycle of his fantasies in a play to the right wing press’.
The fundraising campaign comes after the Labour Leader was slammed by the Daily Telegraph for expressing a desire to possess a Raleigh Criterium bike, priced at Â£475.
He urged the reddish aluminium-framed bike when composing a guest column
The report, which ran with the headline “Socialist Jeremy Corbyn discloses he covets at Â£475 cycle”, was amended to “Jeremy Corbyn discloses his dearest wish is a Â£475 bike” on social media amid criticism.
The tongue in cheek job, titled ‘Let’s get Jez his fantasy motorcycle!’, was found on crowdfunder.co.uk by Tom Jordan who slammed the paper for their “most pitiful smear of Jeremy Corbyn to date”.
On the site he wrote: “I propose we get his wishes come true, by bunch financing his bike in time for his birthday in May.
“I ‘ll adhere on a quid in and all we want is 474 other folks to do exactly the same, so that you can place a grin on Jez’s face, but mostly it is going to annoy the Telegraph, the Mail, the Sun, the Tories, UKIP etc. It is going to undoubtedly be amusing!”
Tom set out to increase Â£475 to cover the commuter bike to present to the Labour leader for his birthday on May 26.
But with 1006 backers that have vowed a whopping Â£2,056 already says all surplus profits will be given to a charity of Jeremy Corbyn’s picking.
