Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, after a hard-fought contest with Prince Harry, has won the beard of the year contest by a relatively comfortable margin of 57% to 40%, in spite of frantic attempts by right-wingers on social media to turn the tide.
The victory was announced by one of Corbyn’s unofficial campaign managers, with a very unofficial comment:
Congratulations @jeremycorbyn, winner of the 2017 Beard of the Year award (according to an unofficial exit poll). To quote JC at the moment he made the Labour leadership ballot in June 2015, “a big thanks to everyone for supporting me and campaigning for this whisker result." pic.twitter.com/6nzY3y0etA

Few could seriously argue – though no doubt they will anyway – that Corbyn doesn’t deserve this award and more after turning British politics
on its head right way up in the two years of his tenure and especially over the eight months since Theresa May’s decision to call a snap election.
Congratulations and a hairy merry Christmas to the Labour leader and all his supporters.
