In Whitby, the home of fish and chips, in a suit stitched with ‘For the many, not the few’
Jeremy Corbyn held a campaign rally in Whitby, North Yorkshire on Sunday – one of a series of hugely-attended events across the county.
In Scarborough – not normally considered a hotbed of socialism a large and enthusiastic crowd turned out to meet the man they think will be Prime Minister in less than a fortnight:

And in Whitby, the home of fish and chips, Corbyn looked relaxed and at home enjoying a portion of chips:
It was a massive contrast with a previous chip-eating PM:
Tory Boris Johnson does not appear to have eaten chips, or at least to have been pictured doing so – but pictures of him eating anything appear staged and awkward at best:
Unlike his current and two previous Tory rivals, Corbyn can also draw a spontaneous and genuine crowd, of course – but such a simple sign of humanity as being able to eat like the rest of us is just one more reason the Tories are getting scared.
