An artist’s impression of what the media think Corbyn and his supporters look like [IMAGE]

John Shafthauer

If you were only aware of Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters through reports in the mainstream media (MSM), you’d be forgiven for thinking that they were all a bunch of scruffy, hard-left, terrorist-sympathising, yoghurt-fermenters.

And although the writers at Off the Perch are actually all of those things and a few which are much worse, it’s actually the case that his other supporters cover demographics which represent every group in the country.

To highlight the absurdity of this reporting, we decided to have an artist draw a representation of Jeremy and his supporters using only descriptions we’d found in the MSM.

We couldn’t find an artist who would work for yoghurt though, so we just had some kid draw the pictures instead.

When the child was finished with these, we had her draw Theresa May from the new PM’s most recent descriptions, but our little artist kept on drawing a competent looking politician who wasn’t frothing at the mouth or running over migrants in her anti-immigration van or anything.

Not that we approve of such hyperbole obviously, *COUGH, COUGH*

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
