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.
YOUR TYPICAL JEREMY CORBYN SUPPORTER
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 know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
