Corbyn Forced to Perform Acoustic Set Live After Being Mistaken For Billy Bragg

As part of Radio 1’s ‘Live Lounge September’, this week singer-songwriter and political activist Billy Bragg was booked to play an acoustic mix of songs from his new album. However following a mix up at the BBC, Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, was brought into the studio instead.

Once inside, Corbyn was reportedly handed a microphone and an acoustic guitar and told to ‘get on with it’. The following nine and a half minutes (of awkward but heart-felt agony) were broadcast live to thousands of people across the nation: who were totally unsurprised as it was exactly what they had been expecting.

The presenter in charge—who has asked to remain anonymous despite appearing regularly on British television—commented that, ‘they look exactly the same. They are literally the same person. What was the problem, again?’

Unfortunately no one was able to make fun of Corbyn after he pointed out that, ‘at least I didn’t fuck a pig’. It is unclear how long this comeback will remain effective, but early research into the matter indicates probably forever.

Corbyn has since been rumoured to appear on next year’s series of The X Factor, whilst Bragg’s appearance on Question Time went entirely unnoticed by both himself and the audience.
