Middle class mum making sh*t political statement with child's Halloween costume

A MIDDLE CLASS mother is wondering which of her tepid political opinions to turn into a Halloween costume for her child. 

Francesca Johnson has narrowed the options down to something about Boris Johnson or something about Jeremy Corbyn, as long as it does not cross a line.

She said: “We could do a zombie Boris Johnson, because he’s a bit stupid. And he could be holding a book about Europe and looking quizzical. 

“Maybe he could have a calendar or something with the Brexit date crossed out. Or will that look as if we’re mocking Leave voters?

“Alternatively we could dress up Toby as Jeremy Corbyn. Maybe I’ll make one of those little hats he likes wearing out of a muesli box, and he could be wearing a t-shirt with a hammer and sickle on.

“Or might that look as if we support him? I don’t want the neighbours thinking we’re Marxists.”

Son Toby said: “I want to dress up as a massive robot with a gun. What’s Jeremy Corbyn?”
