JEREMY Corbyn ignored a leprechaun’s offer of a huge amount of free gold, it has emerged.
The Labour leader, who did not even mention Iain Duncan Smith when facing off against the prime minister, was cycling home yesterday when a tiny green-clad man offered him untold riches for free.
Leprechaun Tom Booker said: “I was exhausted from carrying this heavy pot of solid gold coins around, and frankly I just decided it would be better to give it to the next stranger to cross my path.
“I said ‘Ho, stranger! How about a load of free gold!’ to this bearded gent. I even explained that it was ethically-mined fairy gold and that frankly he’d be doing me a favour by relieving me of a heavy burden.
“He just coughed and muttered something about having to get home to watch a television programme about canal boats.
