Jim Pickard+ Your Authors @PickardJE Chief Political Correspondent, Financial Times Sep. 06, 2019 1 min read + Your Authors

the Tory press office has just delivered actual chicken breasts to lobby journalists in a somewhat peculiar move even by the usual standards of political gimmicks

here’s a more useful close-up

there will be "adequate food" after a No Deal Brexit

in the interests of fairness, this is CCHQ money and not taxpayers' money, contrary to what some people think

maybe I’m taking this too literally but they seem to be saying Corbyn is a chicken, here’s some chicken, eat the chicken/Corbyn, which makes it even less appetising

it has been a long week
