A British author ate his book during a live TV show after his prediction that the opposition Labour party would poll less than 38 per cent votes went wrong. The reminders of his promise started after he began promoting his new book Brexit: Why Britain Voted to Leave the European Union.
However, although their campaign may have been well co-ordinated, Jeremy Corbyn's arm was not.
U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) candidate Keith Fraser mouthed the words "terrorist sympathizer" behind Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's back during Corbyn's general election victory speech Thursday in Islington North.
"I am surprised that Corbyn added two percentage points to what I projected, and I did say that I would eat this book", Goodwin said, holding a copy of his book on Brexit. However, the Labour party won 40.3 per cent of the vote.
Whether or not he did this as a publicity stunt to promote his new book is unknown.
He then gave a slightly sad thumbs up to the camera.
Matthew Goodwin, a politics professor at the University of Kent, appeared on Sky News on Saturday to make good on his vow.
