Lifelong Arsenal fan Jeremy Corbyn has said that England winning the World Cup is more important than Brexit.
“We have done a survey and 85% of Britons said that they would prefer to win the World Cup and stay in the EU rather than lose the World Cup and come out of the EU,” explained the Labour leader.
“If England get to the World Cup Final on 15th July, Labour want there to be a public holiday on the Monday afterwards.
“Obviously the holiday would be optional in Scotland.”
Theresa May has been told that there is a World Cup on but has yet to comment on the suggestion of a new Bank Holiday.
The Department for Work and Pensions said that anyone not turning up for a benefits appointment on the Monday after the World Cup Final would immediately have their benefits stopped.
