By Media Mole

The French newspaper Libération has run an editorial about Labour leadership hopeful Jeremy Corbyn. But because it’s France, and they’re filthy over there, it has illustrated it with a big picture of a muscular, tattooed Jeremy Corbyn in skimpy white underwear. But before any of you Corbynistas lose control over your means of production, it’s photoshopped.

The pictures, which also include one of Corbyn topless on a horse as Putin, looking rugged on a motorbike, and in a James Bond pose, are taken from the Twitter account, @sexyjezzacorbyn.
