Jeremy Corbyn expertly trolled David Cameron today after the Prime Minister praised Leicester City for winning the Premier League.
Speaking at the beginning of Prime Minister’s Questions this afternoon, Cameron congratulated the East Midlands team for securing the title this week.
The Labour leader – who is an avid Arsenal fan – echoed the praise, before reminding everyone that Cameron has in the past called for people to cheer on West Ham and Aston Villa.
To laughter in the Commons, Corbyn said: “I join the Prime Minister in congratulating Leicester City on their amazing achievement. I hope it’s not an indication he’s going to support another football team, or is he going to stick with the two he’s got already?”
Cameron has claimed to be an Aston Villa fan, but last year he bizarrely said “I'd rather you supported West Ham” during a press conference – a mistake he later blamed on “brain fade”.
Earlier this week, Tory London Mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith came unstuck when he likened his challenge for City Hall to Leicester’s title success – claiming he was: “hoping to do Leicester City here: zoom in from behind and win on May 5.”
As numerous Twitter users were quick to point out, Leicester have been top of the league since mid-January, and won the title with two games to spare.
