Professor Eats His Own Books On TV After Losing Bet On Elections

On May 28, the University of Kent professor, in a tweet, had bet that he would eat his book if Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party got 38 per cent votes in the United Kingdom polls.

Jeremy Corbyn was applauded by Labour MPs as he returned to the House of Commons following his party's surprise election gains. The professor of politics at the University of Kent was filmed eating pages of his book on Live TV and answering questions of the news anchor easily.

Matthew Goodwin, 35, a professor of politics at the University of Kent, is the co-author of "Brexit: Why Britain voted to leave the European Union".

I'm saying this out loud.

One senior shadow cabinet figure said the election result had vindicated Mr Corbyn's strategy but that Labour needed to do more to be seen as a government in waiting. "I will happily eat my new Brexit book if they do", he had tweeted.

"Just quickly, the consistency-is it strong and stable or weak and wobbly?" the Sky News anchor asked while Goodwin spat out the pages. Two percentage points makes a big difference, and I am a man of my word.

You may accuse Matthew Goodwin, a political science professor from the United Kingdom, of short-sightedness but you can not fault the man for not staying true to his words. Later, a Sky News producer tweeted that Goodwin did not swallow the page he was munching on, the report added.
