Corbyn calls for June election to coincide with Glastonbury

Jeremy Corbyn has called for a snap June general election in the hope that it secures him a return to Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage.

The Labour leader, who has been struggling with the political equivalent of that ‘difficult third album’ since his 2017 Glastonbury performance, is hoping the publicity boost from a snap election in June will see him invited back to Glastonbury’s famous stage.

Popular on the squat scene and at miners benefit gigs during the 1980s, Corbyn remained a much loved but largely cult act until his back catalogue was rediscover by the millennial generation.

His newfound popularity with millennials saw him take the Labour Party back to its leftwing agitpop roots in 2015, leading to his now legendary Glastonbury performance. 

In a  stripped back acoustic set, Jeremy delivered fan favourites like The Elites Got It Wrong, Build Bridges Not Walls and For The Many Not The Few to rapturous applause in 2017. 

However, like many a reformed Indie act before him, Corbyn's new material has not been well received and some predicted 2019 would see him return to busking for the queue at the Shiiine On Weekender.

While both the general election and full Glastonbury line-up are still to be confirmed, Theresa May has recently been connected with rapper Plan B and Stormzy, a Corbyn fan, is rumoured to have headline slot. 

Fans are still unlikely to see a televised leaders debate this summer but could be in for a treat if the two party leaders go head to head at Worthy Farm.


Could this new app help men aim true?

With men increasingly using their smartphones at the urinal this new app aims to help them aim true.

We live increasing busy lives and our smartphones are central to this 24/7 always-on culture but can a new app from tech-startup AimTru help men who need to go, when they’re on the go?

The damp leg, the wet shoe or worst still the angry urinal neighbour, all problems on the increase for the estimated 88% of men who now use their phone or tablet while filling the trough.

But how do you keep Percy pointed at the porcelain while simultaneously getting those sales figures over to Trevor or syphon the python while closing that deal with Simon? AimTru could be the app for you. 

When held in position above the urinal, AimTru uses the downward facing camera on your iPhone or Android device to monitor both direction and velocity of flow, while the ‘heads-up’ display allows you to monitor your aim while simultaneously texting the wife or checking that half-time result.

AimTru's patented AI technology alerts the user should his aim on the drain drift, is compatible with 99.9% of urinal designs and members of all sizes. 

No urinal? No problem. Just pop the lid up on any standard toilet and AimTru will keep you on target even with the seat down. 

Finally, if you need to break the seal but you’ve just made a breakthrough on Tinder, just ask Siri to switch to 'dick-pic' mode and show that lucky lady what she’s in for, completely hands-free. 

AimTru is available now from all good app stores.
