OH, JEREMY CORBYN!

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn red faced after retweeting kinky bondage meme of masked woman tied to a bed

JEREMY Corbyn fell into the lap of an online prankster last night when he retweeted a raunchy meme showing a couple indulging in a kinky bondage session.

The Labour leader’s post was swiftly deleted — but not before it was screen grabbed and shared widely online.

It is not clear whether Mr Corbyn realised what the original post showed when his account retweeted it 11.54pm last night.

The original tweet - containing a photograph of a kinky couple in bed - was responding to TV documentary maker Louis Theroux after he reminded his 2.1million followers there were only 48 hours to register to vote, saying “get on it, people!”.

Perhaps misreading Theroux call for people to "get on it" as “get it on”, one Twitter prankster offered “shrewd” social media advice.

They suggested: “Register to vote with memes Louis, it sends the message better.”

And the proposed meme showed two images - first of a couple getting it on, with the words: “Honey tie me up and do whatever you want."

The second showed the woman masked and tied to the bed, but with her partner nowhere to be seen - and the caption “Honey??”

Twitter users were quick to spot that Jeremy Corbyn's official account had quickly retweeted the post, until a rapid u-turn was performed and the post deleted.

One baffled Twitter user asked: “Um. Not sure how I feel about Corbyn retweeting what he just retweeted.”

But another was more positive, saying: “I can’t believe Corbyn retweeted this. What a boss.”

The Labour-supporting prankster behind the racy meme - with the Twitter handle Iibdem - appeared to get cold feet soon after and made the account private so post were not visible except to confirmed followers.

But they changed their Twitter name to "Yes, Jeremy Corbyn retweeted my meme".

Whatever Mr Corbyn’s thinking behind the late night retweet, at least it has drawn attention to the deadline to register to vote which is 11.59pm on Tuesday November 26.

If you want to apply to vote by post in England, Scotland or Wales you need to register before 5pm on Tuesday November 26.

If someone is applying to register to vote and wishes to vote by post at the same time, then both applications need to be in by 5pm on Tuesday November 26, not midnight.
