Following on from his announcement that women only trains be run, to stop women being molested, Labour leadership frontrunner has gone further by suggesting that all people wear a simple garment that is both loose and unflattering to stop any sort of sexualisation of anyone.

Based on the 'Mao Suit' worn in China until the late 1980s the garment will be unisex and only come in one colour, a sort of slightly grubby beige.

"I feel that it is time that we moved away from fashion and if we all dress the same then there will be no bullying and harassment." Corbyn said in a statement to supporters. "The time for unity is now we must destroy freedom of dress."

However there has been some disagreement in the Corbyn camp over the move. While the Mao suit is popular with some of his older supporters like former London Mayor Ken Livingstone younger supporters have suggested something more radical.

"We should make women wear a long black dress and cover their hair." One of Corbyn's aids said in an off the record quote. "Men should be allowed to wear what they like but we must take the temptation of women's bodies away." He continued.

Others have posed the question as to if Corbyn would insist on Jews and Christians wearing a symbol of their faith on the suit as was the stipulation in China until 1970.
