A young Conservative was left with egg on his face in more ways than one after protesters confronted him outside the Tory Party conference in Manchester.
What with Britain’s ruling party not being so popular at the current time, attendees of the Conservative Party conference were advised not to make themselves easily identifiable in the street, and the reason why has become abundantly clear.
An estimated 80,000 activists have lined the streets of Manchester to protest against Tory leadership and proposed cuts in government spending, and this young man was caught in the crossfire after someone in the crowd came armed with eggs.
Jeremy Corbyn, the newly elected leader of the opposition who will be in Manchester to speak at a protest rally on Monday, has urged those present to ‘keep it peaceful’.
Ahead of Tory Conference I urge all activists to focus on policy & to take no part in personal attacks https://t.co/8UaTNpBgsr

The mass gathering has also been taken as an opportunity for the ever creative public to inevitably take the piss out of David Cameron and the pig gate scandal.
Cracking shot. Sorry.
