The money goes to help support the Stop The War campaign group
Brian Eno reportedly paid £250 for Jeremy Corbyn‘s hat.
Labour support Eno was a guest at the annual Stop The War fundraiser in London on Friday night (December 11) when, according to the Daily Mail, he pledged a winning bid to purchase Corbyn’s “trademark black Leninist cap”.
One guest told the Mail that the item was “literally the hat off [Corbyn’s] own head”. The reports have not yet been confirmed.
Former Roxy Music member Eno has previously voiced his support for Labour leader Corbyn. In August, Eno spoke at a Labour leadership rally for Corbyn.
Speaking at the time, Eno said: “I don’t think electability really is the most important thing. What’s important is that someone changes the conversation and moves us off this small-minded agenda.”
Following his Labour leadership win, Morrissey claimed that Corbyn “risks assassination”. Morrissey said at his Plymouth gig in September that left-wing Corbyn’s vegetarianism and opposition to both war and the monarchy put him under threat.
