Brian Eno buys Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s hat for £250 at auction

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.
