Just when you think it couldn’t get worse for the Labour leadership hopeful, two superheros show up with a tent, food, drink and plan to be there overnight
Two protesters have scaled the roof of Labour leadership challenger Angela Eagle ‘s constituency office – dressed as superheroes.
Things keep getting worse for Ms Eagle with this stand off coming just days after somebody put a brick through the office window.
And that’s after a week where she’s launched her campaign – but keeps getting caught on the hop such as when journalists left her Press conference to go and cover Andrea Leadsom ‘s withdrawal from race to be Tory party leader.
Just to add to it all Bobby Smith – dressed as Ironman – and partner Samantha Johnson, wearing a Supergirl costume, are making a stand for reform of family rights on her roof.
The pair has set up camp, with a tent, food and drink and plan to be out overnight.
Bobby, who stood against David Cameron in the 2015 election in his Witney constituency, for the Justice for Elmo party is keen to get his voice heard.
He gained just 37 votes as the former Prime Minister romped to victory.
From on top of the office building in Wallasey, Merseyside Bobby told the Mirror: “Lately everybody in politics have been acting like children.
” Angela Eagle could be Prime Minister in the next three months, if a General Election is called.
“Is she was Labour leader we would hope she would review family law.”
The 34-year-old father of two added: “I’ve spoken to Jeremy Corbyn and he wasn’t really interested.
“All they seem to be interested in is getting women into politics. But we need justice for women in the family courts.”
Bobby added that they are “going to be up here a while”.
A Merseyside police spokesperson confirmed: “We have had reports of people on the roof.”
Officers are currently at the scene.
Angela Eagle’s team were approached for a comment.
