What better way to exercise you democratic right to vote than to use your ballot paper to score cheap social media banter points?

That’s exactly what a few ‘Arsenal fans’ (we use the term loosely) did while voting in Thursday’s UK General Election, spoiling their ballots by adding their own meme-tastic ‘Wenger Out’ box to the bottom and then tweeting photos of their handiwork…

Fine. We hope those precious, precious retweets were worth it.

Funnily enough, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is an Arsenal fan and a staunch Wengerphile, firmly nailing his colours to the mast in the build up to the election.

Speaking to Copa90 on the matter, Corbyn said:

I get really fed up with these people – Arsenal concede a corner in the first five minutes of a game, and somebody says ‘Wenger Out!’

Hang on a minute. It’s a corner, it’s five minutes into the game, get over it! I’m with Arsene Wenger.

The league wins, the cup wins. Until this season, the 20 years in the Champions League, I think he’s a guy that’s brought the club forward to a world status and we should recognise that.

Bang on.

    When Arsenal do concede from a corner in the first five minutes, it’s usually due to our brilliant zonal defensive shenanigans, which is kinda Wenger’s fault, no?

    I wonder how many seats an official wenger out party would have gained, if one had been founded. And whether corbyn then would have tried to form a coalition with them. This is where politics become interesting. Hopefully, Arsenal stays strong and stable over everything.

    “The league wins, the cup wins.
