Author eats his book on live TV after wrong UK poll prediction

After the results came in, Goodwin was trolled by Labour supporters for his tweet.

A United Kingdom professor has been forced to eat his own words on live television after the British Labour party polled more than 38 percent of the vote at the United Kingdom election. The political expert had promised to eat his own book, Brexit: Why Britain voted to leave the European Union if the party got more than 38% in the United Kingdom elections 2017 and kept his word as he ate pages from his book on live television.

Nope, we're not kidding. Matthew Goodwin, a politics and global relations professor at the University of Kent in England, ate a portion of his own book on live television.

Britain's Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn just helped his party win a surprisingly high number of seats away from the Conservatives in a snap general election that has resulted in a hung parliament. "And I did say that I would eat this book", he said before munching on pages of the book.

Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins now believes Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn could become Prime Minister - less than a year after saying he was "not destined" for the role.

.

Appearing on Sky News yesterday, he was asked if he is a man of his word, to which he replied: "Well indeed I am".

"It's actually a hard back so there are lots of chemicals, but I've got to get through the whole thing", Goodwin responded.

He then gave a slightly sad thumbs up to the camera.

Matthew Goodwin stuffed his mouth with pages from a copy of his book on Brexit overnight during an interview with Sky News.
