Thinking of digging deep for a good cause? Mr S is a big fan of giving his hard-earned cash to those in need but he won’t be coughing up for the latest organisation to ask for money.

Leftist pro-Corbyn fan group Momentum has just emailed to warn that 'in the coming weeks, we're going to be flooding marginal constituencies with big student populations with flyers, posters and stickers'. Mr S has got his recycling box ready.

Momentum is also asking for cash to help out with this latest mission. 'We need money', the organisation says. Pleading for donations of £10, Momentum claim they will reach 3,000 university voters in marginal seats to influence their voting through Facebook ads. 

Mr S will pass...
