People have come up with a second silly hashtag in a week to show support for Jeremy Corbyn, who is in the midst of a challenge to his leadership of the Labour party.

Angela Eagle launched her leadership campaign on Monday (officially), while former shadow work and pensions secretary Owen Smith has also been reported as considering throwing his hat into the ring.

The hashtag appears to be the work of MP Richard Burgon, who coined the show of support in a note to party members:

What a time to unwittingly draw parallels.
