This week Theresa May was photographed eating a cone of chips while on an election campaign visit in Cornwall.


Many have mocked her for looking awkward or annoyed but we at SINO think a bigger question needs to be asked.

Former Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott, was obviously feeling a tad peckish while visiting a factory in Tasmania.

It makes sense then that he would indulge in the farm's speciality, unfortunately for him though he was touring an onion farm. He was filmed eating one, skin and all, without even flinching.

Mr. Miliband has since re-enacted the photo, be it somewhat more fashionably, during an appearance on Channel 4 comedy show The Last Leg.
