British professor Matthew Goodwin ate his own book on live TV this week after previously saying he would do so if the Labour party wins 38 percent of the poll in the general election.

After the party, led by Jeremy Corbyn, won almost 40 percent of the vote, Goodwin admitted defeat, appearing on Sky News to keep his word.

Before his appearance, Goodwin tweeted: “Ok. You win. I will be eating my book on Sky News at 4.30pm.”

He proceeded to chew on pages from his book titled “Brexit: Why Britain voted to leave the European Union,” which discusses the reasons why people voted for Brexit and analyzes the changes in UK’s party system.
