Burnham shows backbone

What a very odd photo accompanied Andy Burnham's pitch for Labour leader last week.

Never mind the mad eyes and the clenched fist (has he just won a game of scissors-paper-stone against Ed Balls's scissors?), but why is there what appears to be a spinal column hanging from a peg in the corner?

What message is Burnham hoping to send? "I've got backbone?" Or maybe "I've had my backbone removed."

Perhaps he is demonstrating what will happen to people who cross him. And why is the spine hanging the wrong way up? The key message that seems to come across: "What a silly coccyx."

Laughing out loud! No, really. That is plain hilarious.
