Stepping up to make his announcement, the vegetarian politician was then booed by some parts of the crowd.

Announcing the award, he said: “My test of a kebab restaurant because of predilection not to eat meat is, sorry about this – I can’t ignore the truth that I am a vegetarian – is that, does it contain salad and do they have good falafels?

“That has divided the audience. But can I tell everyone who operates a kebab restaurant or uses one, they are something very nice and very special in our community.”

The defeated socialist kept smiling despite jeers by some of the crowd.

It comes two months after the election flop was rated 0/10 by 42 per cent of the public.

A number of other Westminster names attended the event, including London mayor Sadiq Khan, Conservative business minister Nadhim Zahawi and shadow home secretary Diane Abbott.

According to the British Kebab Awards, more than 1.3 million kebabs are sold across Britain every day.

Thousands of members of the public voted for the 150 finalists, and judged included Labour’s Carolyn Harris, Conservative MP David Warburton, and Cobra beer sales director Samson Sohail.

Ibrahim Dogus, Lambeth-based restaurateur and founder of the Kebab Awards said: “The kebab is an unsung cornerstone of high streets across the country, and the simply superb quality of this year’s entries shows that British small businesses can more than compete on a world stage of cuisine.

Sir Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey and Lisa Nandy are now all vying to replace the disastrous leader.
