      Our new series of “Blind Date” starts next week and is hosted by Andrew Marr and George Galloway. Our target audience will be black men between 15 and 30, the show will feature tips on how to date r*ape drunken women and also how to “re-enter” after consensual sex.

    Speccie are giving out a bottle of Champagne if you can name the mystery woman photographed with Andrew Marr
