WATCH: Lucy Powell Gets Brillo’d

Poor Lucy Powell did her best on the Daily Politics not to reveal whether she was responsible for Labour’s disastrous immigration strategy, described as “bollocks” by her colleagues. Eventually she ‘fessed up: “I take responsibility for what goes out in my name”. A penny for the thoughts of Labour MPs watching this interview…

WATCH: Farage Defends Candidate’s “Chink” Comment

Asked on LBC about UKIP candidate Kerry Smith’s use of the word “chink” while under the influence of sedatives, Nigel Farage gave a robust defence:

“Kerry Smith is a rough diamond. He’s a council house boy from the East End of London, left school early, and talks and speaks in a way a lot of people from that background do. We can pretend if you like… If you and your mates are going out for a Chinese, what do you say you’re going for?”

UKIP sources stress Farage was defending freedom of speech for a word “a lot of people” would use. In North London they say Hakkasan…

WATCH: I’m So Ronery

After Sony cancelled the release of The Interview – a film about the assassination of North Korea’s leader – amid threats from hackers that they would target the company further, now Paramount has ordered US cinemas to cancel screenings of Team America, famous for its homage to Kim Jong-Il.

Labour MP: Fisheries Minister ‘Not a Job for a Woman’

Labour’s Frank Doran told the House this afternoon:

“I’m not sure it is a job for a woman, although the honourable lady [Sheryll Murray MP] might reach that. That was not a sexist remark. I know the fishing industry very well.”

Everyday sexism…

PFI Polly’s Paper Pitch Picked Apart By UKIP

Labour parachuted Miliband aide Polly Billington down to Thurrock with the expectation she would take the seat from the Tories, but the carpet-bagging candidate’s campaign is going from bad to worse. Not only is she trailing UKIP’s Tim Aker in the Ashcroft constituency polling, not only were Labour well behind UKIP in a recent local council by-election, now Billington is losing the student vote. “I don’t need to consult a folder to tell you what I believe in,” said Aker during today’s debate at a local college, skewering Polly on Labour’s PFI shocker after she spent two minutes reading attack lines from her notes about UKIP privatising the NHS. No doubt as to who the room preferred – the Thurrock Gazette reports “student support for UKIP and Mr Aker at the event appeared strong”. If Polly can’t even convince Thurrock’s students to vote for her…
