WATCH: Patrick Mercer Crashes Into Parked Car

Facing questioning through his car window from Michael Crick this afternoon, former Newark MP Patrick Mercer sped off and bumped into a parked car:

Who does he think he is, Ed Balls?

At least he came back and left a note…

WATCH:  Farage Concedes – ‘Tories Will Win by 3,000 Votes’

[jwplatform src=”http://content.jwplatform.com/players/C8CQsriE-jai0rrQN.js”%5D

“The Conservatives will hold this seat but what UKIP will do is score their best ever percentage score in a by-election. It’s going to be over 30%. [The Tory majority] will be two or three thousand. It will be very difficult to think we could have done much better. It’s been a very short by-election, we couldn’t really mobilise anybody until after the European elections. The Conservatives have probably put more into this than any by-election they’ve ever fought in their history. All round, I can assure you that the People’s Army will be very happy with this result tonight.”

If Farage is right and UKIP polled over 30% that will be very uncomfortable for the Tories…

WATCH: Penny Mordaunt’s Loyal Address in Full

Well worth a watch if you have a few minutes spare, Penny Mordaunt had the House in stitches this afternoon:

Just in time for the reshuffle…

WATCH: Dennis Skinner’s Black Rod Gag 2014

“Coalition’s last stand.”

The government’s run out of laws, Skinner’s run out of jokes…

Helmer: Nigel Would Do a Better Job Than Me in Newark

The Speccie have been up to Newark to interview the Tory and UKIP candidates ahead of next week’s by-election. Roger Helmer has admitted that even he doesn’t think he’s the best man for the job:

“Nigel has that enormous box office presence, and I’m sure he would do a better job than I would do. Obviously Nigel is the biggest face and the biggest asset for the party.”

Read all about it here. While dull Tory Robert Jenrick, touted as the “entrepreneur” candidate, confesses to never having run a business, and denies being a carpetbagger. Despite having stood in Newcastle-Under-Lyme in 2010 and attempting to get selected in Croydon before landing Newark…

WATCH: Balls Blocked From Bilderberg

The fearless truth seekers at InfoWars have captured the moment Ed Balls turned up at the Bilderberg conference in Copenhagen, only to be turned away by police at the gates who didn’t recognise who he was. The Shadow Chancellor apparently couldn’t find his invite. Despite his protestations that “that’s my name, I’m on the list to attend,” the guards wouldn’t let him in.

WATCH: Joey Barton Compares UKIP to An Ugly Girl

In case you missed it on Question Time last night, here is the moment footballer Joey Barton gave us his somewhat colourful metaphor to describe UKIP:

“If I’m somewhere and there was four really ugly girls I’m thinking, well, she’s not the worst. That’s all you are.”

Not sure the outraged reaction from UKIP’s Louise Bours was the best response…

Clegg Confirms Cable Didn’t Tell Him About Oakeshott Polls

Nick Clegg confirmed to LBC this morning that Cable failed to inform him about the secret Oakeshott polls, unconvincingly arguing that “I wouldn’t expect Vince to”.

[jwplatform src=”http://content.jwplatform.com/players/JUpFDyeA-dwaBVFtT.js”%5D

Clegg says that as far as he is concerned Cable “was absolutely not aware of polls done elsewhere”. Which is the line that Cable is sticking to in China today. Though Oakeshott insists he told Cable about the four polls “several weeks ago”, around the time the pair met in open sight. The LibDem leader is being very trusting indeed…

WATCH: Clegg Shows Ed How to Eat a Bacon Sandwich

Nick Ferrari handed Nick Clegg a bacon sarnie on LBC this morning. Here’s how he got on:

Minimal weird facial expressions, no spillages, no aides required to block the camera crew. But don’t talk with your […]

Boris: Is Clegg Toast?

“Is Nick Clegg toast? I don’t know… No! It’s a matter of supply and demand… I mean, yes! I mean, no! Possibly. Who cares?”

Normally his u-turns come at least a week apart…

Liam Fox shreds Cameron’s Calais scaremongering:

“Sad and disappointed to see our Prime Minister stoop to this level of scaremongering, especially as he knows the Calais agreement is nothing to do with the EU and agreed between the two govts”
