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:

WATCH: Ed Miliband Meets the Public: Round 2

A few weeks ago Guido brought you the verdict of Channel Four’s GoggleBox on Ed Miliband. The Bafta winning show captures the reactions of people from all walks of society watching TV at home. It wasn’t happy viewing. Well, they’ve had their say again:

[jwplatform src=”http://content.jwplatform.com/players/sFY1wpwV-dwaBVFtT.js”%5D

“Ain’t he got a funny mouth?”

“He looks like he’s straight out of college. He looks like he’s on an apprenticeship for Labour leader.”

“I think he looks very slimy. I think he sounds more slimy, he sounds very nasal. You can’t trust a man who’s that nasal.”

“It turns me off whenever I hear him talk. I keep thinking blow your nose mate, you’ve got some cold or something.”

“It feels like his mouth shouldn’t be moving but his nostrils should.”

“His nose is squashed, it looks like he’s been in a fight.”

Slim pickings for the Labour leader…

Boris: Is Clegg Toast?

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

“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…
