WATCH: UKIP Natasha on “Gentleman” Roger Bird

This bizarre Newsnight interview with Natasha Bolter was carried out before her I love u” texts with Roger Bird were leaked, so it’s unfortunate for her case that she denied the messages were intimate: “Often I send a kiss after a text, but I don’t think that’s particularly intimate”. Oddly Natasha described the man she is accusing of sexually harassing her as “a gentleman”. She insists “I did not sleep with Roger Bird, end of,” but yesterday Bird told Guido the relationship was sexual. One of them is telling porkies…

WATCH: UKIP Sleaze Introduces Star Woman’s Equality Speech

An eventful first day in the job for Gobby, who only had to deal with a sex scandal and the resignation of a top party figure. The aptly-named Roger Bird, UKIP’s general secretary, is out after a star female candidate accused him of sexual harassment. In a tactic known as ‘doing a Rennard’, Bird allegedly told Natasha Bolter he would help her become a candidate in return for sexual favours. The video above shows a very enthusiastic Bird introducing Bolter’s September conference speech on how women have a great time in UKIP:

“UKIP is a fair party, respecting all nationalities and genders. We are an equal party. We have women at centre stage, just look how many MEPs we have. The women in UKIP have flourished equally alongside our male counterparts. We are seen for our intelligence and aptitude. We are seen for our hard graft. We are respected for our contribution. I want to be a candidate for UKIP and I want to campaign to win but I want to be selected on merit.”

Which was somewhat foreshadowing. Looks like Roger messed with the wrong bird…

Speaker Ejects 18 MPs From Parliament

Osborne’s Kwasi NHS Spending Pledge

Kwasi Kwarteng isn’t backing down from his comments splashed in the Indy that NHS spending will have to be cut to clear the deficit:

“My general point was that if you’re going to have a serious debate about deficit reduction, everything has to be on the table. Now I’m not saying we’re going to cut the NHS, what I am saying is that there’s a serious deficit problem and you have to start thinking quite radical things if you are serious about dealing with the deficit. The alternative is to keep borrowing money indefinitely.”

Osborne has just announced £3 billion worth of extra cash for the NHS…

Russell Brand Flips Out at Media, Drags Female Human Shield

Multi-millionaire conspiracy theorist and Marxist revolutionary Russell Brand did not take well to some hostile questioning from the media. He was so uncomfortable about scrutiny from Channel 4 about his own personal wealth that he physically grabs the nearest woman drags her in-front of the camera instead of him. Telling…

Goodbye Gordon – Never Forget the Greatest Hits

Gordon Brown will tonight finally announce he is making his lack of parliamentary attendance official by quitting at the next election. This website was taking the p**s out of the former Prime Mentalist way before it was cool, but with the old media doing their favourite McMental greatest hits today, Guido couldn’t resist. Never forget the curse of Jonah:

Or when the day the dam finally burst:

Nor when the public finally saw the two faces of the one-eyed son of a Manse:

So always cherish that expenses video smiling freak-out:

And regret when our nation’s leader was so hated he was booed by its veterans:

This soldier was having none of it:

Calling it ‘Obama beach’ did not help:

But thank you Gordon, for saving the world:

…and for picking your nose live on TV:

We’ll never forget when you forgot you were still an MP:

Or when you took yet another wrong turn:

Nor when the public finally got a glimpse of Psycho Gordon:

And when Andrew Marr asked the wrong bloody question:

And cherish the day Brown finally resigned:

So long then Gordon, you absolute loon. We shall miss you.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
