Guy News Special: Robot Miliband Stuck on Repeat

WATCH: Clueless Chris Leslie’s Bedroom ‘Tax’ Bungle

Poor little Chris Leslie always gets given the gigs no one else wants. Yesterday Guido noted that Labour did not include the bedroom ‘tax’ on their list of Tory tax rises, well on the Daily Politics today Andrew Neil asked him why:

As Brillo said, this was an implicit admission that it is not a tax…

WATCH: UKIP Candidate’s Bizarre Manifesto

A co-conspirator has emailed in this bizarre video of one of UKIP’s MEP candidate hopefuls for the North East, Philip Broughton. It turns out he has an alter ego, running a wrestling company under the name Philip McMahon. Who as you can see is, um, a bit odd. Guido fully endorses Philip’s attempts to have a career outside of politics before offering himself for public service. He might need to work on the whole image thing though…

WATCH: Ex-UKIP MEP Asks Farage About ‘Mistress’ Aide

Nick Sinclaire, the MEP who left UKIP after falling out with the party, has just asked in the European Parliament:

“With unemployment still a problem across Europe and and indeed across the UK, does Mr Farage thinks it is a fair use of taxpayers’ money, namely his secretarial allowance, not only to employ his wife Kirsten but his former mistress Annabelle Fuller?”

“I don’t want to answer that at all,” he replies…

UPDATE:

Farage responds: “It’s absolute nonsense. It’s just a malicious attempt to do damage. Every single national newspaper has asked me that since 2006. The answer is the same.’”

UPDATE II:

Statement from Annabelle Fuller:

“I have been continually hounded by the press with these false allegations since 2006 including having journalists camp outside my house. It’s a shame that as a woman I am considered fair game for accusations of alleged affairs. It’s hard enough being a woman in politics without having to justify why I am employed. It is safe to say that this would not have happened if I was a man. Surely this is something that Nikki Sinclaire should have considered.”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
