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 mouth full, Deputy Prime Minister…

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:

“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…

WATCH: Neo-Guido v McPangloss on Labour’s Campaign

Despite the fighting talk on Twitter, Guido suspects that John ‘Pangloss” McTernan’s heart is not really his spin. 

WATCH: Mann v Dugher Ding-Dong

Quotable Labour backbencher John Mann has had it out with Michael Dugher live on the Beeb:

“[Who's fault is it?] Ed Miliband and everyone at the top of the Labour Party called this wrong… Michael knows full well the Labour Party election strategy was not to attack UKIP. That was a fundamental error… If I were Douglas Alexander I’d be sending myself off to Scotland.”

Amusing for one crucial reason: Dugher in private agrees with Mann.

WATCH: Farage Victory Lap

Nigel Farage is in Thurrock, where UKIP won the popular vote with 39% and Labour lost control of the council. Their number 2 target seat for 2015…

And i’ve noticed that 100% of Guido Fawkes staff are men. Looks like Guido has a woman problem. Or is it an hypocrisy problem?
