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…

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…

Quote of the Day

Andrew Neil on the dying Dead Tree Press

“I read more bloggers now than mainstream columnists, because they’ve got more interesting things to say. Too many columnists today make you think, ‘Yeah, I think you’ve said that 10 times before and I’ve just noticed your column has not go a single fact in it’”.
