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…
