Snell Talked About Giving Woman a “Good Slap”

Labour’s Stoke candidate Gareth Snell has had to apologise for the second time in one day after it emerged he tweeted about giving a woman “a good slap“.

Snell made the comment while watching Corrie. He tells the Sun in a second statement following Guido’s earlier revelations:

‪”I’m deeply sorry for this tweet… It is clearly unacceptable and I apologise for the offence it has caused.”

Imagine what Labour MPs would be saying if this was a Kipper…

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
