    @Bremenacht

    I hate to be the one to break this to you but:

    During the Olympics, The Ethical Consumer website looked at ‘The Great Olympic Tax Swindle‘ and as well as looking at the IOC tax free status they also looked at major sponsors use of tax havens to avoid tax and low & behold BT is one of the highest users of tax havens:

    Oh dear.

    Remember that UKIP MEP who made the bongo-bongo comment?

    At the UKIP conference, he said the "room is full of sluts".

    Oh, and then he assaulted a journalist.

    He's now been suspended. BBC have just shown the full footage of his full-on temper tantrum when questioned about it. Oh dear.

    And in other news, Ed Milliband has confirmed he will scrap the bedroom tax if labour take power next year.

    I missed this.

    If he's promise that, he's done it to get the Lib Dem's on board in case of another hung parliament.

    Nope. Blair did it and then backtracked. Don't trust any of the main parties to do it.

    It was a Tour De Force of stupidity. There was the slut comment, then he has amnesia and can't remember anything, he then pretends to find something someone says to him racist and it was an incredibly bad bit of acting, he practically runs away, physically assaults someone who didn't attack him first, then carries on storming off in a strop. How old is he? At the very least he should be thrown out of UKIP and should really be arrested. Anybody else wrapping a brochure round someone's face would be knicked!

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Ha just watched it. It's hardly assault. And I think he's just upset with the journalist for not being a better racist.
    Technically it is assault. If the journalist in question reported it then it would go down as assault and old blokey would be arrested for it (it's a physical attack).

    Though at this stage I think that's the least of his worries.

    @BeardedGamerUK

    They're focussing on this on Newsnight right now.

    Very, very embarassing.

    Bloom:"Are you saying your mother never called you a slut?"
    Nesnight Journalist: "No, she's called me many other things but nothing like that"
    Bloom: "Oh well, you must be a very tidy person"

    I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when Farage heard about it.

    The armed forces should seek to make British involvement in future wars more palatable to the public by reducing the public profile of repatriation ceremonies for casualties
    Thats nice, die for your country, now we'll sweep you under the carpet.
