Wise indeed, except what he should have said was "Shut up Darcus Howe, you are a hypocritical racist stirrer of the highest order and I loved the way you were shown up as the idiot you are by Joan Rivers of all people"

The Joan Rivers incident was wonderful. The lazy old fraud Darcus Howe sounded like he was messing his pants on-air.

I don't think I've seen it but anything that reveals what a tedious failure Howe is has to be good.

It was radio, not TV. Here's a transcript and an audio link.

Will this prove to be the demise of UKIP?  I thought that one of the qualifications to stand for UKIP was that you had to have at least one swivel-eyed piece of personal baggage...

Potential UKIP candidates will have to answer the question and/or confirm:

 

 

'I have never been convicted of any offence punishable by a custodial sentence, whether or not a custodial sentence was actually imposed. '

 

Well, it strikes me that all those current MP's who were caught fiddling their expenses a few years ago wouldn't be eligible to stand for UKIP.

Farage's MEP expenses make interesting reading.  As do those of his fellow kippers.

An official enquiry into the expenses claimed by MEP's and EU officials would be brilliant news. Won't happen in my lifetime though.

In 'The New Statesman', Rik Mayall's character refers to European Parliament as the Gravy Boat. Like a Gravy Train, but much bigger and moving much slower.

I don't think she is a loon, just a 100% genuine libertarian. I don't agree with her but she is far from being a nutjob.

In which case she'll want to do away with border controls and all the "apparatus of the state"

There are plenty of women only services and some gay clubs ban heterosexual people. Don't think the law should ban such practices, though a shop that had a no gay people policy would soon suffer loss of business from a boycott. Personally I wouldn't go near such a shop

 

On balance I'd say you have to have a reason for refusal (e.g. a men only group or social club is permitted but a shop or restaurant should be open), but there shouldn't be double standards

I'm told that to get into G.A.Y. in London, you have to sign a statement saying that you are gay before they let you in.

DV8 in Birmingham throw out even bisexual people who pull someone of the opposite gender I'm told.

Was this before or after the Admiral Duncan bombing?

A gay friend of mine who used to go. He often used to take straight friends there (not me though).

After but I don't think it was a security thing. It was more a case of "this is a place where gay people can do gay stuff without worrying about other people's reactions".

Did anyone see BBC 1 Question Time last night. It really did  seem as though there were two UKIP plants in the audience...one guy who got up and left and a "older" woman who blamed immigrants for everything.
