Welcome to my UK General Election 2017 posts where I'll be taking a lighthearted look at the funny, entertaining and embarrassing side of the campaigning so far. I won't be lecturing or spouting political views of my own or telling people how to vote, just having some fun with politics and poking a bit of fun at all the parties involved!
UKIP leader Paul Nuttall has had a tough few days. Unwilling to answer questions on the terribly tough question of 'are you planning to stand in the General Election?', Nuttall was said to have locked himself in a room to escape. Then he described himself as being like Gandhi and saying he is ten years ahead of his time, politically speaking. Um, yes.
You might have the bald head and glasses but I still look at you and see Ade Edmondson's Eddie Hitler character from the hit UK comedy series 'Bottom'...
Nicola Sturgeon has had a less fun week with polls indicating a possible loss of seats to the Scottish Tories. Some SNP MPs are trying to save their seats by distancing themselves from being in the EU as fishermen in their areas voted for Brexit-which goes against official SNP policy of leaving the UK to rejoin the EU. There is also the spectre of former leader Alex Salmond to worry about. Sturgeon is worried about Scottish voters being sick of hearing her talk about independence and tried to not make that her main thing in the campaign...but Salmond today was linking the SNP performance in this election to the right to demand another referendum. Keep an eye on these two in the coming weeks!
Then there is being called a Ginger Dwarf from the North by toxic Brexit fan Katie Hopkins.
Still, Nicola did find the time to kiss a baby...!
