Interesting this guy. A sort of cut price Boris in a wig, with not quite the same charisma.

And his name basically means "liar". You couldn't make it up.

It IS a syrup, isn't it?

I just love Simon Hoggart:
Growing enigma of Mickey's wig

In the press gallery one of my colleagues sat gazing at the sight, murmuring "gorgeous, quite gorgeous," to himself, for these were locks that would not have disgraced Michael Heseltine or even the original Tarzan, Johnny Weissmuller.

How many My Little Ponies, we asked, were slaughtered to make such a creation?
There were three principle theories, and argument will persist until Hans Blix is sent in.

First, it is his winter wig and he picked it up by accident when he dressed yesterday morning. But this is not likely, since even in cold weather the wig is never quite this length.

Possibly the regular wig had met with a terrible accident. It could have melted and fused in the unseasonably warm weather we had in April. Or a bird of prey might have seized it for nesting: you could raise a family of kestrels in there.

Or - and this is my belief - the wig is actually growing. Just as Pinocchio was carved out of wood and became a living boy, the wig has embedded itself in the Fabricant skull and - thanks to some terrible genetic mutation - it has started to draw nourishment from his scalp.

Fabricants? Didn't they feature in 1950s SF films? Artificial replacements of government leaders, military top brass, etc, used to assist alien invasions. And usually detected by some design flaw like unconvincing hairstyles.

Yeah I was trying to think of a seat in which it would work? It would be best they didn't run in any seats that is the only pact that would work for the Tories.

Erm my beard (and sideburns) are greying faster than my hair and they never matched even before I started going grey.

Perhaps Rotherham is being used as a test bed for a future pact. The Tories would never win in Rotherham because there are too many ex-miners and ex-steel workers in the constituency but voters unhappy with the former Labour MP and dissatisfied with the local Labour council could be persuaded to vote UKIP as a protest vote.
