Gobbledygook award for Godfrey Bloom

York Press: Award for Godfrey Bloom Award for Godfrey Bloom

NORTH Yorkshire-based politician Godfrey Bloom has won an award – for gobbledygook.

The controversial former UKIP Euro-MP – now an Independent MEP for Yorkshire and Humber – was today named the winner of the Plain English Campaign’s Foot In Mouth award for 2013.

It marks an eventful year for Mr Bloom, who was censured for calling women “sluts” at a meeting, hitting the Channel 4 News journalist Michael Crick over the head with a conference programme and referring to Bongo Bongo Land when discussing overseas aid.
