The banana party shows its true colours

First the tale of the Nulabour candidate, Stuart MacLennan, sacked (see HERE) for making remarks about a slew of political people, slaves and bananas. Normally when considering Nulabour and bananas we think of dear little David Miliband, fruit in hand, with that village idiot look on his face, a look honed to perfection over the years. Perhaps Miliband thought posing with a banana was 'the right thing to do', he may have even thought it was funny. He may even have a sense of humour. It is, however, a bit different with this MacLennan chap. He seems over-supplied with laddish tendencies and is convinced he is super funny. So what did he say and do wrong?

Here is what he said about some political people - John Bercow a "t**", Tory chief David Cameron a "t***", Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg "a b******" and MP Diane Abbot "a f****** idiot".
