  • TANKS ON THE LAWN!

    Meet ex squaddie Dale McKenzie, who is standing as an independent candidate for Sunderland Central in the General Election.

    He's eschewed the traditional campaign “battle bus” in favour of a TANK!

    Nice one, pal.

  • LAW AND BORDER

    Nicola Sturgeon refuses to answer when asked“where would we be left legally” if refused another independence referendum.

    The SNP leader claims she accepts “the need to have that proper legal process” – but bizarrely adds it has “never been tested in court”.

    She said: “I'm not going to get dragged into the whys and wherefores of that.

    “I want to focus on stopping Boris Johnson getting a majority.”

  • ODDS SLASHED

    William Hill have trimmed the price of a Labour Majority from 20/1 to 16/1 after they had a good weekend in various Polls.

    “There has been a bit of money around for labour after a number of polls suggested that the gap between Labour and the Conservative party has narrowed,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

  • WELL HUNG

    Nicola Sturgeon has claimed she may put independence to one side in a hung parliament.

    The SNP leader was asked if she would “put the interests of the whole country” above a referendum.

    She said: “Yes I will, if we're in that situation, put the interests of the whole of the UK at the heart of what we do.”

  • CORBYN PROTESTED YARDS FROM ANJEM CHOUDARY

    Back in 2012 outside the Royal Courts of Justice, the then Labour MP protested against the extradition of terror suspects to the US.

    He spoke before Moazzam Begg, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee who argued that five men including hate preacher Abu Hamza, should not be deported, the Telegraph reported today.

    A investigation from Harry Cole in the Sun archives shows Mr Corbyn also attended the same demo as Anjem Chaudary and Oma Bakri Muhammed back in 2002.

    Hard-left Labour leader Mr Corbyn issued a fiery anti-Israel diatribe at the pro-Palestine rally.

    He said: “When the US and Britain give lectures to Iraq and others about UN resolutions, Israel is in breach of more than all the other states put together.”

    Police said at least 8,000 people attended the protest on May 18, 2002. An account in the Weekly Worker read: “Al-Muhajiroun chanted, ‘Skud, Skud Israel’ and ‘Gas, gas Tel Aviv’, along with their support for Bin Laden.

    A spokesman for the Labour leader hit back after Mr Corbyn’s attendance was revealed by the Guido Fawkes website.

    They insisted: “It was a public event and he was in no way responsible for the views of all of the thousands of attendees.”
