Heard this morning that Boris Johnson has fought off strong challenges from Lembit Opik and John Presscott for 5 Live's title of most gaffe prone MP. I'm starting to feel a bit sorry for Lembit. He doesn't even win when he deserves to. And blow me if he didn't make another serious gaffe on the Politics Show today - at least it would have been a serious gaffe if I'd said it.
Adrian Masters was poking into Lembit's private/public life again, when our man said "My relationship with Gabriela is nothing like as important as the relationship between the Liberal Democrats and the environment". One can only hope that Gabriela's mother didn't hear that. I can see what he meant - but I'd tread a bit careful next time he meets her.
Mind you, I can talk when it comes to 'gaffes'. Last week I referred to Her Majesty the Queen as a prostitute on my Welsh Language blog. I was posting about Rhodri being late to meet Her Majesty. The Welsh word for late is 'hwyr' - while the Welsh word for prostitute is 'hwr'. The Welsh word for embarrassment is 'embaras'.
