Kay Burley’s takedown of former UKIP leader Gerard Batten will win your vote
Former UKIP leader Gerard Batten took aim at Sky News anchor Kay Burley and – like his short-lived career as a political party leader – it didn’t end well.
It began when Burley said this about Batten’s fellow former UKIP leader, Nigel Farage.
So @Nigel_Farage says he will stand for parliament at the next election – again.

And there was no way Batten was going to stand for that. No way.
How did you get your job Kay? You were recruited by people as biased as you are otherwise you wouldn’t be on TV every day. The public have no say in putting you there & we can’t get rid of you. So don’t take the piss out of someone who actually stands for election. https://t.co/ClLSsdba7L

Plus – and this really cannot be emphasised loudly enough – his name is half a cake.
