Tête à Tête of the Week

Stan Collymore v UKIP

@StanCollymore Read a book, learn definition of "fascism", look at UKIP policies and realise your error, apologise.

— Barry Cooper UKIP (@waddesdonbaz) October 8, 2013

Dear @waddesdonbaz, can you state clearly that you don't want any male or female who's made a mistake in life to vote for you? Pls clarify.

— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) October 8, 2013

@StanCollymore Of course not. Was responding, admittedly perhaps too emotively, to your erroneous charge of fascism. Nothing more.

— Barry Cooper UKIP (@waddesdonbaz) October 8, 2013

@StanCollymore Will go further – I apologise, was a low blow. Should focus on debating the charge not attacking your past.

— Barry Cooper UKIP (@waddesdonbaz) October 8, 2013

The reference to Stan Collymore’s past would appear to have been deleted.

Potential Accolade of the Week

Poyet was my original choice post MoN. In my opinion has potential to be the best Sunderland manager of the modern era. #totalfootball
