We didn’t think the list of Brexit Party candidates could get any weirder-sounding (featuring, as it does, names like Marc Bozza, Dominic Frisby, Hortense Sheppard and Alaric Bamping). But then we didn’t count on Bucks Fizz singer Jay Aston tossing her hat into the ring.
She might not have much in the way of political experience, but she’s got one skill that’s invaluable if you’re going to flourish in a Farage-fronted party: the knack of making her apologies memorable.
When Jay was caught having an affair with her former manager’s husband, she wrote the couple a huge, grovelling letter of apology.
Which she signed off “The Slut”.
