Labour candidate apologises for joking about threesome with Ed Miliband and a goat

Nick Duffy April 17, 2015

A Labour candidate has apologised – for joking about a parallel universe in which he had a threesome with a goat and party leader Ed Miliband.

Clive Lewis, who is the party’s candidate in Norwich South, made the bizarre comment in an interview with the New Statesman when asked about the chances of the Green Party in his constituency.

He responded by referencing the Multiverse theory – which suggests there’s an infinite number of parallel universes which cover every single possible eventuality.

He said: “I’m more worried about complacency [than the Greens]… I mean, in the multiverse there’s still three universes in a hundred where there’s a Green MP in Norwich, so anything could happen.

“I could be caught with my pants down behind a goat with Ed Miliband at the other end… well, hopefully that won’t happen.”

He told the BBC: “On occasion we all have the ability to get carried away with language and colourful metaphors.

“If anyone was genuinely offended then I’m sincerely sorry for that.”

He isn’t the first candidate to use colourful language to refer to a barnyard animal this election.

John Rees-Evans, UKIP’s candidate in Cardiff South and Penarth, made even more bizarre comments when a potential voter brought up statements from a former UKIP councillor, who claims some homosexuals prefer sex with animals.

Mr Rees-Evans replied: “Actually I’ve witnessed that.

“I was personally quite amazed. I’ve got a horse, it was in the fields, and a donkey came up – my horse is a stallion.

“A donkey came up which is male, and I’m afraid tried to rape my horse.

“My horse bit the side of the donkey, and I had to give my horse a slap to protect the donkey.”

Ed Miliband recently pledged to be a “warrior” for LGBT rights – but he did not outline his stance on goats.
