Controversial politician Godfrey Bloom's colourful turn of phrase has won him an award - for gobbledygook. The controversial former Ukip MEP - now an Independent MEP for Yorkshire and Humber - has been named the winner of the Plain English Campaign's Foot in Mouth award for 2013.
It marks an eventful year for Mr Bloom, who was censured for calling women "sluts" at a meeting and for hitting journalist Michael Crick over the head with a conference programme.
He had previously been widely condemned for referring to Bongo Bongo Land when he was discussing overseas aid. Mr Bloom was one of a number of public figures - including royalty and a footballer - highlighted for their use of the language.
A campaign spokesman said: "Bloom was an overwhelming choice for the Foot in Mouth award and, to be fair to him, could easily have won this award on at least two other occasions. (He is) a wince-inducing gaffe machine and we could fill a page or two with his ill-advised quotes from 2013 alone."
With acts including Blink 182 and Jake Bugg announced to perform at Leeds Festival 2014 the event's organiser says it will be an amazing show.
2013 was a year of exciting additions for Reading & Leeds Festivals, making them bigger and better than ever. With extra stages and genres at both sites, there was a new diversity for all our fans to enjoy. However the core essence of the festival hasn’t changed and I think the line-up for next year will most certainly reflect that.
