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."
Council chiefs in Lincolnshire have approved plans for up to 40 smaller libraries across the county to be run by their local communities - in a move designed to save £2 million pounds a year.
The decision comes after a series of protests against controversial plans by the County Council to close some libraries.
Four petitions with more than 20,000 signatures were handed in to the council opposing the closures.
The council will continue to run 15 larger libraries in central locations across the county.
Bradford East Lib-Dem MP, David Ward, has criticised former Home Secretary David Blunkett over his comments regarding Sheffield's Roma community.
Speaking to Calendar, Mr. Ward said that the Sheffield Brightside & Hillsborough MP's claim that the situation could get out of hand was 'dangerous talk.'
He said politicians must stop 'condemning them as a group' and dismissed suggestions that the influx of Roma people to the area could cause riots.

Councillors in Lincolnshire have approved plans to close 30 of the county's libraries.
They need to save around £2 million, and axe dozens of jobs.
At a council meeting last month Lincolnshire Council voted to close 30 of its libraries with the loss of dozens of jobs.
They said they needed to find £2million pounds worth of savings.
A final decision over the future of libraries in Lincolnshire is expected to be announced later. 30 libraries are earmarked for closure as the county council tries to save money.
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has criticised councils for stockpiling cash rather than digging into their reserves to protect services and ease the pressure on council tax payers.
According to figures from the Department for Communities and Local Government, over the past two years councils in England have increased their reserve holdings by more than £5 billion to stand at £19.4 billion.
"Taxpayers will be amazed that while councils are amassing billions in secret stockpiles some are pleading poverty and raising council tax bills for hard working families," Keighley born Pickles said.
More than 100 veterans of Britain's nuclear weapons tests during the 1950's and 60's have taken their protest to parliament.
Many of the servicemen and their children have suffered health problems which they blame on their exposure to the radiation - although the courts say that's impossible to prove. They want the government to recognise their sacrifice as David Wood reports.
Yorkshire's former UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom says he 'doesn't do regrets' and is not sorry for any of the behaviour that led to his resignation earlier this year.
Instead, he told journalists he is thinking of becoming an MP in Westminster.
Mr Bloom resigned from his party in September after making a joke about women being 'sluts' and then threatening journalists. Calendar's Paul Brand reports.
