Bungling Ukip politician Godfrey Bloom's gaffe-prone prose has won him an award for gobbledygook.
The controversial former MEP, who is 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.
The award marks an eventful year for Mr Bloom, who was censured for calling women "sluts" at a meeting and for hitting a Channel 4 News journalist 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.
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."
Former Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom has said no "sane" person from a professional background would enter politics these days because they would be vilified for holding convictions.
Mr Bloom is now an Independent MEP for Yorkshire and Humber after he was criticised for calling women at a meeting "sluts" and hitting the Channel Four News journalist Michael Crick over the head with a conference programme.
Writing in the Yorkshire Post, he said: "The vilification and lies overwhelm anyone with conviction."
He said: "Is Bongo Bongo Land offensive? Only if I say it. Nick Robinson, the BBC's political editor, used it in his book Live From Downing Street last year and no one said a word.
"But of course he isn't me."
Godfrey Bloom says he will sit as an independent MEP until next year's European election but has not quit UKIP.
Mr Bloom, an MEP for Yorkshire and Humber, was stripped of the party whip last week after calling women "sluts" at a UKIP conference fringe event.
Mr Bloom said the "New UKIP" was "not really right for me any more". His spokeswoman said it was not clear whether he would seek re-election for a third term next May.
Fellow Ukip MEP Roger Helmer has criticised Godfrey Bloom, who has had the party whip removed after calling women "sluts" at a Ukip fringe event.
Mr Helmer told Channel 4 News:
Ukip leader Nigel Farage said MEP Godfrey Bloom has ruined the party's conference after he called women "sluts".
Farage told his party conference: "Increasingly over past months his statements have left us in a position where, frankly, what we stand for and what we campaign for are irrelevant.
"Because all anyone wants to know is Godfrey's latest comment, I've had very sharp words with him about it."
He added: "There is no media coverage of this conference, it's gone, it's dead, it's all about Godfrey hitting a journalist and using an unpleasant four letter word.
"We can't put up with it and I said to you earlier, we cannot have any one individual, however fun or flamboyant or entertaining or amusing they are, we cannot have any one individual destroying Ukip's national conference and that is what he's done today."
Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom has had the party whip withdrawn pending a formal disciplinary hearing after calling a room full of female delegates sluts, chairman Steve Crowther said.
The controversial Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom has hit a Channel 4 News correspondent over the head with a copy of his party's conference guide and called him a racist after being asked why there were no ethnic minorities on the front of the brochure:
A UK Independence party MEP has defended branding women "sluts" during a party event designed to increase the number of women in politics.
Godfrey Bloom said female Ukip members joked that they did not clean behind the fridge and he responded by saying "this place is full of sluts."
Questioned about using the term, Mr Bloom said: "I made a joke and said 'oh well you're all sluts' and everybody laughed including all the women."
But his press officer claimed there was confusion between the terms "sluts" and "slags".
