Eddie Izzard shows off 'political statement' nails

Eddie Izzard has explained he painted a Union Jack and a European Union flag on his fingernails as "a political statement" about his identity as a "British European transvestite".

The comic, who is a long time Labour supporter, also brushed off the prospect of being insulted by Scottish Nationalist supporters after lending his voice to the Better Together campaign.

Reporters laughed as the cross-dressing comedian said "You've got to realise I am a transvestite, I've already had a lot of negative things said to me over the years."
