There’s been a spate of political gaffes this week and each one has made our day. There’s nothing quite so funny as watching self-important politicians disappear up their own arses!

Political gaffe number one was French President Nicolas Sarkozy who told a reporter he was a paedophile after being questioned about corruption allegations.

Then came Sarah Palin, no stranger to the political gaffe, who told Americans to stand by the side of their North Korean allies. Yikes!

Next was Tory peer Howard Flight worrying that poor people are being encouraged to “breed”.

And finally (for now) Prime Minister David Cameron put his foot right in it by comparing the speaker of the house to one of the Seven Dwarfs.


Now watch this compilation of some of the best ever political gaffes.
