Porn star Johnny Rockard’s shameful double life as Ukip candidate revealed

Shock scandal in Bristol.

Beloved adult entertainer Johnny Rockard has been outed today by the Mirror as leading a double life as a crypto-fascist. Under the pseudonym “John Langley”, the 49-year-old is not only the vice chairman of Ukip in Bristol, but is also running as a candidate in the local elections there next month.

However, he has insisted he has “nothing to be embarrassed about”, telling the paper:

Ukip is a working class party which appeals to working class people.

Normal people go to the pub and enjoy a pint and then probably go home and enjoy adult entertainment. What people do in their private lives is really up to them.”

Rockard – who, as well as performing, is also a “talent scout, manager and promoter” – has been in the business for more than 30 years, and is understandably proud of his entrepreneurship over that period. However, he has caused controversy before – in January 2014, the University of the West of England threatened him and porn actor Xzena with legal action for shooting a porn film on campus without permission.

I'm a mole, innit.

LISTEN: Boris Johnson has a meltdown in car crash interview on the Queen’s Speech

“Hang on a second…errr…I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”

“Hang on a second,” Boris Johnson sighed. On air, you could hear the desperate rustling of his briefing notes (probably a crumpled Waitrose receipt with “crikey” written on it) and him burbling for an answer.

Over and over again, on issues of racism, working-class inequality, educational opportunity, mental healthcare and housing, the Foreign Secretary failed to answer questions about the content of his own government’s Queen’s Speech, and how it fails to tackle “burning injustices” (in Theresa May’s words).

With each new question, he floundered more – to the extent that BBC Radio 4 PM’s presenter Eddie Mair snapped: “It’s not a Two Ronnies sketch; you can’t answer the question before last.”

But why read your soon-to-be predecessor’s Queen’s Speech when you’re busy planning your own, eh?

Your mole isn’t particularly surprised at this poor performance. Throughout the election campaign, Tory politicians – particularly cabinet secretaries – gave interview after interview riddled with gaffes.

These performances were somewhat overlooked by a political world set on humiliating shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, who has been struggling with ill health. Perhaps if commentators had less of an anti-Abbott agenda – and noticed the car crash performances the Tories were repeatedly giving and getting away with it – the election result would have been less of a surprise.

I'm a mole, innit.
