This man lost £500 betting on Marine Le Pen and is trying to blame his fake son

Let us, for a moment, consider these tweets:

And now, again, we consider these tweets:

What are we looking at here? We are looking at, very obviously, the lesser spotted “self own”.

We are looking a man who, in 2017, has a username based on a racist toy for children in the 1950s.

We are looking at a man who has placed five hundred – five hundred – English pounds on French fascist Marine Le Pen, and then lost it.

We are looking at a man who has not only placed five hundred – five hundred – English pounds on French fascist Marine Le Pen and lost it, but who has also subsequently tried to blame the bet on his probably fictitious 13-year-old son. 

To which all we can say is: lol. 

Look. I dunno. I’ve never put a huge amount of money on something and then pretended that it was my child who did it. But if you are going to put a huge amount of money on something and are planning to pretend that it was your child who did it: don’t… don’t tweet Andrew Neil about it. Don’t tell Andrew Neil that you are going to put £500 on something and then as soon as it’s obvious you’ve lost it, tweet Ladbrokes saying it was your fake son who did it. Cover your tracks. Don’t @ Andrew Neil. Don’t @ Jeremy Vine. Don’t… do any of that stuff. 

Also you should probably delete your account, sorry.
