-A few words for level, please, Alan.

-Alan Johnson, ex-MP.

0:00:020:00:04

Oh, have you not been informed?

0:00:040:00:06

LAUGHTER

0:00:060:00:08

I decided to go straight. Where's my sister, by the way?

0:00:080:00:12

WOMAN CHEERS

0:00:120:00:14

LAUGHTER

0:00:140:00:15

This programme contains adult humour.

0:00:150:00:20

She seems to be having a good time, whatever she's doing.

0:00:200:00:24

You've got the best catchphrase in showbiz. "Where's my sister?"

0:00:240:00:29

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:570:01:00

Good evening and welcome to this election special of

0:01:080:01:11

Have I Got News For You.

0:01:110:01:13

I'm Jo Brand, and the result is, of course, TBC.

0:01:130:01:17

Oh, sorry, that should have been filled in.

0:01:170:01:20

And the result is, of course, Total Bloody Chaos.

0:01:200:01:24

In the news this week, in the race to be the first constituency

0:01:240:01:28

to declare, there's evidence that the counters at

0:01:280:01:31

Newcastle Central may not have processed all the votes properly.

0:01:310:01:35

After playing a key role in the Conservatives' disastrous

0:01:410:01:44

election campaign, Lynton Crosby goes home to put up a garden shed.

0:01:440:01:49

As he waits to be served a much-needed drink,

0:01:550:01:57

Nick Clegg struggles to accept how much contempt

0:01:570:02:00

he was held in by his own constituency.

0:02:000:02:03

And after finally retaining her seat after two recounts,

0:02:110:02:15

Amber Rudd slightly overdoes the celebrations.

0:02:150:02:18

On Ian's team tonight is a comedian who spends his time touring

0:02:230:02:26

the country, making things up and bringing laughter to millions.

0:02:260:02:30

No, it's not Theresa May. Please welcome Ross Noble!

0:02:300:02:34

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:340:02:38

And with Paul tonight is a former Labour minister who's just retired,

0:02:420:02:46

so this could be his last TV appearance.

0:02:460:02:49

It all depends on whether he can dance.

0:02:490:02:51

LAUGHTER

0:02:510:02:55

If he can't, we'll see him on Strictly.

0:02:550:02:57

Please welcome Alan Johnson.

0:02:570:02:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:590:03:02

And we start with Ian and Ross. Take a look at this.

0:03:070:03:11

This must be the election.

0:03:150:03:17

-Yes, it is. ROSS:

-Is there an election on?

0:03:180:03:21

-There was.

-I should have watched the telly.

0:03:210:03:23

The British public have spoken.

0:03:230:03:25

And no-one knows what they've said.

0:03:250:03:29

That's a good look.

0:03:290:03:31

He's won, look, he thinks he's won.

0:03:310:03:35

I think... It's an absolutely amazing result.

0:03:350:03:38

Everybody who was predicting it was completely wrong.

0:03:380:03:41

What seems to have happened is that the British public don't like

0:03:410:03:45

being told what to think,

0:03:450:03:47

and they don't like people getting above themselves,

0:03:470:03:50

so Mrs May just got a huge slap.

0:03:500:03:53

"I'll take half your majority away. Shut up!"

0:03:560:04:00

I like your characterisation of the British public as this one

0:04:000:04:02

tetchy individual.

0:04:020:04:04

A slight air of camp about it, let's be fair.

0:04:060:04:11

That's how I view them. They also don't like people picking on people.

0:04:110:04:16

So Corbyn got a massive sympathy vote. Boomf!

0:04:160:04:19

-AUDIENCE MEMBER: Yay!

-There's one!

0:04:190:04:23

No, it was absolutely extraordinary.

0:04:230:04:25

-And those of us who stayed up all night...

-You sound a bit hoarse.

0:04:250:04:29

-Were you shouting at the screen for a long time?

-Nearly five hours.

0:04:290:04:34

No, it was amazing and just completely unpredictable.

0:04:340:04:37

Whatever you thought you knew was completely wrong.

0:04:370:04:40

Which is good for people in my business.

0:04:400:04:44

Don't you think it's time to get rid of the British public? I mean...

0:04:440:04:49

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:04:490:04:53

-They are getting in the way, aren't they?

-They are!

0:04:550:04:58

To be fair, that is what May is planning to do.

0:04:580:05:02

Cos we've got too many old people, so she's going to go,

0:05:020:05:04

"I think we could just get rid of them as quickly as possible."

0:05:040:05:08

We've had it with Europe and with the local elections...

0:05:080:05:10

They keep doing things we don't want them to do.

0:05:100:05:13

-I don't know, they've gone too far. Enough is enough.

-Yes.

0:05:130:05:17

Although, to be fair, they didn't vote in Mr Fish Finger.

0:05:170:05:23

There he is! There he is!

0:05:230:05:25

It's Mr Fish Finger at the front, actually.

0:05:250:05:28

I think that's cruel. He might have been born like that.

0:05:300:05:33

Imagine giving birth to that and being told by the doctor

0:05:330:05:36

"He's a boy, but he's a fish finger as well."

0:05:360:05:39

Amber Rudd... Am I the only one who thinks Amber Rudd sounds like

0:05:390:05:43

a traffic light sequence? So...

0:05:430:05:46

If she stood for the Green Party, it would be Amber "Rudd" Green.

0:05:460:05:52

Like the Highway Code.

0:05:520:05:54

I said that on the programme about eight months ago!

0:05:580:06:02

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:06:020:06:05

-That's almost word for word what I said.

-I didn't see it, honestly.

-No.

0:06:070:06:11

-It's just, when you sit here, your genius emanates.

-I know.

0:06:110:06:15

I can't do anything about it. I'll have to sit near an open window.

0:06:150:06:19

If they can find me saying it and play it in...

0:06:190:06:22

-I know, Ian, it's getting late.

-I know!

0:06:220:06:24

-Have you got a charabanc to catch somewhere?

-I have!

0:06:240:06:27

-I'll shut up.

-No, no. No, no.

0:06:270:06:30

-What's happened?

-We've gone off the election cos they're not interested.

0:06:300:06:33

Steve, who's lost their seat?

0:06:330:06:35

Yeah, OK. All right. Paul Nuttall has just resigned.

0:06:350:06:39

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:06:390:06:42

Paul Nuttall has resigned? That's not bad.

0:06:530:06:56

He had a disappointing evening.

0:06:560:06:57

Their seats went from nought to nought. Which is tough.

0:06:570:07:02

-But hang on.

-He claims he's resigned,

0:07:020:07:05

-but that might just be what it says on his website.

-Yeah.

0:07:050:07:08

We might find out he's still got his job.

0:07:080:07:11

Who told you this Amber Rudd joke?

0:07:110:07:14

LAUGHTER

0:07:140:07:16

-I thought it up myself.

-You thought it up yourself?!

0:07:160:07:19

I sit in a darkened room.

0:07:190:07:20

I think of you and this stuff comes into my head.

0:07:200:07:23

LAUGHTER

0:07:230:07:26

-If he starts doing jokes about penguins, we're onto him.

-Yeah.

0:07:260:07:30

Now, it was an amazing night for Jeremy Corbyn.

0:07:300:07:33

Alan, you described him as "useless, incompetent and incapable."

0:07:330:07:39

You're reading things into that.

0:07:390:07:41

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:07:410:07:44

Typical of the mainstream media - attacking.

0:07:470:07:50

Hislop and his establishment paper, Public Eye or whatever it is,

0:07:500:07:54

-you just make up these things.

-Can I just say at this point,

0:07:540:07:58

I'd like to congratulate Jeremy on a very, very good campaign.

0:07:580:08:02

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:08:020:08:06

I'm not serious!

0:08:060:08:09

He was terrible, but he wasn't as terrible as her.

0:08:090:08:12

That's all that matters.

0:08:120:08:14

If you start from a really low bar...

0:08:140:08:17

A huge success.

0:08:170:08:18

He's now as successful as Gordon Brown was when he lost.

0:08:180:08:22

But we consider victory to be a bourgeois concept.

0:08:240:08:28

The only goal for true socialists is glorious, bloody defeat.

0:08:280:08:33

Then Mrs May must be thrilled.

0:08:330:08:37

-Are young people responsible for this?

-Yeah, they've come out,

0:08:370:08:40

which is terrific.

0:08:400:08:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:08:420:08:45

And next they'll get a job!

0:08:470:08:49

We have to ask you, Ross, cos you're the nearest thing

0:08:490:08:53

-approaching a young person.

-Oh, my God!

0:08:530:08:56

That makes me feel very special.

0:08:560:08:58

And completely at odds with everything my wife says.

0:08:580:09:02

According to ITV, the third-most googled question last night was...

0:09:020:09:07

That might have been older people, we don't know.

0:09:100:09:13

I think that was Tories.

0:09:130:09:15

Jeremy was very pleased.

0:09:150:09:17

-He attempted a high-five with Emily Thornberry.

-Oh, yes.

0:09:170:09:21

-Shall we have a look?

-Yes, let's have a look at that.

0:09:210:09:24

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:09:300:09:33

Essentially, he saw the opportunity was there.

0:09:390:09:43

-Everybody would see it as a mistake.

-Typical of a politician,

0:09:430:09:47

he just fronted it out and pretended it didn't happen,

0:09:470:09:49

whereas he should have just owned it and gone...

0:09:490:09:52

HE HONKS

0:09:520:09:54

That's what people want from the politicians.

0:09:570:10:01

Except Donald Trump, obviously.

0:10:010:10:03

People kept saying he was like Trump, an outsider, and he thought,

0:10:030:10:06

"If I'm going to be really like Trump..."

0:10:060:10:09

No-one could quite believe the exit poll when it was announced

0:10:090:10:14

at 10pm but sadly for Theresa May, Exit meant Exit.

0:10:140:10:20

Let's have a look at somebody that was helping out.

0:10:200:10:24

It's the expert behind the poll, Professor John Curtice,

0:10:240:10:27

who was made to stand on a balcony and shout down at David Dimbleby.

0:10:270:10:32

For those of you who watched,

0:10:320:10:34

there were seven hours of people going "It's too early to say.

0:10:340:10:36

"It's too... No, it's not early any more. It's... Oh, damn, it's right."

0:10:360:10:41

And there was quite a lot of him,

0:10:410:10:43

once you got into the early hours, going...

0:10:430:10:46

In fact, there's probably footage of him on that scaffolding going,

0:10:490:10:52

"Come on!"

0:10:520:10:54

Shall we have a look at some of the high-profile casualties?

0:10:540:10:57

We like to do that. Let's start with Nick Clegg.

0:10:570:11:01

-AUDIENCE:

-Aw!

0:11:010:11:03

-There we go. ROSS:

-He did look sad.

-He looks very depressed, doesn't he?

0:11:070:11:11

-ALAN:

-No, that's a look of relief.

-Do you think?

-It's relief.

0:11:110:11:14

-He's out of there, yeah.

-Anyone here feel sorry for him?

0:11:140:11:18

Yeah, I felt sorry for him. But when the coalition started,

0:11:180:11:21

I said, "I don't mind a hung parliament."

0:11:210:11:23

I quite like the idea of politicians having to deal with each other

0:11:230:11:26

and come up with a compromise in the middle.

0:11:260:11:28

I'm against thumping majorities, cos they go around thumping people.

0:11:280:11:33

APPLAUSE

0:11:330:11:38

The guy who beat Nick Clegg had to go out and buy

0:11:380:11:40

a suit in the supermarket.

0:11:400:11:42

He didn't think he was going to win.

0:11:420:11:44

So they sent him out to get a suit.

0:11:440:11:47

What sort of supermarket sells suits?

0:11:470:11:49

-Tesco Extra.

-Tesco...

-Tesco Extra, 24 hours a day.

-Waistcoats...?

0:11:490:11:57

-Do they do cummerbunds at short notice?

-They do.

0:11:570:12:00

And first-rate spats.

0:12:000:12:02

LAUGHTER

0:12:020:12:05

Would you like to see Laura Kuenssberg talking about

0:12:050:12:08

-Tim Farron's close shave?

-No.

-Yes.

0:12:080:12:11

A very, very knife-edge result in Westmorland, where Tim Farron,

0:12:130:12:16

the current party leader, is facing potential defeat.

0:12:160:12:19

There's chatter there about a recunt - recount.

0:12:190:12:23

LAUGHTER

0:12:230:12:26

The thing about that is, she's been working so hard, just nonstop.

0:12:260:12:30

She hasn't had a break.

0:12:300:12:32

The other day, she was on the news and she said... She was supposed

0:12:320:12:36

to say, "They've been out there shaking hands and kissing babies."

0:12:360:12:41

And I swear to God,

0:12:410:12:43

she went, "They've been out there shaking babies... Oh!"

0:12:430:12:47

I went "What?" Theresa May's going, "I really don't want to continue."

0:12:470:12:53

Shaking babies!

0:12:550:12:56

It's sad. She was talking all night and that's the bit everyone remembers.

0:12:580:13:01

-I know.

-I was in a room full of people who all just laughed.

0:13:010:13:06

No, we thought it was a bit hard on Tim.

0:13:060:13:09

And in a bad night for the SNP and a brilliant one for

0:13:110:13:14

Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson,

0:13:140:13:16

-Alex Salmond lost his seat.

-Yes.

0:13:160:13:21

That was a shame, wasn't it, audience?

0:13:210:13:24

-See Doctor Who won that one.

-He's flashing up there.

0:13:240:13:29

Peter Capaldi won that seat. Look there - Doctor Who.

0:13:290:13:32

As you're filling in for Laura Kuenssberg here, Jo...

0:13:320:13:35

-Shut up, you

-BLEEP!

0:13:350:13:37

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:13:370:13:40

Sorry.

0:13:450:13:47

You're nicking my material now!

0:13:580:14:00

Paul, let's take you briefly back to a painful area, Amber Rudd.

0:14:010:14:07

It wasn't Michael Portillo who told you, was it?

0:14:100:14:14

-No.

-She won after two recounts,

0:14:140:14:17

although Diane Abbott said it was five.

0:14:170:14:21

LAUGHTER

0:14:210:14:23

Will Amber Rudd be the next leader, do you think?

0:14:230:14:27

If she does become the next leader,

0:14:270:14:29

I can imagine the headline writers will have a field day with her name.

0:14:290:14:34

It's almost like a traffic light.

0:14:340:14:37

Traffic light sequence!

0:14:370:14:41

-Who was looking very happy at the result?

-Jeremy.

0:14:410:14:44

No, think Tory who's recently...

0:14:440:14:48

-Osborne.

-Yes, indeed, Osborne.

0:14:480:14:52

He was on ITV. They had a special smugometer for him.

0:14:520:14:56

He had little curly shoes on with bells,

0:14:590:15:02

and he was skipping from foot to foot.

0:15:020:15:05

-I can't imagine George Osborne looking smug.

-Well, here we are.

0:15:050:15:10

Have a look. There he is.

0:15:100:15:12

LAUGHTER

0:15:120:15:15

He had a strange habit of giving the viewer a piercing stare.

0:15:150:15:19

Let's have a look.

0:15:190:15:20

-ROSS:

-To be fair, he was just looking like that because Ed Balls

0:15:290:15:32

was tap dancing on his feet.

0:15:320:15:34

What's going to happen now?

0:15:340:15:36

Well, they've got to form a government. Unless Steve comes in

0:15:360:15:39

again and tells us that Theresa May has resigned.

0:15:390:15:43

Or maybe the public will resign.

0:15:430:15:46

I think the vote is pretty clear. We don't want to vote again.

0:15:460:15:49

Can we not?

0:15:490:15:51

We've done it enough now.

0:15:510:15:53

Let's have a referendum on whether we want to do that.

0:15:530:15:57

Even in Scotland they said they'd had enough voting.

0:15:570:16:00

Just across the board. If you're promising another vote,

0:16:000:16:03

everyone goes, "No. No, thanks. We're quite busy this year."

0:16:030:16:06

Let me just nip in with a question.

0:16:060:16:08

What does a hung parliament mean for Brexit?

0:16:080:16:10

The negotiations begin in 11 days.

0:16:100:16:13

Somebody from the European Union

0:16:130:16:16

has already said that she's a lame duck.

0:16:160:16:18

Cos she says "My government wants this," and they say,

0:16:180:16:21

"You don't have a government."

0:16:210:16:23

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:16:230:16:25

Which is not a great position.

0:16:250:16:28

APPLAUSE

0:16:280:16:31

Theresa May has shown she is strong and stable,

0:16:310:16:34

so when she goes into those negotiations,

0:16:340:16:37

they will obviously be in awe of this strong and stable...

0:16:370:16:40

-This is the woman who backed out of an interview on Woman's Hour.

-Yeah.

0:16:400:16:45

-You have to be strong to do that.

-That takes guts.

0:16:450:16:49

We need a boo for the end, so can I just say Zac Goldsmith got in?

0:16:490:16:54

AUDIENCE: Booo!

0:16:540:16:57

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:16:570:16:59

Can we look forward to another general election in the autumn?

0:17:050:17:09

We might get... You can hear the groans.

0:17:090:17:12

-But if I was a Tory, Alan...

-Which you are.

0:17:120:17:16

Yeah, like you. No! No.

0:17:160:17:19

If I was, I'd be thinking,

0:17:190:17:20

"Let's just let her do the next year or so."

0:17:200:17:23

-Just going to be miserable, isn't it?

-It's going to be miserable.

0:17:230:17:26

-Sitting around, she's doing Brexit.

-Yeah.

0:17:260:17:28

So who definitely won't be happy to hear there might be another

0:17:280:17:31

-general election? Who do we remember?

-Is it everyone?

0:17:310:17:36

Well, Brenda from Bristol.

0:17:360:17:39

Remember how she reacted to the news?

0:17:390:17:42

You're joking.

0:17:420:17:44

Not another one?!

0:17:440:17:46

Oh, for God's sake, honestly...

0:17:460:17:48

I can't stand this. There's too much politics going on at the moment.

0:17:480:17:53

Why does she need to do it?

0:17:530:17:55

APPLAUSE

0:17:550:17:58

A question she must be asking herself.

0:18:020:18:05

And thinking, "Why didn't I employ Brenda as a special assistant?"

0:18:050:18:10

-So, this is the news...

-Carry on, Laura.

-Thank you.

0:18:100:18:15

Watch it.

0:18:150:18:17

I have other weapons in my vocabulary apart from the C-word.

0:18:170:18:23

This is the news of...

0:18:230:18:24

-You started with the nuclear option, though, didn't you?

-I did.

0:18:240:18:28

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE I know.

0:18:280:18:31

That's always a massive mistake if you're a stand-up

0:18:310:18:33

cos if you start with the nuclear option, you got nowhere to go

0:18:330:18:36

except crying off-stage, really.

0:18:360:18:39

Tell that to Kim Jong-il.

0:18:390:18:42

I will, cos we're good mates.

0:18:420:18:45

He likes a cake.

0:18:450:18:47

LAUGHTER AND OOHING

0:18:470:18:51

-Thank you, Ian.

-You have a programme about cakes!

-Oh, OK.

0:18:510:18:56

This is the news of the humiliating victory for Theresa May.

0:18:590:19:03

Not quite all of the results are in yet as we speak.

0:19:030:19:06

The largest party...

0:19:060:19:08

is being held by students in Sheffield,

0:19:080:19:10

where Nick Clegg lost his seat.

0:19:100:19:13

Speaking at the Islington count,

0:19:130:19:15

Jeremy Corbyn called for the Prime Minister to go, saying...

0:19:150:19:18

In fact, the only thing she did win, Jeremy, was 50 more seats than you.

0:19:210:19:27

There's an outside chance that Jeremy Corbyn could form

0:19:270:19:30

a minority government,

0:19:300:19:31

although he would need the support of Sinn Fein. See?

0:19:310:19:34

You never know when your links to terrorist groups will come in handy.

0:19:340:19:38

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:19:380:19:41

Paul and Alan, take a look at this.

0:19:440:19:47

Oh, this would seem to be the same question as they had.

0:19:480:19:50

-There's Theresa May.

-Who's that?

0:19:500:19:52

Dunno, Mr Sesame Street.

0:19:520:19:54

That's going to happen to transport in Britain. He's on a coach.

0:19:540:19:58

We've seen all these people already.

0:19:580:20:00

I refer Your Honour to my client's previous answer.

0:20:000:20:04

-Slightly different slant on it.

-Is it?

-Yeah.

0:20:040:20:07

This is the last few days of Theresa May thinking she had

0:20:070:20:10

a political future.

0:20:100:20:12

She was flummoxed by a tough question on ITV.

0:20:120:20:16

-Do you know what it was?

-"What's your favourite colour?"

0:20:160:20:19

Yes, it was something like,

0:20:190:20:21

"What is the craziest thing you've ever done?"

0:20:210:20:25

-"The maddest thing you've ever done"?

-AUDIENCE MEMBER: Naughtiest.

0:20:250:20:28

Naughty, thank you. I'm indebted to the MP for Rochdale North...

0:20:280:20:33

Let's have a look and see exactly what she did say.

0:20:330:20:37

-What's the naughtiest thing you ever did?

-Oh, goodness me. Um...

0:20:370:20:41

Well, I suppose...

0:20:410:20:43

-PAUL:

-Threesome with John Major and Nicholas Soames.

0:20:430:20:46

-I'm not quite sure.

-There must have been a moment.

0:20:460:20:48

Nobody is ever perfectly behaved, are they? I mean, I have to confess,

0:20:480:20:52

when me and my friends used to run through the fields of wheat,

0:20:520:20:56

the farmers weren't too pleased about that.

0:20:560:20:59

But, to be fair, what she didn't say was that she was carrying

0:21:020:21:05

another child who had a terrible wheat allergy.

0:21:050:21:08

And she was just running, like that. And his head was all swollen up...

0:21:080:21:12

Basically... I mean, the thing is, right,

0:21:120:21:15

is that the campaign was so terrible and she did such an appalling job

0:21:150:21:19

and she still was trying to make out that, you know...

0:21:190:21:22

What she should have done there - "So what's the worst thing?" -

0:21:220:21:25

she should have gone, "I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die."

0:21:250:21:29

-That's what she should have done.

-LAUGHTER

0:21:290:21:31

Now, I'm going to ask you lot, then,

0:21:310:21:33

what's the naughtiest thing you've ever done? Ian?

0:21:330:21:36

Yeah, come on, Ian. This'll be interesting!

0:21:360:21:39

Tell them about the threesome

0:21:390:21:41

with Lady Antonia Fraser and Harold Pinter.

0:21:410:21:44

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:21:440:21:47

OK, how long have you got?

0:21:500:21:52

That's what you used to say when you walked in!

0:21:520:21:55

What happened when Tim Farron went inside his polling station to vote?

0:21:580:22:02

-They wouldn't let him in.

-No. Shall we have a look?

-Yeah.

0:22:020:22:08

There's a fight.

0:22:080:22:11

-WOMAN:

-A man just nearly tripped up. He's done it again.

0:22:110:22:13

What's going on?

0:22:130:22:15

Oh, God, they're having a proper scrap.

0:22:160:22:19

AUDIENCE: Ooh!

0:22:210:22:22

LAUGHTER

0:22:270:22:29

There we go. Bit of a scrap outside.

0:22:290:22:31

It's nothing compared to John Prescott.

0:22:310:22:33

John Prescott didn't let the cameramen and the reporters

0:22:330:22:36

hit each other, he stepped in himself.

0:22:360:22:39

Now, during his final week of campaigning,

0:22:390:22:42

what mistake did Conservative candidate Chris Hopkins make

0:22:420:22:45

at a hustings in Keighley, West Yorkshire?

0:22:450:22:48

Did he forget which party he was standing for? Or where he was?

0:22:480:22:51

He made the mistake of asking the audience a question

0:22:510:22:55

-that he assumed was rhetorical. Let's see if they agreed.

-Right.

0:22:550:23:00

ALL: Yes!

0:23:030:23:05

LAUGHTER

0:23:140:23:15

And the seat was won by John Grogan, Labour's candidate there.

0:23:150:23:20

CHEERING

0:23:200:23:21

Thank you, John Grogan's family.

0:23:210:23:25

Meanwhile, in East Yorkshire, what did Conservative candidate

0:23:250:23:29

Greg Knight do at the end of his campaign video that took

0:23:290:23:34

everyone by surprise?

0:23:340:23:36

Oh, he took his clothes off. Danced naked in the Hawaiian sun.

0:23:360:23:41

-Played the drums.

-Whistled.

-You're not far off on the sort of music...

0:23:410:23:46

-He sang.

-Let's just have a look and see.

0:23:460:23:50

Hello, my name's Greg Knight.

0:23:510:23:53

I'm the Conservative candidate for East Yorkshire.

0:23:530:23:56

I hope you'll vote for me and support Theresa May.

0:23:560:24:00

We want a strong and stable government,

0:24:000:24:03

not a coalition of chaos led by Jeremy Corbyn.

0:24:030:24:07

# You'll get accountability

0:24:070:24:11

# With Conservative delivery

0:24:110:24:15

# Make sure this time you get it right

0:24:150:24:18

# Vote for Greg Knight. #

0:24:180:24:21

This is the final few days of the election campaign,

0:24:230:24:26

during which the BBC has without doubt been unashamedly biased

0:24:260:24:30

in favour of the party you didn't vote for.

0:24:300:24:34

Diane Abbott did what's known as a Theresa May and failed

0:24:340:24:38

to turn up for a debate on Woman's Hour because she was ill.

0:24:380:24:41

To be fair to her,

0:24:410:24:42

she did phone in saying she had a temperature of 5,000.

0:24:420:24:46

LAUGHTER

0:24:460:24:50

A senior Labour source has dismissed Corbyn supporters

0:24:500:24:54

as a coalition of...

0:24:540:24:56

Missing out the most feared of all - the Ringo Starr-linists.

0:25:000:25:05

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:25:050:25:09

On the last day of the campaign, Theresa May went to the butchers

0:25:120:25:15

in the morning, then a home furnishing store,

0:25:150:25:18

then went to watch some bowls on the village green.

0:25:180:25:21

Sounds like she was trying to get the vote of my Auntie Pat.

0:25:210:25:24

On Wednesday, Theresa May visited the Smithfield meat market

0:25:240:25:28

where the butchers talked her through various cuts of meat,

0:25:280:25:31

and had to explain to Theresa May that Brisket means Brisket.

0:25:310:25:37

And a soft Brisket is infinitely preferable to a hard one.

0:25:370:25:41

APPLAUSE Thank you.

0:25:410:25:45

So, at the end of that round, well, it's a draw - you got two each.

0:25:450:25:51

APPLAUSE

0:25:510:25:54

Time now for Round Two,

0:26:000:26:01

and let's move on from talking about the election to answering

0:26:010:26:05

-some quickfire questions about the election.

-Excellent!

0:26:050:26:08

Over the course of the campaign,

0:26:120:26:14

Theresa May did something 15 more times than Jeremy Corbyn.

0:26:140:26:17

-What was it?

-Changed her shoes.

0:26:170:26:19

-BELL

-Change her shoes.

-Correct, Paul.

0:26:190:26:21

Well done, it was change her shoes.

0:26:210:26:23

May wore 15 different pairs of shoes while Corbyn wore...

0:26:230:26:26

Well, to be fair, hers were covered in wheat.

0:26:290:26:32

Wheat and mud.

0:26:320:26:34

So, yeah, just one pair of shoes. That's nothing.

0:26:340:26:37

My husband's had the same pants on since the referendum.

0:26:370:26:41

In 1975.

0:26:410:26:44

What did Ruth Davidson say about Theresa May that's quite hard

0:26:440:26:47

to believe?

0:26:470:26:48

-BELL

-She's a laugh.

0:26:480:26:51

Indeed, yes. No, she did. She told The Sunday Times...

0:26:510:26:54

Knock-knock. Who's there? Theresa May.

0:27:000:27:02

Only joking, it's Amber Rudd!

0:27:020:27:04

LAUGHTER

0:27:040:27:07

Fingers back on buzzers.

0:27:070:27:09

What did Jacob Rees-Mogg do for the first time this election?

0:27:090:27:12

-BUZZER

-He went to a tattoo parlour.

0:27:120:27:15

He did. With his son.

0:27:150:27:17

Your chance to have Gladstone imprinted on your chest?

0:27:170:27:20

But there was a poster in the window saying that the Tories were

0:27:200:27:24

rubbish and scum and all that,

0:27:240:27:26

so he chose not to go in but had his photograph taken outside.

0:27:260:27:29

Whether that's the answer to the question or not,

0:27:290:27:31

-I want points for that cos that was good.

-You're so demanding.

0:27:310:27:34

-No, it's the wrong answer.

-But it is true, it did happen.

0:27:340:27:37

-Yes.

-He took his family campaigning. And they all look like...well, him.

0:27:370:27:43

He joined Instagram.

0:27:430:27:45

ROSS LAUGHS Yes.

0:27:450:27:47

He's only just got the wireless!

0:27:470:27:50

I'm laughing along - "Instagram"! Ha-ha! What's that?

0:27:500:27:56

It's where you...

0:27:560:27:58

If you're at a party,

0:27:580:28:00

somebody turns up dressed as powdered soup and strips.

0:28:000:28:03

LAUGHTER

0:28:050:28:07

-Sounds terrific!

-It's good.

0:28:090:28:11

I thought I was the only one that went to those sort of parties.

0:28:110:28:15

Did you see...

0:28:150:28:16

My favourite bit of the election coverage last night on the BBC

0:28:160:28:20

was where he was being interviewed and this bloke was just...

0:28:200:28:23

The timing was perfect.

0:28:230:28:25

A fella just walked in behind and just started dismantling the set.

0:28:250:28:29

And Rees-Mogg's there going,

0:28:290:28:30

"Well, obviously, it was..." And this fella's just like this,

0:28:300:28:33

like Morecambe and Wise, in the background. It was perfect.

0:28:330:28:37

And what is not allowed to exceed four inches

0:28:370:28:41

-during an election campaign?

-Oh, God, come on. Come on.

0:28:410:28:44

-Everyone knows that.

-What is not allowed to exceed four inches

0:28:440:28:48

-during an election campaign?

-The type size of the word "Tory".

0:28:480:28:53

"Labour".

0:28:530:28:55

"Ukip".

0:28:550:28:57

Something that when you're campaigning you wear.

0:28:570:29:01

-Rosette.

-Yes, absolutely.

0:29:010:29:03

Well, how do the Monster Ravings get round that, then?

0:29:030:29:07

Unbelievable.

0:29:070:29:09

The amount of work I've done for them. Shocking.

0:29:090:29:13

What did we find out is older than 11 members of the previous cabinet?

0:29:130:29:18

Jeremy Corbyn's shoes?

0:29:180:29:20

-His beard.

-Yes, his beard, absolutely.

0:29:200:29:24

He grew it straight after he dumped Diane Abbott, apparently,

0:29:240:29:27

but unfortunately she still recognised him.

0:29:270:29:31

What was particularly unusual about Diane Abbott's election leaflet?

0:29:310:29:35

It said, "Vote Tory"?

0:29:350:29:39

No, it was partly printed in Norwegian.

0:29:390:29:42

LAUGHTER

0:29:420:29:45

Now, Jeremy Corbyn was asked what he thought of his critics.

0:29:450:29:48

Do you know how he replied?

0:29:480:29:51

-BUZZER

-I don't believe in personal abuse.

0:29:510:29:54

Erm... Shall we have a look? And you can see how close you are.

0:29:540:29:58

There are cynics who calculate these things in politics who say,

0:29:580:30:01

"Well, Labour said this, Tories said that, you know,

0:30:010:30:03

"Nye, nye, nye, nye, nye, meh, meh, meh, meh, meh."

0:30:030:30:09

APPLAUSE

0:30:090:30:12

And finally in this round, have a look at this picture and tell me

0:30:120:30:16

which one of these microphones hits Boris Johnson in the face.

0:30:160:30:20

BUZZER

0:30:200:30:22

-No, you've all got to pick one, OK?

-I'll go for the biggest blue one.

0:30:220:30:25

-ALAN:

-I'll go for the red one.

-I'll go for the one that says "ORF".

0:30:250:30:28

-I'll go for that black one on the end there, on the left.

-OK.

0:30:280:30:31

-Shall we have a look?

-Yeah.

0:30:310:30:33

The people voted by a convincing majority...

0:30:330:30:36

-ALAN:

-Red one's moving up.

-Go on! Come on, blue!

0:30:360:30:39

-Go on, blue, go on, blue! Come on!

-Go on, red!

0:30:390:30:41

Go on, son, take it up, son! Blue, blue, blue!

0:30:410:30:46

CHEERING

0:30:460:30:48

APPLAUSE

0:30:480:30:50

That was my favourite moment of the campaign.

0:30:530:30:55

Boris Johnson turned to the camera and said to someone,

0:30:550:30:58

"Can you actually imagine Diane Abbott being Home Secretary?"

0:30:580:31:02

Says Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson!

0:31:020:31:06

LAUGHTER

0:31:060:31:08

Which means, at the end of this round, Ian and Ross have 4

0:31:080:31:12

and Paul and Alan have 6.

0:31:120:31:15

APPLAUSE

0:31:150:31:18

OK, time now for the Missing Words Round,

0:31:230:31:26

which this week features as its guest publication

0:31:260:31:29

House of Commons New Members' Guidebook,

0:31:290:31:32

which is given to all new MPs.

0:31:320:31:34

And we start with...

0:31:340:31:36

Is it, "Please do not resign as Prime Minister"?

0:31:410:31:45

Do not order envelopes.

0:31:450:31:47

I think, Paul, you're the nearest there. It's...

0:31:470:31:49

I always thought they got their stationary when the Speaker shouted,

0:31:560:31:59

"Order, order!"

0:31:590:32:01

LAUGHTER

0:32:010:32:04

-Sorry, Ian.

-No, it's good.

-Was it?

-No.

0:32:040:32:08

Yeah, look, Alan was writing it down.

0:32:080:32:11

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:32:110:32:14

OK, and the next one...

0:32:160:32:18

Is it by "having passionate sex on the central reservation of the A52?"

0:32:240:32:28

It is, well done! No, it's not, it's not.

0:32:280:32:32

-Is it by using a hairdryer? Pointing a hairdryer.

-Absolutely.

0:32:320:32:35

This is Jean Brooks, who's become an unlikely star after she was spotted

0:32:350:32:39

standing in her front garden using her hairdryer as a false speed gun.

0:32:390:32:43

Let's have a look at her in action.

0:32:430:32:45

LAUGHTER

0:32:470:32:50

-ROSS:

-The only thing here, though, what she's not fully thought through

0:32:500:32:55

is that just looks like she's got a gun.

0:32:550:32:59

-She's got sunburn, too.

-Yeah.

-Mmm.

-Over that tattoo.

0:32:590:33:02

What does that say? "I love safety".

0:33:020:33:06

LAUGHTER

0:33:060:33:08

OK, next one.

0:33:120:33:14

-ROSS:

-Cheesy Wotsit lookalike.

0:33:180:33:22

Covfefe of the Year.

0:33:220:33:24

It's actually...

0:33:250:33:27

A reporter this week tweeted the champions board at one of the

0:33:290:33:32

Trump National Golf Clubs. Let's have a look.

0:33:320:33:35

Oh, well, that's not rigged, then(!)

0:33:370:33:40

Also this week, Vladimir Putin was interviewed by American

0:33:400:33:43

news anchor Megyn Kelly, who said...

0:33:430:33:46

No, Megyn, don't tell him about your family!

0:33:530:33:57

Next...

0:33:570:33:58

Oh, is this from the Members' Handbook, Alan?

0:34:020:34:04

Yeah, it's whenever you're going to mention them in a speech.

0:34:040:34:07

What about if you're going to use part of their speech and pass it off...?

0:34:070:34:10

LAUGHTER

0:34:100:34:12

That's only Amber Rudd who's ever done...known to do that.

0:34:120:34:15

-He's so hurt.

-Aw!

0:34:170:34:20

Yeah, actually, the correct wording is...

0:34:200:34:23

The guide also gives a list of catering outlets and bars

0:34:260:34:29

where you can enjoy...

0:34:290:34:30

What, no elevenses?!

0:34:380:34:40

Next...

0:34:400:34:42

-ALAN:

-Photograph of The Beatles.

0:34:440:34:47

He's the one on rhythm guitar, apparently.

0:34:470:34:50

-ROSS:

-It's in the snow, wasn't it?

-It was.

-On a mountain.

-Yeah...

0:34:500:34:54

A Beatles' fan has spotted John Lennon's face in

0:34:560:34:59

a snowy arctic mountain near the North Pole. Let's have a look.

0:34:590:35:03

Oh, yeah, there it is.

0:35:030:35:05

That's very, very good.

0:35:050:35:06

Supposed to "imagine".

0:35:060:35:09

Yay!

0:35:090:35:11

It's supposed to look like the front cover of Sgt Pepper.

0:35:110:35:14

And just a bit higher up, it looks exactly like the White Album.

0:35:140:35:19

Next...

0:35:190:35:21

-ALAN:

-Expose your genitals.

0:35:250:35:27

Or your "supporters" as it's sometimes known.

0:35:270:35:30

That's bowing to the Speaker's chair, isn't it, when you leave.

0:35:300:35:33

-You see them do it. Yeah, bowing.

-That's right...

0:35:330:35:35

It's an old-fashioned tradition,

0:35:390:35:41

although there are some modern elements to the House of Commons.

0:35:410:35:43

For instance, for the last eight years they've had

0:35:430:35:46

a compact miniature Speaker.

0:35:460:35:48

LAUGHTER

0:35:480:35:51

Size shaming!

0:35:510:35:53

Well, why not?

0:35:530:35:56

LAUGHTER

0:35:560:35:58

Next...

0:35:580:35:59

Under Boris Johnson.

0:36:020:36:04

We aim to have you sworn in.

0:36:060:36:08

Yes, it's pretty much what you said.

0:36:080:36:10

But the wording is "up and running".

0:36:100:36:13

Up and running in a week - just one of many reasons why I'm not an MP.

0:36:130:36:17

Next...

0:36:170:36:19

Meeting Scotsman in pub for a joke.

0:36:230:36:27

-Erm, football - playing football.

-Football.

0:36:270:36:30

-It is...

-Oh!

-Let's have a look.

0:36:300:36:34

'Woohoo! Congratulations!'

0:36:360:36:39

She's good!

0:36:390:36:40

She's very good on the cross.

0:36:440:36:46

LAUGHTER

0:36:460:36:49

Erm, that was spotted at a festival in Limerick.

0:36:520:36:55

There has to be a limerick about a nun and a policeman, surely?

0:36:550:36:59

There once was a copper from Cork Who pestered a nun with a fork...

0:36:590:37:04

To his surprise, it went in his eyes...

0:37:040:37:07

And...there was residue of some pork.

0:37:070:37:11

LAUGHTER

0:37:110:37:12

What about, he was heard to utter, "I'd like it with butter,"

0:37:120:37:15

-but unfortunately they could only find Stork.

-Yes!

0:37:150:37:18

-Ooh!

-It's very good!

0:37:180:37:20

APPLAUSE

0:37:200:37:22

And lastly...

0:37:220:37:24

Eyebrow!

0:37:260:37:28

-"I invented the eyebrow!"

-No, it was in fact the Magnum.

0:37:280:37:32

-It was the Magnum ice cream.

-Apparently so...

0:37:320:37:36

He wanted a choc ice with vanilla ice cream in it

0:37:360:37:39

that he could have a stick, and then he, he, apparently...

0:37:390:37:42

he spoke to somebody and they did some sort of prototype...

0:37:420:37:46

He must have got Q to do it for him.

0:37:460:37:48

It would've have been quite an easy job for Q, really,

0:37:480:37:50

-just to stick a stick into a bloody choc ice!

-Can I just say?

0:37:500:37:53

The country's falling apart, there's no-one leading it,

0:37:530:37:55

we're into an age of instability, there's the EU elections coming up,

0:37:550:37:59

and all you can talk about is flaming choc ices and sticks.

0:37:590:38:03

No, a flaming choc ice wouldn't work, Alan, no.

0:38:030:38:06

LAUGHTER

0:38:060:38:08

That's why, you know, in the end, you had to go.

0:38:080:38:10

LAUGHTER

0:38:100:38:13

Do you want to know the final scores?

0:38:130:38:15

Put it this way - if we've lost, we'll still claim a victory,

0:38:150:38:18

-cos that seems to be...

-APPLAUSE

0:38:180:38:21

..seems to be the way that it's going.

0:38:210:38:24

That's right, claim your victory, then,

0:38:240:38:27

because Ian and Ross have 8, and Paul and Alan have 9.

0:38:270:38:31

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:38:310:38:35

On which note we say thank you to our panellists,

0:38:370:38:40

Ian Hislop and Ross Noble, Paul Merton and Alan Johnson,

0:38:400:38:43

and I leave you with news that on the campaign trail,

0:38:430:38:46

Tim Farron's day helping out in an IVF clinic doesn't go that well.

0:38:460:38:52

LAUGHTER

0:38:520:38:54

In Somerset, after steering his MP to victory,

0:38:580:39:01

Jacob Rees-Mogg's campaign manager heads for home.

0:39:010:39:05

LAUGHTER

0:39:050:39:07

After losing 21 seats in the snap election,

0:39:090:39:12

Nicola Sturgeon gets ready for her first meeting with Theresa May.

0:39:120:39:16

LAUGHTER

0:39:160:39:18

To cap an almost perfect week,

0:39:180:39:20

Jeremy Corbyn's car runs over Laura Kuenssberg's foot.

0:39:200:39:24

LAUGHTER

0:39:240:39:27

And in London, as Theresa May's car pulls up outside her house,

0:39:270:39:30

one resident decides she'll pretend to be out.

0:39:300:39:34

LAUGHTER

0:39:340:39:37

Goodnight!

0:39:370:39:38

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:39:380:39:41

It turns out, apparently, that Paul didn't say the thing

0:40:150:40:18

about Amber Rudd, it was Ian.

0:40:180:40:20

What?!

0:40:200:40:21

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:40:210:40:24

What?!

0:40:250:40:28

What?!

0:40:280:40:30

You are exposed.

0:40:300:40:34

That is the first joke I have written since 1988!

0:40:340:40:38

Apparently they're only joking.

0:40:380:40:40

He's good, ain't he?

0:40:430:40:45

If they're looking for a career in comedy, I'll have a word with them!

0:40:450:40:48
