Another gaffe for Perry

Foot in mouth Rick Perry continues to talk his way out of the chance of standing as Republican candidate in next year's American Presidential elections.

Having previously threatened to invade Mexico he now told an audience in New Hampshire that "actually the reason that we fought the revolution in the 16th century was to get away from that kind of onerous crown if you will".

Purveyors of the historical record will note that the Texan governor was a couple of centuries out with his dates for the American war of Independence.

By all accounts coming out of across the Atlantic,former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is now clearly the front runner whilst Perry has lost second place in the polls to a former chief executive of a pizza chain,Herman Cain
