Joey Barton is one of the most outspoken footballers of our time. In this age of social media, that means every and any of his opinions are out in the public scope through the wonder of twitter. Barton frequently engages in debates about various matters in the football world with fellow players, pundits and fans; even venturing out into the world of golf or boxing for events like the Masters and the recent Mayweather-Pacquaio fight of the century.

But now, Barton has delved into the UK General Election. For those who don't understand politics in this country, never mind across the Irish sea, don't worry - Joey is here to narrate the way.

Good oul Joey not beating around the bush on Milliband on a tough day for the Labour leader.

Or rather, the former Labour leader.

This was after Brand appeared in a video with then leader Ed Milliband promoting a Labour vote just four days ago. Sneaky Barton is wondering if Brand's appearance turned voters off Labour. Hmmm...

Then it was the turn of UKIP leader Nigel Farage to face the wrath of Barton.

Needless to say that that was the final straw for Farage who - like Ed Milliband, and Liberal Democrats leader Nick Clegg - also resigned.

Thanks to Joey Barton for helping us through some major events in the world outside of sport. Next week,
