During an earnest interview about the flag debate on the steps of Parliament on Tuesday afternoon, Seymour was talking about the symbols associated with countries.
“You don’t actually have to have every national logo on the flag,” Seymour said. So far, so sensible.
Then this: “The French, for instance, love the coq.”
Seymour immediately realised what he’d said, losing his composure as he burst into hysterics.
Watch the video, it’s hilarious.
To be fair to Seymour, others started laughing first, and then he lost his composure.
