It's a Michael Jackson reference. He had relationships with three on the right, and Billie Jean was his stalker who was the subject of the song by the same name. "Billie Jean is not my lover, she's just a girl who claims that I am the one, but the kid is not my son..."

Shall we slip in an "allegedly" for the Macaulay Culkin reference? Don't want Jacko's lawyers getting on to us.

Oh, and happy May Day everyone! Time for Robert to go jump off the Magdalen Bridge, but not before he heads to the polling station!
