AN old sailor with a mouth like a, well, sailor has been banned from owning a television or radio because he fills the air with expletives whenever he sees politicians on TV.

Martin Soloman, 65, had the ban slapped on him as a last resort by a judge who also jailed him for 14 months after he admitted breaching an Asbo for the 27th and 28th times.

He got his first jail sentence shortly before the last general election when politicians on Question Time whipped him up into foul -mouthed frenzy of abuse.

“He comes home [from the pub] and watches TV at some ridiculous amplified volume, shouts remarks at the TV and his neighbours…and then falls asleep with the TV on. It has got to stop – he knows that,” said his solicitor.
