British politics is as refined a dance as a regency débutantes' ball. And like the refined movements of the dances, they are designed to exclude those who don't know the steps, and so utterly baffling to outsiders. UKIP, whose main dancing experience, if we're extending the metaphor to breaking point, is in the Mosh Pit of a metal club, aren't invited to a Queen Charlotte's ball, because they haven't got the right clothes, don't know anyone there, what they're doing or why. UKIP gatecrashing a Season ball will ruin it for everyone, and they will look stupid. Because UKIP aren't prepared to answer the "so what...?", they aren't taken seriously: they haven't bothered to learn the steps to the dance. They're not even aware that such dancing exists and so they're confused when they see it.He continues:
'KIPpers will blame a media conspiracy for misrepresenting them. They will rant about LibLabCon "not listening to the views of ordinary people", insulting "ordinary people" by the suggestion they're like Roseanne Duncan. UKIP is not the answer to the problems that ail the UK, and nor will the "media conspiracy" make UKIP "more popular" as 'KIPpers often allege. All it will do is taint the few good ideas it has, by association with people like Ms Duncan and Janice Atkinson, while bringing back a kind of low-level bigotry we'd once thought abolished back into political discourse. UKIP is poisoning the well of debate. But on the bright side, the more the views of ranty, stupid people whom the party has seen fit to put in positions of responsibility see the light of day, the less attractive it will become.
These people are freaks to be pitied and laughed at, which is why they're stuck in depressing shitholes at the end of the line, and working with UKIP not a grown-up party. Anyone with talent or drive has left, and UKIP's South Thanet constituency branch is left with a detritus of lost souls, confused by the modern world, whom another party would happily let deliver leaflets, but whom they would calmly not call when they needed anything more serious doing.
Is there a media conspiracy against UKIP? Only insofar as the Body Politic needs antibodies to expel a parasite. Expect more revelations of nonsense from 'KIPpers in the run up to the election. Expect scrutiny of candidates and activists in places where they might win. Only a loony could think this unreasonable. UKIP has drawn the bigoted, Euro-obsessed puss from the Tory wound, and will roll up the bigots and opportunists from other parties before destroying itself. The only question is how much damage it does to the country while this process goes on. UKIP are poisonous. But it will be fun to watch them tear themselves apart.What could I possibly add?
