Here's what I wrote last May. "The thing about protest parties, in full view of the media, is that they provide a platform for non-entities and excommunicated local politicians with galactic egos. They need Ukip, and if they represent an ethnic minority, Ukip needs them. But this is a Faustian pact. The problem with craven narcissists seeking a platform is they tend to be a liability."
Now we get this. Predicable and predicted. Though I notice Ukipists don't comment here anymore. Can't say I'm surprised. After the malicious "sour grapes" accusations and their bovine posturing, I wouldn't show my face around here either.
