Amjad Bashir, a UKIP MEP, was suspended from the party on allegations of several naughty things.
Then, mere hours later, he announced that he had quit UKIP and joined the Conservatives.
That is the order of events but you wouldn’t think it from the Mail’s coverage. In their minds, ‘Farage was rocked by the defection’ and the allegations are ‘revenge for his defection’.
The Cameroid is delighted to get one back from UKIP. Meanwhile UKIP are sending the evidence they say they have to the police. It might amount to nothing, or it might give Cameroid a serious headache in the run-up to the election.
Still, the Cameroid is currently delighted to get a defector from UKIP. It takes the score from 2-nil to 2-1. Can Cameroid get the equaliser before May?
Or is this going to be the most spectacular own goal in political history?
Time will tell.
Meanwhile, in the socialist utopia of Wales (hey don’t blame me, Wales, you voted for them), taxpayer’s money is available to the right sort of private business. The sort hardly anyone actually agrees with. The Mail, this time, does not cry ‘racism’ at the objectors. Instead it is outraged. Those Muslims must not be allowed to kill animals without stunning them first. Hey, Daily Mail – Kosher slaughter is like that too. I dare you…
If there’s one thing the Daily Mail hates more than foreigners, it’s UKIP.
I don’t think I could ever drink enough to make sense of that.
Earlyish night tonight. A 1 pm start tomorrow so I have to be awake before noon. That’s the good part about this little job – the hours are very civilised.
They would be ideal hours for a night-writer…if only there weren’t so many of them.
