On the Bongo Bongo land comments:
But the ticking off is unlikely to end the controversy over Mr Bloom\’s remarks, because Ukip is about to publish its list of candidates for next year\’s elections to the European Parliament. Several MPs have demanded that Mr Bloom be struck off the list, which Ukip\’s leasers are clearly not willing to do.
I\’m trying to recall how many MPs UKIP has. Hmm, that\’s none, isn\’t it? So, by definition, those calling for Godders to be off the list are not in UKIP.
And since when does a not a member of a political party get to decide who stands for that political party they\’re not a member of?
My views on the suitability of, say, Peter Hain or David Cameron running a whelk stall are pretty sulphurous. But I do acknowledge that the parties of liars and thieves have every right to propose them as candidates.
