UKIP Flash in the Pan


I do wish the mindless media would stop banging on about UKIP. Those of us with memories longer than a goldfish will remember “return to your constituencies and prepare for government” from David Steele, and more recently how Cleggmania was going to change the face of British politics because “everyone agreed with Nick”.

Both were flashes in the pan and rapidly forgotten when the hard reality of a general election ballot form was put in front of people.

However irritating Farrage is, he’s not stupid and he knows this. It is why he’s got everyone – the Tories in particular – running around like headless chickens doing what he wants right now because he knows that in two years time after the next election he and his party will be just more of yesterday’s news.
