The guys at Don’t Panic who put the blue plaque on Jacqui Smith’s wall have been round to Alan Duncan’s place to help out with the gardening. Hilarious, watch it until the end:
Essentially they nominated three different properties in two years to be their main residence. We paid for their million pound property portfolio. Plus a few of the usual “accidental” double claims. We also pay £600 every month for their food bills. Bear in mind these two troughers have a combined household income of some £300,000 from the taxpayer, yet they still feel we need to pay their Waitrose bills. Every little helps, eh?
Public service can be so so rewarding…

Yesterday Guido spoke to a number of UKIP staffers – they were saying they are overwhelmed with new support. They were particularly excited by the cross-over from former Labour voters. UKIP plan to run a bigger poster campaign than they did at the last Euro-elections. Punters are even betting on them beating Labour for third place. Tebbit was right, UKIP look to be the big beneficiary of the revulsion at the expense scandals engulfing the three major parties.
For the euro-elections YouGov have the Tories on only 28%, Labour on 22%, LibDems on 19% and UKIP have risen 12 points this week to 19%, the BNP are on 4%. Despite Labour propaganda about the dangers of the BNP, it looks like it will be UKIP who are going to be the big winners from the anti-political zeitgeist.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:
“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
