    haha a few minutes earlier Cameron said something like all Governments suffer protest votes in by-elections, so was this a case of the Coalition protesting against itself…?!

    Gove actually came across OK on Five Live today saying that people are fed up with politicians spinning everything and it was a disaster. Hallelujah.

      That signals two things.

      1. Gove will go missing this afternoon.

      2. Cameron’s basement will have a newly-concreted floor by tomorrow morning.

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.”
