WATCH: UKIP Candidate’s Bizarre Manifesto

A co-conspirator has emailed in this bizarre video of one of UKIP’s MEP candidate hopefuls for the North East, Philip Broughton. It turns out he has an alter ego, running a wrestling company under the name Philip McMahon. Who as you can see is, um, a bit odd. Guido fully endorses Philip’s attempts to have a career outside of politics before offering himself for public service. He might need to work on the whole image thing though…

    If you want entertain, had a look at this video, the deputy leader of the Scottish National Party in Glasgow has plead guilty to threatening a disabled man.

    I’m pretty sure the users of this blog aren’t too familiar with modern wrestling, so here’s a few tips as to what this bloke is doing in the video……

    1) he’s pretending to be an arrogant arsehole.

    2) he’s pretending to be an arrogant arsehole because that his is role in wrestling, because, and this may come as a shock….wrestling isn’t real. It’s scripted and he is the “bad guy” sent out to whip up the atmosphere.

    He’s no Vince McMohan, but he’s giving it a good go.

    Anyone under forty will not fall for this anti-UKIP smear as they would have seen at least some WWE in their time.

    Fifty years ago an eccentric was someone like Screaming Lord Sutch who campaigned for Votes at 18, pop music only radio stations, 24-hour pub opening. Then there was Quentin Crisp who wanted homosexual acts legalised and celebrated, John Creasey who thought that government should be conducted by representatives of the professions, management, and workers so that there would be no difference between parties and Eoch Powell who thought that a huge influx of black people would lead to riots, racism and resentment
