Farage Flops in Washington

 

Yesterday the immigration figures were out and they were a disaster for the government. After promising to reduce them to “tens of thousands” they overshot by hundreds of thousands, with 187,000 Bulgarians and Romanians alone applying for National Insurance numbers in 2014, entitling them to work and claim welfare. This is UKIP’s signature issue, EU immigration. After the LibLabCon parties mocked the idea of a flood of Bulgarians and Romanians coming it was an open goal for Nigel to show he had been proved right again on the issue that really moves the dial for UKIP. Where was he?

Speaking to an empty room in Washington D.C. to a handful of political nerds before flying back for UKIP’s spring conference this weekend. The media priorities are crazy, the press operation is amateurish, Paul “Gobby” Lambert was brought in to get a grip on the party’s media handling. Gobby knows that forward planning is key to setting the media agenda. Nigel himself may be on his way from Thanet to Westminster, however there is still a long way to go for UKIP HQ…

Survation: Farage 11 Points Ahead in Thanet

A much-needed boost for UKIP after previous polls showing Farage trailing in the seat…

UPDATE: Andrew Cooper, boss at rival pollsters Populus and late of Downing Street, says Survation has screwed up the data:

UPDATE II: Survation restate their position on past voting intention methodology – implicitly saying that it is in fact Andrew Cooper who doesn’t understand the data. Pointing out that 20% of a constituency churns between general elections.  We’ll find out which methodology works best on May 8…

Farage Flirts With the Far-Right

Nigel Farage has vowed UKIP will not “get into bed” with the French far-right leader Marine Le Pen, rejecting an alliance because of the “prejudice and anti-Semitism” in the Front National. Though when Le Pen brushed past in the European Parliament in Brussels last week, naughty Nige was overheard remarking “she’s so sexy”. “A good natured joke,” a UKIP spokesman is quick to insist. Farage’s bit of far-right…

UKIP Really Do Want To Go Back in Time

Techno Guido has uncovered what is perhaps the finest political website in Britain – behold UKIPcornwall.org:

ukip

It harks back to a more innocent time, when beer cost £1.70, phones were something you plugged into a socket in the wall and the plumber was called Peter.

UKIP, taking us back to dial up..

Angry ‘Kipper: Sorry For Swearing… “Cameron Still Chicken Sh*t Though”

leave-ukip-alone

After he was elevated to the level of Famous For Westminster for his NSFW review of last night’s Channel 4 drama, Guido can reveal the seriously angry ‘Kipper is one Harry Mason. And he’s released the following statement:

“I would like to apologise if I offended anybody with my language. I was so fuming last night I said things without thinking about them! and can quite understand how i can come across as foolish. I am now aware a documentary came out in 2009 called When boris met dave about the bullingdon club. But back then it was only between labour, libs and conservatives so no matter what the same puppeteer would be in power. Seen alot of green party members getting angry with me. I did not mean the green party was run by bankers i was talking about the mainstream parties. The only reason the greens are getting more members and more attention is because the conservatives and labour are wanting to put more parties in the lime light to dilate the attention from ukip. Cameron is still chicken shit though for a debate… So I apologise if I’ve offended you with my language hopefully I’ll do more videos in the future more intelligently than this one was done.”

Guido hopes this is not the end of Mr Mason’s fledgling vlogging career and is looking forward to his further erudite analysis of the general election campaign…

“Leave UKIP Alone!”

A very sweary NSFW treat from the a very upset UKIP voter who did not like last night’s Channel 4 drama:

 

“F**k you Channel 4, F**k your propaganda, because I’m voting UKIP, so f**k you. Thank you very much”. What a charmer…

It’s all gone a bit Britney Spears:

 

Leave UKIP alone!

1,000 Complaints and Counting for #100DaysOfUKIP

Channel 4′s race-baiting mockumentry is getting the full treatment. According to the Guardian:

“Ofcom said it had received 731 complaints following Monday night’s broadcast, which used actors alongside real life documentary footage for its fictional portrayal of Britain under Ukip rule. Channel 4 said it had received 250 comments about the programme from viewers. It did not specify the nature of the comments but it is likely that the majority were critical.”

You can complain to Ofcom here, should you be so inclined.

Everyone Flips Out at C4’s #100DaysOfUKIP

This apparently is what Guido would look like under a UKIP government:

Apparently…

Last night’s 100 Days of UKIP offering from Channel 4 has gone down like a cup of cold sick, and not just with the party fanboys:

‘Kipper’s should calm down a touch though, and remember dramas such as A Politician’s Wife and A Very British Coup – though to a lesser extent – hardly reflected well on the old parties. You can understand why the splicing of real party figures in with hyperbolic race baiting has wound them right round the bend though…

Quote of the Day

Labour candidate Clive Lewis tells the Staggers:

“I mean, in the multiverse there’s still three universes in a hundred where there’s a Green MP in Norwich, so anything could happen. I could be caught with my pants down behind a goat with Ed Miliband at the other end – well, hopefully that won’t happen.”
