Today, as a service to my reader I am going to try to start a program of flagging up articles in the national and local press that touch upon UKIP and its goings on. I wil l also try and flag up those stories that are of particular interest to those who support UKIP, or those who support what UKIP stands for. We shall see if I have the stamina to keep this up, but at least I should try. If I have missed stuff, which I will enevitable do, then please flag it up in the comments.
The ongoing furore over Nigel Farage's comments to the President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy.

Con Home's comment section seems to tread the line.
There is plenty more where that came from. What is interesting is the comments section which are running wildly in Farage's favour no matter how pompous (and yes the Times editorial is a classic of the genre) they are. This is politics and sometimes to make a greater point, that the President of this country is an unelected Belgian politician and this is unacceptable then harsh words may be necessary. Sad but true. It may be rude to describe the man as a low grade bank clerk, but far ruder still to impose him above out heads with no vote, and none of the major parties even seriously considering a vote.
Finally a rather splendid riposte from Belgium.
