Please look at today's Daily Politics by clicking on link and fast forward into 36 minutes. Bloom looked like and sounded like Colonel Blimp but judge for yourself. He was on with Tory MEP Vicky Ford a pleasant looking and pleasant sounding lady. Bloom soon degenerated into calling her a traitor, a Vichy collaborationist and joked he had missed a vote because it was a cocktail hour. It was a Farage type joke that fell flat and made Bloom look stupid. He was inarticulate compared to Ms Price and showed exactly why in a fptp election when you vote for a candidate not a party nobody will ever vote for Bloom or anyone else from the Cabal .
They were then joined by Green MEP Jean Lambert who seems to share Shirley Williams hairdresser and style consultant but even she looked presentable and sounded reasoanble and pleasant compared to Bloom.
The county council fptp elections due on 2nd May are far more important than the pointless but lucrative Europeans a year later. Parliamentary constituencies are built up from County Council electoral wards. These are the building blocks of UK political power as the LibDems showed in Eastleigh. Farage's EUKIP is just not interested. EUKIP want to get on the EU gravy train and take their 30 pieces of silver. They are like animals in a zoo that the EU crats keep for amusement. They serve the EU's purpose as well as Rumpy, Frumpy and Barroso do. The EU parliament was deliberately set up this way to attract the sort of people that are MEPs ie those who cannot be elected on their own merit but are party appartchiks par excellence.
