Immigration used to be the issue that dare not speak its name except by the BNP. They have now imploded and UKIP has moved into take over that space now it is safe to do so. It is clearly the right policy to go on and it was good to see Farage going strongly at it in his Exeter speech today. Immigration is the number one issue with middle England and its link to the EU is crystal clear.
Less good was the Farage approved decision to invite one of his less savoury MEP friends from Bulgaria one Stavi Binev named by the former US ambassador in a Wikileaked confidential telegram as involved in prostitution and trading narcotics and stolen cars. Binev was challenged about this by Crick on C4 News tonight and denied these allegations claiming the US envoy had been listening to his enemies. This will now be the standard media tactic to undermine Farage who does have many MEP associates with similar backgrounds in the pan European group of MEPs he leads. You will see a lot more of this post Eastleigh.
It was disappointing but not surprising to read Crick saying that Mrs James would take the place on the UKIP SE region MEP slate previously occupied by Marta Andreasen. UKIP cannot get us out if the EU lead from, and paid by, Brussels. Taking Brussels thirty pieces of silver clearly remain Farage's top priority. Listen to the end of his speech.
For those EU crats wanting to pinch Russian money in Cyprus consider the chilling report that controversial Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky has been found dead at his home in Surrey. Reports claim he took his own life.
Andrew Neil remarks, "Old KGB saying: any fool could commit murder but it takes an artist to make it look like suicide."
Farage also better look at what happened to Mr Huhne at the hands of Ms Pryce and ponder the old saw, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned before he adds to his collection. The ladies might have sympathic journalist friends like Ms Pryce's Ms Oakeshott.
