Talk about shooting yourself in the foot the sight of Helmer on TV trying to defend employing an Italian Brussels based secretary when hundreds of unemployed UK graduates would give their eye teeth for such a job was laughable for a party that claims to uphold British standards. Italian politics is not known for its probity or hard work so why employ an Italian rather than a Brit? The phrases no fool like an old fool and charity begins at home spring to mind.
The Tories are throwing everything at this by election, click

There is a list up on the white board for all to see and a less than perfect attendance will be career threatening for ambititious Tories. They are pulling out all the stops.
I wrote earlier that UKIP MEPs should be required to put in a full 7 day stint on the stump in Newark but have they?
Nigel was seen in Brussels on Thursday and Friday forming his pan European group to ensure his chauffeur driven limo and EU euros to reward his up and coming syscophants but the batlle is in Newark not Brussels!

UKIP are on a roll and could win even with the geriatric Helmer. I quote from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and some informative context:

If he does not win in Newark then this will have been UKIP's high water mark, a grubby tide mark on the bath tub of history..
Here is a possible picture of Helmer's Italian lady published by Guido Fawkes this evening. She is the dark haired one.
