I have just watched the UKIP Thanet South party showing how politically naive they are.
Their so called PR person, Liz Langton, arranged for her and her hubby to be videoed against the background of their collection of clowns.
Was she oblivious to the message that sends out? The BBC want to show them and UKIP as a party of clowns and she duely obliged.
Visiting UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson was taped referring to a Thai supporter as “a ting tong from somewhere”, well that's par for the course for Nigel's hand picked MEPs!
Then there was the UKIP District Councillor, Rozanne Duncan below who is now ex UKIP as a result of her on TV confession that she had a problem with negroes.

Let us not forget Thanet UKIP Party Chairman and former member of the National Front Martin Heale
He is a long time Farage associate which is I presume why he is still allowed in UKIP. He has run failed election campaigns before so is well qualified for UKIP.
I know a number of honest decent people kicked out, or proscribed from UKIP on the grounds of false smears of membership of the NF, BNP or even the clearly non-racist UK First but if the cult leader smiles on you then you are untouchable. Its a bit like Wolf Hall without the good looking women.
It was touching to see the naive ordinary members describing UKIP's tolerance of non Farage views and its democracy. They have obviously never met or worked with Nigel Farage. Fair hearings just don't happen in UKIP, stich ups are preferred.
I had a visit last summer from Godders pal Michael Crick complete with camera crew to interview me about UKIP's doings. That was followed up by a number of phone calls fromm BBC journo Connor Spackman to support their Paronama programme. Their agenda was quite clear, they wanted me to give them a racist quote. They were both sadly disappointed.
Yet its me and Del Young who are vilified by the anonymous smear brigade as UKIP traitors! Complete lies! Del and me were never caught by the media 's attempts to smear UKIP as racist but there are Farage annointed MEPs and District Councillors who have fallen too easily into the media traps. Del and I are both of course now UKIP proscribed people for getting it right.
PS This is what the BBC love. I am grateful for the critique
