It is now clear that a strand of the BBC's sabotage UKIP strategy is to wheel on UKIP idiots and let them dig themselves and UKIP into a huge hole. On Friday it was Winston MacKenzie -did he ever win a championship belt for boxing? Today Monday it was William Legge aka the belted Earl of Dartmouth. He is excruciatingly embarassing in his stuttering rambling waffling hand waving rants ill supported by relevant facts. I remember having lunch with him and the late Pieis Merchant at the Highway Man Inn in Decvon where Legge produced a quite banal series of hand waving no-sequiturs that left Piers and me speechless. We were very grateful when his minder arrived to cart him off back to mummy and the family pile. Legge is a political liability as Farage well knows.
He and other most UKIP MEPs should be kept off the TV as much as possible. They are in Lenin's phrase useful fools for the oppostion and sharp media types like Andrew Neil. Only Farage, Carswell, O'Flynn and Diane James can present UKIP policies on TV. Legge, Jill Seymour , Nuttall and the rest of UKIP's MEPs lose UKIP votes every time they open their mouths and prove the BBC's thesis that UKIP is full of incompetents.
The BBC just has to sit back and let them prove the BBC thesis by simply opening their mouths and vomiting ill thought out garbage all over the studio..
