    Good to see UKIP, the nearest thing Britain has to the GOP, imploding.

    The UKIP pantomime continues, despite all.
    Farage is our second best political buffoon(Boris Johnson being the best).
    Although his party is a poisonous element in Britain, he does add to the gaiety of politics!

    The difference being, while I am no great fan of Boris, I would put serious money on him becoming PM after the 2020 General Election, whereas I wouldn't put a penny on Farage being anything (other than a minor footnote in British political history) by then.

    I wonder what the wording of the Farage Führer Oath will be.

    I'm surprised Aryan...I mean Aaron (RJ's resident Farage fan) hasn't had anything to say about this yet. Doubtless it will all be the BBC and the Guardian's fault and nothing to do with Ukip being an embarrassing right-wing clusterfuck.
