But look what has happened now.... The Western Morning News has this week printed a picture of Farage, looking more than ever like Bart Simpson, under the heading "Don't give the vote to evil criminals". How appropriate that he should be standing in front of an Ind Dem logo.
And how VERY appropriate that it was published the very week that OLAF officials are in the UK interviewing various members of UKIP about UKIP MEP's alleged misuse of EU funds - perhaps this explains why Derek Clark MEP and Don Ransom - his rather dim Regional Organiser- recently spent three days in Clark’s Nottingham office destroying files and deleting email records!
That this comes just before the Spring rally in Exeter is likely to be hugely damaging to the party's image.
We might have thought that not even Farage could screw up the South West for UKIP, but well done Nigel - you've done it!
And well done Malcolm, for jumping to attention every time the Fuhrer snaps his fingers.
Remember Malcolm, when we kill Caesar, we must also kill Caesar's children.... all of them!
