UKIP: The surreal world of John Humberstone
We were interested to hear that John Humberstone - UKIP PPC for Wrexham - has been handing out leaflets calling for a halt on immigration to Britain.
We were rather amused to be told that the leaflets in question were being distributed by several non-English speaking gentlemen from Sri Lanka!
The irony of this was apparently lost on Mr Humberstone, John Bufton and their Sri Lankan colleagues.
Some UKIP PPCs have been using a leaflet featuring a photo of a Native American to highlight the consequences of uncontrolled immigration.
A few wags in UKIP have suggested that the ‘Native American’ is actually a 1970's publicity photo of David Bannerman and dates from his time in The Village People.
Here is an example:
Native American or is it David Bannerman?
