It all went horribly wrong for the Swann on what was supposed to be her big day at the Conservative Party conference!
Having boasted rather too loudly and too often about how she would reveal to the Tories what a dire threat UKIP posed to them, it was clear that she was lining herself up for a fall, and oh boy did she fall.
With less effort than it takes to swat a fly, the Tories revoked her speakers pass, thus demonstrating to all and sundry how little of a threat UKIP really poses. She was simply shut down, and had to leave the venue with her tail between her legs.
This pathetic episode is just another example of how the party has become the biggest joke in British politics
