Just a few weeks after a press conference by the Europe of Freedom & Democracy (EFD), chaired by Front Nationale's Marine le Pen, confirmed that Godfrey Bloom is not merely a short-term member of the pan-EU party, but actually a founder member and board member, we see some interesting developments.
Bloom's fellow EAF board member, Kent Ekeroth, of the Sweden Democrats, has been the centre of scandal after a racially-motivated attack in Stockholm where he attacked an immigrant while one of his colleagues assaulted a woman.
The EAF has attracted considerable media attention, and its true colours have been exposed. The press are circling, and the EAF is in a corner. UKIP is part of the big story.
Bloom has made an extraordinary statement concerning his membership of this far-right gang of racist thugs.
And now, he has apparently been persuaded to resign his seat on grounds of 'ill-health'.
Bloom will hand his seat over next month, journalists are being told.
This is the tip of the iceberg
