As the leadership contest gathers pace, here are some choice quotes from candidate David Noakes. NB He failed to get elected in Truro and St Austell last year, so let's not hold our breath....
Reiterating the party's usual absence of EU knowledge, Noakes is taking the alarmist approach once again, warning that "a vote for the Lib Dems, Conservatives or Labour is a vote for the EU police state". Oo-er!
And let's not overlook his intention to address every local councillor in the UK in order to "warn them they and their counties will be abolished by the EU Regionalisation Plan". Double oo-er!
Furthermore, as hilariously performed in his very unprofessional and most undignified YouTube film - aided by his super-star-in-the-making interviewer - he states that "the aim is to get every British person to make the link; EU equals police state".
I thought EU equalled European Union, but who am I to question Le Noakes!
Continuing to aggravate his self-humiliation, he garbles that "no MP should be able to hold a surgery without a UKIP member being present explaining the truth about the EU dictatorship and the fact that that MP will lose both his seat in Parliament once we are imprisoned in the EU".
A UKIP surveillance operation to impede democracy? Sounds a bit like a police state dont'cha reckon?!
Not to be outdone, Nigel Farage has made a shocking revelation: "UKIP is a national political party, and it must begin to act like one".
Who would have thought.....
