Animal-loving UKIP

What's that Flipper, seven miserable old men want to kill you?

Yes, seven UKIP MEPs joined another 10 MEPs to vote against an EU measures to further curb fishing with driftnets.

Fishing with driftnets is already banned in the EU due to the amount of dolphins and whales they catch (and kill) but the new measure, adopted by a massive majority (633 in favour) will further tighten the rules.

The increasingly amusing and anti-UKIP blog UKIP@Home also gets stuck in on behalf of dolphins and even includes an emotive picture to jolt UKIP members' conscience further.

Lassie is said to be worried.
