The launch of UKIPs campaign for the Scottish Parliament elections in Edinburgh saw some of Fleet Street's finest travel to take in the show.
The event was held at the Dynamic Earth exhibition centre, with a man dressed as a dinosaur guarding the entrance. A stroke of genius considering that UKIP's leaders, and the party's campaign literature, are distinctly prehistoric.
Most disappointing was the no-show of Nigel Farage (every night gossip columnists must thank their lucky stars for the existence of naughty Nigel). Apparently Nigel was too busy preparing UKIP's court case against the Electoral Commission (UKIP faces bankruptcy if it loses, after the election watchdog ordered them to repay £360,000 that had not been properly accounted for).
Still, there's more chance of Ian Paisley becoming Pope than of UKIP getting any MSPs elected.
