Helmer and UKIP - a match made in heaven or a mere flight of fancy?

UKIP may have haemorrhaged party members and MEPs since 2004, but perhaps help is at hand from an unlikely source - step forward the Tories' answer to Godfrey Bloom, the egregious Roger Helmer MEP. Mr Helmer is, like most UKIP MEPs, a climate change denier who told Tory party conference, "You either believe it or you don't, ….and in my case, I don't!", adding "this whole issue has got completely out of hand. It has become a new religion. You have to believe it. If you do not believe it, you are a heretic. They would like to burn us at the stake - using recycled faggots!"

Furthermore, as a member of Better Off Out and the deeply-ironically named Freedom Association, Helmer is surely a u-kipper in disguise.

Or maybe not…

Perhaps this less than flattering article from UKIP MEP Jeffrey Titford is the reason why Helmer remains a recalcitrant Tory happiest embarrassing his party leader rather than a fully-fledged u-kipper.

Who is Roger Holmer?

...and it was a UKIP official (candidate?) who suggested that wind farms slow down the rotation of the earth.

Talking of Midlanders, could the week get worse for that Halistow guy? First the Tories bin him as a candidate and now the boy Nigel is looking for him. Ah well, if the funny hat fits...
