The farce continues at UKIP. The Times carried news at the weekend that Delroy Young, the only black member of UKIP's national executive, had received a telephone death threat, during which several men threatened to kill him on the order of a senior UKIP official.
In the words of a UKIP insider: "This is causing the party hierarchy a huge amount of embarrassment", an impressive display of stating the blindingly obvious if ever there was one.
David Cameron famously described UKIP as a bunch of "fruitcakes and closet racists", causing u-kippers to froth with indignant rage. Faced with these allegations and Godfrey Bloom's choice attack on the Archbishop of York, perhaps they will admit their misjudgement.
