From Kilroy to Rustie Lee - the demise of UKIPs celebrity culture....

UKIPs spectacular fall from the heights of their 12 MEPs elected in 2004 is summed up by the quality of celebrity they are able to attract to the euro-crank cause. In 2004, it was permatanned chat show host Robert Kilroy-Silk. In 2009, their star attraction is set to be obscure "celebrity" TV chef Rustie Lee whose last regular TV gig was on "TV-am" back in the 1980s.

Of course, as UKIPwatch pointed out a couple of weeks ago, standing as a UKIP parliamentary candidate is not a cheap hobby. Bidding to become a professional europhobe will cost you a £250 deposit just to be interviewed and a further £800 to be a full candidate for the 2009 euro elections. Rustie will have to get selling her new cookery book "A Taste of the Caribbean" to raise the cash.

Poor old Nigel mixing up list system and C list again.

Off thread but I see that Ashley Mote has written to the NSPCC, the UK's leading children's charity to tell it off for accepting EU money. Seems that fraud is not the full extent of how low he can go.

In a hilarious twist, one of the UKIP MEPs has issued a statement saying that the "cause of Britain's independence" may need someone willing to go to jail to draw attention to how oppressive the EU has become.

It's a pity Mote left - they could have killed two birds with one stone.
