Amid the excitement (well minor interest), farce and toys-from-pram throwing of the UKIP selection process, it is easy to forget the heroics of the established MEPs who have bumbled along at their usual standard over the summer months.
First, there was Jeffrey Titford, who had to have a little chat with the police over the summer following allegations of "financial irregularities". The News of the World reported that the complaint came from none other than UKIP's Chairman in Ipswich and East Suffolk. Oh dear.
Second point of vague interest, possibly, is the ramblings of Godfrey Bloom. Back in 2004, Godfrey was UKIP's premier hotshot gobshite, spouting all sorts of offensive nonsense to the delight of the media. Of course since then, others elected alongside him have spent time in jail, been investigated by Olaf and generally behaved rather worse than merely waffling away like the pub bore.
In fact, UKIPwatch is struggling to find the motivation to post Bloom's recent thoughts on green energy. They were predictable and wrong. Is this the best Godders really can do these days? Come on Godders, raise your game. Some of us are waiting to be offended.
