From The Sun's Whip column [not online as far as I can see, but relayed to me by the instigator, the lovely Annabelle, with whom I have had a number of rather enjoyable briefings].
Tory leader David Cameron may not be getting many bouquets from hardliners within his own party but a huge floral display as delivered to him yesterday from an arch-rival. UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage sent him a massive bunch of flowers after Dave's aides urges grassroots Conservatives to ditch Winston Churchill as their icon and embrace lefty Guardian leader Polly Toynbee. Farage claims he's been deluged with membership applications from disaffected Tories since the outburst.

A card attached to the thank you tribute—which included a large pair of ornamental cabbages—said: "Dear Dave, Your recruitment efforts for UKIP have been truly exceptional. People are now flocking to join us. Please accept this token of our profound appreciation."

Hee hee!

That's excellent. Watching Spam today on Al-BBC I was totally bemused. Is he really that stupid? Relative poverty? Absolute poverty? How about a dose of Norman Tebbit get on your bike and get a job.

Toynbee in place of Churchill. So Daily Pundit can go: 'Yo Polly!'

Maybe UKIP should send pictures of Polly to all the Conservative Associations to replace their picture of Churchill?

This is very funny. Farage seems to be doing the right things at the moment.
