Nigel Farage reads blogs...

... or his press statement writers do. Here's the link to the UKIP leader's statement on Labour's attempts to prop up its ailing finances with our fucking cash.
"No surprise really, although the cheek of it, the effrontery, is breathtaking. Essentially, Blears is stating that the Labour Party has made a mess, spent too much money ineffectively, and it should be the taxpayer who coughs up", said Mr Farage. He continued: "Well, I suppose they've done that with the health system, the education system, every other part of the governance of the country, so why not?

That sounds very familiar.
"It is very simple. If people don't value a party enough to voluntarily pay for it then tough, it has failed in the marketplace of ideas".

That bit rings a bell too.

One assumes that permission was asked and granted...?

UPDATE: the answers to the above question are "yes" and "yes". I had reason to believe that this would be the case, actually, but one tries to maintain one's impartiality to some extent.

Blears comes across as a right prat. Regarding your Swearathon, does this qualify? Yes, well that's what I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage. You sit there on your loathsome, spotty behinds, squeezing blackheads etc. etc. ....?

DK, is this some kind of joke - my word verification states and I'm not lying - g-e-f-o-k-t.

That's a good spot.

So you now accept the emptiness of UKIP's rhetoric, their intellectual bankruptcy, and are ready to renounce all their works?...

What Mr Eugenides said - all of it.
