UKIP impact ‘diluted’
What a shame that the UKIP Conference, and leader Nigel Farage’s opening speech, were so diluted by the irresponsible action and words of their Yorkshire and Humber MEP Godfrey Bloom.
This silly man opened his mouth and flailed his arms about, before engaging his brain.
So many people are now hoping that at long last, via UKIP, this sad nation of ours might get its greatness back.
What Bloom did and said, in themselves, were not that bad, but the damage to the credibility of the whole party was immense.
In these grim days of “political correctness”, all politicians should know that their critics and foes are longing for gaffes like Godfrey’s.
Hopefully time will be a great healer, and Farage and Co. can lead us to a better future.
