UKIP Uncovered
What motivates the leaders of the United Kingdom Independence Party?

Robert Kilroy-Silk on the BBC's Newsnight

I was unable to view the broadcast and am therefore grateful for this review placed on Eurofaq by Christina Speight editor of EU Facts, Figures and Phantasies:

Newsnight tonight was exposed as incompetent, gullible and ill-informed.

Readers of this may know that I am not taken with Kilroy-Silk though unlike the UKIP leadership he is honest!

When Kirsty Wark interviewed him she did not know that there are no by-elections for MEPs nor how many UKIP MEPs there are. She challenged him on a passage about immigration thinking he had written it when in fact it was a hoax leaflet put out by UKIP cabal ! He wiped the floor with her and pointed out that she had clearly not done her research

The reporters on the spot were not much better. They were obsessed by the spoof literature handed out about the - as yet unformed - new Veritas party and interviews were amateurish. There were about 60 - YES only 60 - at the RKS meeting and 20 at the official UKIP meeting elsewhere including one from North Wales. Lots of arguing about who was what in the local branch.

In short everybody concerned EXCEPT RKS got egg on their faces - especially Newsnight. who were - I repeat - incompetent, gullible and ill-informed.

But we knew that already, didn't we?
