The astonishing spectacle of the UKIP party "leader" campaigning for the Tory party is not the only farcical aspect of the current general election.
The bizarre and unwanted policy of not standing against "eurosceptics" has been totally discredited in the West Midlands, where the party is alleged to be paying Nikki Sinclaire's former office junior, John Ison, to undermine her campaign.
John Ison is pictured above. He is the one dressed as a chicken.
As Sinclaire attracts front page headlines on a weekly basis, and is running second in the polls, UKIP's filthy dirty tricks dept is working overtime to discredit her. Their candidate, however, is making an ass of himself and his party. At a hustings a few nights ago, he was actually forced by the Chair to withdraw a scurrilous and slanderous statement about Sinclaire, drawing hisses and shouts of "shame" from the audience. During the course of the hustings, Ison described himself as a "businessman", and a "swimming instructor". At a previous hustings, he was an "airline pilot".
He sounds as confused as David Bannerman!
Ison is clearly a troubled man. A former activist with "Fathers 4 Justice", he is believed to have been reported to the CSA for misleading them about his earnings, presumably in an attempt to avoid maintenance payments.
Farage is clearly crashing the party, and was clever enough to put his useful idiot Pearson in driver's seat first. Sober and untroubled people will notice, of course, that the eurosceptics UKIP are not standing against are..... Farage's mates!
