Ukip could have Ed Miliband and take 9.3m votes instead ...


Not to mention the EdStone!


What's happened to that, by the way?

Who? Well, there is precedent. Isn't Nicola Sturgeon the leader of a party but not an MP?


Labour could also make a bid to sign Nigel Farage, especially if he could bring four million votes with him.

Nicely sums up everyone's view of Farage and UKIP barring the sort of people who read the Express and Daily Star.


I'm sure you're right. The establishment wouldn't dirty their hands by reading those newspapers or taking any notice of the concerns of the people who do.


They probably have the same attitude towards Rugby League.

To change our laws, restrict our freedoms and make criminals out of people simply because of their ethnicity or background means the terrorists win.  Every time you go through an airport and are treated like a criminal by security goons means the bad guys have won; there's no need to treat you like a criminal, they can do the same job more effectively with politeness and courtesy, unfortunately the power has gone to their heads just to appear tough on terrorism.


It would mean that the terrorists "win", if that's what we were doing. But who's doing it? No one, as far as I can see.


There's no doubt that going through airports is now a desperately tedious affair because of the security checks we have to go through.


But are you suggesting we shouldn't have them?


I would love nothing more than to see the security rigmarole removed, but I suspect that the first plane that was blown out of the sky in the aftermath would bring down armageddon on the head of whoever gave the order to slacken the security checks.


Of course the terrorist threat from the IRA was appalling, and on a greater scale than the threat on the street from Islamists.


But as far as I can remember the IRA never threatened to blow planes out of the sky.

Rather a nice slip of the tongue by BBC political correspondent Nornan Smith in his description of Farage.


Nicely sums up the BBC's view of Farage and UKIP.
