The UKIP incident of Mr Bloom throwing a copy of the TV  Times at the wolves got me interested, I watched the Parliament channel for more than two hours, saw Mr Blooms speech and what do you know it was a good speech, a lot of sensible planning for their term in office (they are bound to get some seats), then two other well educated gentlemen giving speeches at least as good as any Conservative ones, particularly about Higher Education, then a down to earth talk by their outgoing President;  that settled it for me!

I will give them a chance for my vote at the ballot box, there really is more substance in that Party than just Lafarge (spelling).  Had Tea yesterday afternoon with an elderly couple at Christchurch, the old man almost at once asked me………..John, what do you think about UKIP?
