Earlier this week there was an interview with Roger Knapman, UKIP leader, on the Today programme, in which he went off at a disparaging, verging on racist, tangent about Bulgarians and Romanians. I started frothing at the mouth, as neither of these countries are presently in the EU, and therefore have no place in the debate about UK membership. What irritated me most was that the interviewer did not pick him up on this point. However, kharin has pointed out another appealing interpretation: maybe Knapman doesn't actually know which countries are in the EU.

Also I must take the opportunity to note a splendid corner-piece in today's Independent on Robert Kilroy-Silk, in which his career is described as a reductio ad absurdum of narcissism.

"I started frothing at the mouth"

Why not cheer yourself up and have a look at the hits obtained on google by searching for swivel eyed loons?
