Much has been made of Farage’s ‘expenses’, although you might have thought that those who call themselves journalists would know the difference between expenses and allowances. Either they don’t know the difference or they choose to pretend that there is no difference, in order to score political points against UKIP and Farage in particular. Whichever way you cut it, they are not practicing journalism. The clue is in the name.
This wretched piece particularly got my bile up – not because it was the usual smear that we’ve come to expect from the corporate media. but because the author hadn’t even bothered to get the said councillor’s side of the story. It is simply a smear, based on a blog, based on hearsay and opinion and linguistic contortions. The worst kind of ‘journalism’ there is.
Well, UKIP has dug up a shed-load of dirt on LibLabCon MEP junketeers – and it makes for rather sickening reading. LibLabCon MEPs are whooping it up at our expense while they pile taxes and regulations upon us. LibLabCon MPs and councillors are no doubt doing exactly the same and I hope UKIP will dredge the dirt on them, in due course. We already know about a plethora of their crimes, but these represent the tip of the iceberg, I’m sure.
