With the local election campaigns starting to get underway, David Cameron picks a fight with UKIP, calling them loonies and closet racists!
Aside from the fact that it is potentially libellous (and Cameron has been given to making ill-judged outbursts lacking substance, lately), UKIP is a relatively new party made up of those from the hard right and some dissaffected Conservatives.*
Put simply, I'm not fussed with who Cameron has a scrap with, but my free advice is that he should be a bit sure of his ground before starting a fight.
*I would like to point out for legal reasons that, whilst there are some loony Tory grassroots who live in a bygone age and are as nasty as sin and seem to have some horrible effect on the Party, some grassroots Tories are nice people, if somewhat politically misguided and naive! ;)
