I listened, in amazement at Theresa May's speech at the Conservative Party conference this week. And, I am not referring to the point that she was emulating Nigel Farage's view totally!
Theresa May anticipated horrendous publicity, from editors of national and local newspapers, furious with her point of view. CityAM says, in its Editor's 'leader column', "Theresa May's speech was mean, pessimistic and borderline sinister". Huge front page headlines in another newspaper says "Fury as May turns nasty".
If you could be a fly on the wall when Theresa sees these headlines and articles, you would see her grinning ear to ear as she knows millions of people all over England will be searching Google and YouTube to listen to her speech. By the end of this week, probably 80% or more adult English people will have read, or watched her speech. And a lot of others too.
What more could a politician wish for? Especially one making a play for the leader's job.
The only problem is, she doesn't mean a word of it.
If you were buying a bottle of good scotch and the choice was the genuine article, or one which was more costlier and likely to make you ill, which would you choose?
The Genuine Article, of course - so vote UKIP.

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.
