Or to be more specific, a dozen punters plus the barman at your club.
wilfully outraged, hand wringing lefties
You don't appear to have heard that the UKIP leadership has told Godfrey Bloom not to use the term 'bongo bongo land' because it is unacceptable ?
How did you manage to miss that bit of news ?!!
And the reason why UKIP aren't backing Godfrey Bloom is pretty obvious. Nigel Farage has recently been attempting, with some success imo, to portray UKIP as more moderate and respectable bigots.
A couple of weeks ago he chastised the Tories for mounting a “nasty Big Brother” billboard campaign against illegal immigrants :
Ukip's Nigel Farage attacks ‘nasty, Big Brother’ billboards on illegal immigration
Then last week Farage criticised the Tories for spot checks on suspected illegal immigrants :
Nigel Farage attacks Home Office immigrant spot checks as 'un-British'
It was all going so well the Tories were appearing as nasty populists who were raking the gutter for votes, whilst UKIP on the other hand were given the opportunity to appear fair-minded and moderate.
Then along comes Godfrey Bloom and fecks everything up with talk of bongo bongo land.
This completely undoes the image that Farage had been carefully trying to craft over the last couple of weeks, and which the Tories had handed him on a plate.
Oh how the Tory leadership must have smirked with glee at UKIP's own goal. After so long on the back foot the Tories could once again point at UKIP and imply that, in the words of David Cameron, they were "fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists".
Do you really think that UKIP are grateful to Godfrey Bloom ?
Do you really think that it's "the left" that's been hurt by this ?
