OLD MOLE’S ELECTION DIARY
Wonderful revelations from a young man who managed to find his way into UKIP’s conference at the Winter Gardens the other week. Although the conference was supposed to be all about Manston Airport, very little was said about the airport. Which must have ticked off Manston Airport campaigners something rotten.
But the really great thing the young man did was to actually ask a question – one which dumbfounded Mr Farage and his friends. He said he was a teacher of people who come from abroad to Thanet to learn English. How would Mr Farage’s policies affect his job? Mr Farage blustered and blurred, but came up with no serious answer.
Could it be that Mr Farage actually knows that UKIP’s policies would be a disaster for the EFL schools on which the Thanet economy is critically dependent?
