OLD MOLE’S ELECTION DIARY
So why did UKIP cancel one of their famous public-but-private-really meetings in Broadstairs yesterday?
Was Farage knackered and couldn’t be bothered to do yet another meeting in Thanet?
Was he shy of getting more grief from the media about crackers right wingers the English Defence League using official UKIP banners as part of their demo against a Muslim cemetry in Solihull in the West Midlands?
Was he running scared of Thanet Watch’s Christine Tongue turning up at the entrance of the Broadstairs Pavilion to protest at the fact that she’d been barred for the magazine’s “nasty” coverage of UKIP?
Or was it simply that not enough folks had applied for tickets to go…?
Do let me know if you know the truth, won’t you?
