    If true Hookem should be expelled from the party and put on trial. Don't know why the leftists are acting smug, their party is full of antisemites who by the looks of things need a shower and a haircut.

    It seems a bit soon to be talking about murder when we don't even know if he's dead yet

    More appropriate would be 'UKIP MEPs may have injured prospective future leader'

    He's reportedly regained consciousness. Hopefully he will recover.
    He had 2 seizures which means he will be banned from driving and lose his licence for 12-36 months of which he has to be seizure free. He will probably have to retake his driving test. The DVLA is very strict on things like that.

    So I very much doubt he could become a leader, quite possibly be signed off onto incapacity.

    According to several reports, Woolfe started the fight and lost it.

    If this is true Woolfe is a clown.

    But perhaps it is not.

    I would punch someone for racially abusing me.

    They seem to be engaged in a partisan internal power struggle, with the Woolfe critics claiming it was all his fault - no doubt we will hear from his supporters in due course that it was all Hookam's fault.

    Exactly what they are fighting about is unclear, what are these 'policy differences'? Perhaps they are each trying to be the most racist? Hookam wanted to only exterminate individual immigrants selectively, whereas Woolfe is in favour of mass extermination?

    A comparison of a UKIP meeting to the Wannsee Conference?

    It's more like the Night of the Long Knives. We are at the stage where the mainstream hardcore haters are kicking out the casual but brutish amateurs.

    Oh come on. don't be ridiculous.

    UKIP is undoubtedly a bad and unfunny joke as a serious political party but the idea that Wolfe is some kind of Himmler and Hookem (?) Heydrich is absurd.

    You need to lose the hyperbole. Post Brexit referendum Britain does NOT resemble Weimar Germany. It really doesn't.

    If I were a leftie like you I would worry about Labour, not UKIP. The latter is history (although it has transformed Britain) the former is your only hope of doing the same.

    If you guys can make it electable again by articulating the aspirations of a majority of the nation.

    No?

    I am thoroughly enjoying UKIP exposing themselves in the way they are - the thuggish swivel-eyed loons have gone native. It's also good because it will convince those alienated voters who went to UKIP because Flashman and Milliband were so distasteful to return to the Tory fold.

    They are such an incredible joke. All the more amazing that they were able to distort Britain so much that we ended up with a government supinely acting out their agenda and leading us into the inevitable economic decline that will be our fate as a middle ranking power no longer part of one of the main global trading blocs.

    Part of the comedy was seeing Farage immediately pop up to announce that after all, he is still the leader. That must be about the fifth time that's happened.
    Even The Thick of It never had a storyline this bizarre.

    Your bolded comment is the whole point. You are absolutely right, and there is little need for UKIP now because its ideas have won the ideological war, and are now the commonplace currency of our government during this crucial period. Perhaps the most important government in a generation. What happens now will shape this country for the rest of the century. And UKIP's ideas are everywhere triumphant. Even the reintroduction of Grammar Schools is a UKIP policy.

    That what (as this episode demonstrates) is clearly little more than a rabble could achieve all this is "amazing", as you say. I understand that you disagree with the agenda and deplore it, but all the same your comment implicitly accepts the scale of this party's achievement in political terms. It is utterly extraordinary, I think you have to go back to the Liberal Unionists more than a century ago to think of a similar example of a small party wagging a governing party's tail like this. Interesting that Joe Chamberlain is so back in fashion as the ideological mentor of May's key advisor.

    You laugh at Farage returning to tide things over, but this episode also illustrates the extent of his personal political success, surely? UKIP is falling apart without him, under him this ragbag collection of "loons fruitcakes and closet racists" with a penchant for punching each other almost to death, transformed British, and even European politics.

    I doubt that UKIP has changed. It has almost certainly always been like this. With him as leader a lid was kept on a cauldron of chaos and hatred in the name of the greater good. Brexit. He will go down in history as one of a handful of post war politicians so far, who have really made a difference to the country.

    You think in a disastrous way, I think for the good, but whichever side of the Brexit divide you are on, it is hard to deny his personal role in getting the referendum held in the fist place, and that it was his ideas and beliefs which won it, when it was actually held.

    Oh *******s. There is absolutely no correlation between country size and economic success. Nor between military power and economic success when you control for the fact that economically successful countries can afford more military power even if they don't need or use it.

    If your ideas of what makes countries wealthy were correct then the USSR would have won the Cold War.

    The EU is a 1950s attempt to build a Western version of the USSR and it sucks for much the same reasons.
