British politics flits currently between being a joke and utterly terrifying which is why today’s news that UKIP MEP Steven Woolfe was involved in a fight with another UKIP MEP, Mike Hookem (who as I write this is on the run from the police), is just fucking insane.
“Steven Woolfe has then taken his jacket off, walked over and said, ‘Right, you outside now’ or words to that effect,” the source told the Guardian. “They went outside and Steven Woolfe got the brunt of it.”
I mean, what the living fuck??
You’re a party trying to convince people you’re not full of far right thugs, you’re trying to convince people you’re not a bunch of lying, untrustworthy arseholes and then you have this.
I can imagine Farage cheering on the fight, fag in hand, ‘Come on Mike, he’s nearly a leftie, fucking knock him up! Smash his face, SMASH HIS FACE!!!!‘ with all of UKIP’s MEP’s in a circle around the pair like you used to get at school. UKIP fight club basically.
So, in the UK right now we have a Tory government dipping its feet into the water of not just fascism, but full on Nazi ideology, a Labour Party more intent in ignoring Brexit and fighting each other and UKIP smashing seven shades of shite out of themselves. What the hell did we do to deserve this?
