Missed chance

If I were a conspiracy theorist, I would label the raised voices in the media over the “slut” outburst by Godfrey Bloom MEP at the Ukip conference as the effective work of a political plant (your report, 21 September).

How better could the liberal Left have smokescreened the popular propositions of the Ukip on the critical issues of the European Union, 
immigration, energy, the NHS, agriculture and fisheries, education et al, than behind hypocritical shock at the use of a foolish expletive about a certain kind of woman from an eccentric kind of politician whose comeuppance is now assured?

Godfrey Bloom was a casual godsend to the liberal Left whose conniving coalition, made up of Liberal Democrats, Labour and Conservative, has left this country on the brink of ruin.
