UKIP candidate Emily Santos prays for her life and soul while other members discuss her "words" as if she did not exist.

UKIP candidate Emily Santos prays for her life and soul while other members discuss her “words” as if she did not exist.

This blog will quote only one small part of Tom Pride’s report on UKIP’s train-crash Scottish campaign launch, in the hope that you’ll visit his blog to read the rest.

It concerns a TV interview with candidate Emily Santos – who will take on Alex Salmond in the high-profile Gordon constituency:

“When the tongue-tied candidate was completely unable to answer any questions, the panicking UKIP spin doctor accompanying her was heard to give the excellent advice: ‘Words – use your words.’

“‘I don’t know,’ was Santos’ brilliant reply.”

Every day is a disaster with UKIP.
