There’s a reason this blog just linked to the Jolyon Rubinstein interview. Part of the Idiot’s Guide to Politics focused on UKIP and it seemed appropriate to put Nigel Farage’s party under the spotlight on the day of his big speech. Here’s the Beast:
I found this little video from Jolyon Rubinstein’s The Idiot’s Guide to Politics on BBC 3 through the We’re Still Laughing at UKIP page on Facebook. Rubinstein is, as I’ve blogged already, on a personal campaign to clean up politics. He has a petition circulating on the internet to make lying to parliament illegal, and is very concerned about the lack of interest the parties have in appealing to the young.
In this clip, Rubinstein takes at face value Farage’s comments about being fed up with the liars in his party. He therefore descends on UKIP head office with a lie detector, offering to administer the test to them. The questions he states that he intends to ask are ‘have you ever given a Nazi salute?’ and ‘Have you ever been to Bongo-Bongo-Land?’
Here’s the link to the clip: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02jpwvl
