If I’ve offended anybody in bongo bongo land I shall write to the ambassador at the Court of St James’s and apologise to him personally.

I am sure he has lost the plot, and getting ready for his next career as a children’s author, as he cannot believe that his racist fuelled ‘Bongo Bongo land’ comment will not be tolerated. He knew the context of the comment when he said it and is probably only sorry for being caught out – I’m sure the UKIP voters are lapping it up.

The key is how UKIP deal with it; now akin with the BNP, if Farage doesn’t do anything, no one but the BNP will vote for UKIP.
