As is so often the case, thanks to Iain Dale for highlighting this story. In a council by-election in Dartford the UK Independence Party candidate (yes I know, what has the issue of leaving the EU got to do with town halls?) has asked the British National Party candidate to nominate him.
Given UKIP's record, from no less than their founder's words, as well as notable comments by their most likely next leader (and candidate in the recent Bromley and Chislehurst by-election) this doesn't come as much of a surprise. And this is a party that took in Kilroy after all! (Although I'm sure even they now regret that.) But still UKIP continue to present themselves as something very different from their true face.
