    Very touching.

    Puts one in mind of Jeremy Thorpe's classic zinger about Harold Macmillan:

    Greater love hath no man than this - that he lay down his friends for his life.

    How touchingly trusting of you.

    I notice that the pressure is slowly, but surely, ramping up over his claim to have been at Hillsborough at all...

    It's another tragic miscarriage of justice: The poor man's account was "hacked" and

    words in that tweet were altered
    It's a shame those fiendish hackers couldn't manage the correct spelling for "there".

    Well maybe despite all of their faults as jumped upon,people feel they will be more represented by UKIP than the current shower residing in Parliament.

    Look I don't know the bloke , I don't know if he is a wrong un or not but what I do know is he as acted properly over the misrepresentation on his blog .If he is found to be a liar in the future I will be the first one to call him out but in this instance he is in the clear and this time the mud didn't stick .
