    Oh Godfrey- you were like a great big cartoon. I will miss your appearances on telly, chipping away at UKIP’s credibility.

    Bye bye…

  2. This is bad news for anyone who, like me, wishes UKIP misfortune.

    1. Maybe not. Bloom only started making major appearances after UKIP itself made a complaint and effectively told Nigel Farage to let other party members make media appearances and turn the party into something more than just a one man band with irrelevant extras.
      Now that UKIP’s #2 has been #2’d, they’re back to being the one man band with irrelevant extras.

    Is there anything good about UKIP and their followers. Please Britain don’t give any credibility to this shower of people who drag us back to the bad old days

    Bizarre… Each time this man offends we’re told by Farage that it’s Political Correctness and he wouldn’t do anything.

    Take away headlines from Farage’s keynote speech and suddenly it’s a disgrace.

    Hypocrite but Farage?

    UKip are a farce and I hope most will see it and not be conned into voting for them.

    1. Fun fact: the only people who complain about “political correctness” are crusty old straight white folk who are just really, really upset that they can’t hate on minorities anymore without consequence.

      They look for the “good old days” where they could be as sexist, racist and homophobic as they like…

    The only decent thing this goon has said in his entire political career is that UKIP is no longer for him. Good, now disappear into oblivion unhinged bigoted loon. The Little Britain UKIP is an embarrassment to the country and what we stand for.

    If any of you reading this are considering voting UKIP at all just remember that Godfrey Bloom is far more typical of their members and representatives than Farage would ever admit.

    1. UKIP & BNP are gaining a worrying amount of momentum (going off other forums)

      People are turning to them for the exact same reasons people voted for the Nazis in the 30s: economic turmoil, social unrest and the promise to return their great sovereign state to her former glory…

      Yeah, let’s vote in a right wing nationalist party out of desperation; that always pans out well….

  7. UKIP are a bunch of loons. Their crazy economic policies should tell anyone that. The only policy they have which is good is that stance against the EU but their economic policy wouldn’t allow us to take full advantage of our new independence. I really can’t understand where UKIP think they can exert a positive influence on British politics. They are not a self-declared nationalist party like the BNP or the new British Democratic Party and therefore don’t have a coherent nationalist philosophy. They are an ultra-Thatcherite Tory Party in which case they should shut-up shop and go back to mummy.

    They claim to be libertarians in which case they should be in favour of gay marriage and infact one of its strongest backers yet adopt a stance opposing it for reasons of getting support from generally older, unreconstructed Tories who are against.

    I struggle to see how they think they will gain much political influence. Britain’s anti-EU feelings would be better represented by others.

      Leaving the EU would be disastrous to the UK economy. It that’s what the UKIP and voters want, they haven’t clearly thought about the negative impact it would have. The World Trade Organisation (WTO) would see tariffs imposed on 90% of our EU exports, deadly and detrimental to the economy, business and jobs, killing growth. Half of our economy is based on membership of the EU, the largest trading bloc on the planet.

      1. UKIP’s belligerent rhetoric towards Europe will not only see the same standard tariffs imposed on the UK as are imposed on other non-EU trade, which by itself would be damaging enough, but UKIP’s antagonistic methods could also see tariffs imposed specifically on UK trade to spite our politics. If they come first among UK parties in the EU elections, I can well imagine them putting a withdrawal motion to the EU directly, disregarding the UK’s electorate and the very existence of the UK’s Parliament in which they still have no seats.
        In addition, the current negotiations surrounding USA-EU free trade (largest potential trade deal in human history) would exclude the UK should it withdraw it’s EU membership. And it would require a separate trade treaty with the USA which would not even get off the ground because the UK economy is simply no longer big enough to warrant such priority in the USA’s policy making.

  8. Funny how when the BBC (aka the Bigoted Broadcasting Corporation) reported this they only mentioned him saying the word ‘slut’.

    1. That could just be because the “queer” episode was back in December 2010.

  9. Mr Bloom was later filmed hitting Channel 4 News reporter Michael Crick over the head with a party leaflet after he asked him why there were no non-white faces on a campaign flyer.

    He responded by accusing the journalist of being “racist”.

    LOL oh yes; we poor persecuted white folk are always victim to racism.

    One time this guy called me a “cracker” and I cried myself to sleep for 2 weeks…

    Fat ugly dickhead. Give him an overdose of Botox to get rid of those wrinkles, and him!
