THE economic recovery is finally paying dividends for Britain’s craziest political nutjobs.
As predicted, the return to growth and the fall in unemployment have boosted a rag-bag collection of foaming, googly-eyed weirdos who could not be trusted to plug in a lamp.
According to experts, UKIP beating the Tories into second place in a by-election is ‘textbook stuff’.
Julian Cook, professor of politics at Roehampton University, said: “The party that should never, ever, ever be in power is always the first to benefit from economic good news.
“UKIP really struggled during the recession because that’s when people are least likely to grab at simplistic solutions dreamt up by monstrous cretins.
“They really come into their own as soon as things pick up because people need to be reassured by their incoherent message and jaw-dropping insanity.”
He added: “If real incomes start rising again UKIP could even win a by-election, especially if their candidate has a PhD in climatology and anal sex.”
