The Monty Python revival shows due this summer might benefit from the efforts of the Conservative party and the Times Newspaper to destroy Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP over his expenses as an MEP.
The 2014 European elections are also imminent amid wide expectation UKIP will do well. They might. However, I’d argue the true test of UKIP’s popularity will be seeing if they can noticeably boost the national turnout at the notoriously badly attended polls.
If they do, that really will scare the established parties ahead of next year’s general election.
