How ironic (as Owl is sure many people will point out) that
the UKIP MEP who allegedly got into an altercation with another UKIP MEP (Stephen Woolfe tipped as yet another potential leader) is called Mike Hookem!
But also how shocking that these people – who have got what they want and despise the EU – should still be around the European Parliament, sponging off it.
On his website, Hookem says that he joined the party because he was committed to showing his constituents “what a corrupt and dictatorial system the European Union is and how many of the decisions taken by faceless, unelected bureaucrats, directly affect them”. As far as we know he has not complained about being paid by them.
Our UKIP MEP is William, Earl of Dartmouth, hardly short of a bob or two.
There are TWENTY TWO of them costing us millions of pounds a year which could better go to our NHS! AND their salaries have gone up 15% as they are paid in EUROS!
(Nominative determinism is the theory that a person’s name has some influence over what they do with their life).
