No Boxes Here, Please

UKIP have finally put up a link from their main page to their referendum petition.

Theirs has 2,610 signatures. They do not link to a perfectly good petition which had already started, and collected over ten thousand signatures, when UKIP launched theirs. Spoilers.

Amusingly, UKIP MEPs and regional sites seem to link to the Perfectly Good Petition, not to the UKIP one.

DK's search for a Top Twenty of UKIP bloggers has so far collected...

Mark Wadsworth
Purple Scorpion
Little Man (describes self as rabid pro-European but, it's a blog)
Dirty Dingus
John Trenchard
BBC Biased

and of course DK himself and EU Referendum.

And me. Twenty-first, I modestly suspect, on a largely empty list.

As the Clash put it in White Man in the Hammersmith Palais (1978)
Punk rockers in the UK
They won't notice anyway
They're all too busy fighting
For a good place under the lighting
All over people changing their votes
Along with their overcoats
If Adolf Hitler flew in today
They'd send a limousine anyway

I'm the all night drug-prowling wolf
Who looks so sick in the sun
I'm the white man in the Palais
Just lookin' for fun
