    Those zany knockabout UKIP larrikins

    Oh dear. How sad. What a pity. Never mind.

    MPs Sir Kevin Barron and John Healey were awarded 40,000 each in libel damages at the High Court in London.

    Mr Justice Warby said the "offensive and wrong" allegation had caused "real anger and distress".

      Um.

      It's not the EU that are the villains here -

      Jane Collins (MEP), who represents Yorkshire and [strike]North Lincolnshire[/strike] The Humber, claimed the MPs knew about child exploitation in the town but did not intervene.

      The MPs - Sir Kevin Barron, John Healey and Sarah Champion - sued for libel.

      But the High Court was told Ms Collins has applied to the European Parliament for immunity from prosecution.

          Nah.

          Dially Mile readers, perhaps, but yer average (professional) kipper tends to be a little better briefed and groomed than that

                  And now they've moved onto "Satire"

                  UKIP claim discussing whether they'd rape Jess Philips is satire.

                    They weren't just discussing it: their current leader sent her a tweet in 2016 saying 'I wouldn't even rape you'

                      Some weapons-grade twunt on that Twitter feed suggests that people don't have the right to be offended by the comment because he'd said it was something he 'wouldn't' do.

                      Free speech is one thing, giving oxygen to morons another entirely.

                          That is unbelievably depressing. I mean, I can think the worst of gamergaters (and I did, and do), but the sheer shithousery of that guy - and his supporters whose tweets are quoted - makes me queasy.
