Ukip Calypso: Read M And Weep (Geddit?)

In common with all media commentators, Fagburn has nothing interesting to add to the current hoo-ha about Mike Read's in-no-way racist song, UKIP Calypso.

Though, I did once interview Mr Read on the eve of his musical about Oscar Wilde - which was so famously good it was cancelled after the first night.

Mike struck me as one of the thickest people I've ever had the misfortune to interview - and I've interviewed Steps and Brett from Suede.

Mike launched into a spirited celebration of celebrity nonces, citing Oscar Wilde in their defence.

Mike tried to explain - very badly - that he couldn't have had Relax banned from BBC Radio 1, even if he'd wanted to.

Anyway, Fagburn thinks Ukip should send out free downloads of Ukip Calypso - U2-style - to every household in this sceptered isle, instead of publishing a manifesto for the next general election.

But please don't thank me if you win.
