On The World This Weekend, Michael Howard specifically distanced himself from Neil Kinnock's criticism of UKIP. Howard never agreed with UKIP about Europe, about Iraq, about flat taxes, about grammar schools, about anything. But every dog knows its own, and none better than an old dog.
Under its new Leader, UKIP now only has one policy: to secure from whoever happens to be the Leader of the Conservative Party, but from no one else, an In/Out referendum on the EU, but nothing else on any issue. As a party rather than as an internal Conservative Party pressure group, UKIP no longer exists.
