Gawain Fowler, Ukip's head of press, offers a diplomatic response to the batshit crazy personal statement from Gisela Allen, a prospective council candidate for a ward in Glasgow. Highlights included abolishing bus passes for pensioners and golf courses, declaring that World War III is imminent and that it's vitally important that "children work with horses and ride horses", and proposing the reintroduction of the guillotine.
