Says the man who brought us Secret Courts...

Ken Clark is an evil man, oh he may not think he is evil, but his past deeds definitely makes him someone to whom the word evil could justly be applied.
It was Clark who brought about the secret courts scheme  where the ancient writ of habeas corpus was to be undermined by the justice and security bill.
It was Clarke who played his part in transferring power from our elected representatives to the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.
It was Clarke told the Parliamentary authorities that his main home was in his Rushcliffe constituency, enabling him to claim a second homes allowance on his London home and leaving the taxpayer to foot the bill for the council tax due on that property. However, he told Rushcliffe Borough Council in Nottinghamshire that he spent so little time at his constituency address that his wife Gillian should qualify for a 25% council-tax (single person's) discount, saving the former chancellor around £650 per year.
There are other accusations of a far darker nature out there too, google them to find out.
Voters who back the UK Independence Party are racists and its politicians are clowns, Ken Clarke claimed yesterday.
The veteran Tory Cabinet minister led attacks by all three main parties as he said UKIP is merely a protest party and those attracted to it are ‘waifs and strays’ who are simply ‘against’ foreigners and immigrants.Mr Clarke’s astonishing onslaught came as polls showed that Nigel Farage’s Eurosceptic party has overtaken the Liberal Democrats and is set for its best local election results ever on Thursday, when 35 county councils and unitary authorities in England and one in Wales go to the polls.
Says the man who once invited Oswald Mosely to speak to Jewish students, causing his then boss to resign in protest.
It's been interesting the sheer negative campaigning from all the big three parties in respect of one small party who chances are will not win the general election, nor probably control of any local council. Actually, recent polling shows Ukip ahead of the Lib Dems, so perhaps big three isn't quite the right term any more.
What is interesting though is that Ukip aren't just picking up votes from disaffected Tories, but also from Labour and Lib Dem ones too. Not that the parties concerned own those votes, though to hear them scream you'd almost think they did.
No matter, Ukip are on a bit of a roll and the steps necessary to squish them have been rolled out though amusingly to no avail. People know when politicians are lying, they can see their lips moving and the political dwarves of the UK have made a career of ignoring the people and lying to their faces so why they think we'll believe them now about Ukip is anyone's guess.
I'll be watching the election results with interest, they don't affect me, the next time I get to vote will be the European elections where I suspect Ukip might just rout certain parties and really set the cat amongst the pigeons.
Still, whatever Clarke says, I'll take with a pinch of salt, as I wrote, the man is evil and has a track record to prove it.

Way to go Ken - continue insulting previous Tory voters like this and more will go over to UKIP (hopefully)!

I always suspected that David Cameron was just Tony Blair Mk2,all spin and no substance,but when he made Clarke a cabinet minister I knew for sure,a treacherous pompous EU quisling who`s success record as a minister was atrocious.
If Cameron wants the Tories to stay in office he could start by getting shot of all the EU collaborators and get some ministers in who actually put this country and its native people first.

The fact that Clarke has had to resort to the 'snarl' word 'racist' in order to try to shut down debate shows that the challenge to the Conservatives-in-name-only by UKIP is worrying them.

Someone should tell Clarke that calling people 'racist' when they challenge the status quo really isn't working anymore.

Clarke has shown his weakness and Cameron really needs to put him out to grass.
