Whoops they got it wrong again. Blundering Times journalists fail to smear UKIP


The last effort by the Times to get UKIP into trouble with the European parliamentary authorities has just collapsed ignominiously.

Early last month the Lib Dem MEP Edward McMillan-Scott put in a complaint about UKIP’s use of allowances after a series of reports by Times journalists Rachel Sylvester and Alice Thomson.

But yesterday the inquiry was thrown out by a European Parliament bureau meeting that found there was no matter requiring further investigation following Mr McMillan-Scott’s complaint.

A UKIP spokesman said: “You would struggle to believe that they once called the Times the Thunderer. These days it is much more often the Blunderer.”
