Hookem, Hook, Hokum?

It seems that The Express still has a forensic interest in the prostrate body of UKIP's Mr Woolfe. It has become something of an iconic image.

Having no idea who Mr Hookem was, I had assumed that the figure standing over the political corpse was just a security guard who had arrived late on the ramp and found the body. I am now wondering if the figure leaning over Woolfe is in fact Mr Hookem. Anybody UKIP savy put me right on this point?

It's not Hookem. Woolfe did not collapse until a few minutes after the punch up.

So that's a no to both questions then?

While the right/left media can keep showing us this image and the striking symbol it embodies: UKIP on the floor, down and out, counted out..... Which I get. I wouldn't like to say who is winning the battle for the hearts and minds of the 10 million or so UKIP voters.A problem of an altogether different magnitude for the policy wonks.

Sorry, 10 million estimated potential supporters etc, 3,881,129 actual voters in 2015

MW, the Tories are polling a lot higher since the referendum, ukippers are polling a lot lower. Make your own guess.

Mike W said...

MW agreed,

My interest was also in Labour's medium term prospects of picking up lost UKIPers in former swing seats like: Dartford, Gravesend, Rochster, Chatham, Hastings, Margate etc, with their offer so far.

Not very keen to look at this months polling data :)
