Ukip election broadcast warns of alien invasion of Bradford

Alien holograms from the EU are coming to get your money, apparently.

Ukip supporters in Bradford have produced a party political broadcast they call a “spoof sci-fi EU election video with a serious message”.

Written and directed by Ukip Bradford and District chairman Jason Smith, the ten-minute film features, among other delights, an EU-branded UFO flying over the city and sucking up hardworking people's money.

This mole has never seen such raw cinematic talent. There's the bit when the evil EU UFO casts its evil shadow over local landmarks:

Then it starts hoovering up money from underneath hardworking British paving stones:

Later on, the UFO gets backup:

And zaps down this hologram of an EU bureaucrat to take even more of your money:

It's definitely worth watching in full.

Thanks to the Vote UK forum and Political Scrapbook for the spot

I'm a mole, innit.

The NS Podcast #150: Englishness, X-men and Equality

The New Statesman podcast.

This week, Helen and Stephen try their best not to talk about the EU. Instead they turn to Boris Johnson’s media strategy, MP’s expenses, and Labour and the idea of Englishness. They go down-the-line to the Lobby with George Eaton. Then Henry Zeffman joins to discuss the politics of the new X-men movie. You also ask us: what does the future hold for the Women’s Equality Party? (Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, George Eaton, Henry Zeffman)
