Well, I almost did it. I actually started filling in the online membership form, happy to pay £30, happy to declare I've only ever previously been a member of the Conservative Party and not the BNP, NF and their offshoots, but then I couldn't do it. That bloody Mr Byrite pound sign. It's just so naff.
Please, UKIP, get a decent graphic artist working on your logo and I promise if you lose the £ sign I'll join.
