'Mirror' destroyed by own readers over UKIP

The editor of the Sunday Mirror, Lloyd Embley, must now be regretting having published a daft feed from the Labour Party's press office as a news story. Labour researchers had obtained details on the expenses of UKIP MEPs from the European Parliament, and Embley dutifully trotted them out in today's edition to provoke voter anger.

The whole thing has backfired. The comments, and their reader ranking, destroy the Mirror and display massive support for UKIP. Go and enjoy the bile ...

Been there, loved it! May make them think twice in future, but I doubt it.

Looks like UKIP may do better than I thought, despite the assiduous mudslinging.

Been to the Mirror article. It gives me hope that it is not just fed up ex-Tory and ex-LibDems that will support UKIP.

Just for once ... correct
The number of "Old Labour" voters down our allotment-plots who hate the EU is quite considerable, shall we say?
