Channel 5 documentary about UKIP supporters on 4 March 2015

I regret to inform those who were looking forward to seeing me in the documentary that I will not be in it. I have been informed by the Assistant Producer:

"I just wanted to inform you that unfortunately the footage we shot with you will not be featured in this week's show Farage Fans and UKIP Lovers. The filming we did with yourself was great, this decision is purely due to the amount of footage we have and trying to fit everything in to one show."

Yes, there was quite a lot of footage consisting of two days of filming one day from 9:30 to 12:30 and the other from 2 to 5 pm.  

I suspect the photos they will use will be this one at or one of the others at

Farage Fans & UKIP Lovers


Documentary exploring the wide spectrum of people who are supporters of the political party, examining what draws them to it and what they hope it will achieve. Father and son fishermen Terry and Luke Noakes believe EU directives and quotas are killing Britain's fishing industry, while self-confessed right-wing anarchist and part-time IT tutor David Griffiths thinks the UK has some of the craziest regulations in the world.

You know it's just going to be a hatchet job.

Claire Khaw said...

I have already done it. It is probably going to be a hatchet job if they asked me if they could use the flag and gun photos!

A professional politician cannot insist on only flattering portrayals, however! I just hope that some of my warmth, wit, humanity and likeability managed to shine through ....

JL said...

I'm sure it will. I didn't realise you were a "professional politician"? I thought you were a lone Nietzschean voice in the wilderness. Are you in UKIP then? I'll be voting UKIP, although I consider them patriotic liberals, there's nothing else viable on the horizon at present.

Claire Khaw said...

I just have aspirations of being able to seem a professional politician even if I am not one.

JL said...

Ah, got it. I think I've given up on politics. I didn't get anywhere and am considered to be a little too hardline for most tastes.

Claire Khaw said...

If one cannot persuade one can at least entertain. I think I am known for also being hardline.

JL said...

You little liar, you're just a softee I've heard, lol. Where's that quote from? (If one cannot persuade ...)

Claire Khaw said...

That quote came from ... me!

Should make for interesting viewing. You working flat out to sink the ship are you, Claire?

Claire Khaw said...

I just hope I don't come across too wild-eyed and demented if I am still in the show. I am sure I remembered to wipe the foam off my lips from time to time ...

I don't think it will harm UKIP at all even if I come across half mad. UKIP is the choice of voters the LibLabCon have already labelled mad sad and bad.

If you were planning to vote UKIP you would not be put off by little old me.

UKIP = the stick you use to beat the LibLabCon with cos you are SICK AND TIRED of PC Liberal crap.

They asked me if they could use the gun and flag photos and I said yes, knowing they could use them even if I said NO. They did give me a chance to explain why I did it though.

We even went to Whitechapel. While we were in the Altab Ali park a black man I had never met before patted me on the shoulder and said "How you doing?" which I thought was pretty cool. Unfortunately, the camera was not on.

Another black man asked us wearily if we were doing yet another documentary about immigration, which made us smile ...

Anyway, it should still be an interesting documentary even if I am not in it.
