I only saw part of Robert Kilroy Silk's announcement of his resignation from UKIP. He's normally treated as a comic irrelevance barely one step up from Jerry Springer. (The Independent, for instance, buried today's story on page 14.) But if I were a mainstream politician, I'd be worried. He was very impressive yesterday: the gestures, the phrasing were almost hypnotic. I can see him bypassing the media establishment and building quite a constituency. For good or ill? I don't know yet.
