The triumphant pigeons of bigotry.

ELECTION RESULTS PROVIDE great entertainment for cynics and winners alike. In last week’s parliamentary by-elections, for instance, Banksy’s grey pigeons of bigotry elected Britain’s first Ukip MP (as predicted); but in another seat, Heywood and Middleton, Ukip very nearly unseated the squatting Labour candidate, losing by a mere 600 votes. That was not expected by anyone.
