You think Daniel “scrap the NHS” Hannan is unhinged? It has emerged that David Cameron may be more or less obligated to entertain a divisive foreign figure aligned with the nutjob right of his own party. That’s right, Sarah Palin is lining up a trip to the UK! Her Facebook note entitiled “Concerning a possible trip to the United Kingdom” reads:
Following an article in a British publication on Sunday [Daily Mail article here], I’ve received questions about a possible trip to the United Kingdom. I have received an invitation for a visit to London, and part of that invitation included the offer of arranging a meeting between myself and one of my political heroines, the “Iron Lady,” Margaret Thatcher. I would love to meet her and hope I’ll be able to arrange the trip in the future.
Guido reports that Palin may attend Conservative Party conference in the autumn, with Nick Clegg’s rumoured appearance scrapped to make way for the former Alaskan governor. The possibility of Palin touring the Freedom Zone fringe with Messrs Hannan and Carswell trailing in her wake raises the prospect of a Tory Gaffe-O-Rama on par with Boris Johnson’s freelancing at conference last year.
This can’t fail to entertain.
