Some delegates to Ukip's annual conference say they will wear a full-face veil to conceal their embarrassment at being a Ukip member.
'I'm not really keen on anyone discovering I'm a member,' said one man who wished to remain anonymous. 'Nigel wasn't very happy about it, but I think he'd make a bigger impression if he were to wear a veil.'
It's believed that this year the conference will embrace a Bulgarian and Romanian theme to counter accusations of racism in the party.
'During the conference Nigel will lead the delegates in Bulgarian and Romanian folk dance - probably after he's had a few pints,' said one heavily veiled delegate.
