'Rain, Moderate Or Gay': Listen To The All-New Ukip Shipping Forecast

"Viking. North Utsire. South Utsire. South-easterly women breastfeeding. Occasionally in public."
Yes, it can only be the sequel to the original Ukip Shipping Forecast - and it's just as glorious as the last one.
It's the work of Nicholas Pegg, and take it from us: it makes for marvellous listening for any devoted Radio 4 listener and/or Ukip-hater...

The Shipping Forecast has never really been the same since Jimmy Kingsbury left. His voice 'Attention all Shipping' was known throughout the country. And it was not just mariners who listened to it, people tuned in to hear it even when it didn't affect them.

His voice was really very similar to that of Frank Philips who announced in 1943 on the BBC about the Dambusters bombing of the dams in Germany. Frank re-recorded the announcement for the film as well.

Here's Jimmy reading the shipping forecast. Bit of background noise but still good.

The UK’s Victoria Ayling gaffed yesterday she asked, “what happens when renewable energy runs out?” You may know Ukip, they’re (one of) the UK’s answers to One Nation, only their members seem a whole lot more credible and vocal (when compared to say—Pauline Hanson) thanks to the UK’s and Europe’s genuine economic woes. What Ayling claims to have meant was renewable energy subsidies. Unfortunately for her, it kinda went viral anyway with more than 2,000 retweets of a Guardian writer’s tweet. Ayling is famous for having said, “send the lot back” in a party video on immigration. Naturally, she claims it was taken out of context.
