It is nothing of the kind, writes Dalrymple. Neither the Front national nor Ukip

will achieve more than a slight, mildly unpleasant change in the rhetoric (not the policy) of the others. Europe will continue on its corporatist path, on its decline relative to other regions, while its political caste brands any who oppose it as xenophobes and fascists.

How Ukip appeals to those who seek a scapegoat for our discontents

The scapegoat is: foreigners.

When they are not coming to take our jobs, they are coming to take our unemployment benefits, ruining the country with their foreign ways in the process.

Dalrymple writes that Nigel Farage, the party’s leader,

is too intelligent not to see the reasons for the paradox of state-subsidised mass unemployment of the indigenous population concurrent with mass immigration of people to do unskilled labour: both lack of economic incentives for the local unemployed to work, and the superiority of the foreigners for the jobs anyway.

Though Britain spends nine times as much per head in real terms on education as it spent in 1950,

at least a fifth of our population is so badly educated that it cannot answer the telephone properly — a disadvantage in an increasingly service economy. But the degeneration of the electorate is not a vote-winner: better to concentrate, or appear to concentrate, on the wicked foreigner.
