As scientists announced that 2016 is likely to be the warmest on record, UKIP’s environment spokesperson has said that can’t be true as they had to wear socks in bed last night.
Data from Nasa and the UK Met Office shows temperatures were about 0.07 degrees Celsius above the 2015 mark, the previous hottest year.
However, climate sceptics inside UKIP have questioned the findings, insisting you only have to look out of the window to see it’s not getting warmer.
Spokesperson Simon Williams told us, “If the planet is warming, then why is hot water bottle usage up 25% in my house this month? Eh, answer me that.
“You’ve all made the classic mistake of listening to experts, haven’t you? What have we been telling you all this time – don’t listen to bloody experts!
“What you need to do is use your own eyes and ask yourself, does it look warmer outside, or does it look like it would freeze a witch’s tit.
“I bet you’ll question whether the ‘experts’ are right next time your fingers are going blue from scraping frost off the car windows.”
