Outside Westminster very few functionaries acquire genuine fame, and it might be hard for the public to understand the excitement created by the announcement that Paul “Gobby” Lambert is joining UKIP. Gobby is a well liked figure in the Westminster figure, but it is not because he is a polite, quiet wall flower.

As his nickname might suggest, Gobby is the voice that can often be heard on the news shouting outside Downing Street questions like “are you going to resign Prime Minister”. Before the Autumn Statement he shouted to George Osborne “have you solved the deficit?” As if to add to the whole image it's all done in a working class southern accent.
