What’s the time, Mr Woolfe?

Steven Woolfe’s Ukip leadership campaign is off to a good start. First he didn’t manage to submit it on time so it’s not clear whether he’s allowed to continue as a candidate, and now it turns out he “accidentally forgot” that he had a criminal conviction which is also a criminal offence given that he was standing for election at the time. And you’d think he’d know that, given that he’s a barrister.

This isn’t to say he’s out of the race yet. Theresa May’s inability to read a calendar didn’t prevent her from becoming PM, so Woolfe’s chronometric impairment might not be disastrous. And this is Ukip, after all, where vague competence seems to be a hindrance within the party (just ask Douglas Carswell and Suzanne Evans).
