Nigel Farage urges Ukip to take positive stance in immigration debate 28.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Leader tells party conference in Margate that an ‘amicable divorce’ from the EU and skills-based immigration system are needed Nigel Farage urged Ukip to start striking a positive tone about the immigration debate in his spring conference speech on Friday, just hours after some of his party spokesmen linked people coming to Britain to strains on food supply, water and even the sewage system. The Ukip leader did not have any new policy to unveil for the two-day event in Margate, Kent, as the party failed to get its manifesto ready in time. Instead, Farage used his speech to an audience of candidates and activists to make a plea for a hopeful message and against negative campaigning. “Everything about our campaign is going to be positive because we believe in Britain,” he ...

Experience: everything smells like sewage to me 27.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
‘There are few things that I can eat that don’t taste of sewage or mud, and most things smell disgusting, too’ The cold was unremarkable, although bad enough for me to need a few days in bed. It was spring last year, and a week after going back to work I went to a perfume event. That was when the first alarm bells rang. My alter ego is Get Lippie , a fragrance writer and beauty blogger, so it’s my job to smell perfume. But that day I couldn’t smell anything. My GP told me I was anosmic – that I’d lost my sense of smell, and taste alongside it, probably due to damage to the olfactory nerve during my cold. He couldn’t say how long it would last. I was devastated, but I’d give anything to still be anosmic now. After about three months, the anosmia became intermittent phases of phantosmia (smelling unpleasant smells where no smells actually exist), along with constant parosmia (when real smells and tastes are distorted into unpleasant ones), and occasional cacosmia (when everything smells, and tastes, ...
