He may just have become leader of UKIP but Lord Pearson hasn’t lost sight of what’s important: mentioning random animals to anyone who’ll listen.

Lord Pearson: If you are a sheep or a lemming you don’t join UKIP… I want UKIP to gum up the present political system completely so the monkeys can’t make any laws which we don’t want… The corrupt octopus isn’t going to turn into a cuddly teddy bear. [Times]

Lord Pearson has a new animal!
Lord Pearson of Rannoch: Is it not time that the lemmings of global warming started to wonder whether they are rushing in the right direction?
(He doesn’t believe in global warming, is his point.)

The best yet from UKIP’s Lord Pearson, who is forever trying to convince the House that the EU is a “corrupt octopus”:

Lord Pearson of Rannoch: … the UK’s rejection of the treaty might cause a genuine debate in Brussels, from which some genuine reform might emerge [but] I fear that this beast in Brussels is not that sort of animal. An octopus does not easily become a dolphin, but it might, just a little bit. [Hansard]
What with his claim last week that, “This particular frog leapt with such speed that I was caught on the wrong leg and was not able to move the amendment in time”, it seems the noble Lord’s entire political outlook is expressed through the medium of animals. Perhaps the room where he writes his speeches is covered in animal wallpaper.

Lord Pearson: Article 308 … was not designed to allow the corrupt octopus to take power in areas later covered by the 1992 Maastricht treaty on European union …

There is no appeal against the [European] court’s judgments, however. That is the system by which we are now ruled. I submit that you have to be pretty deaf not to hear the jackboots marching, and pretty naive not to realise that they are coming this way. [Hansard]
So… the octopus is wearing the jackboots? The noble Lord’s word-picture may be slightly less sinister than he was hoping.
