Viscount Monckton, better known as Christopher Monckton, the journalist and author has today joined the UK Independence Party. UKIP Leader Malcolm Pearson said, "I am delighted that Lord Monckton has accepted my invitation to join UKIP as our chief spokesman on Climate Change.
"He was Margaret Thatcher's Special Adviser in Downing Street on a number of areas, including science. He is now perhaps the world's leading expert on the case against Man-made Global Warming, and as such is a household name in the United States and elsewhere."
Now, on top of Climategate, the media have another reason to ignore the party.
