Rupert Matthews in the rain

He may be about to become the East Midlands' newest MEP, but Rupert Matthews has gone uncharacteristically quiet.

"Mr Matthews declined to be interviewed, saying he had been advised not to speak until after taking up the post," the Leicester Mercury reported last week. But it doesn't say who gave him this advice or why he decided to accept it.

So we will have to make do with old videos for the time being. This one does not show him interviewing someone who saw a UFO or telling us that EU Panzers are poised to invade Britain. It's just a bit of local politics from Linolnshire.

Still, you have to enjoy the contrast between the ambitious opening titles and the downbeat content that follows them.
