EVER wonder what a world where Neil Hamilton is the deputy PM is like? No, me neither, why waste time on impossibilities, eh?

But that is what happens in, UKIP: The First 100 Days (Channel4, Monday, 9pm) which envisages a world where the party achieves a swing big enough for Hodor from Game of Thrones to joyfully sit on to have man-frog Nigel Farage catapulted into power, rocking up at No.10 with a fag in his mouth.

Shot in a mocu-mentary style which is kind of a cross between rolling news, The Thick of It and Inside The Commons while borrowing apocalypse film-style news bulletin montages, the first 100 days of a UKIP Britain are explored with policies solely about immigration and the EU – shock and awe – being imposed right from the off.

Britain pulls out of the EU (dubbed Brexit), ex-servicemen are guaranteed jobs in the Border Agency, borders are tightened, thousands of immigration raids take place and a ‘festival of Britain’ is announced on a new Bank Holiday.

Essentially, some things kind of go to pot and other things work alright, basically like what happens when any party takes control of a country, just with more angry lefties and scowling skinheads shouting and throwing street furniture at each other.

Due to Brexit, companies pull out of the UK, but presumably the immigration crackdown provides a boon for the handcuffs and batons industry not since seen – easy joke alert – the opening weekend of Fifty Shades of Grey, thus balancing out the loss of jobs.

All of this is seen largely through the eyes of Indian UKIP MP for Romford Deepa Kaur who is torn between her background and her family’s politics and the promise of promotion and career success– a bit like that time I was given the opportunity to become Archbishop of Canterbury.

And then everyone woke up as the First-Past-The-Post system means the chances of Mr Farage being in No. 10 come May are smaller than Verne Troyer’s short shorts.

All in all, UKIP: The First 100 Days is a well-shot, interesting take on sliding doors politics which, one imagines, was scrutinised by all sides of the political spectrum for signs of bias and offensiveness (like UKIP supporters being portrayed as largely bald, white Cockneys), but hints at there being a basic good in all politicians, regardless of hue.
