Ukip aren’t just David Cameron and the Tories’ problem anymore

4 May 2014

4 May 2014

How the Tory party will react if, as excepted, Ukip pushes the party into third place in the European elections is one of the most discussed topics in UK politics. But overlooked in all this is how Labour will react if Farage’s party beats them on May 22nd.

If Ukip come top in the European Elections, as the polls indicate they have a very good chance of doing, Labour will be thrown into a panic. No opposition has ever triumphed at a general election having not won the previous European Elections. A failure in the European Elections would be a big blow to the idea that Ed Miliband is going to be the next Prime Minister.

Already, influential members of the shadow Cabinet are grumbling about how the leadership hasn’t taken these elections seriously enough. As I report in the Mail on Sunday today, there’s a lot of grumbling about how Labour’s campaign team were off in the States last week rather than here, preparing for this contest.

If Ukip do beat Labour and the Tories keep their nerve, two big ifs, then Cameron could emerge relatively unscathed from the Farage earthquake.

    I find it absolutely laughable, that Forsyth thinks UKIP are just going to disappear after the EU elections. The window has been opened, the fresh air has filled the room. The people will not go back to the old parties in 2015.
    Forsyth is right to note Milliband needs to be concerned; I live in the people’s republic of South Yorkshire, everyone I speak to seems to be voting UKIP on the 22nd. The people are sick of managed decline, time for people who believe in Britain.

  • Jikli

    In news: Tory canvassers are complaining they were chased out of a council estate by ‘UKIP supporters ‘ shouting “we want Nigel Farage” and throwing stones

    I shouldn’t laugh, or condone such behaviour, but it seems the public are starting to dish it out to Lab/Con/Lib.

    Still the MSM don’t get that this is the start of a British political revolution.

  • glurk

    I wish, I really wish I could trust any of them to do their job without lying. I agree its a foolish, childish pipe-dream to wish for that, we are what we are but Im so damn weary with the lot of them that Id vote for a real live fairy with a magic wand as long as she shut up from time to time… Im off to read OK mag…

      Because he saw what happened to Clegg and he doesn’t want the same thing to happen to him.

  • Denis_Cooper

    “Let me put the other side of this …” says Marr … almost as if he has ever done anything other than that.

  • Denis_Cooper

    Here are the results of the last elections to the EU Parliament in 2009:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/elections/euro/09/html/ukregion_999999.stm

    Look at the shares of the votes in 2009 and compare them to the opinion poll ratings for these elections, and it can be seen why being beaten by UKIP would not cause Labour anything like as much distress as it would cause the Tories.

    UKIP just beat Labour last time, with 16.5% versus 15.7%; but both are set to win more seats this time, while the Tories are set to lose seats they won in 2009.

  • Chingford Man

    What on earth possessed Miliband to go on a Marr sofa with Farage? Nigel just made him look like a shifty school swot running away from a debate.

    • Alexsandr

      meybe becaiuse he is shifty school swot running away from a debate.

    • Denis_Cooper

      Yes, he’s a fool; Cameron is wiser, or more cowardly, and if he debates with Farage at all it will not be a head-to-head, mano-a-mano, contest, because Cameron will insist on taking along three friends to help him.

  • tiooooijj

    Lab/Con/Lib could halt UKIP by holding a referendum before Christmas and leaving the EU,…….. they wont of course , the Grand EUSSR project must prevail at all costs!

    UKIP is already transforming itself into a professional party of domestic government.

    With a huge increase in funding and staffing after May….. Labour and Tories face a real fight in 2015

  • http://www.ukipsupporter.blogspot.co.uk/ Bill Sticker

    When not if the UKIP earthquake happens Cameron is finished. The night of the long knives will be a picnic compared to what the Tory troops will do to him post 22nd May. Likewis the smug Milliband is also sleepwalking to a humiliation the like of which he will scarcely comprehend.

    All Camerons empty promises will never materialise as he wont be around to lead the party long before 2017 ever gets here.

    Nigel for PM!!

    • Holly

      I agree with everything you say, right up to ‘smug……

  • Conway

    If Ukip do beat Labour and the Tories keep their nerve, two big ifs,
    then Cameron could emerge relatively unscathed from the Farage
    earthquake.
    ” That sounds like wishful thinking. If UKIP comes first, the political landscape will have changed forever. None of the traditional parties will emerge unscathed.

  • saffrin

    Miliband’s bottled it.

  • glurk

    Nigel at least talks faster than Milicent and with less melodramatic gesticulation, therefore getting it all over but I dont rate the purple socks..

    • Holly

      I spotted them as well….Is it some sub-conscious, twilight zone message?
      Maybe it will be a million pound question on some rubbish ITV quiz show of the future.
      Maybe we’re like some future contestants????

      • glurk

        Just what I was thinking….we’ll mint it! donate to some cause or other (not political) or.,….. shoes…….call me!

  • swatnan

    If the Tories and Labour had any sense, they’d write off these Euros and give them up as a bad lot. By 2015 UKIPs thunder will have been truly spent, and there will be internal strife and eventual decline just like the BNP.

    • Alexsandr

      dream on.

  • Raddiy

    Kippers living and working in the North have been talking on the blogs since before the 2010GE that the old Labour working class vote was coming to us because of the betrayal they felt after the open door in 2004. For 4 years we have been ignored as the Westminster bubble has been obsessed with it only being a Tory problem.

    Might I suggest if you want to know something about what is going on, you might be better served getting out and talking to people like NIgel and the rest of us do, rather than repetitively pontificating the same old, same old Westminster clueless analysis from the comfort of your offices.

    Here is another tip for you. The commentariat are predicting the UKIP vote will crash after the Euro’s, and the Westminster politicians are hoping the UKIP will crash after the Euro’s.
    It won’t, it will grow some more upto Newark, and then perhaps drop back a bit before stabilising at or around where it is today 12-15% to the GE campaign, our big advancement in the North will be upto 2020 as Milliband and Co hack off even more of the working class by ignoring them.
    Labour are scared in the North, they have been even worse then the Tories in recognising that their hegemony over a large section of the population is coming to an end. They are going to have the biggest wake up call imaginable on the 22nd, and it is at this eleventh hour that they are just starting to realise what is going on, and surprise, surprise responding with exactly the same panic measures that the Tories used.
    If politics wasn’t such a serious matter, it would be laughable watching their mindless drones talking to people in such a condescending manner, as if the only news their ‘client state’ have access to is the Daily Mirror.

    • Tom

      I don’t know if you watch QT but Yvette Cooper was on there and she was saying, we understand people’s concern about immigration Labour made a mistake before and we are listening to what people have to say.
      How patronising and how transparent to try and win a few votes with these platitudes.

      • Raddiy

        I try to avoid QT, I am running out of bricks, and can’t afford to keep replacing the telly. :-)
        I know what you mean, they all say it on the doorstep, but have nothing to say. A Labour guy recently told me they have been told not to bring up immigration or the EU, and to try and avoid any public conversations with a voter that wants to discuss it.

        • Wessex Man

      I have been saying for a while that UKIP will do okay in the North.

      I would love to see Farage take Balls seat…and his Mrs/any little helper take Cooper’s.
      Two of the most bogus bods I’ve ever seen….Until Chuck or Harman comes on the telly.

    • the viceroy’s gin

      I don’t believe David Cameron can survive a sub-20% showing in these elections.

      Somebody in that clueless gaggle of greedheads will have to sober up and realize that it’s time to make a move. The ship is badly holed, and it’s going to go down, absent firm action.

      • Holly

        Plus the fact that he”l still be handcuffed to Clegg & Co who will be even more unreliable Coalition partners after the drubbing their lot hopefully get in the Euro elections.
        What is the collective term for a bunch of mardy Lib Dems?

        • the viceroy’s gin

          My term for them is “hostages”.

          A proper conservative would have made them hostages the moment they put their signature on that coalition agreement.

  • Smithersjones2013

    I hear Downing Street is peddling a 2-3-5 (1. Miliband vs Cameron, 2. Miliband vs Cameron vs Clegg, 3. Miliband vs Cameron vs Clegg vs Farage vs Bennett) approach to the General election debates.

    Well let me be the first to say that should this be the agreed format I will boycott the Misfit vs the Creep snore bore of lies and the further pointless uninformative exercise that adds the worthless Clegg. To support those two debates will be to support the corrupt closed shop of the establishment parties that has done so much damage to this country since the second world war. I will only watch the real debate with the leaders of the five parties who will seriously contest this election.

    Isn’t it about times that the debates and all other considerations regarding elections were viewed through the unbiased prism of the intent of all parties to win a majority (i.e. by putting up sufficient candidates) rather than resort to this negotiation circus with government parties who are only concerned about giving themselves as much improper advantage as possible

    Its very simple to set a rule that says any party who puts up 326 (or a higher threshold) of candidates will be included in the debates and any party who objects can sit them out. That would end the cycle of tiresome and irritating debate over a minor aspect of election bureaucracy.

    These debates should not be for the benefit of the Prime Minister or Leader of the Opposition but for the benefit of the British public and to continue with these farcical negotiations with Downing Street is an abuse of democracy!

    PS We do not have a presidential system in this country and it is arrogant, elitist, self-serving and undemocratic of Downing Street to even contemplate such a pretense no matter how in awe of/ love with himself Cameron is….

    • the viceroy’s gin

      It is an open question as to whether the current occupants of Downing Street will still be occupants therein, come these “debates”.

      The Speccie’s Cameroonian lickspittle is yammering about the Millipedes being hurt by UKIP, but it is his buddy Dave who is at risk, 18 days from now.

  • Richard N

    Liblabcon – and of course, the EU Commission – will be congratulating themselves on the EU having been designed so that no matter what happens in the EU elections, the totally unelected EU Commission, unaccountable to anybody, can carry on regardless of the make-up of the rubber stamp EU Parliament.

    So much for European democracy now. Europe is ruled by an unelected government – the EU Commission – which, together with the place men at the head of all EU national governments, hold all the cards of power, where the EU Parliament is only there to delude the suckers into thinking that they still live in democracies.

    • Holly

      That is precisely why I do not vote in the EU elections….They are simply a tool to make us think we have some sway on what gets churned out every day….Farage is part of the problem as far as I’m concerned.

      IF he fought elections over here, with as much enthusiasm as he does to protect his own position over in Europe, maybe, just maybe he would already have a couple of seats in the UK Parliament by now.

      What has any MEP, from any member country, achieved for their people?
      What will Farage be able to sort out for the benefit of the UK if he does win?
      Diddley squat!
      Diktats, rules and bureaucratic mumbo jumbo, followed to the letter by the Labour party, and continued, to a fashion, with a few pleasantries, under the Coalition.
      In 2010 Cameron should have said to the EU…’YOU have X number of months to give us X, Y, Z’, ‘or we have an ‘IN’ ‘OUT’ referendum in May 2014’…..
      Oh I forgot…I’m stupid….The EU doesn’t ‘work’ like that

      • Richard N

        Why on earth do people persist in saying Cameron should have said this or that to the EU?

        Incredible that people STILL don’t realize that Cameron, Milliband and Clegg are EU puppets – and they would never have been made head of their respective parties if they had not signed up to the EU conspiracy.

        Do people really, seriously, think it is some amazing coincidence that every single head of government for all countries of the EU is gung-ho pro-EU?

        How can people still not get this?

        Just as the EU Parliament is a complete sham, so is the delusion that the mainstream national parties of all Europe are remotely democratic?

        With the block vote system whereby all MPs obey whatever their EU puppet masters order them – with those national leaders in turn being ordered by their EU masters on what policies to have, EVERYTHING is controlled by the EU Commission.

        All the rest is just illusion – to sucker people into not realizing that all Europe is now governed by the EU Commission, who are elected by nobody, and accountable to nobody.

        And in just the same, all mainstream European media is controlled by the EU, via their puppet national parties in each country.

        That is why you have seen UKIP being endlessly attacked for ‘racism’ by all of the media and the liblabcon EU puppet party – because the EU fears any party depending on a sense of national identity above all other things.

      • ButcombeMan

        Being an MEP gives a platform for promoting change across Europe that a national parliamentarian cannot achieve.,

        There is even a view, not far from Cameron, that a huge vote for UKIP strengthens the hand of the next government.

        You should vote UKIP in the EU elections for that reason

      • Tom

        I know you don’t like Farage but I can’t see how he as let UKIP down in elections.

    • Will Rees

      The EUropean Parliament will have to endorse the European Council’s choice for the Commision under the new rules (in the treaty we didn’t get a vote on). Looks like they may well stick it to the Council and put their own suggestions forward saying that it is they who have the mandate. Would be similar to how we end up with UK government.

      Thing is not sure they do have a mandate all the stuff I’m hearing about in the EUro elections is immigration (not a EP function), lots of stuff about the Scotland referendum (not a EP function), even the bedroom tax (not a EP function).

      How can you claim a mandate if you expect people to give you one due to entirely unrelated things?

      If the EP does thrawt the wishes of the Council, could be the start of UK government unravelling. And extended life for UKIP. Will also be worth seeing what sie of the fence SNP takes in that debate – they used their PEB to tell me about September, ticking it to Westminster must be tempting but they need Council to get in EU if things go their way.

  • Gwangi

    The fact is that most people just do not think the way the London-centric and Westminster village media pixies do, and not the way the political elite do either.
    Let me give one example: Jeremy Clarkson mumbles a well-known rhyme in a clip he knows won’t be broadcast, and without any intention to disparage or offend anyway.
    What happens? Does it get ignored as it should have been. Nope – the racist obsessives at the BBC and in our pc elites have a characteristically niggardly response to anyone who dares use a word on their banned list, even if it was mumbled and never broadcast and not in any way in a racist context.
    And so the diversity dogs growl and snarl at him – and the swivel-eyed mob circles and jeers, hungry for a hanging.
    Most people see this for the absurd over-reaction and distraction that it is; and most can see how anyone with views that do not fit the media’s pc touchy-feeliness is singled out, picked on, rejected and – if possible – taken off air (just ask David Starkey). That is an example of why UKIP is getting more and more support. They are the only party that has not lost all sense of proportion and common sense on such matters.

    • derek thecat

      Excellent post…..thank you!

    • Faceless Bureaucrat

      Has anyone asked how the ‘Out-take’ from Clarkson’s piece got passed to the media? who was responsible for this act? Just askin…

      • Holly

        Who cares?
        I love Clarkson.

  • starfish

    Two weeks of vilification and character assassination by the MSM has produced record polls for UKIP

    Lucky the bubble muppets really understand public opinion isnt it

    Looling forward to similar levels of scrutiny for lib lab con…..

  • DavidL

    When considering who gets my vote in the European Elections I can choose UKIP if I’m in favour of getting out of the EU; I can vote Conservative, if I’m in favour of trying to change the EU from within, but leave open the option of leaving. I can vote LibDem if I am unreservedly in favour of staying in. But what am I voting for if I vote Labour? Does it have a position on Europe? I genuinely don’t know.

    • Grey Wolf

      Labour does have a position – stupid as it may be – status quo.

    • Rhoda Klapp8

      Please explain where you heard that the tories are willing to leave the EU if they can’t change it? Cameron has stated explicitly that he wants to stay in. They have never discussed the possibility of actually leaving, they are desperate to avoid saying that having hung their hats on the quite unrealistic proposition of renegotiation followed by a referendum which would not be a binding in/out and even if it were who could expect an unwilling government to carry out the will of the people if it was out?

      Tory policy is just a delaying action. It isn’t realistic in any other terms. It is designed to keep eurosceptics contained while not offending europhiles.

    • Wessex Man

      go to bed till June!

    • Conway

      It believes that you shouldn’t have a say in the matter.

  • cromwell

    Go UKIP break the establishment consensus politics hopefully will force labour back to basics, i.e. a socialist alternative.

  • an ex-tory voter

    Milliband and Co have ambled along smirking to themselves as they see Cameron struggling to contain UKIP, all the while expecting an easy UKIP assisted victory for Labour.

    Suddenly Labour begin see UKIP is just as much a threat to them! Why the surprise? Labour / Tory / Lib Dem are all pushing virtually identical policies with regard to Europe and to immigration. They are therefore equally vulnerable to attack from UKIP.

    UKIP has as much relevance to the low paid, under paid, unskilled, semi-skilled and unemployed indigenous population as it does to the those seeking an exit from the EU and the return of sovereignty.

    Labour have woken up to the threat, but it is far too late. UKIP already has the momentum needed to take outright victory in the European Parliamentary Elections.

    All the efforts by the paid trolls who have suddenly appeared here will not make one jot of difference to the result on the 22nd.

    • Holly

      I did reply to you, but it has been sent into the ether.

      • an ex-tory voter

        Nevertheless, thanks for taking the trouble.

  • Iain Hill

    Parties are woefully obsessed with themselves and scoring points over each other.
    They ignore the elephant in the room, which is that the UK is breaking up [or down?] of its own accord. Scotland is going, and NI will be next.. The DK of England will be left trying to dominate only itself.

    Why has no UK government thought into the future and “made an offer” to its constituent countries based on a loose federation organised so that all decisions are made in line with the wishes of the people? Is it too late even now?

    All the rest is simply a ploy to ensure that people like Marr and Miliband get paid salaries beyond their value as entertainers. Sounds bitter? It is, since so many opportunities have been bypassed.

    • Holly

      They have become so juvenile they are insulting.

      • Wessex Man

        they always have been.

    • Jonathan Burns

      Despite what online polls have been showing re Scotland, traditional polls show very little change with high 30% wanting independence, high 40% not wanting it and 20% undecided. Westminster would want rid of NI but people ignore the fact that Catholics are slit three ways between status quo, united Ireland and don’t care. Status quo has a small lead in fact.

  • ButcombeMan

    I watched that terrible performance by Milliband on Marr this morning. Quite plain that Farage was toying with him and vastly amused.

    Milliband did not rise to the challenge to debate Europe with Farage within the next two weeks.

    “Frit” would seem to apply.

    Milliband does not show any trace of courage or even much brain.

    Truly awful.

    • Holly

      Decided to tidy up the garden, when I saw these two were on.

      Much more interesting, and fulfilling, to watch a blackbird eating worms at the side of you. It is quite an ‘honour’.

      • ButcombeMan

        Holly.
        I am a stickler for detail and accuracy. .

        Did you “tidy up the garden” or did you “do the washing up” or, much more likely, are you trolling & making it up as you go along.

        I have seen through you.

  • @PhilKean1

    .
    If UKIP beat Labour and Cameron’s Party in the Euro elections, then the British people are the winners.

    Sadly, some of them don’t yet understand why this is the case.
    .

    • Holly

      Only because we have been kept in the dark.
      The MSM have decided what we hear for decades.
      I reckon the three main parties have pushed us to the point of no return..
      Whether that will transpire in the General Election, who knows.
      Do enough of us have the bottle to make the ‘tough choice’??
      Could I ever ‘hold my nose’, become a hypocrite, and vote for Farage’s party?
      I don’t know whether that would be too ‘tough’ a choice to make.
      I can not stand the EU trougher.

      • @PhilKean1

        .
        Yes, Holly. The establishment parties have backed us into a corner.

        And yet, even today, they arrogantly assume we’ll come running back to them in 2015.

        Best they learn now that there is a far greater danger facing the British than Socialist Labour. Labour can be removed at General Elections – THE EU CAN’T !
        .

        • Tom

          Correct the way some people go on you would think putting Labour into power was a life decision.
          Should Labour get in I think it may well spell the end of them as a powerful party, they will make such a mess of it they will lose thousands of voters and more than likely to UKIP.

          • Holly

            Put Labour back in, and we will be so far ‘in Europe’ NO ONE will be (legally) able to get us out.

            • @PhilKean1

              Then Cameron needs to start taking Britain’s loss of Sovereignty seriously so we are able to vote for his party.

              The longer he thinks he can get away with insulting our intelligence, the more irrecoverable the situation becomes.
              .

            • ButcombeMan

              Holly. If you are going to comment like that It would surely be better to read the rules?

              Article 50 can always get us out, it is in the rules of the club (though Cameron dare not mention it). It provides for two years to negotiate subsequent arrangements/relationship..

              Any attempt to overturn or remove Article 50, automatically triggers a referendum in Britain or that is the united position of LibLabCon.

          • @PhilKean1

            The same old coercion is being exerted for 2015 as it was in 2010.

            Sadly, and to my eternal shame, I stupidly gave Cameron the benefit of the doubt and voted for him.
            You will understand how betrayed I felt when he did the opposite of what he led us to believe once he’d secured our votes.

          YES IT CAN!

          Either a UKIP / Tory coalition evokes Article 50.

          Or even 34% vote UKIP, for a UKIP majority Govt.

          There is no other route, bar civil war, and hopefully, that’s far less likely than a UKIP Govt.

          Which is your choice?

          • @PhilKean1

            I and anyone I can convince WILL be voting UKIP unless Cameron stops insulting our intelligence.

          I am one of ‘those’ who say they do not slavishly support any political party, if they do stuff that I find…..erm….Off-putting.
          Labour….proven many times to be unfit for office.
          Lib Dems…Untrustworthy, slimy creeps.
          Cameron… a limp wristed liberal, who gives in to Clegg far too easy, even when going against a policy proposed by his own team.
          Farage a trougher over in Europe….

          I do not owe any of them my vote, and up to now, none of them are worthy of it.
          Sick of the lot of them.

          • Raddiy

            You moan about them Holly, and then every 4-5 years vote the same way, giving you something to moan about for the next 4-5 years.

            The simple fact is we are never going to fix our broken democracy if people are too scared to stand up and be counted. You could moan for the rest of your life, and go to your grave having failed to change anything. We can’t move forward to a new politics if people are afraid to let go of nanny.

              I have voted for Thatcher, Michael Howard, and Cameron.
              Two of them would NEVER have dumped us where we are today, and one of them, said one thing, and did nothing.

              I am not fearful of voting, I am fearful of what the gobshites in the running intend to do.

              I sat and watched Farage’s interview with Marr, and simply ‘listened’.
              I then did the same with Miliband, and I turned it off when it got to the railways bit…Why does he smirk all the time? He comes across as if he is taking the pi*s.

              Farage did not say anything that I did not wholeheartedly agree with.
              Miliband droned on, I stopped listening, and my eyes glazed over! I went and did the washing up FGS!
              How many questions did Marr actually manage to get in, during his ‘interviewing of Miliband, so as not to interrupt his well rehearsed set pieces.

              Going on what I saw and heard today….
              Mmmmmm….. maybe I’m going to be a hypocrite on 22 May?????

  • you_kid

    This is what the future of British public discourse will look like: a discussion about ‘Forward Socialism’

    Red Ed pretends to offer a socialist alternative to the people of Britain. Of course we understand he is not really doing that at all.
    The energy price cap does not address the core issue of lack of competition in the markets.
    The rent cap does not address the core issue of undeserved asset price rises in the capital city only.

    None of Red Ed’s policies are socialist because his policies are carefully worded LibLabCon policies. The only REAL socialists are UKIP – they are the ones offering as their main message in the Euros the message of restrictions to free movement of labour based on *skill*. They only propose socialist protectionism of what could be a free market. Red Ed could never do that.

    Only UKIP are true socialists.

    Say it loud and with pride:
    I vote UKIP because I am a socialist!

    • the viceroy’s gin

      Well, yes, you are a socialist nutter envirowhacko, no doubt, you and all your sockpuppets.

      • you_kid

        Is this your response to my superior outlook, lad?
        It is high time for the socialists of Britain to unite. UKIP could play an active role in all of this. Forward Socialism of curtailing markets instead of offering an environment in which the markets could function is the name of the UKIP game. Your great new leader has confirmed many times it was!

        • the viceroy’s gin

          …all your carbon dioxide producing gibberish is frying the planet, lad. And nobody’s reading it anyway.

          • you_kid

            Plant food, lad – that would be plant food.
            Are you saying you worry about that now? Only socialists do, lad.

            • the viceroy’s gin

              Nope, still impenetrable gibberish, lad. Can you get a fellow nutter translator in here?

        • Grey Wolf

    • Wessex Man

      Well if you want to say loud and proud say it.

  • Colin

    I’d like to think UKIP could win the EU Elections and then go on to secure a couple of seats of the 2015 General Election. I really would, because it would provide the platform for the beginning of the total reset our political system badly needs.

    The Political / Media Complex currently has its collective foot on our collective throat; so, it would be interesting to see the reaction of the media if Farage and his pals ended up holding the balance of power after the next election. In reality, UKIP may only require three or 4 seats for that to happen. sadly, however, in reality, the deck is stacked against UKIP at a General Election and nothing short of a political earthquake / miracle will see them with even one seat. Which is a shame.

    • the viceroy’s gin

      If they take +40% on May 22, it’d be hard to keep them locked out of Parliament. They’d only need half that support to begin taking MP’s.

      • you_kid

        The beauty of FPTP English democrackery.

        • the viceroy’s gin

          …can any other of you socialist nutters translate this nutter’s gibberish?

          • Iain Hill

            Perfectly sensible to reasonable people.

            • oldestel

              Well tells us then – what is he trying to say?.

            • Inverted Meniscus

              No it is utter gibberish and socialist nuttery.

            • the viceroy’s gin

              Perfectly sensible to you socialist nutters, you mean.

    • Tom

      We will know more after the local elections, which will show where the strongest support is for UKIP.
      In the comres poll it showed 52% of those from the West Midlands certain to vote, will vote for UKIP.
      I am from the West Midlands and I feel it can be an happy hunting ground for UKIP.
      There are many marginals and in a 3 way split anything around 30% could win a seat.

      • you_kid

        ComRes are con artists. You do not understand their data, never mind what kind of certainty a 2,052 weighted=unweighted sample figure actually delivers.

        • the viceroy’s gin

          …have you polled all your sockpuppets yet, lad? They’d be heavily weighted to the socialist nutter persuasion, we’d guess.

        • Tom

          We shall see how far out they are quite soon.
          Normally they are one of the more reliable.

    • Holly

      This is another reason I get bemused…
      Why would people vote for UKIP as a ‘protest’, then go and vote for the parties they say they are ‘protesting’ against in the General Election?
      Surely it is in the General Election when we should be voting for UKIP en masse. Otherwise the political bods will continue to take our vote for granted, and rightly so, if we are so rubbish at making ‘tough’ decisions.

      Have the Westminster bubble bods got a better handle on us, and how we act in certain situations, than we think?

      • the viceroy’s gin

        Yes, they know that 60-80% of the electorate is pure tribalist, and will vote for whichever tribe of LibLabCon is their fav. They’d vote for Fidel Castro, if he held up their tribal banner.

        The question is, how many of these tribalists will show up to vote?

        • Seadog

          Not that I would know of course, but it is said that the first time you commit adultery is the hardest, thereafter it gets progressively easier. Perhaps this applies to voting UKIP as well.

          • the viceroy’s gin

            Well, some of the Kippers seem to have been caught en flagrante YouTube recently, as I recall, so we should be wary of video cameras in all our electoral affairs.

            • Wessex Man

              Well, some of the Tories seem to have been en flagrante at their Tory party Conference in 2011 at taxpayers exspense in an Hotel paid for by the taxpayers of this country!

              • the viceroy’s gin

                …I think they were caught en flagrante poofter, as I recall. So I guess by the newer rules, that makes it ok, if not mandatory.

      • Colin

        Like I wrote, barring a political earthquake, ala Canada, when the mainstream parties were almost wiped out, the current system makes it hard for Farage and his pals to make the breakthrough they (we) need, come a general election.

        • the viceroy’s gin

          The process in Canada took nearly 15 years to come to fruition, and more actually. The Camerluvvies are going to be wiped out, it will just take a similar amount of time.

  • saffrin

    Still voting UKIP regardless of news Miliband is “thinking” about re-nationalising the railways.

  • cargill55

    None of the Liblabcon oligarchy is interested in anything other than meeting the needs of themselves, cronies, big business and buying votes through lied wherever a they can.
    The legacy of Liblabcon over the last two decades confirms it is not fit for government and needs to be confronted and swept away.
    In time UKIP will do that.

    • you_kid

      The Magna Carta oligarchy is unopposed by UKIP.
      They look outwards to blame immigration and the EU, not inwards to seek clarity of thought about what/who governs us. That is why they will fail – because, like Labour, they do not addess the core of any given/home-made issue.

      • the viceroy’s gin

        …is that the consensus of all your sockpuppets, lad?

        • you_kid

          hahaha! spent some time, have you?

          • the viceroy’s gin

            Normal people aren’t sockpuppet trolls like you, laddie.

            • you_kid

              You are a rough and unintelligent oaf, that is clear for everyone to see. Gather your sockpuppets, lad – you will need them to comfort you, given what’s coming.

          …UK politicians. Who, over my lifetime, have been sinking us deeper and deeper into the EU….It is not entirely fair to blame the EU behemoth, when the UK politicians we elect are the ones adhering to what THEY signed us up to…

          Behemoth.. (love that word, reminds me of the episode of the Simpsons, where they bought the camper van)

          • Realpolitik/ fruitcake/ racist

            The EU is the problem. It doesn’t matter who got us into it, what matters is who will get us out, but we can make a fair guess the one’s who got us into “the project” won’t be the ones to get us out.

      • cargill55

        Actually UKIP sees mass uncontrolled immigration as a consequence of broke uk and EU government.

    • telemachus

      The first cross-party campaign to condemn Nigel Farage’s party as racist is to be launched this week amid fresh polls showing Ukip may come first across England in the European elections in May.

      The campaign is led by the former Labour immigration minister Barbara Roche, who claimed: “Ukip’s campaign needs to be exposed for what it is, a racist campaign. The party is practising what is in effect a form of ‘Euracism’. They are deploying the same language and tactics used by openly racist parties like the BNP, but instead of targeting migrants from Africa and Asia they are targeting migrants from within the EU.”

      • Ricky Strong

        “Euracism” – best joke of the weekend that one tele

        As for the racism you don’t need to tell us twice, we know it.

        We want sensible immigration – we are racist
        We love our country – we are racist
        We want the ability to elect and remove those whom we invest our sovereignty in – we are racist
        We want to help shape the laws under which we live – we are racist
        We think the country is becoming overcrowded – we are racist
        We think our national identity is fading – we are racist
        We are proud of our history – we are racist
        We love our culture – we are racist
        We are sick and tired of our stagnated political system – we are racist……

        • telemachus

          Euracism has it correct
          I have spent the lat four days on the knocker in one of our great northern cities

            And they will vote accordingly.

            • telemachus

              What is wrong is that we have a political party in our country that is gaining credence for appealing to the base instincts of racism

              • Colonel Mustard

                What is wrong is that we have suffered from the lies of people like you and your horrid party for too long.

              • Blindsideflanker

                Can you define racism?

                • Tom Allalone

                  Racism is any opinion put forward by anyone with whom the liberal left disagree. Anything that is not politically correct is, by definition, racist.

              • Holly

                What is wrong is, we have two dominant political parties and neither one of them seem to get the gist of the public mood.

          • Ricky Strong

            I do agree, there is a climate of fear and it is continually being stoked by the media, who instead of producing unbiased reports on what the key political debates are in this country make examples of the worst case scenarios and the very small minority of idiots.

            • telemachus

              The media did not put up the racist billboards
              UKIP clearly took advantage of the media’s duty to expose the moral degeneracy of this racist party
              Sadly this duty exposed the base instincts of a segment of our voters

              • Wessex Man

                You are worse than Nikki Sinclair just because you failed to win a seat for Ukip, you sad person you.

              • Ricky Strong

                No, but they did single out every UKIP nut job the length and breadth of this country without giving so much as a paragraph for the 99% who hold legitimate concerns and reasonable views.

                • telemachus

                  What has become apparent over the last week or so is that it is so easy to find racist Ukip nutjobs that each newspaper has been able to find enough separate such to fill their pages
                  If Farage had an ounce of integrity he would apologise for the posters

                • Ricky Strong

                  As I pointed out on another post, if you want to find racists you can find them in any corner of society and in abundance. The Sikhs that own my local pub are some of the most racist people you will ever meet when it comes to Muslims (though I must add those same Sikhs are some of the most caring and generous people I have ever met). If you want to find racists you will, there are many of them, but they are a minority of people, we as a society have moved on from such immature views. It is you who is being disingenuous by smearing many good people with the foul racist brush and it will hit you hard in the elections. Listen to people more and try to understand their concerns before you condemn them.

                • telemachus

                  Astonishing
                  Of course I agree with what you say
                  But the issue is a leader who embraces racists and promulgates racist policies

                • Ricky Strong

                  If embracing racists begins by banning outright former BNP members then I am stumped.

                  As for policies, which race of people does Nigel aim them at?

                • telemachus

                  You can create good sound bites by banning former members as members
                  This is worthless if you at the same time go out to attract B N P voters

                • Ricky Strong

                  Soundbites?

                  Like a millionaire pontificating about a ‘cost of living crisis’?

                  For the record I know quite a few BNP members, most of them are just very frustrated but don’t know the best way to express their feelings. Without sounding like you and being condescending most of the BNP supporters I know didn’t have the best schooling, but if you talk to them openly and honestly I find that you can tame an otherwise extreme view. It’s a much better method than just wiping them off of your clunky opinionated boots.

                • Colonel Mustard

                  No he doesn’t. You are lying and smearing.

                • Holly

                  That is FAR too polite!
                  Glad you also included how nice sikhs are….because they are.

                • Ricky Strong

                  Their generosity is an example to us all. Everyone thinks Jesus fed the masses but I have no doubt it would have been the Sikhs who fed Jesus.

                • Conway

                  They also failed to single out and publicise any of the many nut jobs from Labour, Lib Dems and Tories. Sins of omission, one might say.

                • Ricky Strong

                  Quite right. Was it 7 black Labour members who walked over over claims of racism? I’m only going on what I heard on QT because lo and behold it sure wasn’t in any newspaper.

                  You know well that Gordon had more integrity in his little toe than Farage
                  You should campaign to get back to a political landscape where you can trust our leaders

                • Wessex Man

                  I’d ask your fellow party person Gillian Duffy about that tele baby.

                • telemachus

                  Duffy was a bigot
                  There are fewer bigots however in the whole of the Labour party than Ukip bigots in Sheffield

                  There is I agree a lot of work to do to educate and persuade

                • Colonel Mustard

                  Yes, you lot are not prepared to learn anything or admit when you are wrong. It is always someone else’s fault and you think they should all be coerced to conform to your ideas.

                  THAT is the problem with Labour.

                • telemachus

                  I believe in credit where credit is due
                  Yes of course there have been mistakes
                  But the balance check tells us that under Labour there is a fairer happier society
                  We should not seek more

                • Colonel Mustard

                  You believe in nothing but lying in order to win. You have admitted as such on many occasions here.

                  The balance check tells us nothing of the sort unless we swallow your party’s ridiculous propaganda. Under Labour our society has become more sectarian, more divisive, more violent, more unjust, more unequal, more grievance ridden and more miserable. So away with your silly boasts you party political goblin.

                • Wessex Man

                  I see, Gillian Duffy, a card carrying labour member is a bigot because she is concerned that UK people can’t get jobs after unfair competition from Eastern Europe.

                  This is why traditional Labour voters are joining UKip in droves.

                  You are truly a gift to UKip, keep it up.

                • telemachus

                  Folk want honesty and integrity

                • Colonel Mustard

                  Which is why they are turning to UKIP. Your party is rotten to the core and your silly propaganda is wasted here.

                  Now go away.

                • Wessex Man

                  You stated on another thread that you did, the fact that you said it I rather think is now causing you problems, you said it hoping to knock UKip and thought that people would forget that you said it. You now know that I haven’t. You can now fess up and say you lied in the first instance or that you are lying now.

            Now that these ‘issues’ she ‘understands’ so well are having an effect on her bods, we are all, once again ‘racists’.

            There is nothing racist in that UKIP poster. Unless it’s because the hand is white….

            • Colonel Mustard

              It is beyond tedious. Racism used to refer to discrimination against those of another race. ‘Europeans’ as a generic are the same race as the indigenous British. Now xenophobia (itself extended to mean more than the word implies) has become ‘racism’. It is typical of the left that the only way to escape the accusation is to buy into their perverse manipulation of the language.

              Inventing ‘Euracism’ just demonstrates what a sick and twisted puppy Roche is. She has no business ‘leading’ anything, let alone a campaign ‘against’ a perfectly legitimate political party. In fact she is inciting racial hatred by doing so and I hope someone complains to the police about HER.

        • telemachus

          What you will get and what you should expect is a campaign across the political spectrum to get away from the racism of the last 2 weeks and back to the broad issues of EU membership

          • Colonel Mustard

            And what you will get is the lesson of how people vote in the Euro elections regardless of what you think think they should get and expect you arrogant twerp.

            • telemachus

              We all accept that Farage’s racist campaign will deliver a victory on 22 May
              More of a drubbing for the Tories than the forces of reason
              However I would wager that this will not translate into more than four or five seats in Westminster, if that next year
              The voters are fortunately wise enough to know that Farage cann deliver nothing in a real poll, as well as having no policies on the issues of th day

      Unfortunately Ed’s cynical appeal to the naive youth who think nationalising everything and capping rents and energy prices will magically make everything ok is gaining purchase. Cameron needs to get the Iraq inquiry reporting quick smart, before the general election, just to remind everyone what the last labour government, of which Ed was an integral part, got up to. People have very short memories as these useless 1970’s style policies show.

      • the viceroy’s gin

        That won’t help. The Camerluvvies are neocon nutters, just like Lab were. In fact, the Millipedes could turn it around and say it’s the Camerloons who are lying their way into Libyan and Syrian wars, plus Ukraine now.

      • http://www.frankfisher.org Frank Fisher

        Labour voters have managed to forget Iraq. The level of denial is staggering. You’re right about kids though – they’re not stupid, just ignorant and brainwashed, in the main, thanks to the BBC.
