UKIP’s Young and Old Jumpers

UKIP must be doing something right when even the liberal metropolitan elite are discussing their high profile defections over macchiatos this morning. In the Guardian, Sir Michael White thinks he has found the future leader of the Eurosceptics, and he’s not talking about Roger Helmer MEP, who finally had enough of Sayeeda Warsi and jumped from the Tories this weekend:

“Smartly dressed and well-spoken, sporting long blonde hair and 3in heels, she does not fit the Ukip stereotype. No blazer and regimental tie, no beard or beer gut, Swann is researching a PhD on 19th century social Darwinism and the small state”

The lines from former CF Chairman Alexandra Swann’s speech that could really stick “are this Liberal Democrat led government” and David Cameron being “as true a Conservative as Belgium is a real country.” She certainly got the room going…

    The problem with UKIP apart from having one policy, is that apart from Farage they are mainly filled with oddballs.

      And if the comparison with other UKIP members means that Farage doesn’t look like an oddball, then UKIP *really* have a problem

        Do you consider many of the current Westminster tribe “normal”? Which of the UKIP policies do you consider “odd”, speaking as a tory, obviously?

          Why put all the good work done by the LibLabCon in the past few decades at risk by voting for UKIP?

          Just because you may agree with some of their policies like taking control of our borders, retaking sovereignty from the EU or calling bullshit on the ecotards Global Warming myth, does not mean you should desert the heroes of the mainstream parties who continue to steer our nation on the path to greatness.

          Farage, No matter what you think of him, HE TELLS THE TRUTH, Very dangerous to the Political Elite.
          A bit like Ron Paul, no wonder the media want to portray him as a bit of a loon, He has some Balls going up against the State.

        For a site that prides itself on tittle tattle and gossip I’m surprised that you failed to mention that the Tory MP David Morris (45 year old) was caught in a compromising position with the trollop last year. Oh, and that she was his researcher at the time. Even Toilets Maguire’s rag were able to scoop you on that. If I was Farage’s wife I’d make sure she was fitted with a chastity belt before she tempts hubby.

            One story I would like to hear fully is the one the News of the World had about ten years ago about a front bench Labour M.P. who allowed blokes to shag his wife while he watched. Apparently the story was spiked when Alistair Campbell dropped them information about Tory MP Piers Merchant’s dalliance with a 17 year old as a sweetener.

            I remember this mentioned in Private Eye some years ago have wondered ever since who the socialist voyeur was.

        EUKIP are going nowhere, just like for the past 18 years. Biggest problem is Farage who won’t let anyone of substance stay because they rapidly realise Farage is a fraud who’s interested in filling his pockets to the max in EU expenses. The history of EUKIP is littered with competent people who have rapidly departed after getting the measure of Farage and his cronies.

        Latest batch of election results bear out that the majority of voters don’t trust EUKIP, which considering the fiasco in Europe EUKIP should be picking votes by the shed load.

        Horsham District – Itchingfield, Slinfold and Warnham: C 557, Lib Dem 320, Ukip 173, Green 65, Lab 60.

      Cameron would rather see labour win an election, than keep his own promise to his own party.

      If you must blame anyone, Blame the man who was GIVEN the power to kill off UKIP, by UKIP themselves, and instead rejected that, broke his own promise and lost a majority! That was Cameron.

            Now answer the question… When I as a devoted and LOYAL tory for so many years, pounding the streets in 1997 – 1995 to campaign and fight Blairite policies, WHY THE FUCK should I support a conservative party which has now EMBRACED most of them?

            HOW can I vote for change, when NONE of the main Parliamentary parties are offering any change at all?

            How many times does Cameron have to bow down and suck on Clegg’s cock, before you blind tories realise you have been taken for a fucking ride and you are being laughed at by the piss taking Blairite third way traitors who suck EU cock every day?

            Why should I vote for a tory party led by a man who would rather see labour win an election, than give the people the referendum that they DO want?

            Why should I vote for a tory party offering EXACTLY THE SAME policies on defence, immigration, divisive political correctness, law and order, Climate and Energy, tax & spend,(to 1% difference) and so many other areas as LABOUR and LIBERALS?

            How can I vote FOR lower immigration? Local and national democracy delivered via referenda? A single fair rate of tax for everyone? Scrapping the Human Rights Act ad replacing it with a common sense Bill of Rights? Scrapping ACTA? reducing the size of the state? and so so so many other policies I would love to see? HOW?

            The tories are NOT going to do any of the above, They will continue implementing Blairite policies and sucking EU cock! So WHY should I vote for them?

      When the supporters of the three main Parliamentary parties have to resort to ad Hominem attacks as above, you know that they cannot engage you on the issues, because they know that UKIP’s actual policies are so good!

      So long as they call me a nutter, I know I am following the right party. Once they debate me on flat tax rate, local and national democracy delivered through referenda, Treating convicted criminals like criminals and not like respectable law abiding citizens, and treating respectable law abiding citizens like potential terrorists, getting our Fisheries back, getting our Farmers working efficiently under UK rules, Getting opportunities for all pupils based solely on ability through grammar schools, reducing immigration, promoting British industry, manufacturing, and businesses aggressively all over the world, and rational evidence based climate and energy policies, and so on…. Then I’ll begin to wonder if there is a rational alternative.

      The LAST thing tories actually want to tackle UKIP on are our actual policies, because then, self-respecting tories will have to defend “lefty social democratic” policies, instead of common sense policies.

      Far easier for them to hurl childish and palpably false insults instead, as labour were forced to do at the end of their 13 years of catastrophic misrule.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
