Play #Newsnight KEN-GO!

Tonight Newsnight is hosting a four-way debate – with the BBC giving the Greens the fourth seat despite UKIP currently polling higher. During the debate Ken will no doubt make his usual magic money promises and claim that Boris plans to kill all London’s first born sons. So, to make it easy for you to keep track of Ken’s unfounded claims during the debate, the NotKenAgain.com website has created a positive fun little game they’re calling KEN-GO.

Download the KEN-GO scorecard, fill it out during the Newsnight debate and Tweetpic a picture of your completed scorecard to @NotKenAgain to win a signed T-shirt…

    It’s not just polling higher, it’s polling much higher in general – look at all the Westminster by-elections results; Greens nowhere to be seen. Look at local elections – Greens beat UKIP very rarely. The reason is clear – Greens are a one-issue left wing anti-capitalist party that supports EU integration almost as passionately as the LibDems (who UKIP often beat in local by-elections and sometimes in the Westminster ones).

    BBC and the London Evening Standard appear to devise ever more complicated formulae to include Greens but exclude UKIP – why might that be?

            Possibly Sian Berry again… I used to work with her (not politically!) and she’s quite a decent (but deluded) individual.

            It’s outrageous of the BBC to give them airtime over UKIP’s Paul Nutall who made such an excellent job of his appearance on QT a few weeks ago. Perhaps that’s the problem… he dominated the panel and the EU got frit.

    Why shouldn’t the Greens have the fourth seat tonight? I don’t expect fair from Guido’s site but they did gain over three times as many seats as UKIP in the last London mayoral election.
    Blame the present voting system for what happened to UKIP’s representation nationally, though: zero MPs for twice the Green vote. The same will probably happen again in 2015 because of AV’s defeat last year.

      There are three possible explanations:

      1) The UKIP name doesn’t actually appear on the ballot as they’ve decided their best chance is to pretend their candidate is really an independent;
      2) In 2008 their vote share actually began after the decimal point;
      3) A vast left wing conspiracy.

      Obviously the consensus here seems to be 3

      Presumably your inability to count matches your overall stupidity level. Here are some facts,

      General Election 2010,

      UKIP: 919, 470 votes.

      Green: 265,243 votes.

      Of course at the last London mayoral elections, precisely the same tactic was adopted by the BBC and MSM. At virtually every instance UKIP were completely ignored as if they were not participating and of course the bastion of fair play, honesty and integrity, the BBC, presented the election as a four horse race between, Labour, Lib-Dim, Conservative and Green. Surprise, surprise.

This is done to make right wing ideas look as if they are somehow marginal and extreme, when in fact they are popular and mainstream. Though no doubt, the likes of the BBC etc, would sneer at them for being, frightfully populist.
