Time to Bring Farage Home

The Cameroons believe down to their DNA that a governing majority is to be found at the centre of politics.  Last night where UKIP stood they polled 14% on average, the BBC calculating that for every 10% UKIP polls, the Tories lose 5% of their support. UKIP is clearly gaining traction as more than just a Euro-election voting option. The Cameroons kid themselves that they can be more credibly centrist and win more votes from the centre party without losing their right-of-centre base.

Last night Baroness Warsi smeared UKIP by associating them with the BNP. Their own activists don’t believe it, it is noticeable just how many activists the Conservative youth and students wings are haemorrhaging to UKIP.  This decade long splintering of the right-of-centre vote is madness, a huge opportunity for sanity is opening up ahead of the next election, one which it seems even Lord Mandelson is willing to embrace. He has briefed The Sun this morning:

“I believe a referendum on this will be necessary because parties can’t reconcile their own differences and come to a final conclusion. A referendum would be a healthy means of re-establishing a consensus among Britons about Britain’s place in the world and role Europe should play in that.”

An In/Out referendum is a chance to settle the Europe question for generations and re-unite the right-of-centre majority in Britain. UKIP and the Tories would be campaigning on the same platform. Farage and most of UKIP would in those circumstances come back into the fold, the Conservatives would then have their best shot at winning a majority in decades. Before the 2015 general election David Cameron needs once more to make a  “big, open, comprehensive offer” and secure his place in history by winning an In/Out referendum. Nigel Farage doesn’t want to be in Brussels a day longer than he has to be, it is time to bring him home…

        Cameron has already talking of a conservative led government after the next election. He has also said that he will never be in a coalition with UKIP. He would rather lead a left of centre coalition, than a conservative government.

        He has also said that he is in favour of remaining INSIDE the EU and has done NOTHING to block further EU integration. The EU referendum lock is designed to lock us OUT of having a referendum.

        Come on tories, how much longer must Cameron piss on your boots before you realise that it is not raining?

        UKIP believes in merging income tax and national insurance into a flat rate income tax to greatly simplify our tax code, which currently stands at over 11,000 pages.

        At the last election we opted to merge 20% basic income tax with 11% national insurance to create a 31% flat tax on all earned incomes over £11,500. As a tax cut for all, with a higher threshold, it would also take the poorest paid out of income tax altogether.

        It would also mean abolishing the existing 40% and 50% income tax brackets, the latter actually costing the economy rather than taking in revenue.

        For employers, UKIP aims to abolish employers’ national insurance across a parliament to end the tax on jobs. This will undoubtedly boost employment and simplify the process of employing people.

Lib/Lab/Con will all endorse staying in, the bolshevik brosdcasting corp, all the papers, every fucking sleb that can be pushed forward or dug up. Those on benefit will be told that leaving the EU will put their benefits in peril, in fact everybody will be told anything they value will be endangered by being shot of the Euroscum. Remeber 1975?. Alright too much dirty water has gone under the bridge for the enemy to pretend the EU does not intend to be a superstate but lie after lie will be marshalled against freedom from eurotyranny.The case for getting out will be suppressed as far as they can.

      Goodbye Cameron
      The election has now made it quite clear that the Tories will never again have an overall majority in the House of Commons. The public have seen Cameron make numerous promises to hold a referendum on the EU only to see him call a three-line whip against it when the House of Commons debated the issue earlier.
      The public no longer trust him or the Tories and many have now decided to vote UKIP. The loss of Tory support to UKIP undermines the Tories in future marginal seats and though there may well be some who will return to the Tories at the next general election a significant number will no longer vote Tory.
      Any further promises by the Tories to hold a referendum will not alter this situation for few would believe that the Tories would honour a result that may well call for a total withdrawal.
      Furthermore the handing of billions to the IMF to help bale out the EURO (another broken promise) and the handing of money to aid nations that fund their own space programs or buy French aircraft has really took the biscuit. Not to mention the utter spineless refusal to deport terrorists for fear of upsetting the court of human rights. All this plus the Granny-tax the Pasty-tax and 5p off the top tax rate whilst we have mass unemployment verges on political suicide to any sane politician. I for one will never vote for the LIBLABCON cabal ever again.
      So it’s goodbye Cameron and goodbye to any hope of a centre right government any time soon.

      “Looking forward to Boris repelling Labour’s march on the capital.”

      Boris is embracing conservatism and is rightly unrepentant and unapologetic in his conservatism and is WINNING because of it.

      Cameron is LOSING because he is running away from conservatism. The lefties will never ever vote for what they still perceive as “baby eating tories” so Cameron’s appeal to the left will never bear fruit. He is also losing far more support on the right because of his left liberal instincts.

      Notice that when Cameron appeared to be a Eurosceptic right winger in 2009 he had a 24 point lead in the polls. Now the tories have a 12 point deficit.

      The further left they went since 2009, the worse they have done, leading to a massive deficit to that obnoxious prick Ed Miliband! There has been a 36 point swing from conservative to labour in the opinion polls since 2009 and all through that time Cameron has been moving further and further to the left! This cannot possibly be put down to Miliband having more appeal and winning back labour voters, because Miliband still has lower ratings than Cameron.

      The middle ground of politics in Notting Hill and BBC Television Centre may be where Blair was. In the country at large? The middle ground is much closer now to where Enoch Powell was.

    Spot on article but Cameron will not do this because of the colossal brigade of Sir Humph’s and carpet baggers sucking at the Brussel teat, left behind by Labour, currently employed by the state to integrate us into the European wet dream superstate.
    At best a watered down version would probably be “in Europe but not ruled by Europe” but the problem with that is the history tells us that rules are ignored, bent or structured obliquely to steal or neuter all of the functions that make us a state. A classic example of this is the ECHR which in any other century would have had it’s supporters tried for Treason.
    There is in my opinion only one referendum that matters “In or Out”

      The EU roadmap has NO option for “this far and no further”. The speed of integration can be slowed down from the inside, but it cannot be halted. The ONLY way to be able to choose to NOT be fully integrated into the corrupt, profoundly anti-democratic, economically incompetent EU, is to vote OUT.

      In or out are the only honest, realistic options. Giving people a vote on any third in-between option is profoundly dishonest, because the EU will NOT allow any other status. Full integration is mandatory according to the Lisbon Treaty.

    Hi,

    the tragedy is that after 20 years UKIP is running in 7th. position in terms of seats in England & Wales and still with not the slightest glimmer of hope of a Westminster seat on the horizon!

    Yes we need and want a referendum – YES the public wish to Leave-The-EU by a majority and yes a huge majority want to remove our political and economic control by the malign and corrupt EU.

    Sadly, just as when the traitor Heath signed the warrant for the death of these United Kingdoms and the new vassal status any current referendum on the subject would be similarly fiddled!

    I do NOT believe that the Leave-The-EU cause would win a referendum as the EU would pour huge amounts of OUR money into propaganda, spin and lies to ensure their Milch Cow staid in THEIR barn!

    Consider the undeniable FACT that The EU does not have a Democratic Defecit it has NO meaningful democracy, spends £Billions each year on propaganda and has the largest Civil Service in the world with armies of self serving unelected bureaucrats endlessly t6ightening the rachets of strangulation of ‘Self Determination’ of its vassal regions and enthralled peoples.

    An IN/OUT referendum would be lost by the people who clearly want to Leave-The-EU – The EU has NO democratic mandate and openly advocates a ‘Post Democratic style of governance’!

    Let us not be confused – The EU is NOT our enemy, The EU has published every step of the way in its social engineering experiment openly stating its aim to be an Empire of voluntary member regions (formerly independent states!).

    OUR ENEMY is without a doubt OUR enemy within the armies of Civil Servants who now work for tyhe EU implementing EU diktat, the banks working to control our economy for allien gain. The water companies with their scares and crisese which are increasingly foreign owned, our power industry which is also mainly foreign owned. Now we are tendering our roads having lost our fisheries to allien control – when last did a credible politician of any gravitas or stature stand up for the peoples of these United Kingdoms – don’t say Thatcher who traded off our CAP income for a showy settlement at Bruges and never once voted to block EU legislation.

    When last did we have a British politician acting in Britain’s interests?

    Yes Farage puts up a good show but as a showman he may well be popular but one need only look at the number of seats won to realise entertainers and showmen carry no weight!

    Of the 4,987 seats up for election yesterday so far UKIP have 7!

    With one gain so far UKIP remind us that one swallow does not a summer make and although Galloway described his result as ‘The Bradford Spring’ – surely no one can see 7 seats won so far as ‘A UKIP Spring’ or an endorsement of Farage and his unprofessional and largely divisive leadership of HIS party!

    I do however appreciate that discontent as the Tory Party may be with Cameron & his set The Tories have the same plight as Labour lacking any credible alternative to a hugely uncredible leader!

    Then even if you got past that, if say Farage got elected as PM, Merkel would have him arrested and her own puppet government installed (voted through by Westminster of course who so long as they keep their ipads and expenses will do as told) within 48 hours.

    You can’t change the system, it’s a fact of life. The only hope is that the Tory right grow a set and start kicking Cameron to death.

    If Tim Montgomery is to be believed that will start to happen over the next few days and weeks.

    I would normally vote Conservative but voted UKIP yesterday. Not because of any love of UKIP, some of the postings you see on here and on the Daily Mail site from UKIP activists are not my cup of tea. However, I think it is time to call it a day on the Euro Socialist experiment but more importantly I don’t think George Osbourne is a Conservative; his recent budget and subsequent comments were those of a full blown socialist. He needs to sort out which party he supports and soon. I won’t be giving them any more money any time soon nor supporting them.

        Well I did do economics at university but that was some time ago. Income Tax is only one tax out of a plethora. I was more concerned his attitude that anyone who had money or made money had done so at the expense of the public exchequer. Some of comments almost explicitly stated that anyone who wanted to keep their own money was a thief. His raising of stamp duty on purchases of property valued at over £2m was rank theft as was his announcement that he would levy stamp duty at 15% on property purchases via limited companies. I am not personally affected by either but nonetheless I think both measures appalling and counter-productive. With regards to reducing the rate of Income Tax from 50% to 45% he simultaneously announced a limiting of uncapped reliefs to £50k or 25% income. So he has limited the availability of of statutory reliefs. This supposedly in the name of increasing he tax take. If he applied economic theory and tax theory he should know these measure are contrary to good governance. If he really wants to increase the tax take he should reduce rates and eliminate reliefs and allowances. If you need to some help with economic theory and the basic notions of fair taxation I can recommend some reading.

    In a decade’s or so time when the history of the UK in the late 20th century is written the EU decision will probably be framed as HMG worst mistake. We gave up close relations with countries that had resources and provided us with markets and

      I believe Boris is/was 20-1 on to win. If Ken is/was on the reciprocal of those odds ie 20 – 1 or even 10 – 1 against then I suggest that is/was a much better value bet.

    Well at least Guido reveals his true colours – although, if imposed during this age of austerity, civil unrest would be the only outcome of a hardline right-of -centre government.
    I’m afraid UKIP doesn’t stand much chance of gaining more than a few seats in 2015 after AV was rejected in a referendum a year ago tomorrow.
    The ‘No’ campaign’s machinations, funded for the most part by Conservative donors, destroyed the chance of this modest reform which would have encouraged many more people to vote for their real preference.

    The dreadful ‘Yes’ campaign’s refusal to engage with UKIP and Baroness Warsi’s mantra that (yes, you’ve guessed it) a vote for AV will let in the BNP, has ensured the continuation of the status quo until a more representative voting system for electing MPs is introduced.

    What is called the Centre Left is bigger than the Centre Right. In the UK around 55% to 60% of voters are basically social democratic and only about 40% to 45% are on the free-market centre right end of the political spectrum.

    The problem the centre left has had for the last 3 or 4 decades is that FPTP rewards the single biggest party, under FPTP it is not so much how many votes you get as how many more votes did you get than your nearest rival.

    For decades the entire centre right were united round the Conservative Party while the left were pretty messed up, the Labour Party were very extreme for a while when Labour had the militant tendency and the voters were divided between Labour, Liberals and the nationalists in Scotland and Wales who are also on the centre left.

    Now this is changing, the right is becoming split between UKIP and the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats will lose a lot of voters to Labour. In Scotland Labour might not recover but the Tories won’t pick up the old seats that the Conservatives used to have their under Thatcher and Major.
