Who is Britain’s Third Party?

The LibDems collected not far off ten times what UKIP managed in Q3 donations. The whole ‘new third party’ dogma gleefully pushed by Farage’s team following last week’s by-election results was good for a laugh but it’s time to get real. Money talks, and the truth is they are still a long way behind…

    You sure Abu?

    If UKIP were anywhere near government, your hairy arse would have been long gone.
    Stick with the LabLibCon trick, they give you lots of free money, a mansion becoming of someone of your social standing, 24/7 police guards and fawn to the EU, who tell them what they can or can’t do with you.

    Big companies and rich investors are pro Europe, so can be a good fit for Libdems. Most of the rich and powerful establishment have no time for an anti EU party so UKIP will have to rely on the little voters.

    The smart money is on the yellows says:

    Well given the current political situation where there are no real differences between the so called Tories and Labour the Liberals look set to be in government at the after the next election but no one can be sure if their partners will be red or blue.

    So if you are going to donate money in exchange for political influence then the yellows look like the best place to put it in and it won’t cost as much as a red or blue bung.

    It’s the corporates who benefit massively from EU legislation that squeezes out competition, who support pro-EU parties.
    The end users, the person on the street at the bottom, pay a huge price for the rigged markets, that the subsidy junkie corporations demand in their quid pro quo, backsctratching arrangements with the corrupt EU.

    Little wonder they pour their ill gotten gains back into a system, that enables their wholesale theft from the public purse.

    The LibDem’s taking have, they boasted, increased vastly since they became part of government. Since their popularity plummeted this can only be because donors believe, presumably correctly, that they are buying political power.

    Put it the other way round – the fact that we are clearly the electorally more popular party despite not getting the backhanders, show a far greater underlyinmg strength.

    UKIP third at Corby with over 14% of the vote and the Limp-Dems loosing their deposit. Cameron’s arrogance has torpedoed ANY chance of a Tory victory for at least a decade it’s time he went. Ferage must be pissing himself with laughter for in spite of the deliberate efforts by the media to ignore or ridicule UKIP they are not only stitching up the Tories but are making the Liberals look as popular as a fart in a space suit he’s got both parties now on the ropes and it serves them right
    If the electorate do not get a binding in/out referendum before the next general election the Tory party is toast. Look at the results of the recent election in Maidenhead, Tories gone Liberal in massive loss of votes to UKIP. In 2013 this Tory government will allow unfettered access to Rumanians and Bulgarians who will automatically be entitled to benefits, free health care, free education, housing and jobs. Meanwhile we have more than a million unemployed and are under funding the NHS and closing old folks homes. If a political party was ever contemplating political suicide today’s Tories are setting a benchmark. You couldn’t make it up
    Just think about this, UKIP only really came to the fore after Brown signed the Lisbon treaty. However in spite of the fact that the Tories are the most established political party in the UK and both they and the Liblabs have far more financial support and better structured organisations the Corby results are significant for the following reasons

    UKIP had never fielded a candidate in Corby before and from a standing start took 14% of the popular vote. This was more than half of the 26% won by the Tories and almost 4 times the votes won by the Libdems who in spite of their cash and organisation lost their deposit. This UKIP result is breathtaking under the circumstances and only an idiot would fail to see their potential for clearly cash does not necessarily convert into votes

    Vote UKIP YIPEEEE!

    Money talks; it says “Corruption”.

    The Lib Dems are in Government and are in a far better position to implement “Suggestions” backed by donations than are UKIP who have no MPs.

    What would be more telling is the number of donors for each party; I suspect that UKIP has hundreds of small ones and the Lib Dems 5-10 big ones.

    I don’t believe any donor is supporting the Lib Dems for anything other than short term influence in this Government.

    global looting is in. having said that it looks like the last days of the russian communist system and we saw something similar.

    the future belongs to global oligarchs now. however, all the pre ’08 energy is protected, when baddies took advantage of the less bad.
    if the establishment stay on the right side of public opinion then their pre ’08 vices are protected….but regardless of what they do everything did change on 1.1.08.

    Number of MPs:
    UKIP: None
    Lib Dems: 57

    Number of Councillors:
    UKIP: 26
    Lib Dems: 2,670

    and the Third Party is …….Lib Dems!

    Let’s “get real” – despite having only a fraction of the funding of the Lib Dems, UKIP are still polling at or above the level of the Lib Dems and comprehensively beat them in the PCC elections and the Corby by-election. Now imagine what UKIP could do with just half of the funding of the Lib Dems (who are also part-funded by the taxpayer, remember).

    i suspect the “a vote for UKIP is a vote for LAB/CON/LIB*” (*delete as applicable)
    is really a reverse psych exercise played by all sides.

    Donating money for political influence has become an art form here in Portsmouth. Handycock’s boys have been most generous in their contributions and have done rather well with their planning consents and a blind eye to building regulations. As a consequence Handy himself became the third highest contributor to the Liberal Democrats and his council colleagues (under a variety of (declared) names) have contributed over £52,000 locally.

    Cameron looking for face-saving miniscule tweaks to the EU budget so he can come back home looking as if he accomplished something.
    Well I keep posting this because it will come true shortly,
    Cameron WILL capitulate on the EU budget and British tax payers WILL stump up even more cash to the EU, There will of course be lots of posturing to give the impression that Cameron is dictating terms but its all bluster so dont be fooled.
    Cameron has claimed that Villans will NOT get the vote but he is allready talking of a fudge and some convicts WILL get the vote, so its even more bluster. His ploy is to throw the issue into the long grass instead of telling the ECHR to get stuffed
    Cameron will soon promise a referendum on the EU AFTER the next election and may well promise to put it into law. But there will be several caviates based on spurious renegotiations that will eventually deny an in/out referendum so do not fall for it.
    Cameron is a dyed in the wool Europhile and whilst his Eton cabal run the Tory party you will NEVER get out of the EU. And we can now look forward to vast numbers of immigrants from Rumania and Bulgaria who wil be entitled to benefits, housing, education and health care all at our expense.

    So if the Glib Dumbs collected ten times what UKIP did that means they collected £620,000 which is more than the figure shown for the Tories
    So on that reconing the Glibs are more popular than the Tories because more people want to throw their money at them ?
    And why are Labours figures not there in the comparison ?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
