      before that little incident not many had heard or cared who Farage was, unless they heard of him surviving a plane crash. If Farage does finally make it on UK government scene, he will have to be a bit more than a pain in the butt to the tories, especially if he asprires to government, and some real policies apart from pulling out of the EU, also who are the others in his party would be able to do high office in government, and who are they, UKIP is not just a one man band is it

          The amateur way in which UKIP has been recently demonised as racist bigots with the Rotheram foster care incident is embarrassing
          How many labour members foster kids from Iraq, Arghanistan, Kosovo etc?, presumably it’s ok for them to look after children despite their support for a party that wanted to bomb these children into oblivion.

          • jean shaw says:

            Yes but they are politicians who have beliefs and principles . Why otherwise would you join a Party which for the first 10 years of its existence had no chance of power , was ignored and laughed at. The Camerons, Millibands and Cleggs are politicians who regard it as a career and in order to advance in that career will amend their principles as necessary

            i’m muttering UKIP every time someone complains about any of the main 3, so regularly if i shouted i’d lose my voice
            (shouting achieves nothing anyway just watch parliament)

            i also think any “a vote for UKIP is a vote for [insert opposite view to your own here]”

      Believe me, it will never happen in the UK, never!

        If in 1600 you had told an Englishman by the middle of century the English would have no king and indeed that the English had killed their king he wouldn’t have believed you.

        In 1919 nobody would have believed that the world would be plunged into a second war within 2 decades.

        In 1985 we leave in fear of the Four Minute Warning and no one would have thought that the Cold War would be over within 5 years.

        What are you dragging
        Salmond into the Ukip

        first minister for Scotland in
        a devolved parliament. It has
        absolutely fuck all to do with
        Ukip. Unlike Farage, Salmond
        is well ahead in the polls for
        1st Minister but I doubt he
        will win Indepedence. Farage
        on the other hand is scraping
        by with the lib dumb student
        protest votes and the
        disgruntled euro sceptic tories
        protest votes. Wow.
        Meaningless tosh. Most
        people can see through
        Farage. He is no different
        from any other politician.
        Farage has more chance of
        winning the Eurovision Song
        Contest than winning a
        majority at the next election.
        I hope Cameron totally stuffs
        Farage by calling for an in/
        out referendum. Then
        Cameron may get the majority
        he needs to win the next

    Police have acknowledged for the first time that the late politician Sir Cyril Smith sexually and physically abused young boys in the 1960s. Smith, who was elected to Parliament in 1972, was dogged by rumours of abuse throughout his career but charges were never brought.

    But both Greater Manchester Police and the Crown Prosecution Service have now said that if Smith had been accused today he would be charged and prosecuted.

    Assistant Chief Constable Steve Heywood said: “We are now in a position to say that on three separate occasions, files were passed to first the Director of Public Prosecutions and then the CPS containing details of abuse committed by Smith, but on each occasion no prosecution was pursued.

    And of course unemployment in Greece, Portugal and Spain is a price well worth paying just to save the Euro and the Germans face(and to get back of course all the money they lent them to buy their cars).

    Even the left don’t seem to bother now about unemployment.

    In order to get it over with even more quickly, let’s hope unemployment in those countries goes up even further. The rich and middle classes won’t care.

    What are you dragging Salmond into the Ukip nonsense for?. He was voted first minister for Scotland in a devolved parliament. It has absolutely fuck all to do with Ukip. Unlike Farage, Salmond is well ahead in the polls for 1st Minister but I doubt he will win Indepedence. Farage on the other hand is scraping by with the lib dumb student protest votes and the disgruntled euro sceptic tories protest votes. Wow. Meaningless tosh. Most people can see through Farage. He is no different from any other politician. Farage has more chance of winning the Eurovision Song Contest than winning a majority at the next election.
    I hope Cameron totally stuffs Farage by calling for an in/out referendum. Then Cameron may get the majority he needs to win the next election.

      Panic in the shires says:

      It’s NOT about winning the UK General Election …stupid !!! It’s about positioning yourself and party to make progress towards getting a majority share of the vote in the 2014 European Elections and in the interim keeping the pressure on on ALL mainstream parties but especially Cameron and the Tories to concede an in/out referendum and in that UKIP strategy is working as is evidenced by the panic that is starting spread within CCHQ and Cameron starting to make noises about repatriating powers from EU and a new settlement. The pressure will continue to build over next 30 months. Both the tory party and UKIP know that they can do enough to deprive the Tories of any chance of winning an overall majority. In 2010 UKIP cost the Tories at least 20 seats. What do you think the effect will be in 2015 with UKIP’s higher profile and coming off the back of a successful 2014 European Election ? No wonder CCHQ is starting to panic

        Canada didn’t have a credit bubble, and ran a government surplus all through the credit crunch. As a result, their banks are just fine, as they weren’t forced out of the borrowing market by their overspending government – unlike a few we could mention, and regrettably including the era of Brown incompetence.

    The problem with the UKIP having more policies than just getting out of the EU is that some of them are nutty, like their pro smoking stance. Are they being finance by the tobacco industry? Or is Farage a smoker who wants to impose his poison on the rest of us?


  59. 270

    In public life it’s become fashionable to want our leaders to be straight talking conviction types, bring on Thatcher and the other fundamentalist. The ire of the right and hard left is reserved for flip-floppers who want to skipper the ship but aren’t interested in the course – out with Blair, Wilson, Heath, Obama and all. I can support this view, but only to some degree as rigidly held views can be very damaging, witness George W on Iraq, Maggie and the poll tax and Charles 1 on everything.

    The risk of damage is heightened when this conviction is focused on a single issue. UKIP presents us with a case in point. The Party has a well-defined course and probably good convictions. The problem is that by simplifying the problems we face into a single issue they provide a focus for people who are too dull to grapple with the complexity of our Island’s challenges. UKIP provide a home and voice for intellectually lazy people who, apart from getting the Europe issue wrong, are able to command a sizable share of voice on issues where they should have no credible opinion. We are treated to Nige on Question Time answering questions on Schooling and Health – this makes me ill. I feel patronised by the existence of this single issue Party and irritated that their carping and scratching around on the fringes of what is important, is likely to make good debate and decision making more difficult.

    So what to do? Well, its over to you Dave, you need to step up and put them out of their misery, if you don’t it’s quite possible that Miliband will, as he is proving to be one of the most opportunistic politicians in living memory. You don’t need to do a deal with UKIP, you just need to have a clear and well executed plan for our continued membership of the EU on improved terms.

For heaven’s sake, the man is like a circus acrobat! He’s done so many backflips it’s painful to watch. He’s no better than Brown and as gullible as a first year schoolkid. So many of his chosen team have either screwed up, simply buggered off, or resigned. What a leader!
