Back UKIP at Evens to Take 50 Seats

Guido Fawkes Paddy Power

The political establishment is gunning for UKIP, Ken Clarke calls them “clowns”, the newspapers are running front page anti-UKIP stories focusing on some of the oddballs who have attached themselves to the fast growing party. Will the all-party, all-papers attack on the anti-politics party halt UKIP’s progress against the media headwind? This morning on the BBC’s Today programme, John Humphreys claimed UKIP’s support came from taxi-drivers – we’ll find out on Friday if their support is a little more broadly based than the BBC makes out.

Over at the Paddy Power Blog, Guido makes the case for betting on UKIP taking more than 50 seats…

    OK – 50 clowns will be elected. They’re still clowns.

    Far more than 50 clowns will be elected. There are thousands of seats which will be also filled by the clowns from Labour, the Lib dems, the greens and the Tories

    May as well try something different and vote UKIP, they can’t be any worse.

    I suspect that the LibLabCon artists are watching UKIP from behind the sofa and through slits in their fingers. What surprises even me is that they are so stupid that they are unaware that gratuitous insults toward UKIP will make many more likely to vote for UKIP.

    I wouldn’t want to be John Humphreys when he is caught next in a downpour and needs a cab.

    People respect someone who has convictions even if they disagree with them says:

    Sometimes there is a seismic shift in the the politics of the nation…it happened in 1979 again in 1997 and perhaps this is another such moment who knows ? But one thing is certain the rise of UKIP (and the election of Labour in 2015 byy default despite nobody wanting them back)is the fault of Cameron no-one else. He could neutralise the UKIP threat easily, have policies that the electorate actually want and recover his supporters but he tells us that he can’t ….why ? Cos’ the LibDems won’t let him ! Pathetic. Thank God Mrs T didn’t feel like that in the mid 70’s and actually HAD convictions rather than listening to focus groups or the “wets” in her party

    Yep! like I said before the political/metropolitan chattering classes are sh^tting themselves. The amount of anti-UKIP propaganda pouring out of the TV and radio this last week or so, is clearly indicative of the fear that UKIP’s advance in the polls and in gaining wider public support, as engendered. I live in an area where, unfortunately, we will not get a vote this time, but I hope the voting public will use the opportunity to kick at least some of the arrogance and complacency out of the main parties.

    The easiest way to deal with UKIP would be to hold an in/out EU referrendum THIS parliament, control immigration, end a few nanny state policies like the smoking ban and generally offer some red-meat conservative tax cuts.

    But the Tories won’t so they’re doomed!

  27. 27
    Anonymous says:

    It may be true that most UKIP policies are rubbish but UKIP are absolutely correct about the overriding issues of the day.

    The EU is a destructive nightmare we must get out of.

    Mass immigration is and has always been a disaster. It is not enough to slow down the numbers arriving. It must be stopped and many already here sent back.

    The liblabcons are corrupt, in it only for themselves and their rich mates, and we must be rid of them.

    Such shifts are far rarer than people think. People like to feel they have lived through important events, but it is surprising how few political titans turn out to have made very much of difference. I can’t see Cameron’s achievements being on peoples’ lips in twenty years time, let alone in the next century.

    Maq­boul says:

    Yes, we should have elected a career politician as head of state. Before election such a person would never promise favours in return for votes nor, when in power, give favour to those who would reward his retirement.

    This is why a queen, born to the role, is such an outdated concept: she has nothing to be partisan about, no incentive to abuse nor any further need for self-aggrandisement.

    We blew it when we missed the opportunity to elect the straight kinda President Blairs. Imagine his impact on tourism for the country and the PR we’d gain overseas. Yes, we blew it alright.

    Perhaps Euan might consider the job one day?

    isn’t the same true of EUKIP? – Londoners may not feel themselves on the wrong end of the EU – quite the opposite

UKIP is the outlet many people have been waiting for. Should be fun

    Exit from EU but replace with a trade agreement
    Cut all green subsidy taxes – they distort the market and do nothing to save the enviroinment
    One off tax on all fuel companies ( circa 10 billion) they invest nothing and are bleeding us dry
    Re nationalsie all rail companies when franchises come to an end
    No need for HS2
    BBC licence fee capped at £100 and money divided between range of broadcasters

    If the behaviour of their MEPs are anything to go by, once elected they will just trough away more than the existing lot, and not give a damn.

    Those who have abstained from voting for years, those who have been let down for years by lying politicians who spout promises but never deliver, people from both sides of the political spectrum may mock UKiP but that only strengthens our resolve.
    I joined UKiP last week, money is tight for me but I wanted to put my money where my mouth was, first time in my life I have felt strongly enough about politics and the need to rescue this country from the grasp of the EU.

    And the Lib-Dems who entered cabinet in 2010 want us all to walk around with our trousers on backwards, hand over defence to the boy scouts, invite the whole of Afghanistan and Niger to come and live here on benefits, pay 2000% more for unworkable wind energy and eat more vegetables. They brought one intelligent policy to government–why can’t UKIP?

    You can’t trust the present members of HoC, & that’s a proven,so why not let
    “nigel and his band of third raters” have a try? At least we would be standing on our own two feet out of the control of Brussels.

    We will find out on Friday how much ,or little,fun will be available for our enjoyment.
    IMO even if the result is enough to frighten the gov’t with the message it conveys to them I don’t think it will get them to change course.

    It’s the BNP media witch-hunt all over again. Any minority party that has a chance of breaking the Lib/Lab/Con single party state gets hammered from all angles-so good reason to support UKIP then.

    People really do need to wake up and see this for what it is.

    As for Ken Clarke the man is a treacherous and disgraceful individual-who’s paying him this time?

    The smear campaign will do more harm than good for the tories and the bbc (they might not be colluding together, but they definitely both have their own smear campaigns against ukip).

    Cameron spends all his time trying to legalise gay marriage and trying to build windfarms, May spends all her time saying we can’t deport a terrorist because the EU won’t let us and there’s nothing we can do about it, Osborne spends all his time sticking to labour spending plans and allowing the economy to completely sink without trace.

    So, when ukip say that what the tories are doing is just plain stupid/wrong, then to any reasonable person what ukip says makes sense and is right, and when the tories/bbc then say that what makes sense and seems right to 99% of the public is a load of racist homophobic fascist balls, then that 99% of the public will say “fuck. you guys at the bbc/tory-party really are fucking lunatics, aren’t you? no way I’m ever voting tory again with those bonkers people in charge, I’ll vote for ukip instead even if labour get it because of it.”

    I’ve voted ukip by post instead of my normal tory vote; it means the libdems are more likely to get in, but I can’t bring myself to vote tory just to avoid the libdems from getting in when the tories are so fucking insane at the moment.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
