Do UKIP Really Believe in Straight Talking?

Sponsored post

Nigel Farage presents UKIP as the “straight talking” party, but do they really talk as much sense as they make out? The Spin Alley investigates.

      Still no by-election victory for Farage and time is running out. Ukip are just about worth a punt in Labour strongholds where none of the others have a chance. Otherwise, it’s best just to vote for whoever is most likely to stop the Labour candidate.

      Of course, the euro elections are a different kettle of fish entirely.

        Let me get this straight Mr Nobody.

        The Tories have been running this country on and off for fecking years upon years and still only managed third.

        UKIP are so young that they have no history, yet their time is running out because they beat the Tories, but did not win.

        Give your head a wobble you sheep’s vagina.

      THE TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGING

      Come all the electorate throughout the UK
      It’s time to ignore what the LIBLABCON say
      Lets face it these parties have all had their day
      Our politics need rearranging
      So go out and vote UKIP lets sweep them away
      For the times they are a changing

      Not one of them listens to our point of view
      They’d sooner give our cash to the EU
      So lets kick them out and try something new
      We can’t afford this lot remaining
      Political rethink is long overdue
      For the times they are a changing

      They lied about Lisbon and promised a vote
      There all Europhiles and in the same boat
      Their treachery just bring a lump to my throat
      As each other they just keep blaming
      So send them a message and let them take note
      That the times they are a changing

      We will no longer tolerate lies being told
      Tax breaks for the rich but more tax for the old
      Ruled from the EU and our birthrights sold
      They ignore us when we are complaining
      If we all vote UKIP their out in the cold
      For the times they all need changing

      Tory Voting Song

      Jolly voting weather
      We are all europhiles
      We’re very clever
      And lie to you all the while
      You fell for our promise especially the CAST IRON trick
      We’re all from Eton, and you lot are all too thick.

      If you think I’ll claim back powers,
      You haven’t got a clue
      We’ll hand the UK to Merkle,
      There is nothing that you can do
      No referendums Changes through on the nod
      I am the PM and I’m a duplicitous sod

      As for immigration
      I know it gets on your tits
      I will flood the nation
      And pay their benefits
      I am from Eton; I am one of the ruling class
      If you don’t like it, you can just kiss my ****

Even the BBC has to give UKIP airtime now as none of the social democrat Establishment parties have any ideas. Unless you count postal votes of gay marriage.

    It is an example of what happens when you elect a leader devoid of principles. Cameron has no moral strength from which to govern.

    If he was a true centrist ‘Cameroon’, then he’d tell the backbenchers to go fuck themselves. It may cause trouble in his own party, but he’d have the respect of the electorate. If he was a true Tory rightwinger, he’d stop trying to pander to the centre votes.

    As it is, he’s a man who tries to be all things to all people. All at once ‘hug a husky’ and ‘cut the green crap’. It doesn’t work. He’s a piss-poor excuse for a leader, and the value of his showmanship is rapidly diminishing.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
