Graham Thorpe Comes Out to Bat for UKIP

England cricket legend Graham Thorpe, capped a hundred times, isn’t convinced by his fellow countrymen Darren Gough and Andrew Strauss’ support for the Tories. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun, Thorpe recently signed a fan’s England shirt “UKIP all the way!” A new kind of barmy army for Graham.

And it turns out Nick v Nigel is just the first round. UKIP will be parking their tanks on Clegg’s front lawn by holding their party conference next year smack bang in the middle of his Sheffield constituency. Popcorn…

      Thorpe lost his job to an immigrant (Pieterson) who himself was a victim of racial discrmination.

        Thorpe was past his best.

        It was a young up and coming England born cricketer who lost his place to Pieterson.

      Boycott was the one who was done for knocking his wife around. Apparently Thorpe’s nickname was shagger when he was away on tour. A bit of a womaniser by all accounts.

          Not that any other party currently has a manifesto. As I recall they ALL abandoned theirs within days of the last general election.

          • The Great British Public says:

            Voters should never say they want;

            Out of the EU, to change our relationship with the EU, to regain control of UK’s immigration rules, to decide which foreign terrorists and criminals should be chucked out, or decide if the UK can dredge its own rivers…..

            and then say they want to vote Conservative.

            That’s like a man saying he’s straight and then shagging his brother.

            So both Labour and UKIP don’t recognise England,Scotland,Wales & Northern Ireland as nations in their own right?

    ‘Executive summary’:

    - Majority of victims in age range: 10-15 yrs old
    - Many more women have come forward than men in ratio: 87:20
    - Recorded offences indicate most active: 1968 thru 1976
    - 1977, 1990 and 2006 recorded offences appear to be exclusively at BBC Television centre

      Nigel Farage for Prime Minister
      This is what he said:

      “I am the Tory Party’s Worst Nightmare. I am a White, Tax-Paying, God fearing English man. I am a hard working Brit and I work long hours to earn a living.

      I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don’t push it on others.

      I believe in British products and buy them whenever I can.

      I believe the money I make belongs to me and not to some governmental functionary, to share with others who don’t work!

      I think owning a home doesn’t make you a capitalist; it makes you a smart Brit.

      I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and
      does not entitle you to anything. Get over it. Join in with the majority!

      I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other language option.

      I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

      My heroes are fellow Brits like Freddy Flintoff and Winston Churchill and I know I’ve missed a few thousand!!!!!

      I don’t hate the rich. What I hate is the way they always manage to avoid paying proper taxes. I don’t pity the poor, I just hate the way they are always moaning that they are hard done by!!

      I know wrestling is fake and I don’t waste my time watching or arguing about it.

      I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

      This is ENGLAND…..We like it the way it is and even more so the way it was…so stop trying to change it to look like some other socialist country!

      If you were born or legally migrated here and don’t like it… you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the House of Commons, the seat of our biggest problems.

      I want to know where the “Do Gooders” get their money from, and why are they always part of the problem and not the solution? Can I get an AMEN on that one?

      I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you’re breaking the law, regardless of what race, colour or creed you are.
      And, no, I don’t mind having my face shown on my d**ving licence. I think it’s good….

      I dislike those people trying to guilt me into making ‘donations’ to their cause….Get a job and support yourself and your family!

      I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

      I believe the Union Jack flag should be allowed to be flown anywhere in the United Kingdom !

      If this makes me a BAD Brit, then yes, I’m a BAD Brit. If you are a BAD Brit too, please forward this to everyone you know….

      We want our country back! My Country…..

      My great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Boer War. My grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in World Wars 1&2. I watched as my friends died in Sierra Leone Bosnia, & Desert Storm. Our sons and daughters watched & bled as their friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq . None of them died for the Afghanistan and Iraq Flag. Every Briton died for the British flag.

      At one high school, foreign students raised a Middle East flag on a school flag pole. British students took it down. Guess who was expelled… the students who took it down .

      West London high school students were sent home, because they wore T-shirts with the Union Jack flag printed on them.

      What is going on?? What idiots do we have in authority?? Enough is enough.

      This message needs to be viewed by every Brit; and every Briton needs to stand up for Britain . We’ve bent over to appease the Brit-haters long enough. I’m taking a stand.

      I’m standing up because of the millions who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the British flag.

      And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message. IT IS NOT !

      Britons, stop giving away Your RIGHTS !

      THIS IS OUR COUNTRY !

      This statement DOES NOT mean I’m against immigration !

      YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

      1. Get a sponsor !
      2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past!
      3. Live by OUR rules ! Dress as we Britons Do
      4. Get a job !
      5. Pay YOUR Taxes !
      6. No Social Security until you have earned it and paid for it !
      7. Find a place to lay your head !

      If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !

      We’ve gone so far the other way… bent over backwards not to offend anyone.

      WAKE UP BRITAIN ! ! !

      I hope this offends all illegal aliens.

      If you do not Pass this on, may your fingers cramp !

      Made in BRITAIN & DAMN PROUD OF IT!!!!!”
      AMEN”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
