UKIP’s Phoney War

UKIP claim to have called the cops in after their head office was “bombarded” by “really nasty ‘hate’ phone calls” ahead of tonight’s debate. The party says “a group obviously working to a concerted plan” has subjected the old dears who man the phones at UKIP HQ to “clearly insane” abuse, and they have passed recordings of the “horrible messages” to the police. Things are so bad that they have had to install a system where all withheld numbers are automatically blocked. Nick Clegg did say he wanted to get more passionate…

    Clegg running scared.

    Perhaps Nick Clegg is trying for a Cleggxit

    Somebody should check the EU’s phone system – oh I forgot, nothing there is audited.

    still walking into darkness says:

    Why Guido do you not believe these calls were of such hatred and a threatening nature that the Police didn’t need to be contacted?
    If such calls were to the Con/Lib/Lab the army would probably be called out

    UKIP’s rise is going to get really ugly really quickly.

    And the multiculti lovies at the BBC will be putting on their best #innocentfaces as they stoke the fires with their usual biased editorial coverage.

    Sounds like the sort of behaviour Labour would get themselves involved in.

  8. 8
    CLegg has no policy says:

    Nick Harris, of the Guardian, said on Newsnight, more or less, that UKIP are filling the void because neither the Tories, Lib Dems or Labour have any meaningful policy for immigration.

  9. 9
    The BBC says:

    This only involves UKIP getting a bit of stick so we’re not interested.

    In other news, bedroom tax, poverty, privatised NHS, Miliband is wonderful….

    “Ermmm…there no Mehdi here..erm…me Chinese laundry..you like wash now..erm…(click)”

  29. 29
    jgm2 says:

    It’s counter productive though. If the old duffers and dears in their twin-sets are getting abusive calls from UAF and ‘Liberals calling them fascists and racists and whatever else then that will only further enrage the middle class voters.

    Remember UKIP aren’t marching in the streets burning Korans or throwing bins through curry house windows. They’re playing the game like the SNP.

    The bedwetters must be soiling their pants at the thought of UKIP which is why they’ve mobilised their forces. I fear that Nigel won’t get the living of a dog on the BBC tonight. In the past I’d have thought the BBC would give Farage air-time just to make things difficult for the Tories but now it’s becoming obvious that he’s not just taking Tory votes but Labour and Liberal votes then he’s an enemy of the BBC in his own right. I expect him to be eviscerated by Dimbleby and the wildly partisan ‘representative’ audience.

    N*ick Gr*if*fin all over again.

    Because of the unique way we’re funded. By the EU for starters.

    The Rule of Brussels, the media monopoly of the BBC and the Westminster Gravy Train must not be jeopardised. Therefore, every dirty trick and tactic must be used against UKIP in order to maintain the status quo. Can’t have the plebs messing everything up, can we? What do they think this is, a democracy?

    No. The BBC still has this aura of ‘impartiality’ so if theBBC beams pictures of a ‘representative’ audience booing and shouting down Farage then voters will question themselves rather than recognising a stitch-up.

    It’s the same tactic Blair used when he was in opposition. Traveling everywhere with two busloads of ‘spontaneous support’. All carefully filmed by the BBC to make it look like literally thousands of people would stop whatever they were doing, leave their shops, their factories and their homes to greet the messiah in the street. Voters see that day-in, day-out on TV and begin to think perhaps his is ‘the one’.

    Same tactic that was used to destroy N*ick Gr*if*fin when he was taking too many Labour votes. Fix the audience, fix the panel. Beam the boos and baying mob into people’s homes. Job done.

    And just for good measure have the Racial Equality mob go after him to strip them of all their assets and tie them up in co*urt.

    The BBC and establishment don’t play fair.

    Q2. 97% of EU migrants are in work? {ignore the 3 million jobs they have taken}
    Q3. 3 million jobs will be lost {ignore anything that discounts this claim}
    Q4. Without the ECHR UK would have imprisonment without trial?
    Q5. UKIP are racist homophobes? {refer to sluts and gay floods}
    Q6. NF you want Putin to rule Europe? {read out the most damning parts- edited}
    Q7. NF you don’t believe in man made global warming? {play down man made – big up ‘don’t believe’}

    and finally

    Q8. You have a lot of support from the B#N~P? {imply he is a nazi}

    Remember- The audience picks the questions not the BBC and Dimbleby is more neutral than Switzerland.

    One thing is clear – they don’t like democracy.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
