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…

          Dimbleby is sure to mention the Enoch Powell speech – the BBC can’t see how any one might think there was a grain of truth in what he said and anyone that thinks otherwise must be a racist.

            I thought Powell was wronged by the right. He was a rising Tory politician but a grammar school boy so that wouldn’t do.

            The ‘racist’ thing was wholly manufactured for the purpose of crushing any leadership ambitions he may have had. Even though, back then, it was perfectly normal to be racist. Just as it still is today practically everywhere in the world outside the self-loathing white political classes.

      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.

          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.
