UKIP Attacking “Scared Ed” U-Turn on TV Debates

scared-ed

Something’s happened to change Ed’s mind about having Nigel Farage join the TV debate. Only a few weeks ago he thought it would be a good wheeze to have Cameron haemorrhage votes to UKIP on immigration and Europe live on TV. After seeing Nick Clegg get slaughtered twice in the TV debates with Nigel Farage he seems to have changed his mind. Scared?

        You’re surely not suggesting that Ed is frit
        And, head- to-head with Nige he’d look a right tit
        Him and Cameron, they’ve got nothing to fear

          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 there out in the cold
          For the times they all need changing

        Yes, Nigel would demolish Cameron almost as easily as Clegg since both Conservative leadership and Lid Dems as a whole are determined to keep us in the EU. As for the mongs saying vote Conservative to get a referendum – the Conservatives promised a referendum before and broke their promise – as did Lib Dems and Labour. So no dice, it’s UKIP for the only realistic chance of a referendum. It could stop the Conservatievs winning this time and then they have to re-think. Let’s face it they have continued the New Labour agenda anyway – even more mass immigration, the Equalities Act, staying in the EU, feminists everywhere, what’s the difference.

In fact, it could be that the tories will be demolished leaving labour to f##k up the country as they have in the past and the Libs get back under their holes leaving UKIP and the people’s army to pick up the pieces and try to turn the country around to the betterment of the indigenous population.

Anybody can understand that the working class suffer most from the perverted dogmas of these clowns without needing to be told by Farage. All he did was speak the truth, yet Cleggover looked like a rabbit in the headlights. I don’t suppose he’s ever heard anyone say anything true before. Yet they are still trying to pretend that U.K.I.P. are “extreme right wing” (whatever that’s supposed to mean) and that only a section of the Tory party will be attracted by them. What tossers!

    The gormless, over privileged cnut has never done a proper days work in his life and he knows Farage would wipe the floor with him.

    I just wish Nige would get rid of the covert coat/barbour look. It does make him look a bit too much like a city spiv/Twickers west car park bore.

    Do not blame Ed for not wanting to debate with Farage. Farage has nothing to offer other than generalisations and nostalgia. They could debate via Skype as effectively. Why give credence to a party filled with bigots, racists and homophobes dressed up as talking for the white working class? Vote UKIP you lose your employment rights, cos Nige does not like the social charter of the EU. Why does Nige and UKIP voter oppose same sex marriage? If two people love each other then that is a good as any reason for them to get married. Pandering to ex Tory hard right supporters. It is the same as when the LIB DEMS started. Tell anything in any street what the people want to hear. Even when the message in one street contradicts the one in the next street. And Nige does not even know what message IS being peddled around. Seems to have a convenient memory when asked about his parties leaflets. NO. UKIP have nothing but hot air and nostalgias to offer. We want a party and government who look to the future. And a future that gives rights and respect to ALL no matter of colour, creed, or sexuality. UKIP would lose too many votes if they tried to support those groups. UKIP voters just live in that nice little world of pre 1950. When everyone almost was white and we doffed our caps to the toffs.

      The Labour Party has most to fear from ukip as the white working class who would not vote Tory might vote ukip instead.

      Also labour has a problem in that many Asian areas it may not be able to rely on thier votes and they might vote for the respect or other parties.

    Hmmmm. Possibly relating to the same danger encountered by a jingoistic Nick. When promoting the spread of ‘democracy’ by force, one is likely to be asked if one is prepared to lead that charge from the front. No politician wants to be confronted by questions that reveal their rendition of reality out of kilter with the population. That’s why they generalise so much, rather than actually attempting to pin down reality (which can defend itself).
