WATCH: Giant EU Octopus Destroys Britain’s Democracy

An early contender for the most bonkers fringe party campaign video of the election season has to be An Independence From Europe and their giant octopus:

The party was set up by ousted UKIP MEP Mike Nattrass and have deliberately started their name with an ‘a’ to get to the top of the ballot paper. Their tagline is ‘UK Independence Now’. See what they did there?

    Mike Nattrass? Is that a joke name like Mike Hunt?

    probably sponsored by the EU to try and take a couple of UKIP votes, and to be fair they may actually get 2 votes

    bigmax says:

    The giant octopus looks a bit ridiculous and will put a lot of people off the rest of the message. But unfortunately what the video says about the EU and its effects on this country is entirely true.

    Still, now about these fellows going to help in Sy’ria, what is to be done? The relevant authorities are appealing to the womenfolk I understand but can they see anything with the bin bag upon their person?

    Well that’s settled it then. Two Labour party plants and a Mr Toad mock-up has holed UKIP below the water-line.

    I shall be voting Labour instead of UKIP.

    Its perfectly obvious support Assad so he can kill a many as possible and they dont come back.

  26. 26

    Well, he definitely is one.

    Here’s a challenge. See if you can find anyone in his region that can name a single thing he’s done. Best days work he ever did was leaving UKIP, he was useless.

    speaking as an honorary muzzo – tho’ still not cut as I should be – I can say that I certainly would obey my hisband in all matters.

    As these idiots related to “A Fresh Choice for Europe”, Some pratts called themselves this in the London Mayorality Electionss – was it also so that they would be top on the list!

    Many UKIP members have been sent letters, recently, from an unnamed source, threatening all sorts of rubbish. This would have cost someone £thousands. Who is paying for this? Will the Police do anything about it?

    The Labour Party is looking to sever its links with the much troubled Guido Fawkes and his co-conspiritors bringing to an end one of the oldest political partnerships in the UK.

    Vote UKIP says:

    The fact our pro EU political parties and media think Euro election results are of no real consequence kind of confirms what Nigel is saying.
    The Euro Parliament is nothing more than a bit of window dressing to give us the illusion of democracy.

    Crazy mixed up politics says:

    Did you hear her on the news saying that the poor lads maybe went out there on a humitarian mission, but once there maybe got involved.

    But then again, why should the government object to their activities, when they are financing and aiding them with ‘support’ anyhow?

    Oh aye, that’ll be it. The religion of peace is famed for its ‘humanitarian missions’ worldwide.

    They were all over Haiti when they had that earthquake. Lads from Crawley, Bradford and Birmingham. Tens of thousands of them. Collecting in the streets and flying out off their own bat and rebuilding homes.

    Then, when Hurricane Katrina hit, there they were again, hundreds of thousands of them rushing to the airports, petitioning their governments for aid.

    And who can forget the aftermath of the 7/7 bombings when the streets of all our major cities were blocked by one million M*us*li*ms protesting and chanting ‘Not in our name’.

    ‘Humanitarian Aid’ my fucking arse.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
