Suspended Council Candidate Doesn’t Make National News

Michael Crick is teasing he has “another astonishing exclusive on UKIP” coming up this evening. You can bet he won’t be giving as much airtime to Labour’s announcement that they have suspended one of their council candidates after he was accused of defrauding his own council. Or LibDem councillor Ajit Atwal, who is still a candidate for May despite being photographed with an AK47. Or the recent Tory council candidate who was revealed to have been a past member of the BNP.

Guido does feel UKIP overdo it sometimes with the cries of smear and establishment stitch up. But when these stories rarely make the news bulletins or front pages and equivalent stories about UKIP do, the press is just playing into Farage’s hands…

    So we will hound them until they give up trying to get in.

    UKIP is being systematically smeared in the run-up to the Euros by both the Tory print media and the BBC/Guardian planet Zarg metroplex.
    I don’t actually support them but I bitterly resent all these clever people trying to manipulate how I think, poor little stupid me.
    The trick is to ignore everyone’s opinion – and their agenda – and go where the common sense lies.
    I think I may vote UKIP just to stick it up Milly Caminickers – but then, she’s such a minger…

    I’ve just heard on the radio(PM) that all three party leaders have attacked Nigel Farage for not standing as a candidate in the forthcoming Newark election.They are disgusting. Mr.Farage is being attacked by politicians and media and he is given no respite.Ordinary voters who cannot get their voices heard or their views taken seriously must support Mr. Farage against such onslaught or we will have allowed the ‘establishment’ to walk all over us and put us back where they think we belong. I do not want to belong to a political party but today I have joined UKIP in order to show support for a courageous man and a courageous party.

    The LibLabCons can’t keep a handle on their own MP’s deviant activities let alone their thousands of councillors and supporters.
    However my point is it is what a party does when they find out that someone is a bad egg.
    Thus far UKIP have a 100% record of kicking them out the three main parties brush them off then bring the buggers back.

    NIgel Farage has a job to do. It is to help deliver a massive kick in the nuts to the Westminster Parliament which has utterly failed us. Becoming an MP at this stage is a distraction from the basic task, whihc is to demonstrate the popular revulsion at the EU. I am sure there will be plenty of opportunities for him to turn up at Westminster Parsih council and lecture everyone when the time comes.

SDLP backing anything & anyone to avoid meltdown, Shinners trying to avoid having to make a decision on anything and blaming the Brits for everything, Alliance trying to find a fence wide enough to sit on and then (with impeccable timing) say the wrong thing whenever they open their mouths.

    For any lurkers; we do not have proper elections in Norn Iron – just a periodic tribal headcount of the restless natives…

    LBC Radio are also continually bashing UKIP at the moment. Show after show during each 24 hour period they queue up to get the boot in. Same for Boris. It’s as if they have daily production meetings where all the weekday presenters are presented with the mandatory editorial line. (Surely not!) Yet they pretend to be so independent. After their rebrand the company stated LBC would stand for Leading Britain’s Conversation. I’ve got a more accurate slogan – Labour’s Brainwashing Claptrap for much of the day. So add them to BBC lynch mob. Disgraceful that people with so much access to the public should be allowed to be so biased. Arrogant mid morning presenter (an ex public schoolboy on a permanent socialist guilt trip) is possibly the worst.

    Patriots unite says:

    The political cartel and their client media?

    The cartel has to destroy UKIP at any cost in order for their high treason plot to succeed. The cartel will stop at nothing to destroy UKIP and their stooge client media is now holding back stories that damage the cartel and concentrating on the smear campaign against UKIP.

    The cartel cannot ban UKIP though its obvious they would love to, they cannot cancel the elections though its pretty obvious they would do it if they could but we can expect a liblabcon grand coalition after 2015 if UKIP does as well then as it is going to do in May.

    If UKIP wins the cartel will be exposed for the traitors they are and their high treason will be shown to the world, the stakes couldnt be higher for the liblabcon cartel, they have no wish to be paraded in front of a judge on charges of high treason.

    People are just bored of being called rac ist etc..if anything, and all the airtime given to the same boring self-important far-left opiniotards.

    So what if they are waythithts? What are you going to do about it? Shout your special and important opinions at them? Kick their heads in until they agree with you? Ban them from working and fill up tje prisons and mental hospitals with thoughtcriminals? Fock off, you useless conts, your opinion doesn’t matter; nor does it hurt their fockin feelins, get ra ped, left-wing shitweasals.

    Hopefully, medialand is going to start tuning in to the fact that just as with the politicians, nobody’s listening to them because they’re not listening to the millions of members of the “bigo ted community”.

    We are always being told how bad the main parties are. So what news is it when one is found to be bad. But it is news when the saints of UKIP are found to be just as bad.
    Pretend to be one thing and are just like the rest. Meanwhile one numpty questions Mo Farah and his right to run for Britain. Bet UKIP do not put that in their election broadcasts. Millions cheered Mo on at the games. Are UKIP real or just a fantasy game show led by a comic?

    I think the EU elections are going to be a bloodbath.

    At least 50% of people can’t actually stand the EU bollocks and want to just be left alone to be a free, prosperous sovereign nation again that respects and trades with its neighbours and countries further afield, to mutual advantage. Needless to say, we should have firm control of our borders again.

    A similar percentage are tired of hearing a shrill, arrogant leftist media and commentariat claiming to be speaking ‘for them’, which then calls them bigots if they so much as raise an eyebrow.

    These groups largely overlap, but I’d say 60% of the population falls into one of the two.

    The likes of Guy Verhofstadt are not going to like what they see when they look at the UK section of their precious parliament, that’s for sure

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.”
