          So now we know that UKIP’s cleaned its stables. Vote Labour or Tory and you are voting for parties which have failed to remove their rotten apples – probably higher than 15% of their elected officials have been on the fiddle in some manner or other. As the the LibDems, who knows what unseemliness they have been covering up?

          Nobody gives a fuck. The EU goons target anti-EU MEPs and turn a blind eye to compliant MEPs.

          90% of UK MPs should be in jail or, better still, swinging from a crane if not for expenses then for enabling the Blair/Brown clusterfuck by trotting through the lobbies agreeing with every fucked-up law that popped into their fucked-up heads.

          But, since, for the moment at least, we can’t hang the fuckers, giving them a P45 and a giant national ‘FUCK YOU’ is the best we can hope for.

      The floodgates were inadvertently opened by the CCHQ hate campaign.

      Slagging off positions your voters agree with (and sometimes even the voters themselves) isn’t the wisest of tactics from our supposed ‘elite’. Getting every media outlet (even supposedly opposed ones like the Mail and Graun) to do it simultaneously robbed the attack of any authenticity and played right in to UKIP’s establishment conspiracy theme.

      Add to that 2 weeks of blanket exposure for Farage and you’ve got a recipe for establishment disaster. The smear campaign is now running out of steam, having achieved the exact opposite of it’s goal, and every desperate new opinion piece and manufactured twitter storm just makes the main parties and their journo lackeys look even more weak and stupid.

      Farage couldn’t buy the sort of publicity he’s got this month. An absolutely epic own goal by the likes of Finklestein.

        For me it is the profoundly anti-democratic EU, the cynical “bait and switch” of the tory referendum con, climate change, multi-culti PC crap that is anti male, anti straight and anti white. It is their wanting to free businesses to trade more efficiently, effectively with more of the world than ever before.

        The things that I see desperately needing to change in this country, simply cannot change so long as we are in the EU. The way we cannot deport foreign rapists and murderers and terrorists. All due to the ECHR, which is a fundamental requirement of EU membership.

        Being in the EU prevents us from taking rational common sense action to improve our country for the benefit of those who live here.

        The tory pledge to hold an in or out referendum is a massive con. Sure they may hold a referendum, but what with the entire mass of the establishment politicians/media/corrupt corporatists actually be asking you to vote ‘yes’ to?

        They will try to sell you a reform package, that Cameron has not got the power in the EU to deliver by 2017.

        So it will be a campaign highlighting the need to vote yes to the EU reform ‘proposals’ for a Britain with all the benefits of being IN the EU, but with far fewer of the costs and rules…… vs voting no to islation and national disaster.

        With the combined might of tory and labour and the couple of lib-dems, with all the media from the BBC, Murdoch press, Daily Mail, Guardian, Independent, several main unions, lots of pro EU NGO’s the CBI, IoD political charities etc… all campaigning to stay in this “promise of reform” EU.

        Then with this version of an in the EU, but not run by the EU being offered and the accompanying propaganda blitz from across the political spectrum, this country would vote to remain in. They would be mad not too…

        THEN, once we have voted for it, Cameron will not be able to deliver it, because it will only take another memberstate or 3 to veto it and we will be stuck, trapped, inside an unreformed EU.

        Then we would never get a break from listening to Europhiles claiming that we should go all the way in to a Federal United States of Europe, because we all voted IN.

        It’s a con. UKIP are the only party offering a reality based referendum based on the reality of the EU as it is, rather than the torie’s version of voting for a delusional fantasy EU.

        UKIP, Common sense, not Common Purpose.

      The problem for UK is that they are more a saloon bar conversation than a party based on ideology with a clear understanding of what they want.

      Putting together a series of credible policies that make sense is not that easy.

      There is a kind of ideology that could work.

      UKIP need to have a “never again” slogan. Never again will the UK be taken into a supranational organisation without a referendum, never again will the character of teh country be changed through mass immigration, never again will fundamental institutions like marriage be changed without a referendum…

      So referenda are a good place to start in connecting up a lot of policies. .

      Then they need to take a position on economic policy. Are they economic libertarians? If so, I very much doubt they will ever form a government.

      They should perhaps advance a more “common sense economics” – which might involve bringing teh railways back into public ownership.

        None of the other parties have any coherent policies. Labour are still re-writing theirs. In any case, as coalition government and the test case of Labour’s 2005 manifesto has shown, their policies aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.

        Nothing wrong with having no fixed ideology. much better to be pragmatic than dogmatic.

    Did you think that it was only in Banana Republics that Governments used Government money to attack their political opponents?

    Quote from seen elsewhere on anti-ukip funding; (Nigel Farage)

    As I’ve been travelling around the country on my tour ahead of the European Elections, one thing has been consistent, aside from the packed venues: the rabble of left-wing protesters outside any venue, trying to stop people from taking part in the political process.

    These protests are mainly led by Unite Against Fascism and Hope Not Hate, the latter an organisation whose leader is diametrically opposed to the libertarian-leaning Ukip. Nick Lowles is associated with the Communist Party and the Socialist Workers Party, and like the unions who give large donations to their organisation, is mightily upset that Labour voters are coming across to Ukip.

    “While we don’t yet know about the funding for this cross-party group, (accusing UKIP of racism) we do know about funding for Hope Not Hate. For since 2010 it has received £150,000 in funding from the Department of Communities and Local Government, ostensibly to campaign against “racism in deprived areas”. In 2012 it received no less than £63,000 of taxpayers’ money, which given that the group is so open in its hatred of Ukip seems to me an entirely unsuitable use of much-needed government money.

    £213,000 0f Government money to fight UKIP.

    Have a banana.

    In a PMQ’s where Ed Milliband reminded us that the Tory party are corrupt and led by corrupt people it was nice that it was reinforced by two of the recent corrupt asking questions,FOX and ZAHAWI.
    Pity that the piffle over Farage has hidden the latest corruption,who by the way will have a huge payoff from the taxpayer,the corrupt MERCER

    Cameron says Labour MPs’ children, like “son of Kinnock”, are coming back to the Commons. It is literally the same old Labour.

    While just a few seats along from Cameron sits Jeremy Hunt, whose seat was bequeathed to him by his Auntie Virginia (Bottomley), alongside Paymaster General Francis Maude, son of former Paymaster General Angus Maude.

    Hypocrite Dave.

    Cameron, who was claiming to be such a devout Christian over Easter, appears to also believe it’s OK to lie. It’s almost as if he was just pretending to be a Christian to try and impress church going older people who tend to vote and have gone off him in a big way.

        They can have it. It will be proven true after next months elections anyway.

        Presently UKIP have grown to 38%, it shows that voters are comfortable to switch lifelong voting habits, when others become aware of this then they too will feel comfortable. It takes a lot for someone to change a lifetimes allegiance. People also trust Farage.

    I do think ukip are going to do well in the eu elections – I for one am going to vote for them if only to give the other three a kicking.

    But the big political question of the day is how much of that swing will be temporary and how much much of it will swing back to to the other parties for the 2015 General Election.

        You get the same policies anyway. And, as remaining in the EU will strip away all the “competencies” left in the hands of national governments, anyone who votes for the domestic pro EU parties can reconcile themselves to being governed, without any say in it whatever, by the supra national corporate state presided over by fat President Jose Jimenez and his “ex communist” successors.

        It will be interesting to watch but at the moment I do believe the swing to ukip in May will be big but will be a temporary protest blib that will most likely swing back as the General Election looms.

          Once people see that a UKIP vote can deliver real results they will be far less likely to switch back. A good result in the EU vote will keep the momentum going. If you think the dirty tricks have been bad wait until then …
