      Millions now support UKIP because Cameron and his liberal left so called Tories have been a catastrophe for Britain, they have pushed Britain backwards. There is no difference between Dave and Labour anymore.
      Here’s Dave’s post 2010 legacy.

      -Continuing the big interfering state and taking 50% of GDP to run itself
      badly.
      -Thieving £120 billion from pensioners and savers to give to borrowers and
      state spending.
      -Falling living standards and soaring essentials inflation
      -Broken state and personal finances.
      -Failed housing policy.
      -Uncontrolled immigration, 500,000 immigrants arriving every year.
      -Selling out to the EU, refusing a referendum on Lisbon and advocating
      expansion with hundreds millions more joining.
      -Failure to reform and cut the cost of the state sector.
      -Failure to deal with the welfare disaster.
      -Continuing to waste £12 billion a year overseas aid.
      -Green energy zealotry killing pensioners and impoverishing us all.
      -Destroying the military – yet bombing Libya and wanting war in Syria
      -Appalling border security and policing.
      -Continuing multicultural extremism and political correctness.
      -Gay marriage.
      -Doing nothing about illegal immigrants.
      -Decaying infrastructure.
      -P’edos Perverts and Nonces.
      -Collapsing education and health services.
      -More erosion of our judicial independence through the ECHR and the EU.
      -BBC a law unto itself.
      -Many areas of the country turning in to third world shitholes over night, no one
      wanted this and no one asked for it.

        “A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.

        1 Timothy 2:11-15

        Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.

        Ephesians 5:22-33

        Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.

        Genesis 3:16-19

        Useful Idiots are still banging on about ‘Nazi’s’ and have not figured out that the junior party which just collapsed the coalition is very likely controlled by M’oscow. GRU runs like a cancer through the U’krainian State – not all of it has been removed.

          Depends upon what one classes as ‘pressure’.

          If Putin has someone high up in his system who has set this whole thing up in the absence of Putin’s knowledge, then there could well be an internal pressure. IFF…

          Indeed, didn’t you presented the argument the other day that he could have had the person arrested, court-marshalled and shot by now? It would have saved his international face and even presented himself as a reasonable person to the world’s many bedwetters.

          That moment of possibility has now gone.

          My real point was that an election would almost certainly polarise the situation much more.

          • Election may not happen. What just brought this coalition to an end will now be working to agitate for civil unrest to delay that.

            Ukraine’s military could take matters into its own hands and take control of the State. Many possibilities. Protracted guerilla war is the most likely outcome in medium term.

            May expect to see some key infrastructure destroyed shortly. Partly to slow down the continued advance West and partly to deny the kind of victory which R’ussia is looking for.

            Security of power stations and gas transport infrastructure should be a concern. A repeat of Chernobyl courtesy of another error by either R’ussian or R’ussian backed forces would not be so good.

            Blowing the pipelines – may as well. That denies R’ussia the ability to sell and would hurt it economically. Much of that is perhaps ‘wired’ and ready to go.

            No one is going to be brought to justice on MH17 here. Those actually responsible will be liquidated. R’ussia may later offer up some dupes to appease international feeling but no-one actually involved as they would be able to incriminate R’ussia.

            Open Justice is not the way R’ussia works at all. There would be no court martials in this case as those responsible were irregular forces working for ‘separatists’ who may be shortly re-branded ‘terrorists’ by R’ussia. U’krainians already describe them that way btw.

            P’utin is a better tactician than strategist. The lack of ability R’ussia demonstrated in getting it’s story straight from the start with MH17 suggests poor active policy management which would be commensurate with an inexperienced tightly controlled team. They did not plan for that. They are also not very good when ‘caught on the hop’ – a useful weakness to know about.

            The alterations to plans here is tactically good, strategically (medium term – as can be seen) not so.

            MH17 would not have been pre-planned – that would have been an accident. That fact does not get anyone off the hook.

            The collapse of U’kraine govt. is not an accident.

            On that basis there is no pressure on P’utin to act one way or another, unless of course his people conveniently express outcry at the apparent security risk the previously stable State of U’kraine now poses. Some of that concern may come internationally also.

            We’ll be back on their original plan shortly. They were likely to have collapsed the U’kraine government next month after consolidating the East this month.

            They will want U’kraine finished before sanctions are lifted on !ran.

            May also want to keep an eye out for further accidents / ‘terrorist’ attacks in areas close to oil production / transport – particularly in N’orth A’frica and maybe N!geria.

          • I think the chances of change in RF leadership would be increased only if the strategy in U’kraine fails, or if Oil came down in price significantly.

            In terms of supply and demand, if production cannot be kept up then removing demand would help push the price down. Allowing !ranian oil back onto the market would achieve that.

            However, the alternative should perhaps be considered carefully, particularly by E’urope.

            Agree with you that if there was any interest in preserving the previous status quo, or indeed, continuing the pretence that R’ussia has nothing but hostile intent for the West or anyone else it considers an enemy, then the course of action would have been different.

            That there does not appear to be any hint of a challenge to P’utins authority would suggest that the key power structures are fully signed up to his plan. Question is – how far does that extend to the R’ussian people ? R’ussia did keep the burial in M’oscow of its fallen paratroopers the other day very very quiet.
