Bittersweet Showing for Nationalist Parties

If Plaid Cymru does not seize leadership now, it will be harder for them to do so in the future. Likewise, if people vote against a Brexit, the SNP and Ukip lose the opportunity to use the results as a platform to launch their next electoral campaign on. If people vote to remain in the UK, the SNP and Ukip will have to play on the par with traditional parties, where the asymmetry of power is significantly tilted against them.

Vile thugs have attacked the home of a UKIP Kent county councillor, smearing obscene political hate slogans all over the walls of his garage last weekend. The attack occured in the Thanet South parliamentary constituency where Nigel Farage is standing, and may be part of a cowardly attempt to intimidate political campaigners in advance of the May elections.

To the Murderers Who Attacked Charlie Hebdo

It is quite clear that you do not care about the loss of life and suffering that you have caused. It is quite clear that you have no regard to the friends and family of your victims or to the people of France.

Talking About the 99.7%

In the media, we hear a lot about the 0.3% - those candidates for Ukip who've said or done stupid things, things which neither Ukip nor anyone else in the country would. They've had the oxygen of publicity for far too long. I want to talk about the 99.7%, about what we believe.

The People's Politics - Why It's Time Voters Are Really Represented In Parliament

Perhaps we ought to start looking into The Green Party, or even The Animal Welfare Party, or rather than protest voting for the far right, protest vote by destroying our voting slips? Surely anything is better than voting for a party who're no better than the BNP?

The Day Democracy Died

Jonathan Arnott | Posted 12.01.2015 | UK Politics
Jonathan Arnott

Okay, I'll admit it. As a UKIP MEP I've believed for a while now that the European Parliament lacks many of the true features of a proper Parliamentary democracy. I didn't think that I could be any more shocked than I have been already at the breathtaking lack of respect for the rules, but I was wrong...

Parlez-vous Anglais?‏

Unlimited immigration from the EU is not a good thing. Immigration is, according to the polling, the second most important issue in British politics today - behind only the economy. In his Conference speech Labour's Ed Miliband, the man hoping to be our next Prime Minister, 'forgot' to mention both the economy and immigration. Understandable perhaps, given Labour's record on both issues when they were in government.

The EU juggernaut will still roll on, and Mr. Juncker will still become Commission President next week, but this time there are 24 UKIP MEPs determined to stand up for British interests and fight for democracy.

The Conservatives are offering a referendum on Europe because they are scared of Ukip. The Labour Party is concerned about immigration because they too are scared of Ukip. It is this effect where Ukip can affect the political and social agenda.

Farage Slapped Down By His Ex-Deputy For Disowning Ukip's Manifesto

The Top Ten Ukip Arguments (And Why They Are False)

Immigrants are not a strain on the public sector, austerity is. Moreover, if Ukip truly believe that "Britain is full", should the party be urging its members to stop procreating? Same-sex relationships would surely be far more patriotic?

Warning: Euro Elections Ahead

I'm sure you already have it marked in your diary: 22 May, the date of the next euro-elections. If you haven't, you should have. Why? Because, if current opinion polls are right, anti-EU parties will do exceptionally well in several countries, including here in Britain.

It's That Bloomin' Man Again

A jolly time was had by all at the Ukip Party Conference. Who even knew that they had one? They should be glad of all the publicity they can get, but in the mind of Nigel Farage, the man who commands the spotlight, any deviation of attention is unwelcome. Godfrey Bloom was that deviation.
