This needs to change and it should not be used as a tool to endorsing a discriminatory political agenda.

UKIP is Neoliberalism's Frankenstein Moment

Dr Kristian Lasslett | Posted 23.05.2014 | UK Politics
Dr Kristian Lasslett

UKIP is not a protest party or indeed an anti-establishment beachhead, it is simply a zany sibling of the two political wings of neoliberal rule. As a result, UKIP will not offer working class voters substantive answers to contemporary dilemmas.
