My parents were journalists in the 70s and 80s. They weren't saints, but they were politically empowered and radical and principled. They uncovered co...
I know it sounds daft (although not as daft as The Greens' housing policies) but before we jump up and down and crucify her (I may already be a bit late) let me make my argument.
When the Ukip MP Douglas Carswell defected from the Conservative Party in August 2014 his speech struck a non-vitriolic tone. He wanted to present the...
The cross-cultural perspective of Anthropology aims to stretch as widely as possible across the world to examine the fundamental truths we rest on. It allows us to ask, is religion a universal human phenomenon? Are humans selfish by default? Can large societies function without a state? Is there such a thing as a universal moral code?
As a hardworking Polish migrant in Britain, the thought of Nigel Farage sticking on the kettle at Number 10 is a terrifying thought. But, like the million viewers across the country who tuned in, we were forced to picture this distressing scenario during Channel 4's UKIP: The First 100 Days last Monday.
It's arguable how much difference there is between the two/three main parties, the Conservatives, Labour and, to a lesser extent, the Lib Dems (I think there are fairly significant differences).
He admitted that he and other immigrants were taking our jobs, but said that they were shit jobs which no one else wanted. As if to prove his point, he ended up as a road sweeper. With undeniable clarity of thought and logic, he exclaimed that as long as he cleaned the streets, he should be able to sleep on them.
So, Ukip is officially more hated than Marmite. Nigel Farage's party is the most-hated brand in the UK, beating McDonalds and Starbucks as well as Marmite, according to a survey of 1,500 people. Farage should be rather pleased with the honour.
Dealing with the current problem is not rocket science, but it needs the political will to be there to take action. Fortunately one Party has that political will: Ukip. Each of the points above were raised by Ukip long before the current scandal. Why? Because it's the right thing to do, and it didn't just start when the media spotlight fell on this issue.
I really don't get Labour's campaign at the moment. It's like they're heading into a football match with a 10-0 advantage, up against nine men who are all in blindfolds, and they still end up getting trounced.
Led by Nigel Farage and Ukip, the British public have been led to believe that our country is the victim of a devastating tidal wave of EU immigrants. Crime levels have gone through the roof, public services are close to collapse, our jobs are in danger, 'British values' are all but gone and the M4 westbound is permanently gridlocked.
I'm writing this article on my way back from Strasbourg, having just voted in favour of a motion for probably the first time since being elected as a Ukip MEP. Raif Badawi, a liberal blogger, was sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment and 1,000 lashes in Saudi Arabia, because his blog was critical of the religious system...
Students as a demographic have always been, and probably always will be, protest voters. They crave the anti-establishment parties which claim to offer some sort of utopia. But, it is not a coincidence that the less power a party has, the more outlandish promises they will make in the run up to an election.
The campaign to stay in can't be only about pounds, shillings and pence. This is a Battle for Britain's future. The good that comes from our EU membership could be so much better if the UK got stuck in; the bad is so much worse.
Ukip undoubtedly attracts supporters from all walks of life - a party polling strongly just three months before a General Election must - but our Ukip Index illustrates the types of voters most likely to have been won over.
Ukip is a spectacular feat of failed branding. A triumph of people over positioning - flawed, confused, uncertain people - at a time when we need exactly that. So, with less than 90 days to go until the general election, hurrah for Ukip.
