just switched on the news to be confronted by a London cab driver (stating that he does not want foreigners human rights put above those of this country) and token Asian man (business man wanting more support for business not our tax going to Brussels)

could it have been more predictable grin

on a serious note Nigel Farage should not be written off

They used to be hilarious. Especially if you engaged with activists on the doorstep.

To be honest I find them worrying now they are pretending to be mainstream and have a veneer of respectability.

I am going to vote for them in the local elections coming up. Sick of the mainstream big 3 parties.

twofingers grin that is uncanny..
Sadly they are becoming more of a threat round here. They used to be a joke but not so much now.

I saw it too, it was shit. A very unsubtle message of Fuck Off Foreigners This Is Britain. Nothing concrete whatsoever though; no real ideas, just an unpleasant mindset.

They piss me off. Though it is laughable that they claim to be non-racist, and then on their flyer that was stuck through my door, one of their top points is that "Our traditional values have been undermined. Children are taught to be ashamed of our past. Multiculturalism has split our society. Political correctness is stifling free speech.".

Yes. You're not racist, and I'm off shooting for bacon tonight.

Are these the daily mail party or something?

I try to ignore, although Nigel Garage does make me laugh with his antics in Europe, or he did!

I think it's worrying too nth, I know many people voting for them. Luckily I live in a Labour or die area or else I would be quite concerned.

Don'tthink they will get far in a general election though

What SirBoobALot says is the reason that UKIP worry me - i think that they are racist or prejudiced at least. I would never vote for them.

I would vote for them they are not racist big difference between the bnp

FreudiansSlipper Tue 16-Apr-13 20:23:57

really Pearly what are the differences? very few that I have seen if you read their manifestos just UKIP bang on about Europe interference a little more and focus less on skin colour

catgirl1976 Tue 16-Apr-13 20:28:53

Yes they are Pearly.

The English Defence League support them. That should give you a clue.

catgirl1976 Tue 16-Apr-13 20:30:16

Oh and they are homophobic too.

Dawndonna Tue 16-Apr-13 20:37:57

They don't much like the disabled, either.

Non ukip voters view the party as racist.
Ukip voters don't.
Go figure.

"Our traditional values have been undermined. Children are taught to be ashamed of our past. Multiculturalism has split our society. Political correctness is stifling free speech."

Can't say I disagree with any of that. They'll be getting my vote.

U Know I'm Phick

Non ukip voters view the party as racist.
Ukip voters don't.
Go figure.

Their party slogan should be "I'm not a racist but..."

Buzzardbird Tue 16-Apr-13 23:21:54

Fantastic Mrs

WinkyWinkola Tue 16-Apr-13 23:26:28

What traditional value are undermined?

Ashamed of what history?

Use your brains will you? It's such tosh.

macreturnofthe Tue 16-Apr-13 23:27:54

just check out all their policies prior to voting - racist views aren't their only specialty - scary right wing stuff (and i aint no socialist!!)

ThingsThatMakeYouGoHmmmmmmmmm Tue 16-Apr-13 23:50:52

A stack of people who have "read UKIP's manifesto........." hmm

Or perhaps just read what the Grauniad thinks of UKIP's manifesto.. wink

I would read it on their website but my continued use of their website is consent to Cookies (for some reason). Nice privacy policy UKIP. That fills me with confidence in their ability to govern.

Lazyjaney Tue 16-Apr-13 23:59:52

Let's see who laughs last. The mainstream parties ignored them for too long.

UKIP are the BNP for people who shop in M&S.

Veritable flurry of acronyms and initialisms there.
