Oh dear….as all the brains of Ukip get together in their Spring Conference down in Torquay, they still have no domestic policies since rubbishing their own 2010 manifesto, so out of necessity they revert back to their ‘proven’ less ‘touchie feelie’ policy and borrow their slogan from the BNP.
Mr Farage warns us again that Ukip poses the “biggest threat” in modern times; we finally agree on something, Slick.
Claig and Spinflight when they get back, please walk us through these defining moments in British political history.
I don't think such crass slip ups affect Kippers' support for UKIP. The dearth of operable policies does not deplete their zeal. Why should it? The 'big 3' discard manifesto 'promises' willy nilly, cannot produce straight answers to straight question and slope shoulders. UKIP keeps it simple, immigration, Europe, we're not the other 3. Simple concepts, no brain power need be expended. Nigel would have to dress in a tutu and recite 'Jabberwocky' backwards all through Conference to discomfit Kippers, and I'm not sure even that would.
The 'willy nilly' of Ukip disowned every policy in 2010, as for the big 3, coalitions between right wing and left wing parties needing to form a working government needs a compromise so they have an excuse.
And your problem on immigration, you could have every MEP seat in Brussels and still not stop Europeans traveling here, so as this Ukip pretender comes clean and confirms that, YOUR ONLY POLICY IS A LIE.
“Ukip will have to negotiate a withdrawal from the European Union over many years and the party still has to work out the details of how it would secure such an exit, a leading Ukip MEP candidate in May's European elections has conceded”.
“Janice Atkinson, who is number two on the party's candidate list in the South East England constituency, admitted it would be impossible just to walk away from the EU.”
“Her remarks at a public meeting in Brighton last week underline the extent to which key details of Ukip policy have yet to be developed.”
Janice was merely explaining the article 50 approach, which specifies by treaty two years of negotiations before exiting the EU.
The comment of course is incorrect, it is possible to just walk away after repealing the 1972 act however it is considered the nuclear option.
"Labour work and pensions spokesman Liam Byrne added: "The truth is the Government's immigration cap is in disarray, 5000 officers and staff are being cut from the border agency and we can't even keep out radical preachers banned by the Home Secretary."
" The phrase "One-nation Tory" originated with Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881), who served as the chief Conservative spokesman and became Conservative Prime Minister in February 1868."
" In his 2012 Conference Speech, Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour Party, sought to claim the phrase and apply it to Labour. It has been used by the Labour Party ever since."
Guess that's the Welsh, Scottish and Irish who now know where they figure in new labour's plans...
Spin....Ukip without one seat in parliament, never mind a 326 seat majority, can not force a UK exit from the an E.U, on a UK parliament, you are STILL lying to the electorate to get MEP seats in April.
Considering the longer we remain 'in' the more damage to our democracy and economy there will be, the fastest way for any in/out vote is via a Conservative majority government in 2015, and if Ukip were patriotic, they would allow that to happen, rather than pee against the wind on what they 'might' do, 'when' they figure out how to do 'it'.
"Considering the longer we remain 'in' the more damage to our democracy and economy there will be"
I entirely agree with this bit. We need the tories 'out'. Preferably destroyed for all time.
Spin….in life, never mind politics, if an entity is a popular fad with nothing to offer of substance, in any ‘thinning of the herd’ invariably the pretender falls by the wayside fairly quickly – especially if considering the breadth, depth of policies and country running competency on general election day.
If Ukip and their backers really believed on the importance of leaving the EU (over a self centred bid for a bit of power), they wouldn’t be wishing for the destruction of the one politically party that CAN AND WILL offer a relatively quick exit from the EU, via a referendum.
But then again if we stay ‘in’, as it’s in their name, the one policy-pony- trick-party wouldn’t have any other reason to exist, now would they?
Both parties are nasty reactionary pieces of shit, and all good working people should oppose any party which seeks to pit one worker against another.
The alternative being Labour, who refused/still refuses to give the people a say on Europe, who spent countless £billions and still screwed EVERY working class person in this country during 13-years of Labour policies and for decades to come, due to the unbalanced economy and national debt they left.
But as an alternative to Ukip, even I'd prefer a Labour government, as at least they offer a PROVEN level of economic incompetence, that only a no policy, no clue Ukip, can even hope to aspire to.
