Don't forget Godfey Bloom's sexism either or the victim blaming on rape by Roger Helmer MEP

UKIP is for those who don't understand the European Union, therefore, they don't like it.
I won't be gracing them with vote.

No. Green.

jharris20 Sun 27-Apr-14 22:09:35

It's a close UKIP-Labour contest. A vote for Green is a wasted vote.

Rivercam Sun 27-Apr-14 22:12:19

No

I'm never going to vote UKIP, but can't see myself voting Labour either. I honestly think the best thing Labour can do is get rid of Ed Miliband.

Sallyingforth Sun 27-Apr-14 22:13:37

I certainly won't be voting UKIP, for all those reasons and others.

But I won't be voting Labour either until they can find an acceptable leadership that's not tarnished by the Blair/Brown fiasco.

DulcetMoans Sun 27-Apr-14 22:16:23

Good run down of reasons to avoid UKIP but ruined it with the last bit- 'vote labour'? No thanks!

Oh, and no vote is wasted if its used.

AskBasil Sun 27-Apr-14 22:16:54

Yes, I don't want to be paid the same wage as someone with a penis because I don't deserve it as I've only got a vagina.

Also I don't want maternity leave, it's uppity of me to even think I've got the right to function in society when I've got the reproductive organs which actually produce the children.

And also, I think it's quite right that I should be able to laugh off a little bit of rape and sexual assault in an attractive, feminine manner and not make a fuss about it.

Where do I put my cross?

Handsup Sun 27-Apr-14 22:17:15

Absolutely fucking not!

Figster Sun 27-Apr-14 22:17:49

Absolutely not never!!!

yegodsandlittlefishes Sun 27-Apr-14 22:21:12

No, never.

jharris20 Sun 27-Apr-14 22:28:53

Labour is the only party offering a real alternative to the ConDems. Labour has promised an energy bill freeze and Ed Milliband is not really tainted by the Blair-Brown saga, he has only been an MP since 2005.
UKIP is leading Labour in polls at the moment, and it's going to be a two-horse race

LEMmingaround Sun 27-Apr-14 22:31:53

Are you canvassing. No I wont vote ukip I am not sure who ill vote for

Sallyingforth Sun 27-Apr-14 22:32:19

jharris I said an acceptable leadership.
For me that means someone with drive, charisma, and experience in public office.

LadySybilLikesCake Sun 27-Apr-14 22:33:59

Which party are you from, OP? You have only joined to slag off UKIP, so I don't think you are one of them. Maybe you should have a peek at the Electorial Commission web site, you may find it useful.

DulcetMoans Sun 27-Apr-14 22:50:36

Well I think it's clear which party OP is from...

DulcetMoans Sun 27-Apr-14 22:51:28

Well I think it's clear which party OP is from...

Wittsend13 Sun 27-Apr-14 22:51:42

I will be voting for them!

jharris20 Sun 27-Apr-14 22:52:00

@LadySybilLikesCake
I'm not sure what the point you are trying to make is?

Wittsend13 Sun 27-Apr-14 22:55:23

I think the point she's trying to make here is you've clearly joined this site to plug labour.

nonameisgoodname Sun 27-Apr-14 22:57:59

I'm a sucker for the underdog. I voted ukip when I was 18. I thought I was voting for the independent candidate and worried no one else would vote for them if I didn't.

It's a mistake I've never lived down!!

Sallyingforth Sun 27-Apr-14 22:58:16

- and cross-posting to other topics too!

One of their candidates has defended racist comments made about Lenny Henry on Twitter
