UKIP to the TOP!
The fact it's that high is depressing.
I hope the wheels come well and truly OFF. It'll be fabulous to watch, and exactly what we deserve after they've destroyed any faith we have left in the British public.
The issue is that all the claims of racism, sexual harassment, homophobia and general ignorance in the world won't help when the party's supporters largely don't like people of colour, women, gays or thinking critically.
I read a piece the other day speculating that the rise in UKIP's support is just as much down to sexism as it is racism - the lack of secure blue-collar incomes weakening the role of the man of the family being the primary earner and the authority that came from that, the (relative) reduction in the number of places where casual sexism is acceptable, and a general sense for the men who did that that they 'can't say anything anymore' (or rather, a longing for the right to objectify and harass women again). Hence the nostalgia isn't just for a mostly homogenous Britain, but also one where 'men were men' with traditional gender roles.
I don't know how true it is, but it certainly fits.
Definitely makes sense, although doesn't explain their female support of course.
Obviously it'd apply much more to male supporters than female, but then you do get some women who thinks a woman's place is at home and all that bollocks - not many, but I'd wager a lot of those types have gone UKIP.
In any case given their male support hugely outstrips their female support, it could partially explain that too.
The wheel won't come off until elected MPs start fucking up on a major scale or Nigel Farage, who lets face it IS UKIP departs this mortal coil.
I don't even think fuck ups would halt them. In any case, Nigel's planning a handover in the next five years - if someone like Diane James took over (UKIP's answer to the GMTV bitches) I'd be very worried.
The woman involved has turned out to be a bit of an all round liar but the foreign media have picked up on it.
The most shocking thing is that the alleged sexual predator is only 41.
I'd have guessed 50.
It's a common UKIP trend. This man is 29.
God, Ian Beale got fat.
I think my favourite part of this Kerry Smith/Nigel Farage story about him using the word 'chinky' is that he also managed to fit in the phrase 'Chigwell peasants'
Any idea how old Kerry Smith is?
The skin says 30s but the teeth and hair say 40s. It is very unfortunate to look like a cross between Nick Griffin and Barry Humphries.
Those teeth are grotesque.
He looks uncanny to some guy who pops up on my Grindr looking for a "suckin"
Another one's at it.
Did she come out in support of gay marriage I wonder?
The frightening thing with UKIP is all the 'gaffs' they are making such as this CHINKY business is probably winning them support.
It's just "normal". Eurgh. Thankfully it's mostly old people who will be dead in a generation.
Its wot we all call it neway lol
Farage calls students' UKIP pisstake app "risible and pathetic" Nice work LADS
Oh I was going to try it but it's only on Android
Oh how exciting. The UKIP candidate in my own constituency has shown himself up to be a prize dickhead. They've opened up an office here too. I might have to send them a turd in a jiffy bag.
This is a copy of the Frome UKIP leaflet, supposedly marked by an English teacher mother of a friend of a fb friend
Proofreaders? Who needs them! WE ARE ALWAYS RITE!
Perhaps they can employ some now with their £1m from Dirty Des
Certainly makes me nostalgic for the old teachers red ink of yesteryear (though mercifully my essays weren't that bad).
It seems good old Nigel has somehow survived an ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT after someone unscrewed the wheels on his car he almost crashed. Suspiciously he was driving through France on his way home from Brussels.
The current highest rated comment on the STOP FUCKING HATE story is from someone in Ireland:
I KNEW I should've kept him on my Deathpool :grr:
What the ACTUAL fuck? http://ukiptostay.blog.com/
Why be UKIP the? Just go Tory?
I guess it's the sign they're becoming an establish party, even though they're pretty dead right now. Surely Farage is on his way out?
Farage will have to go once Leave lose. It's the only reason he stayed on.
In the curious world of UKIP, Suzanne Evans was representated at her court appeal to block her suspension by the same barrister who HOURS EARLIER had pled guilty to getting in the drugs for the weekend chemsex bender where his teenage (but legal) boyfriend died. The same barrister who spoke at a Tory party conference aged 17 to support the return of corporal punishment in schools and is a close personal friend of noted sex pest Nigel Evans and live blogged through his rape trial.
Yet STILL not as remarkable as Suzanne Evans being suspended from the party for ALLEGED AMBITION!
Carswell has quit UKIP.
