Don't apologise. On reflection, the OTHER option probably covers None Of The Above.

In conversation, people of different ethnic origins have given me some reasons why they like UKIP;

Farage answers the questions he is asked rather than spouting propoganda
People think it's funny that he scares the Tories (never underestimate the British sense of humour)
He likes a pint and a cigarette (he actually seems human)
UKIP want to exit Europe
UKIP want to control immigration
Labour and Conservative very similar, and all in it for themselves

As we've now moved into the American theme whereby (so the Press tells us) it's useful to the electorate to see their candidates 'having a bit of a show down', it will all boil down to who you can actually bear to listen to/watch as none of this shower seem to have anything to offer.

It's a bit like the build up to a yacht race (I went to Auckland, NZ and all the yachts were under shrouds/scaffolding/heavy duty guard) as to when a particular party's manifesto is unveiled. The fact of the matter is, none of the parties have a strong manifesto. They're all sooo one and the same. Even the new kids on the block, UKIP, are floundering.

It all boils down to who is good looking, who speaks nicely, who is a good public speaker.

I wouldn't buy a second hand car from any of them.

So on the basis that I haven't a clue who I'll vote for as I haven't heard anything of substance from any party, I'm doing the girly thing as to who I like the least on the basis of how they look and how they sound.

Milliband to me is a little jumped up, over-privileged, never had a job marxist whose voice and demeanour makes my skin crawl even before I put that to one side to listen to his vacuous soundbites. I think he's been taking lessons from Tony Blair's speech coach recently as he increasingly sounds like Tony Blair. He has nothing to say, nothing to declare of interest to ordinary folk, nothing that remotely represents the values of a UK socialist party.

Cameron is a creep (only my opinion) a PR expert who revels in and promotes himself with ease (or is that grease). This is the bloke who pretends he's in touch with the nation. Yet another over privileged establishment bod trading on his ability to appear an 'average' (I'm sending my kid to a state school so follow me) person. I'd probably count my fingers if I were ever forced to shake his hand. He'd probably wash his after shaking mine.

Nigel Farage is a fantasy (and I'm quite enthusiastic about the prospect of the introduction of a new party) who has no manifesto, has no wish to be a leader, has no party proper. It's asking me to buy a concept. Nothing more and nothing less. Nigel does telly with his beer and his cigarettes and his large personality. I don't want to see potential leaders of my country talking in a two minute slot on the sofa of Loose Women. I don't want to see the leader of a potentially pivotal political party schmoozing with a posh couple from Goggle Box.

All of these people when they win an election only have five years tenure at best. Five years is a very long time for all the things that are wrong in Britain and the people who become poorer.

SNP

Post by fz2 on 08.03.15 14:01

Surprised the SNP are not included in this poll, as they are most likley to hold the ballance of power come the general election.
Personally I would like to see UKIP holding the ballance of power, if only to see which one of the two main parties they would jump into bed with.
All of the above  ^^ assuming there will be a hung parliament.

How is this a news topic re. Madeleine Mccann?  I thought we all read "Daily Mail " for our world news. Sorry for my misunderstanding of what type of news topic is meant by this thread. I mistook it for yet another disrupted.

universe, I think if this site went all out 100% MBM then some, if not all of us, would be in danger of going insane.
Then again, we could have a CM type here who could spin spin spin and spin spin spin again as to why members of the two main political parties here in the UK got heavily embroiled in the case of MBM.
Oh!, my mistake, no need for spin, as they were/are involved.

There is of course the delectable Clarence Mitchell hoping for a seat in Brighton and the even more delectable (stop tittering at the back) Esther McVey. Both of these characters appear to have distanced themselves from the Madeleine case - she's no longer useful to them.

Despite the MSN documentary 'hatchet' jobs of late regards UKIP, I will still vote for them. It's obviously designed to put voters off for fear of being grouped in with that flavoursome lot. If this had been done with any other political party just prior to election then there would be uproar!

The best the UK electorate can expect is another hung parliament. No party with a definite political agenda other than which particular party is likely to be a future bedfellow, which is the main factor.

No amount of bluster from a media induced frenzy of 'head to head debate' can detract from this.

The media are the best friend any political party can have right now.

I'll vote for any party that states categorically there will be an EU referendum on a specific date. I'll vote for any party that states categorically it will immediately implement a point system to immigration such as Australia have.

It's not an impossible thing to do. Close the doors. UK is full and can't cope with the burden. To ignore this is a dangerous thing imo but then I'm only a little person with one vote and nowhere to place it. It's Hobson's choice again.

Just my opinion.

Cameron has gone back on his word numerous times
Labour just int labour any more
Lib Dems just chase the student vote.

British politics need a shake up.

Our Ukip candidate is a local bloke who doesn't go on about immigration immigration immigration. He talks about doing the right thing for the voter and not the party line.

Exactly.

Yesterday a UKIP candidate on the politics show said that there are currently 38,000 immigrants claiming benefits in this country and one million British youngsters still without a job.   Figure it out - impossible.

The way Farage and UKIP are portrayed reminds me of how Tony Benn used to be treated; harmless lunatic, let's all laugh at him. That usually means they're seen as a threat to the status quo.

I agree, aquila. For many decades, I have been disappointed by the SYSTEM. This is what should change if the country is to be run in a professional way. If it wasn't for the internet we still wouldn't be aware of all the corruption in councils and Government.

I'm in favour of getting out of the EU as we have had two world wars to ensure we were not governed by the rest of Europe. Cameron has refused to give us a referendum. Please remind me if Cameron has done any good whatsoever.  He has covered up files which should have been acted on, sold a profitable railway line to Virgin, hindered the NHS and has seemed to help all the wrong people.

In the other camp we HAD Gordon Brown selling our gold at a low price and also selling our North Sea Gas which is now low and we have to buy gas from Russia.

Tony Blair's Weapons of Mass Destruction wasn't what 99.99% of the people thought it was...another cover-up. Many govt decisions are what the US has told us to say...going back to the 60's with TSR2 being cancelled (I suspect). A world leader which put the American noses out of joint.

Politicians may start out with good intentions but many make extra money from other sources and their job of representing the public is soon forgotten.

From a practical point of view, we cannot support an unlimited number of people from housing, food , gas and electric points of view.

There are some hard-working people in both the Lords and Commons and I do applaud them....and some just fall asleep.

I think a hung parliament is a real possibility but what a useless mix we will end up with. I am very disappointed with the system and politicians.

I will vote UKIP but it will be only a token gesture in a Labour area.

Farage is the only candidate, for decades, that comes across as real.  I`m not in agreement with all his policies but I believe what he says because he doesn`t spout robotic politicospeke.  Even Jeremy Paxman didn`t phase him because he stayed real and didn`t try to duck, dodge and lie when challenged.

It's just a pity that Nigel Farage admitted he didn't think he'd make a very good prime minister.

Why would I bother voting for him then?

On the basis of your post, am I to take it that rattling sabres is the best UKIP can achieve in a coalition government?

I was hoping for five years of something more than that.

I feel I'm being asked to buy a concept and I have concerns, deep concerns that Farage is a toothless tiger.
