UKIP sort of stole BNPs thunder a little bit.

True story. When I went to school, one of the kids mentioned his parents were related before they got married. We used to rib him something terrible. Uncle dad and Auntie mum as I recall!

Its not harsh at all........ BNP members basically went either to UKIP or joined the EDL depending on whether they felt like inflicting their racism through violence or not.

A farcical group against immigration run by a french immigrant and his german immigrant wife, picking up the fallouts from nick griffins disgusting racist organisation. UKIP are like the bottom feeders eating the other decaying bottom feeders. The local UKIP member (who unsurprisingly is an ex copper, and I don't have a lot of time for pigs either particularly), tried to talk to me on the way to voting, told him what I thought then quite happily to his face aswell.

I'm not very sure of who the BNP are, but this does sound a little silly.

As for UKIP I and many like me would love to see them win and win big.

There are ex-conservatives in ukip too.

I don't think you can just put everyone in the same bag, not that i'd ever vote for them.

Labour/Tories it's the same.

Both funded by big corporations, both ready for war under false pretences, both ready to bend over for US imperialism.

I think it's a mistake to draw a line between the two.

Man, I gotta say you Brits have some weird, corporation owned, dirty politics going on over there. Pretty terrible political situation you have. Pretty laughable.

Now here in the US, we have totally honest, incorruptible, government by the people, for the people, and of the people. I know that's true because it's written somewhere important.

If you guys hadn't screwed up and caused that little set-to in the late 1700's, we might have let you stay and learn from us.

Too bad...

At least labour didn't go about pricing young adults out of the education market, declaring people with severe disabilities fit to work, charging people in social housing who happen to have a spare room extra money, providing government funded slave labour to the biggest and most unethical corporations currentlyactive in the UK.

There's definately a line to be drawn between Labour and the Tories, its the difference between inept and malicious.

In the last couple of years the tories have needlessly decimated every progressive welfare move we've made in the last half a century, all for the aim of creating a 2 tier society in which the rich can profit from the poor.

The only progressive economic reform under 'new' labour was the national minimum wage, if you can even call it progressive since it's very difficult to enforce. Blair almost spearheaded neo-liberalism after thatcher, privatising parts of the NHS for example. Universities have long been privatised. Old labour would never of done this, which is why i don't think there's much point in seperating the two. Economic liberalism is the norm on both sides.

The iraq war was pretty malious if you ask me. Siphoning off other people's oil for the benefit of big corporations, doesn't resemble socialism in the slightest.

The rich exploited the poor more than ever under blair. Corporation tax has never been so low since thatcher, the Tories have reduced it further since then.

Australia and not the UK. But it shows how just breeding more people for any reason is simply not the answer.

The UK really have to think of ways to combat this. Changing immigration policies so more white people are brought in is one way. ANd I am sure there is so many other ways too.
