UKIP is ORDINARY PEOPLE seeking to bring POLITICAL REVIVAL for the UK! I’D like to HEAR from OTHERS!

The BBC has a great, positive report on the people who seek to change British politics through UKIP.  Here’s a couple of highlights: Local membership [in North Yorkshire] is now above 350, and branch secretary and betting shop manager Claire Palmer tells me she’s getting three or four enquiries a week from potential new members.

WONDERFUL UKIP IMMIGRATION VIDEO and FARAGE is GUNNING for LABOUR VOTERS, too!

Here is a wonderful, well-done video.  Lots of views from a diverse group of Britons.  Nothing shrill but I thought the point about how the  ECHR (read EU) keeps Britain from deporting foreigners who were convicted of crime is telling.  I’d play that up a lot.  Very effective.  It’s not NO yet but it’s getting […]

UKIP now SEEKING LABOUR VOTERS and WINNING SUPPORT in the LONDON FINANCIAL DISTRICT!

The amazing UKIP, something like the Tea Party of British politics, is now seeking support from Labour voters disenchanted with present policy: Nigel Farage is mounting a drive to recruit UKIP supporters from ‘white, working-class’ Labour voters who feel abandoned by Ed Miliband’s party. *** ‘With my non-political producer’s hat on, I thought it was […]

COULD UKIP, the BRITISH version of the TEA PARTY, REALIGN BRITISH POLITICS?

I have been writing for weeks about the remarkable rise of UKIP, the United Kingdom Independence Party.  Someone asked Tom White:  Why all the articles about British politics? I told Tom:  Tell ’em I have Aspergers! But really I am interested in UKIP because it is in many ways like the Tea Party in US […]

LABOUR is BEGINNING to FEAR UKIP in advance of 2015 GENERAL ELECTION!

The Daily Mail is reporting that both Conservatives and Labour want to keep UKIP out of the Leader’s debate in the 2015 General Election. The reason?  Simple fear that UKIP may take votes from Labour as well: Labour leader Ed Miliband wants to block the UK Independence Party from having a role in the TV […]

BRADFORD WEST by-election results NOT GOOD for UKIP or the UK!

I regret to report that UKIP finished a disappointing fifth in the Bradford West by-election with only just over three percent.  Here’s the tally from the Guardian: George Galloway (Respect) 18,341 (55.89%, +52.83%) Imran Hussain (Labour) 8,201 (24.99%, -20.36%) Jackie Whiteley (Conservative) 2,746 (8.37%, -22.78%) Jeanette Sunderland (Liberal Democrat) 1,505 (4.59%, -7.08%) Sonja McNally (UKIP) […]

UKIP takes a STRONG SECOND in local by-election in UK!

GREAT NEWS ON UKIP: FIRST MAYOR; CONTROL OF RAMSAY LOCAL COUNCIL; MORE VOTES THEN LAST ELECTION!

Some encouraging news on UKIP!  As my readers know (I see you waving in London!), I was concerned about the UKIP turnout in the May 5 local elections.   Turned out the party exceeded expectations – elected its first Mayor in Ramsey (this means they won control of the local counsel!) Lisa Duffy is a […]

COULD THE UKIP BE THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE IN THE UK?

A recent poll suggested that the UKIP could have a bright future in British politics.  The Observer poll reported here said that 48% of the British voters polled would vote for a non-violent, anti-racist “far right” political party. Huge numbers of Britons would support an anti-immigration English nationalist party if it was not associated with […]
