UKIP can be King Makers

Posted: April 23, 2013 in Politics

The hot topic today seems once again to be, “UKIP can’t win, so why vote for them”?

So how about this as a response?

You don’t have to win a majority to be King Makers. The party who holds the fulcrum, influences the direction of travel. That is, if there are two people on a see saw with a third standing in the centre, it is the third person who controls which end is up. So under no circumstances vote tactically to keep someone out. Vote for what you believe in, hopefully it will be UKIP, for this will most definitely not be a wasted vote.
The definition of a wasted vote is to support something you don’t agree with.

It’s time for real change, vote for it

Tory unease with Cameron increases

Posted: April 22, 2013 in Politics

“…… a sense that he isn’t the heir to Thatcher still haunts the
Conservatives: a poll of party members this weekend has found that a third
of them see him as the heir to Tony Blair – a title which he once claimed
for himself.” (A quote from Paul Goodman – Sunday Telegraph,  21/4/13).

Anyone who defines themselves in terms of other people is no leader. This country needs someone with vision and a sense of destiny coupled with the determination to follow it through. People will rally round and support this person.

UKIP are rallying these people.
The Tories are now attacking these same people but offer nothing.
Labour have just stated they will “out spend” the Tories, they’ve learned nothing.
The Lib Dems are anti democratic, as demonstrated by scuppering plans for the equalisation of boundaries. This from the party that squealed about PR for fairness, not heard about that for while have we?

So, who will you vote for?

Something that’s troubling me at the moment is this:
Some months ago it was reported that a number of Tory MP’s were considering defecting to UKIP. Initially I was heartened by this. It didn’t happen. I now think they are waiting to see how we do on May 2nd. If it happens then, they will be seen as opportunists trying to save their own skins. I for one do not want them.

I will welcome any that defect before the elections. I’ll despise any that do it after.

UKIP working with Labour?

Posted: April 7, 2013 in Politics

Nigel Farage has said that he see’s no problem with working with Labour. It seems to have ruffled a few UKIP feathers. So for what it’s worth, here is my view:-

UKIP do not have to work formally with Labour or anyone else. We just need to have the capacity to veto any initiative that is not in the country’s interest. The Lib Dems have shown they can be “King Makers”, UKIP can do the same without compromising our independence. It is highly likely that the 2015 election will produce another hung parliament. UKIP’s influence will be seen sooner than the established parties think.

UKIP have to be seen to be different, this is crucial.
