    What an incredibly naive thing to say from an otherwise decent poster. Calling ukip voters low in intelligence is cheap and competely unfounded.

    Actually I agree with MB. I'm yet to personally meet a UKIP supporter who hasn't been an utterly uninformed nob

    Worth looking at UKIP policy on NHS. And on holidays for employees.

    Re: European Elections, UKIP Tops British Polls

    I know that hit a sore spot Roy, but I am yet to find more than a handful of ukip supporters than can put together a rational analysis or their policies or a defense of the holes therein.

    It's never anything other than that immigration being at fault for everything.

    To be fair, you are one of the most articulate.

    But I genuinely don't believe, based on experience, ukip supporters know more than one policy that isn't "stop immigration"

    Re: European Elections, UKIP Tops British Polls

    I'm married to a non EU citizen and she did not have any recourse to public funds (inc job seekers allowance) whilst on temporary leave to remain.

    After 3 years she was eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain - which requires passing life in UK test, proving income and other domicile criteria.
    (Not to mention a load of money!)

    Immigration is NOT a cheap or easy thing. Its not some holiday to 'sponge off the state'.
    Unfortunately many people get caught up in the propaganda to see the reality.

    Re: European Elections, UKIP Tops British Polls

    Further to the above, and I know many won't like this, but of the many immigrants I have met and worked with (Americans, Aussies, Canadians, Europeans, etc etc) - I have found them all to be hard working and to make a large contribution and effort to be part of the UK.
    Something I think many Brits may want to consider instead

    Re: European Elections, UKIP Tops British Polls

    People want to punish Europe and Westminster for democratic failures that have been building up for several decades.

    Ukip facilitates a protest to address these concerns head on.

    Not much more to it.

    So what will you do about it? That was the way the electorate voted, and that is that. All this talk smacks of sore loser. Untill labour can offer something then it won't change.

    i think there is, i think generally, people are stupid

    its not apathy or a considered political statement, its laziness, the general attitude amongst the british (of which sadly i am ashamed to be) is "**** that, someone else will do it, the world owes me a living"
