 In spite of or because of it's perceived "racism"? (As an aside, what is the point of a democracy if the inherent racism of the demos is not reflected in policy? Can it really be called democracy?)


I am greatly enjoying the discomfort that the two mainstream political parties must be feeling. Decades of elitist consensus on the UK's ongoing EU membership seems about to be blown out of the water.

Make no mistake, the forthcoming EU elections are a referendum on Britain's ongoing EU membership in all but name.
if UKIP win, neither Labour or the Tories will have any credibility left on the subject. the people will have spoken.

I no longer care about any other political issue. If Hitler or Stalin came along and promised to get us out of this insane corrupt organization, they would get my vote. And herein is the danger for mainstream parties of wilfully ignoring the opinions of the masses.

I find it very telling that the mainstream media wants to discuss UKIP in terms of racism, rather than debate the actual issue at stake.

if only more americans could admit that they would gladly vote for stalin or hitler given the opportunity.

admitting it is certainly the first step.. by infinitera (4.00 / 1) #3 Sun Apr 27, 2014 at 10:59:06 PM EST
But, look at the Russians - nowhere closer to recovery.

Possibly has more meaningful freedom that the average Brit.

not disputing the facts just wondering... by bobdole (2.00 / 0) #10 Mon May 05, 2014 at 01:50:09 AM EST
Is it correct to assume that you then equate freedom with not being monitored - or is there more to it?
-- The revolution will not be televised.

The monitoring is a symptom of a greater malaise. by gmd (2.00 / 0) #11 Mon May 05, 2014 at 08:04:48 AM EST
 Not being monitored is one of hints a free person could expect.

The majority of the people don't want want UKIP as they have only 31% of the vote. It seems that the people don't like any of the political parties paticularly.

That system has had its day. Too bad that people are afraid of change, and focused on maintaining majority rule for their own parties. I've been happiest with the minority governments I've seen, along with coalitions.
