    It's also laughable to claim immigration is having a negative effect on the NHS. The backbone of the NHS has always been immigrant workers.

    Well it worked for the Lib Dems!

    I double-checked the username and realised he was perfectly serious.

    @smoggo maybe so, but that's the political system we have, so it is a wasted vote.

    Wow, that's quite a policy. It would be quite a spectacle to watch UKIP try and implement it!

    Craigy if you could vote on restoring a particular view, how portable would it be

    I'm sure UKIP will make those who claim wear a badge with "Scrounging scum" on it. ;)

    Doesn't have immigration a negative effect on everything? And aren't all problems caused by immigration and loss of family values?

    Chris, the fag kiosk at ASDA would be a war-zone if benefit recipients weren't allowed to buy ciggies.

    Suppose that's one way of spoiling your ballot.
    How so?
    Well obvious isn't is. Wasted vote, assuming you don't live in Brighton pavilion or Norwich south.

    I'll vote labour for as long as they retain links with the unions.
    The concept of a wasted vote is nonsensical. If you vote for the party/individual you want in Parliament then it is by definition not "wasted" because that's the point of it.

    By that logic it's basically not worth me voting at all since I live in a very safe Conservative constituency.

    Thoughtless comments like people saying "wasted vote" are one of the reasons we have such entrenched voter apathy in this country.
    I agree. Just because voting for something with no possible chance of winning is the same as writing down your vote on a piece of paper and eating it is no reason not to vote. Every vote counts. Even the ones that don't. That's the point of it.

    Pfft, he used an underscore. No buys.
  • Deleted user 24 September 2014 15:58:37
    I really have no idea who I'm going to vote for. I can't see a party that I really agree with on most things. It definitely won't be Labour that's all I can really say.

    UKIP par excellence. They bang on about being libertarian, but actually they're only concerned about People Like Us. Anyone else can fuck off and die, and probably should, so they don't make things uglier.

    I just hate policies that donít even effectively target the people theyíre trying to target. Same with Millibandís mansion tax. If you want to stop workshy lazy cunts from buying Lamberts and White Lightning then give them food vouchers for unemployment or something. I mean, thatís also deplorable, but at least youíre not depriving thousands of pensioners their sherry.

    Yeah it's a shame that referendum for AV failed, would have made voting matter so much more, it's silly to me that the "winner" of an election can be the one that the majority didn't vote for. I guess it was an opportunity to kick the Lib Dems for getting into bed with the Tories

    I don't see UKIP as racist at all.

    I see the other three political parties, who love their exclusive 2/3 party system not wanting to let anyone in, but that's about it.

    You see, I'm not 'left' or 'right', I pick the political party who I feel represents me from their manifesto, and I agree with a lot in the UKIP policies .

    I think that means you are most definitely right, what with UKIP being a right wing party and all that.
  • Deleted user 24 September 2014 17:09:30
    Most people agree with a fair amount of UKIP policies. It's fairly normal for right wing parties to bamboozle idiots into voting for them with promises of cheaper petrol and lower taxes and being more snide about the dark stuff like taking away the rights of minority groups, the disabled and pensioners.

    Without wishing to Godwin, that's basically how the Nazis got into power.
