UKIP has proved in two by-elections that it is no longer relevant to
Even before the referendum, Nigel Farage was incapable of winning an
election and he was always the main poster-boy. Now Nuttall has failed
to win in a vulnerable seat, Stoke, and in Copeland the UKIP votes were
less than for the LibDems.
All UKIP can ever do is take votes from the Tories and from Labour and
help one or other of them win a seat.
What is UKIP's purpose anyway? They don't have a team of brilliant
economists who can advise on the best terms for Brexit. They have
nothing to offer.
All my life, until last June I have been more or less non-political,
probably having witnessed as a young man, very little changed in my
life, whichever of the two parties held power.
I admired Thatcher for most of her reign, except for a couple of issues,
the main one for me, the abandonment of the Poll Tax after a bunch of
thugs in Toxteth decided to rip the place apart and in came Heseltine
with his ridiculous Council Tax.
When Farage came on the scene, it was refreshing to watch his brash
style when addressing the European Parliament. It soon became apparent
to me, just how arrogant a bunch of bastards the European masters had
become and decided we need to be away from these people.
Immigration isn't a huge problem for me but I do insist, if people want
to enjoy our way of life, our system, all we have good to offer, then
they must show some idea they want to integrate with us, though I would
not want to see their own culture killed off to appease in total.
muslims parading *My* streets advocating beheading their infidel hosts
is anathema to me! I often cannot believe how the hell these savages
have been allowed to get away with these sequels. I'm constantly told
there are millions of moderate muslims in the country. I'm so confused,
I barely know what moderate means anymore.
UKIP as far as I see, has been Nigel Farage and whether one loves him or
hates him he is a *Brit*. He set a goal with extraordinary high posts
but managed in his way, to get the ball clean over the top. Whatever
the tales that lead up to it all, UKIP got us the Referendum to decide
if we wanted in or out of the EU. Cue Mrs May, the woman in charge of
the governing party in the UK, "Brexit, is Brexit".
Every day the Remainers insist they haven't lost yet, even putting up
barmy, silly players to tell us we all all mentally retarded wanting to
leave the EU.
I would say, next month, when the government invokes Article 50, it will
be a case for UKIP, 'Job Is Done' and a fucking well done job at that,
but time now to hang up the holsters and announce their dissolution.
They will of course keep their seats in the EU parliament for the next
two years then disband with the dignity, if history will write them, the
victors, over near impossible odds.
Maybe Farage will be honoured in some way later, perhaps when Europe has
fallen and can watch from their coracles wishing they had, had the balls
to break up, when we did.
It'll be a long time before Farage is honoured. Gov totally sidelines him
and refuses to accept that without him there would have been no referendum
... or maybe that is the reason.
I just read elsewhere that Carswell blocked a knighthood for Farage!!!
