    Nigel Farage hails UKIPís 'remarkable' local election wins

    JUBILANT UKIP leader Nigel Farage has hailed his partyís local election success as ďremarkableĒ after they won nearly 150 council seats.

    The beaming politician sank a pint of English ale at a pub in Westminster as his party emerged as the biggest winner.
    They also surged to second place behind Labour in the South Shields parliamentary by-election, pushing the Lib Dems into SEVENTH.
    Mr Farage hailed an astonishing night of progress and claimed his eurosceptic party are in with a chance of securing a seat at Westminster.


    Election success ... Farage in Westminster



    With most votes counted, UKIP had 144 councillors ó a massive 136 more than when the same seats were last contested in 2009.

    It seems (agreeably, from the outside looking in) Mr Cameron can either recapture those voters, or be eaten alive as British politics balkanizes. Better start dusting off that In Or Out Referendum

    the ukip's are the eurosceptics

    put it this way, if you and your family were living in your 1000 square foot flat in cambridgeshire pulling down 35k as a family intervention partnership manager for the cambridge county council...

    would YOU choose to strengthen your economic obligations with greece and portugal and spain and italy and ireland and...

    or would you maybe wanna start staking out a little, y'know, independence

    the ukip's are a lotta tea with a little ows (occupy wall street)

    as a matter of fact, a direct descendant of the guy fawkes, mr phillip fawkes, won in the locals, south waterside, with 37%

    "the blood of rebellion runs in my veins"

    y'all recall the gunpowder plot in the very early stuart years

    yes, the ukip's are amped up and their issues are---inflation, immigration (muslims and gypsies, called roms or romani), debt, spending, taxes, wages...

    speaking of greece, portugal, spain, italy...

    what went wrong?

    not enough stimulus, not enough borrowing, not enough tax-the-rich?

    how can so many promises be made to so many people go so badly broken and unkept?

    keynes is kaput

    cheerio!

    Re: Nigel Farage hails UKIPís 'remarkable' local election wins

    So i'm ambivalent towards the UKIP party. I recognize the dangers that they pose to British society and also acknowledge and salute their anti-EU platform. I just don't think that UKIP is a party that should be in charge of the UK. Sure, it is a good party to have in order to keep bringing up the issue of deparing from the EU, but I do feel like all of the UK would be better off if they were an NGO, a powerful NGO, and not an actual political party...

    Protest votes. UKIP will struggle to gain more than a few, if any, seats in the general election under the first past the post system.
    Their policies are crazy anyway. Increasing spending on the armed forces by 40%, really??
