Really? I mean, Really? They do not even like being British? Christ on a fucking Bike...
without getting thrown in jail these days
And Plaid Cymru maybe, but there's no demand for that because it's shite.
"We're against Sharia Law taking over England"
It's not even happening though pal. Who are these people?
'and representing the English Democrats is John Race-Hayter....7 votes'
first thought when i read the ballot paper was "oh right someone got pissed off with Farage and wants to be more famous than him", which is pretty much accurate, but if you look at this page (Why we're different from UKIP) they actually look like a better version of UKIP.
"6. AIP believe in Swiss style public referendums. For example on HS2 on Capital punishment and on other subjects of public concern.
7. AIP would stop the HS2 rail project as it is unfit for purpose. The cost which will exceed £100 billion and is not justified by any business case. An upgrade of the existing network is necessary."
'AIP will not ban members for 100 years for telling the truth. Unlike UKIP'
is that about gays causing floods or how Lenny Henry should go to Africa then?
Also the truth is always relative depending on who you ask. For example, it might be different for Nigel Farage than it is for Lab/Con politicians upset that their guaranteed position in Westminster might be under the slightest bit of threat.
don't know what "THE TRUTH" was.
in any case, I'm not pledging my support for these lunatics, just saying after a quick scan they might be less worse than UKIP
supporting a party who had a religious nut war criminal in charge less than a decade ago, one happy to trample over the poorest in society, or the antisemitic anti-science party.
is a reference to Labour, and the second to the Conservatives, but I'm a little stumped on the third one.
But either way, given I expressed no support for a particular party, I'm not sure what relevance it has to anything I said.
since UKIP seem to be on track to combine absolutely all of them into some party of mega-douchery
We'll probably never know.
If they truly don't represent change, then what's the worst that can happen? Same old shit? The position most voters are advocating anyway.
but that's what I don't get about that line of criticism towards them - if there really is that little to separate them from the current status quo, why such a hostile reaction from some quarters?
and there's a good argument that they will damage UKIP at the election as a result of this :')
Either way, I think they're definitely the party UKIP voters would make fun of
I think they need to fire their ad agency
and just start repeating them over and over, or resorting to ones like "I'm English!"
lived where I worked on a newspaper, so we quite often used to do pieces on him. From what I remember, he was quite a chill guy, seemed to be doing it just to make a point that if Scotland and Wales got parliaments (or assemblies), then England deserved one too. Wouldn't surprise me if their ideas has morphed somewhat... wasn't the disastrous mayor of Doncaster an English Democrat?
i guess similar to what happened to UKIP? though i don't know...a lot of parties get their ideas changed and evolved* i guess
*probably not the greatest word choice.
Thought it was an England World Cup song
We will to be elect in the year of 2014.
