Note that he uses the term LibLabCon, which is pretty much copyright BNP.

Oi,oi, oi, I had to wipe flecks of foam off the screen reading that load of old cobblers.

Funny that on just abou everything, "the three main parties are extremely vulnerable on this issue".

Totally moonbat.

Census 2011:
The 2011 census showed that 36.7 per cent of Greater London's population were born outside the UK
UKIPPer:
We must take care not to become a minority in our own country, as is the case in London already, where over 50% of the population is born outside the UK
That's him taking the Mail's skewed and insulting headline figures (conflating foreign-born and non-white British) at face value. Nasty, racist cunt. Or thick, gullible cunt. Cunt, either way.

Twitter seems to be reporting that UKIP have disowned him, despite him bigging himself up as a mate of Fargle's.

Guess what? This isn't even nearly true.
100,000 Egyptians and 100,000 Brazilians (in London)
This is the best bit.
Refuse asylum to asylum seekers if they had a nearer safe country to flee to. For example, a Sudanese fleeing to Britain should flee to Egypt or Ethiopia rather than to Britain.
Should they? What if there's a plane to Britain? Do they have to walk to Egypt instead? Or tell the pilot to stop in Cairo?

This is him on supporters of HS2/ building on the Green Belt/ wind energy/ God knows what else:
They support them for confused reasons: ‘an expansion of construction activity will provide jobs’ (but for Slovaks and Poles); ‘We need to cut 40 minutes off the journey to Birmingham’ (while telling us that we should travel more by bike); ‘We only make exemptions from building regulations for social housing and affordable housing because it’s much cheaper to build social housing on the Green Belt’ (the point of the Green Belt is that it’s not supposed to be built on at all, except for agriculture); ‘Wind farms provide an alternative source of green energy’ (extremely inefficiently, with huge subsidies that are not affordable).
I like the "Slovaks and Poles". Funny, they seem to lower wages without lowering costs. Quite an economic achievement, isn't it?

Love the bit about HS2 and encouraging people to cycle to work. I guess he needs to realise that there's a bit of a difference between cycling a mile or two across town to the office, and 135 miles (unless your surname's Wiggins or Pendleton), and that it's a bit tricky to carry heavy freight on the back of a Raleigh Chopper.

But otherwise, deeply unpleasant.

compulsory abortion when the foetus is detected as having Downs, Spina Bifida or similar syndrome which, if it is born, could render the child a burden on the state as well as on the family. CLARIFICATION TO AVOID CONFUSION AND MISREPRESENTATION: I do not, and UKIP does not, endorse any of these ideas: they are suggestions of matters for the review body to properly consider in light of the stated desire of all political parties to reduce the national debt.
Jeez! How can anyone even think of compulsory abortion?
hey nige! think T4..er..tiergartenstrasse 4, yeh? er..euthenasia, yeh? er..you're married to a fucking kraut. ask her... call by the clubhouse* to let us know how you got on.

I had to. I mailed him. Asked him about his transport policy and said that his manifesto deserved to go viral.

Will let you know if there's any reply.

Timbo wrote:There is an awful lot of bollocks being thrown around in the debate about Norway. Oil money (apart from direct employment in the oil industry) has had zero effect on the Norwegian economy. The money all went into a wealth fund, which is expressly prohibited from even investing it within the country. They're terrified of boom and bust, and are generally very suspicious of pouring big money into the private sector from the state in lavish projects.

The idea that the right are now holding up one of the most socialist and egalitarian nations in the world as an example of untethered capitalism is astonishing.
When you think about nothing else but nationalism when you wake up in the morning, you are prepared to hang your hook on contradictory models to further you aims.

The usually left of centre Alex Salmon is just as bad and advocates the neo liberal flat tax model of the Baltic states for Scotland from time to time.

The thing is Geoffrey Clark is no outrider within UKIP in terms of being a batshit, vindictive, dim, and nasty cocksocket. There are many, many, more - quite a few of them candidates.

How Emmett thinks that his party can establish credibility with wingnuts like thison board is simply beyond me.

I'm pretty sure it's not usual to put your crappy poetry in your political manifesto.

Nice insight from that chap's manifesto here:
Visitors including tourists must be refused entry to the UK without health and repatriation insurance (apart from EU citizens currently, which is a concession that will change after we leave the EU)
An insight not just into his mind, but into his local party. Looking at the arrangements Switzerland, Norway and Iceland have, it's reasonable to conclude that it "won't change after we leave the EU". It shows that they haven't even asked the most basic questions about what leaving the EU would be like.

They don't even pursue their single issue properly.

The idea people coming for business meetings should get insurance for the four hours they're in a meeting room near Heathrow is quite amusing. Way to counter those fears about the Chinese preferring Schengen too.

Mailities are conflicted.
Of course all the slurs and misrepresentation will become common place now. UKIP are wading ahead in the polls and the bullies are getting twitchy. Must make them look like tyrants and blacken them in order to prevent a shock at the next election.

What slurs or misrepresentations? It was his manifesto.
Just goes to show that ukip are beginning to be a force to be reckoned with as this is the second media attempt to make them look bad. I don't expect to see this comment being posted though.

- Me, UK, 18/12/2012 19:44 62
Media attempts at looking bad? UKIP members are doing a fine job themselves.
FORMER UKIP CANDIDATE! Glad to see UKIP have done the right thing by expelling him.

Only because the media rightly outed him. Why does the party willingly accept people with these views to begin with?

This is the stuff he commits to paper to run for office. What do you reckon he says after a few pints?

Even voluntary abortions can be traumatic. Has he even considered the effect on the woman of a compulsory one? Or on the medical staff who terminated the pregnancy? Assuming you could find anyone prepared to do it.
