UKIP in local elections, WHY??
I have always seen local elections as diferent to national ones, you want the best person to run your local government, and you vote on local issues.
So why vote UKIP for local elections, are they going to take west oxfordshire out of europe?
it seems a strange protest vote, because if a local council is UKIP they will only have local issues, so should they refuse all local improvment schemes paid for by europe money?
refuse to house europeans in social housing,
Perosnally i am very confused by UKIPS political aims and policys, as they can promise what ever they want and people seem to believe them.

Have read the local manifesto of the UKIP.
OH MY GOD. apart from the list of 16 ways they would save you money, from which only 5 they could do as local government, the LEAVE EU AND SAVE 53 MILLION A DAY, onwards is just toshh.
have a look, its so Popualist its almost larghable.

The alternative is more of the same as we've had for the last 16 years from the conlablib EU party. It's long past time for a change Serge, before the country drowns in bullshit.

And therein this very short conversation is highlighted the issues.
No one is really convinced that Conservative or Labour will improve things much, and most of the proles can't/won't look beyond the surface of the UKIP policies to see the damage they would do / lack of understanding they would generate. Hence rather than support the two idiots, they take the third/fourth option.
Thatcher took us away from what UKIP propose, we were Greece like in stature before she mullered everything and grew the country into private enterprise albeit with a bludgeon. We now need to protect that enterprise and our business relationships - but it needs a more than a spineless leader to ensure we find appropriate ways other than running the bath with the plug out as we currently are.
The country needs a stout leader to give us a proud national identity and make us feel good about ourselves.

I struggle to work out where their voters are coming from. South Shields is an example - if you take the Tory loss & add it to the former BNP vote it's still doesn't get to the UKIP figure. It seems to indicate that they are also picking up LibDem & Labour voters too which I really hope isn't the case. Hopefully, it's more of a case of lefties not voting as it's a very safe seat & some previous non-voters coming out to make a statement.

It's populist stuff, but its hitting home as so many people in the country feel let down by all three main parties who are all saying the same things... But in a different order.
true Conservatists do not feel represented by DC who seems to be modelling himself on Bliar and instead of focussing on things that bother the majority, he's talking about Gay marriage and allowing vast sums to be spent on Windmills. As for Milliband, he is now presiding over the worst Lab percentage of the vote...ever! Even worse than Kinnock and Foot!
So along comes Farage, a bloke who likes a pint and a smoke, loves his country and talks sense. Pretty obvious, I'd say.
Whether they can build on this is another matter entirely.
