Latest 'Stand Up To UKIP' Leaflet Encouraging Public Disorder Against UKIP

Trying to repress a political parties democratic right to stand is anti-democratic whether you like them or not. By doing such 'Stand Up To UKIP' should declare itself an anti-Democratic organisation.

Why can't groups and organisations of this sort let people decide for themselves. If they don't want want to vote for UKIP they can decide for themselves without being strong-armed by a organisation that claims to be anti-Fascist, yet exhibits fascist traits.

'Stand Up To UKIP' claim UKIP are "racist". Yet the definition of racist is: "a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another."
I have never seen content or information that defines UKIP in such a way. I have never seen anything from UKIP disclosing a ) Britain is a race (granted it's my belief that their is a strong British race and culture that exists and my saying so is not racist) b ) Britain is superior to others c ) a particular race as a whole should be prevented from entering the UK.

In fact much the opposite. UKIP believe anyone from any Nation, believing in any religion coming from any ethnic background should be allowed to enter the country if they have the right skills to offer.
UKIP are strong supporters of a reconnection with the Commonwealth, an entity that was cast adrift by New Labour under Gordon Brown when he signed the Lisbon Treaty.

The Commonwealth were always the first people to come to the UK's aid at times of need. See World War 2 history. Yet we cast them adrift so casually, it is something I as a British person have been ashamed of ever since Mr Brown did it.
Let's not forget that the Commonwealth encapsulates a third of the Worlds population. The majority of which is black or Asian and doesn't hold English as their first language.

It's a question of numbers not race. It never has been a question of race.
If UKIP are "racist" as the 'Stand Up to UKIP' organisation claim to be, then maybe one of the organisations members or the organisation hierarchy itself could highlight a racist UKIP policy?
You will have trouble though. They don't have any?!

UKIP have no such policy to introduce a flat rate tax as 'Stand Up To UKIP' have claimed. So that is a lie.
I fear that they are reading from the same dishonest hymn-sheet that the Labour Party do. Singing off the same utter nonsense that they do about past policies from a utterly abandoned 2010 manifesto written under a different party leader to that of Nigel Farage, policies that have never been mentioned by UKIP or points discussed by UKIP members that have never and would never be brought into action as a formal policy in its manifesto.

UKIP members have talked about a flat rate tax which absorbed all different taxes into a flat rate tax but this has not been confirmed as policy and would be cheaper than the current rate of tax.

UKIP have also announced that they would have no income tax for those on the minimum wage. However this organisation hasn't mentioned that? I wonder why?!

UKIP have consistently said that they neither want to privatise the NHS or charge patients. So this again is a lie. This lie which has been discussed by the Labour Party as a current UKIP policy as recently as last week in a Labour List article written by Polly Billington (article written about such by myself on my blog a couple of days ago) has been rubbished even on UKIP's website due to the volume at which it was being told. It has also been labeled as a "current UKIP policy" by Labour Party Councilors, MP's and activists in public and in formal meetings with organisations such as Unison in a blatant attempt to mislead the electorate.

UKIP are a Libertarian Party. In other words they encourage people to discuss, debate and put forward ideas. They have a strong policy of Direct Democracy leading to Referendums about Regional and International issues. With such open debate you are bound to get a wide range of opinions and stances about a whole manner of things. An idea or statement does not make Party Policy. (ie: Paul Nuttall on the NHS)

The leaflet then goes on to say that UKIP has made "poisonous lies about Immigrants and Muslims". What lies does the leaflet refer to?
This accusation has been made without any context, substance of evidence? It has just left people to assume it is true.

The leaflet further rants; "In the run up to the European elections UKIP's mask slipped". - How? The 'Stand Up To UKIP' leaflet makes a statement as fact and has again not actually provided any evidence.
We all know a limited number of UKIP members have made questionable comments, however it is the action taken that makes the difference.
UKIP have a Zero Tolerance attitude towards bigoted comments and have taken action against such people.
Meanwhile a signatory of the 'Stand Up To UKIP' organisation has made bigoted comments and no action has ever been taken other than a flat apology being forced from her by her Party leader.

I of course refer to Diane Abbott, who has made her dislike for UKIP abundantly clear on a multitude of occasions.

Diane Abbott further racism

In fact multiple representatives of other parties have not had action taken against them by their respective parties for making highly disgusting comments.

According to 'Stand Up To UKIP', UKIP are also a party of "bigots, sexists Islamophobes and homophobes". - Really? Well as I have said above people who have made such comments have been kicked out.
But if we are being honest, that isn't what it's about is it regards the attitude from the people who operate 'Stand Up To UKIP'?

When you read the retweets done by the 'Stand Up To UKIP' twitter page, and the links to articles posted on their Facebook pages, you come to understand the deeper reason for this organisation and its actions.

There is a MASSIVE level of support for the Labour Party even going as far as to retweet secondary articles made by The Labour List. This  shows that along with the likes of the Conservative Party who dredged up information on any UKIP member or supporter it could lay its hands on and pass it to the media and other parties, they are attempting to damage UKIP in any way they can with a ridiculous level of resources combined.
Remember this being done whilst no similar respective spotlight is shone at any of the other parties. Not to mention other supposed anti Fascist groups like 'Hope Not Hate' and the 'UAF' who are VERY selective with who they attack. Basically UKIP and UKIP only, after all their aren't any sexists, homophobes or racists at any of the other parties.

A concerted united attack is being placed on UKIP due to a politically elite agenda that much we can all be certain of.

UKIP are the only party who reject former Far Right members from joining whilst the Labour Party have accepted known BNP members and a Nazi with open arms. Many members and supporters have also expressed what I myself consider to be a terrifying anti-Semitic agenda towards Israelis and Jews in general going as far as to make highly offensive and racist comments on Social Networking sites, to be involved in race-hate rallies and of course as we have seen over the last 5 weeks, 5 separate Labour Party councils raising the Palestinian flag in support of Palestine. A nation that elected a "terrorist organisation", as defined by Ed Miliband who want to "wipe all Jews out of the middle-east" or words to that effect.
This is logical proof that if any party has more questionable elements it is Labour, and if any party out there is consistently expressing racist views and accepting racist members, it is the Labour Party.

This entire leaflet is both disingenuous and quite frankly pathetic.

It is my humble opinion that 'Stand Up To UKIP' and its members negative rhetoric towards UKIP and UKIP members who are decent hard working normal people is as inflammatory as the rhetoric put out by the Nazi Party in the 1930's.
If someone has a UKIP badge on their blazer then they must be "racist, homophobic, sexist and or Islamophobic" is this organisation and other so called (left wing) anti-Fascist organisations attitude.

It couldn't be because people agree with UKIP's policies which are none of the above (ie: "racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic etc...")

It can't be because people are concerned about the impact of mass uncontrolled immigration that we have experience especially in the south-East since Gordon Brown (Labour) signed the Lisbon Treaty.

It can't be because people are concerned about the growing reliance of food banks.

It can't be because of the housing shortage which whether you like to admit it or not is not helped by a growing population (immigration).

It can't be because people are struggling to find hospital places, educational places or other services. 

It can't be because people are upset about not finding work having been undercut by laborers from the continent.

It can't be about the ever increasing energy costs.

It can't be because they actually like UKIP's tax policies that will help the young and get people back into work with common-sense incentives.

It can't be because they have had their jobs impacted on by our EU membership such as the fishing industries.

It can't be because they have had their jobs taken away from them by the political elite having been working in industry that has been around for hundreds of years (ship building): Portsmouth etc... and don't believe any political change by the recognised parties will make any difference to them.

It can't be because they are fed up of the red tape and legislation they trip up on by being in the Union.

It must be because they are bigoted.

I would suggest the people who form such organisations to repress democracy are the groups who are bigoted and fascist.

As has already been highlighted and proven. UKIP have members from all ethnic backgrounds, multiple nationalities, equal measure of males and females (compared to the other parties which don't), people from various religions and have members who are gay.

All this pathetic campaign proves is that certain organisations with political agendas are desperate for UKIP not to be taken seriously.
All this support for parties like Labour by retweeting their misguided articles proves is that these fake anti fascist organisations are supporting the political elite.

'Stand Up To UKIP' raise the matter of the French National Front.
Why?! UKIP have nothing to do with them, have no links and no similarities. This is why we wanted to have nothing to do with that racist mob!

All the organisation has done has done by name-dropping this group randomly into the leaflet is try to make UKIP guilty by association of being on the same piece of paper as this daft Party in France.

As for UKIP getting a high portion of media coverage. For the record as they were the only party that represented the "Out" vote for the EU, and it was a European Election I would say it was pretty fair that they be given a reasonable amount of coverage.
Point me out another anti-EU party of the left wing variety with the kind of infrastructure and popularity UKIP has and I will willingly concede a bias media coverage to UKIP.

UKIP also at the time had a high number of MEPs and polls showed the party would gain a high number of MEPs in the elections.

Before I sign off I just felt like I should highlight another aspect of complete stupidity from this (above)  leaflet.
In the first paragraph it reads "UKIP is a right wing, racist, populist party"...
In the final 3 lines of the "Bigots" section it reads "The lesson of history is that we need unity against the far right and racism"...

So which is it? "Right Wing" or "Far Right"? Even the people who wrote this stupid brochure don't seem to be able to make up their minds!

If the people who wrote this nonsense actually put as much time into their own parties. They might actually do some constructive good for this country!
However they continue to plod on with the baseless accusations, misleading rhetoric and encouraging violence.

How many attacks have their been by UKIP members or supporters on foreign Nationals?
Answer: None.

How many attacks have their been by supposed anti-Fascists on UKIP members, supporters and general members of the public who just so happened to get in the way at the wrong time?
Answer: Loads.

You are being spoken to by one of them.
A disabled UKIP member who was prevented physically my freedom of speech and to assemble at two separate UKIP meetings by 'UAF', 'Hope Not Hate' and 'SWP' activists.

If you back this campaign you are every bit as "fascist" as you claim UKIP to be.

I don't expect this message to be up for long or my posting privileges to extend much longer to the Swansea Stand Up To UKIP statement which is where I am posting this comment.
After all I was blocked from the main Facebook group for posting something similar some time back. (freedom of speech and the right to reply is something false anti-Fascists don't like you see).

But don't worry. I am posting this on my blog as well. Which will be forwarded in tweet format to other 'supposed anti-fascist' groups and UKIP pages.

Response To Another Left Wing Hatchet-Job In The Huffington Post 15/08/2014

"Huffington Post Article - Nigel Farage Accuses of 'Planning Attack' As Ukip Leader Confirms Commons Tilt"

The only people who have accused the BBC of being biased towards UKIP are left wingers who have had pause due to UKIP's surge forwards in development.

Anyone with half a brain can see the media bias towards UKIP.

Every non-formal announcement article mentioning UKIP is negative (and even the formal ones have a negative undertone or mention something negative). UKIP are the only party that has members jump right to the front page for non-stories.

Take the Bill Etheridge non-story the other day for instance where the media tried to make out that he was "praising Hitler" when in reality he was just talking about him being a potent public speaker in manner.

Some weeks ago we had the story about Nikki Sinclaire and her expenses fraud charge. Let's forget for a second that Miss Sinclaire had spent the last year providing anti-UKIP headlines for the Huffington Post to feed off of. She had not been a member of the party in nearly 5 years?! Yet the media spent as much time as they could trying to reconnect her to the party as they possibly could like she had never left.

If that wasn't bad enough, at the time a Labour Party Councilor was being tried in court having been charged with abusing a little boy.

This story didn't even leave its regional newspaper, yet a story about a former UKIP member was daily news for a good 3-4 days!

During the European Elections and Council Elections, the media tried to focus on UKIP's General Election policies or members who had caused them minimal embarrassment. Completely ignoring other party members who had been charged fire arms offenses (Tories) or racism (Labour). Yet the media lapped up the cross party muck raking as if a pig in a puddle of mud and food. Fully knowing that the focus at the time should be it's local policies and European Election policies. But try as they might, the media wouldn't let them speak about the things that mattered. Regardless they got the European Elections won and won double the number of Council seats that were expected much to the utter horror of the media and other parties.

As for the number of people who complained about UKIP getting to much publicity and other claiming they got negative publicity.

I don't think many fellow UKIPers will mind me saying that compared to the likes of Labour and the Tories our support is far smaller.

The difference though is after/during the elections UKIP supporters were working for the party trying to maximize a much unexpected result.

Whilst supporters of other parties and members of other parties were going around spreading lies about UKIP policies that didn't exist (Labour), putting out fear stories about jobs being lost if we left the EU (Lib Dems) and just generally digging through normal people's twitter and Facebook accounts that were linked to UKIP in the hopes of finding any small piece of information to discredit the party (Tories). This information of course made readily available by any of the other parties and or the media.

So yes. I am sure a lot of sour people will have complained about UKIP getting publicity. 1000 people? That's what? Twice the number of people who voted in my small ward in the local council by election recently in which there was a 29% turnout (oh and UKIP won by the way!)

Don't expect me to lose any sleep at night over a handful of sour-faced staunch Labour and Green Party supporters who have nothing better to do than trying and hinder a already unbalanced electoral process.

But hey, rather than actually accept that all Parties got equal airtime even if obviously biased, the Huffington Post choose to highlight that a channel editor at the BBC News was sacked from coverage of the elections after tweeting a derogatory comment about the party.

The comment in question from the person concerned mentioning wishing that UKIP supporters and voters would "drown in acid".

Why they have raised this individual in this article as if it should never have happened is beyond me!

"More than 70 complaints were made claiming a bias against the Labour party, though there were absolutely no complaints of a bias in favour of Labour."

So 70 people made complaints of bias against Labour, whilst their were no complaints of bias in favour of Labour?

That's out of an estimated 7.8 million viewers who watched the Council Election and European Election coverage?

Why is the Huffington Post even referring to these figures. They are embarrassing.

I am willing to bet that the BBC gets more complaints about episodes of Eastenders than bias towards Election coverage.

Hell I am willing to bet that more people take to social media websites to bemoan bias in Election coverage than actually taking the time to ring up the BBC to complain about their programming.

"UKIP party members have enjoyed ample airtime on BBC shows, in particular on Question Time where Farage became "a usual suspect" in the run up to the elections."

He is the party leader.

As left-wingers gleefully conclude. Up until about a year and a half ago. UKIP was very much a one man band.

UKIP were the sole party out their objecting to UK membership of the European Union, and so it was very hard for a person to be put forward representing the party to speak on the show.

The last year however has been very different.

A blossoming range of fantastic public speakers and representatives of UKIP are available for BBC Question Time and other programs.

Diane James, Louise Bours, Suzanne Evans, Janice Atkinson, Jane Collins, Margot Parker, Patrick O'Flynn, Roger Helmer, Tim Aker, Steven Woolfe, David Coburn, Paul Nuttall, John Agnew and Amjad Bashir to name a few.

We shall have to see if the Huffington Post, BBC or other news cooperation's will actually approach these spokespeople to take part in their articles and programming.

As for any comparison to the Green Party. I fear the Huffington Post quip of "Farage has appeared on the show's panel at least 16 times since 2009 - more than the entire Green party, which has only appeared 11 times" is a bit misleading.

As the Huff's post has highlighted, Farage was primarily the only rep of UKIP who appeared on the show. So it wasn't the "Nigel Farage show", it was UKIP represented by Nigel Farage.

So UKIP 16 appearances since 2009 and Green's 11.

The UK Independence Party has a vastly higher number of Councilors than the Green's in the UK.

UKIP having 370 and the Green's having 160.

I know the Green's and others like to put forward the argument that the Green's have an MP and UKIP do not. But using that logic should the laughably titled 'Jewish hating' "Respect Party" be allowed vast numbers of reps on Question Time and other BBC programming when they have 1 solitary MP in George Galloway?

How many Councilors do they have? Yep that's right. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada!

So the argument that a party should have more representation than another party because they have one solitary MP is a joke!

Especially when you consider the state that particular City is in, and how much the Party are loathed by it's residents.

The only unfortunate thing is it's looking increasingly likely that Labour are going to take the Green's place in the hot seat as far as a Brighton MP is concerned. As much as I loathe Natalie Bennett's "anything to the right of us hating" attitude, and how they'd have little old people freezing to death in their homes due to expensive energy costs from the expensive tax payer funded energy constructions. Not to mention the apparent large contingent of anti-democratic Pseudo-Anti-Fascists who attack UKIP members whilst out peacefully canvassing for elections and attacking disabled and elderly people trying to attend UKIP meetings. This humble blogger knows that there are a few decent folk in the Green Party who have the best interests of the country at heart.

As much as I loathed Caroline Lucas ganging up with the other panelists on Question Time, I can respect that she has done a decent job in Brighton only to have been let down by some rather questionable Council level management resulting in comments about our armed forces (leading to a Councilor getting sacked) and rubbish piling up in the streets of London.

I really do dread to see what would/could and will most probably happen to my local City if the Labour Party got their hands on the Council and MP position.
I have seen recently first hand the mess that has been made by Labour of Crawley, and expect something much worse to happen in Brighton.

The Huff's post then goes on to make a further moan about UKIP "partly strongly featuring on the programme".
Now considering UKIP were the voice of Out (EU) and other parties (Tories, Lib Dems, Labour and Green's) all represent the voice of In. I don't think it is terribly unacceptable that the Out voice be heard in the lead up to an election that represents the In/Out question and referendum we will likely never get.

The fact UKIP won the European Elections reflects that people are unhappy, and as much as people will argue it was a "protest vote", latest polling figures of people who voted for UKIP in the European Elections shows that a pretty sizable chunk of that vote will follow UKIP to the General Election and beyond.

"Patrick O'Flynn, the director of communications, Diane James and Louise Bours also appeared on the show." did Roger Helmer... Whoops guess the Huff's post forgot him.

"Bours became a social media sensation after going head-to-head with "football's philosopher king" in one of the most surreal political debates in modern history."

...that would be when Mr Barton made a truly sickening sexist comment that only got slammed by Miss Bours and a member of the audience?
Bumblebee was left a stuttering wreck as per usual whilst the other panelists were more concerned about their public profiles.

I personally was glad Miss Bours put Barton in his place. She is not afraid to object to things that should not be allowed. Be it in politics or in the social speaking context.

It's truly a shame that more in politics are not like her.

"A petition calling for Farage to stop being given "disproportionate airtime on Question Time," received more than 2,000 signatures at the time."

Over a thousand people have signed a HM Government petition to Grant UKIP new seats in the House of Lords.
30,092 people signed a HM Government petition for UKIP to be involved in any Television debates in 2015. Wonder if we will see that on the Huffington Post anytime soon?

But hey if we are going to judge the scope of online Petitions such as the one outlined by this article, which essentially self-judges the amount of airtime UKIP are allowed to get. Granted I am pretty sure the amount of airtime UKIP get goes to a independent body owing to the agreement recently signed about the amount of airtime parties get, let's take a look at some of the other petitions currently out RE: UKIP.

We have a petition on being run by the Liberal Democrats called 'Back Our Campaign To Stop UKIP' which has been signed by 717 supporters.
That's right, a petition run by a democratically elected political party, to stop another democratically elected political party's right to exist?!

Democracy in the United Kingdom has never looked so stupid! Yet they wonder why their support has nosedived with initiatives like that!

We have a Petition proposed by someone to do something about the blatantly misleading impersonation party 'An Independence From UK Now' party, which was rejected. Remember this party is reported to have cost UKIP 2 MEP's in the European Elections and a host of spoiled ballot papers when people have been concerned about voter turnouts.

At the same time as this a petition has been allowed by HM Government petitioning for 'Anti EU political parties like UKIP should be banned running in EU elections' saying that people who get sworn into European Parliament should vow to "solemnly support European Union and will work for the benefit of Union and for it's citizen's interest."

Now correct me if I am wrong but didn't a group of soldiers do that to a certain political leader from 1934 to 1945?

"Thousands asked the Executive Editor for the BBC, Hayley Valentine, to "not normalise his vile politics." - says the Huffington Post.

Who the Hell defines "vile politics"? Does this country have such little regard for itself that it denounces a National Election victory of that as being "vile politics"?

By posting this statement, does the Huffington Post denounce anyone ever voting for UKIP as being that of someone pursuing "vile politics"?

"One backer wrote The BBC has "no business giving Mr Farage disproportionate airtime. Balanced coverage is at the heart of the public service broadcasting mission of the BBC." - The Huffington Post goes on to say.

"One backer"?
Farage didn't get "disproportionate airtime"? Prior the European Elections, as highlighted above, other UKIP party representatives were the ones who took to the media to answer media queries.

In fact I would say that in the last 4-6 weeks we have seen very little of Mr Farage, and as highlighted above, other party reps have taken to the stage.

"In good news for fans of Farage's frequent appearances on the BBC, he has today announced he wants to stand in the South Thanet seat in next year's general election - so he should be back on our screens soon."

We also have Suzanne Evans who also announced she would be standing for Shrewsbury & Atcham, Tim Aker Thurrock, Neill Hamilton Boston and Skegness, Patrick O'Flynn Cambridge and others... Yet the Huffington Post is the one focusing on Nigel Farage?

...and then as usual. The article finishes off with "The Highs and Lows of UKIP, mostly focusing on the lows of course!

My Response To Polly Billington Dishonesty RE: UKIP Policies and Attitudes

Article in question:


It really is quite appalling the level to which the Labour Party will consistently lie about UKIP policies to try and willingly and knowingly lie to the electorate.

This is not good politics to win people back onboard who feel disenfranchised with politics, this is even more deception which will surely push people away.

It is bad enough that Labour continued to spread the same lies about UKIP policies over the course of the European Elections and Council Elections. But to now continue lying about UKIP policies that have already been said not to be current or confirmed is an utter disgrace.

"UKIP is peddling simplistic answers that we should counter: not by spending our time pointlessly factually correcting people, but by having a conversation based on hope."

Do not confuse common sense policies with that of "simplistic answers", it gets really rather boring.
Books of policies, legislation and laws for the different segments of society are one of many elements of politics and law that leave people not wanting to have anything to do with modern politics.

UKIP have done and will continue to outline logical well thought out policies that people across all the parties will be able to read as of next month in total (September).

Don't believe the rhetoric coming from this individual.
Fine if you don't want to believe UKIP or want to question policies then do so.
But don't do it before they have even been announced.
Remember no party has released a manifesto as yet for the General Elections of 2015.

"UKIP’s politics of despair is based on a zero-sum games of jobs, public services and homes – where the country doesn’t just freeze but turns the clock back."

No. UKIP's policies are that to which we would like to make a better life for people.
Take people away from the need for food banks.
Take people away from unemployment and being reliant on the state.
Take away the fear that there will not be enough roofs around to shelter people.
Take away the fear that a jobs market will not be inundated with unskilled migrants taking those few jobs that remain, forcing down wages and sidestepping wage laws.

UKIP want to offer people on the minimum wage no income tax.
A fantastic idea that no other party has been able to match.

80% of our population want reform in the immigration system.

Both Labour and the Tories promised us reasonable rates of migrants entering the country and both have failed miserably to keep promises.

Whole areas have been swallowed up by mass immigration. As taboo as Labour have made it to say out load. It is a fact that there has been a impact culturally.

I myself live on the south coast and the number of people who are non-English speaking in my highstreet is alarming.

"Or, depending who they are talking to, would introduce a flat tax rate for all" - Lie. UKIP have no such policy.
"charge you for your GP" - Another lie. UKIP have no such policy and have on multiple occasions refuted this repeated lie from Labour:
"and abolish many of our hard-fought-for employment rights like paid holidays and maternity leave. Like the Tories only more so." - Again utter nonsense. Don't confuse a repatriation of law with abolition of employment laws.
Should we leave the EU we would need to repatriate laws and legislation.

"More and better jobs" - These would be the same jobs that Labour handed away when they signed the Lisbon Treaty without the publics say so.
Yet now they want to offer us jobs back?!
At least UKIP have a plan to create small and medium businesses. Encourage large businesses back to the UK with a decrease in expensive legislation, expensive energy costs and expensive tariffs.

"homes" - As much as people will moan at me for saying it immigration has had a impact on the housing market. Wage constriction and unemployment have had an impact on people's ability to buy houses and get onto the employment ladder.
Yet Labour boast they will sort this all out after creating the mess in the first place!

We need to build a house every 7 minutes to keep up with demand. Labour favour building on the green belt and continue to allow people to flood in from the continent. That means huge swaths of beautiful British countryside going the way of concrete and tarmac and rising energy costs with a higher requirement on energy.

"and quality public services is the right mantra that will build on our cost-of-living message" - This is the same Labour that left the NHS with a £60 billion black hole!
The same Labour that left the treasury without a penny piece, with the "sorry no money left" note left in the draw as a tongue in cheek joke.
The same Labour who dumped half a million people a year on the education system health services and other public services.

How dare the person who wrote this article talk down to UKIP as having no answer when we are giving answers right now to problems created by the Labour Party!

"But we also need to show we “get it” when it comes to the disjuncture between the risks the world poses and way our current system protects people – or not." - You mean like your policy of giving the British people a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty and an In Out vote if their is a further transfer of legislation to the EU.
Saying this when you know there is a further transfer of legislation in 2016 which involves handing the EU a Vito vote which means that if the people have a referendum and vote out, all it would take to Vito that vote is for 16 of 27 other EU member states to say no and the people's vote will be ignored and article 50 will not be able to be processed.

Shame on you. Shame on you that you would lie so openly to the electorate.

"Rachel Reeves’ suggestions of changing the welfare system to require contribution before benefits can be claimed speaks to the worries of many, and reflects our own values of decency." - No what it does is apply pressure to the tens of thousands who try to find work and can not.

We (disabled) have not forgotten the legacy you applied to us in that you signed up ATOS to evaluate all disabled people's ability to work.

This decision has lead to over 300 (as reported by multiple news sources) suicides by disabled people due to their allowances that they rely on to live due to ill health being taken away from them.
This is after being evaluated by people barely qualified to decide whether they are fit to work. Physiotherapists and psychologists evaluating the physical abilities of people and whether they can work.

How can you as a party be trusted to do what is best for people who cannot gain employment ever again?!

You sit there and say what you think will buy you favour. Not what will actually be good for people.

"We have never been a party that has as a principle that benefits are available to all who rock up." - No. But you turned a blind eye to it under Gordon Brown when he signed the Lisbon Treaty.
That is the problem. You can say you are not okay with it. But unless you actually take action you are liable.

"These reforms would probably require changes to EU rules, and we should be able to have those conversations in a constructive way that eludes David Cameron. His failure in Europe is because he isn’t driven by a set of values but by political expediency." - With this statement Labour just proves they are every bit as dishonest as the Tories and the Lib Dems.

There is no scope for reform within the EU. That much has been said on multiple occasions but parties like Labour and the Conservatives continue to make out their is wiggle room for change in the Lisbon Treaty in the EU.

This is a downright lie! I am sick of it!

"Establishing a system of social security that you can trust has been a success for Labour in the past, and tackling that head on again could be once more. We can confidently talk about a social security system that reflects your contribution, where we know and respect our neighbours and their efforts to get on, rather than live suspecting all around us of working a system that doesn’t work for us." - This would be the same "Social Security" that Labour were forced to apologise for when they massively cocked up when the doors were opened to Poland and something like 20 times as many people came into the UK in a vastly shorter time period than as was expected. Absolutely flooding the unskilled Labour market and leaving the youth with an unemployment level that is a testament of shame to your party?

Labour have a very selective memory!

"UKIP want to say to people the only way to protect you from those risks is to turn your back on the world, with no thought to the horrendous economic consequences of becoming a small-state free-market island, a low-rent sweatshop on the edge of Europe." - It's funny. UKIP always get accused of "scaremongering" by the other parties and media. But what the Hell is this?!

UKIP want to reconnect with the Commonwealth both in trade and immigration.
Remind yourself that is a third of the worlds population for goodness sakes!

UKIP want to have Worldwide immigration of skilled labour as opposed to a complete open door to 27 member states of Europe and the bizarre immigration setup with a few middle eastern countries we have now.

Why on Earth should we deny a New Zealand based neurosurgeon entry to the UK to work in favour of a Eastern European laborer as we do right now?!

UKIP want trade deals and connection with the GLOBE. That includes the EU.
We do not have to be part of the EU to trade with the EU.
We have Article 50 which means the EU have to trade with us if we enforce it. It worked for Switzerland didn't it?

Meanwhile we can foster trade deals with all the trade capital countries of the world, create trade deals with the emerging countries of the World and reconnect with our cousins in the Commonwealth!

The EU is the slowest growing trade market in the World.

Don't listen to silly little scare stories such as the one in this article. It is just another Labour Party attempt to mislead the electorate.

Read UKIP's manifesto if you do not believe the words of this individual.

"My community has changed rapidly over the last 15 to 20 years or so, and the anxiety that can grow from that is being exploited by UKIP." - UKIP are a common-sense party. We talk to people about what concerns then as opposed to striking fear into them that some subjects are taboo and should not be spoken about.

Labour tried this tactic under Blair and Brown striking the fear into people who were concerned about how their communities were changing and how little jobs were going around due to labour who were willing to work for less.

I am not surprised that this article is trying to scare people off of reading UKIP's true policies.

After all we all know that Labour Party members have their fingers in anti-fascist groups who falsely go around yelling abuse at UKIP members and supporters. Falsely accusing decent hard working individuals of racism for just supporting a party they believe listens to them.

I don't want to turn this into a mud slinging contest. But UKIP are a party that listens.
We debate.
I will talk to anyone from any party as long as it doesn't involve foul abuse being flung in my direction and baseless accusations being made.

I have tried talking to Labour Party councilors, activists and MP's in the past and some of the abuse I have received for simply being a UKIP member has been astounding.

I oppose homophobia, racism and extremism. Yet this doesn't stop some in Labour blanket accusing the majority of disgusting things and trying to prevent those people freedom of speech.

I myself have just encountered a "anti UKIP group" in my town of Worthing in West Sussex.
The person who co-runs the group has not disclosed her background or any political bias. Yet is a Labour Party member and stood as a Councilor in a ward local to me.
When I brought this up in debate, I was immediately banned by the person in question from even commenting on the group.

Labour also have representation in the UAF and Hope Not Hate. Two laughably titled "anti fascist" groups who do not believe in democracy, freedom of speech and the freedom for a group of people to join together at meetings or conferences.

I myself, a disabled person have been prevented from attending UKIP meetings by these groups supported by Labour Party members.

This is what you get if you dare to question a subject Labour and other parties do not want discussed.

Being concerned about open-door immigration is not racist or xenophobic. It should be freely discussed without fear. Yet Labour and other groups have installed a climate of fear around UKIP so when they discuss it, they are perceived in a different light.

This is disgraceful.

"Labour is and always has been the party of decency for working people, and right now that means connecting people to their own ambitions through practical achievable things we will do that will create opportunity and security." - As I have highlighted above in numerous sections this is a lie at best.

Labour have done more for degradation of communities and societies than any other party in British history.

Labour had an opportunity under Tony Blair and even under Gordon Brown to install a fair controlled immigration system where people could integrate into communities. But they squandered this opportunity for greed.
To help big business grow with a cheap unskilled labour market free to them.

"These ambitions cross the boundaries of race and language (and indeed class), which enable us to bring people together ti build solidarity and a strong community of shared values. To abandon some of our potential voters to the politics of despair isn’t just daft and cynical, it’s wrong." - Again this misleading at best.
UKIP cross boundaries of race, religion, ethnicity and nationality.
We have wings of other Nationalities (UKIP friends of Poland for instance), we have reps of different religions (Muslim, Jewish and others) and I am proud of that fact.

We want people to come to the UK from allover the World. But in such a way that is sustainable.

Labour destroyed communities.
London is a good example. It is now unaffordable to people who have family living back generations in the capital.

My community on the South Coast has changed dramatically since the doors were opened to Europe. Community shops that have been about since I was a child have long since gone, cultures have changed and the community spirit has suffered.

I sit here today thinking about how my country has changed over the last 20 years.
Allot has changed for the good.
Immigration isn't a bad thing.
People of different communities joining ours is a good thing.
Having trade deals with the World isn't a bad thing.

But the legacy that Labour left us with should not be forgotten so soon.

I find it infuriating how they try to manipulate the electorate with dishonest articles such as these.

Dishonest in how they sumarise UKIP in a manner that doesn't truly or honestly reflect them.

Dishonest in how they try to make people forget their own legacy, elements they are yet to own up to and how they will solve problems that just would not exist without their impact during their last term in Downing Street.

I am not asking you to vote UKIP.
I am not saying you should vote Tory or Lib Dem.

But what I am saying is before you hang your flag of allegiance to the Labour Party. At least have all the facts at hand. Read all the manifesto's released by the parties and do NOT forget the legacy that Labour have left this country.
