Couldn’t help noticing that UKIP (UK Independence Party) picked up 26% in the recent Council elections. Does this signal a rise to prominence for the nascent Conservative movement in England or is it a fluke?
Will the Tories jump ship to UKIP? Is Cameron supportive? My guess is the Tories, like the GOP here will say all the correct stuff and then behind closed doors will plot to destroy the interlopers.
England could by establishing a strong Conservative movement and of course leaving the Bitter Belgian Bully’s become a model and leader in the RESURRECTION of sanity in the Western World.
Of course, here we are saddled with a Monster is attempting on several fronts; medical, guns, abortion/morality, taxes and energy self sufficiency.
It is now a proven fact that the largest oil reserves in the World are in the ground here or off our shores. Yet the Socialist Revolutionary does nothing but, like yesterday, run to Mexico and blame the gun violence in Mexico on America and our “magic” guns that walk themselves across the border load themselves and w/o benefit of human intervention proceed to murder innocents in Mexico.
I honestly don’t know what offends me more; his destruction of America, his platitudes, his lack of intellect or his abdication of our ideals and the fact the MSM allows him to skate on his Constitutional duties.
He is an absolute train wreck of a POTUS and destroying this great country as part of imposing his warped Statist views. Make no mistake we are voluntarily allowing this criminal to turn America into something most of us won’t recognize.

All this is a very new phenomenon with a myriad of points of view.
I don’t know what to make of it all at this stage so perhaps you’d allow a bit of time for me to come up with even an initial reaction.
Just think of this as a holding reply – can’t respond immediately but will eventually.

Some musings on this UKIP business and other related matters in no particular order of importance.
- The country is fed up with an almost daily diet of reports of illegal aliens committing serious rape, assault, GBH, riot etc, being sentenced to 10 years say and subsequent deportation only to read that on their release after 5 years they are met at the prison gate by the first liberal lawyer in a long queue.They are persuaded to retain the lawyer and promptly whisked off to an Immigration Court where they appeal the immigration order on the grounds of their right to a family life under the EC Human Rights Act. The appeal is almost always allowed and the miscreant remains indefinitely in the UK.All this is at public expense even tho’ the ‘family life’ might comprise a random woman being made pregnant, remaining unmarried and the alien never seeing the woman or child again.Great frustration also abounds over the Abu Qatada fiasco, a man egregiously committed to harming the UK, remaining in this country despite 10 years of successive government attempts to deport him to his native Jordan.
- Up till now I’ve taken the view that Cameron has been frustrated in any effort to do what should be done by the malign and totally disproportionate influence of the Liberal coalition partner.However, we now get all this trivia like forcing through gay marriage, green energy, no fracking and the like when people are naturally more interested in the economy, immigration, energy prices and all the other more serious matters which need attention.Thus when UKIP offer to come out of the EU, slow immigration to a trickle and revoke the EU laws and regulations which are such a drag on the nation it gathers an immediate and significant bolus of popular support.
- Those people voting for UKIP are doing so in real anger and protest at the lack of Tory direction with some of the votes coming from former Labour supporters but mainly from disenchanted Conservatives.However, although there is no way that UKIP has the capacity or gravitas to win a General Election, there is a very real danger that significant numbers of disaffected Tory votes will remain with UKIP and allow Labour to slip under the radar and gain a majority by default – very worrying.
- The Tories could greatly ameliorate the above risk by offering an ‘In-Out’ referendum but that would not be possible this side of an election because the Liberals in the Coalition would not allow the necessary legislation to go through.So Cameron is offering the next best thing – a referendum if he wins the next election in two years time; it might work.
- If a referendum did call for us to leave, it would still take forever to negotiate a way out because of all the binding agreements that Blair and Brown tied us into during the last 10/11 years of Labour government, many of which had a ratchet effect. Add to that the Scottish In\Out referendum next year and you have the perfect storm.
- Barry and his mob think the UK and its independent sterling in the EU is a good thing; for the US it sure is good to have the advantage of an ally firmly in the EU as a foothold of influence.But Uncle Sam has no danger of having to put up with socialist laws and regulations imposed upon them by a non-elected superstar judiciary peopled by the much-feted defenders of freedom and probity that Lithuania, Latvia, and etc is so famous for.
- In the long run the Euro has no future, if at all, in its present form.How on earth can hard-working and cautious countries like Germany and Holland operate effectively in the same sphere as siesta-orientated Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Spain and all the other Club-Med countries, particularly when members previously regarded as acceptable like France and Italy are now seen to wobble. France, in particular, under Hollande is sinking deeper by the minute into a socialist mess.
- On balance I now think it would be better for the UK to leave the EU.
What you say about the POTUS is very worrying, particularly as there is no Knight in White Amour on the horizon from the GOP.
I also read that Barry and his Commissars are plotting Brown type schemes which will ratchet socialist policies and leftie personnel into every corner of the state and charity sectors.
If the UK experience is any guide on this, you may look forward to a very long period of effort if things are to be put right again.

My hat is off to you. That’s as fine a missive as you have ever sent my way. Great clarity on; the mood of the public, the UKIP party, the EU, Cameron’s inadequacy and the general sad state of the once mighty ENGLAND. I empathize and feel about the same towards Mao’Bama’s America.
You are right we don’t have to put up with Socialist laws and regulations from pip-squeak Club Med countries we just get same from homegrown pip-squeak Socialists and their entourage of leftist lawyers/judges.
The language is a bit rough from a friend of mine, who I had never discussed politics with in the 7 years I have known him, when he suddenly blurted out, “We’re f***ed” in a manner that told me he knew the stakes and had weighed the options and the conclusion was as obvious to him as it is to me. Short of an impeachment (never happen) we will suffer through 3 more years of Mao’Bama and his gang of Merry Regulators until the USA I grew up in is but a distant memory.
In a sense your task may be easier than mine in the sense the UK can appeal to patriotism to drive the Huns (EU) from your doorstep whereas any such tactic here would be viewed as partisan politics.
I just hang on until I feel they will be ready to breakdown my doors and will then move abroad.
I sense a new note of both realism (EU) and resignation in your comments. Sad to say we are both in the same boat.
A stolen election, a POTUS who is a virtual dictator by regulation and the once great USA is on her knees begging for help. But from what quarter?
