Where do you want me to start? It's not particularly intelligent to vote for a single issue party with no policies that uses xenophobia to attract voters. It's not very intelligent to vote for a party that campaigns on national issues in local elections. It's not very intelligent to support a party that has seen half its MEPs convicted of fraud and turns out former BNP members as candidates in local elections.

UKIP is just another far-right party made up of Little Englanders, racists and poorly educated people who fear the world around them. It doesn't offer any solutions and just attracts right-wingers who want to blame their problems on foreigners. It's telling that UKIP is supported by the EDL and the BNP.

Funny you mention intelligence, there was a paper published over four years ago detailing out the average IQ of voters of the main political parties over here, and the least intelligent voters were UKIP and BNP (with non-voters + voters of smaller parties coming out as more intelligent than BNP voters): http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/blog/2008/nov/03/greenpolitics-liberaldemocrats

have you read the UKIP policies ? or have you just heard what their main point is? and they do not want all immigrants gone and it just be white people, they want to limit immigration and stop foreigners coming here to sponge... I was going to vote BNP but I then saw their polices and how radical they were and thought wow this is just a hate group. the main point is there are to many people in this country and I want anyone over the fools in parliament at the moment. also they will keep us free from the EU ....VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR ECONOMY ... please educate your self before making assumptions to a specific demographic ...

I understand your point of view but it does not seem like an overly educated one.

I normally avoid voting and have done so once in my life, and in reference to the other posts, my IQ is just below genius. so yea just saying the studies just sound like propaganda to me. would be a good way to get people not to vote for them wouldn't ? by saying they are basically idiots?

What policies?

Also, it's interesting that you know what their immigration policy is because UKIP have said that they don't have one:

One of these statements is not true and the rest of your post proves my other points.

I'm not sure what would make you think I'm enraged. I'm actually in quite a good mood now that I've found the only genius to potentially vote BNP in the country. Also, I think you might have missed the point of n_K's post which is surprising given how high your IQ is.

While still on the subject of UKIP, I have read their policies, and I'm against most of them. The standout ones, they want a complete freeze on all immigration for five years (which will harm the economy, as immigrants actually contribute more than they take away), a flat tax rate of 31% (which punishes the poor even more, and the rich even less than the Tories have done, and it'll also cost the treasury billions of pounds), no more wind turbines (which makes up about half of the UK's renewable energy, and will become more and more important in the future), and, obviously, take us out of the EU (which if you look beyond the propaganda, you'll realise the EU's benefits outweigh the downsides. Most recently, they passed through two acts which our unelected government refused to do: a ban on pesticides that kill bees, and a cap on bankers' bonuses). To their credit though, they do also want to raise the personal tax-free allowance to

Have you even used the abortion of a website gov.uk for job seekers now created for the current government?

Instead of filling a booklet in as to what jobs you want to sign up for you have to use a site called Universal Jobsmatch and it is AWFUL.

Just like American politics; the only major difference being we don't have a British equivalent to The Daily Show or The Colbert Report. The closest we have to either of those is 10 O'Clock Live, which is only on once a week for typically three/four months in a year. :/

Still trying to figure out whether Lauren Laverne is hot or not. Anyway, there are plenty of other shows on UK TV and radio which are fueled by politics.
