Isn’t it interesting to note that a couple of years ago, the only column you saw the initials UKIP mentioned in was this ol’ boy’s scribble and these days it’s difficult to find a column that excludes them!?

Don’t forget you read it here first folks. Remember all the sneers and derogatory flack I took for it as well? Ha! I also recall the lady some years ago who, after my warnings about conflict with Islam extremists wrote: ‘Oh come on Leapy, what war’!?
Haven’t heard much from that particular source for some time either. Lovely to see all the hierarchy of the major parties wriggling liked hooked minnows in the light of UKIP’s recent successes.
Most of those interviewed have been asked the same question. ‘How are you going to deal with this threat from Farage’s party’? With slight variations they have all given exactly the same answer.
‘Well, were going to have to listen to the public and take the appropriate action to comply with their wishes. Er but I thought that’s what politicians were always supposed to do!
Well of course they are, but they don’t do they? It’s not until something really rattles these arrogant out of touch con-person’s cocoons that they start taking any notice of Joe Public at all.
Well the Farage team has certainly done that. The frightening thing is it’s all so simple. With UKIP’s almost nonexistent policies on most other issues (despite the irate gentleman who reeled off a whole rather unconvincing list to me!) the party has gained all its ground on two fronts only. Immigration and the EU. The British public is simply fed up.
Fed up with the amounts of foreigners flooding the country, fed up with Brussels and its nonsensical ‘uman rights,’ PC and ludicrous rules and regulations, fed up with being taken for mugs and fed up with losing their proud British identity.
UKIP will never gain enough power to bring about the kind of changes needed (not for the moment anyway!) but are a wonderful sounding block for the British voters to bounce off and reverberate along the musty, self-satisfied, arrogant and complacent corridors of those who can.
I’ve got the answer to all the problems involving the biased BBC – sack ‘em all and start over. This latest gem really takes the whole tin.
They edited the word ‘girl’ from a remark made by a sports commentator because they considered it ‘sexist’. You simply couldn’t make it up.
What description of Homo sapiens would they consider acceptable? All of us wearing grey ‘onesies’ and being referred to as ‘its’? British Broadcasting Corporation? More like Bumbling Biased Cretins. Sometimes I really do despair of it all.
Chins up, summers here. Now all we need are some holidaymakers!
