    LOL maybe you haven't read their policies. Leaving the EU, businesses should be able to discriminate in favour of british workers, their sense of economics is of a 5 year old.
    I'd formed the impression that the EU is very unpopular among city traders, as Farage was? As a group I'd expect them to have a pretty decent idea of economics.

    whats wrong with discriminating for british workers? we already discriminate for foreign workers because they accept low pay
    uhmm.. discrimination is illegal. If a foreign worker is discriminated, and there is no law for it, how do you think that will affect the UK's image around the world. Less people from different countries would want to work in the UK, less diversity, and that could mean less talented people coming in.

    The city only opposes Europe because they want to become Singapore/Switzerland. Not because it's actually economically bad (just that it holds back their tax haven dreams).

    Discrimination is happening now is and happening all the time. We cant see it most of the time. There is no clear way we can completely stop it. For instance we can sometimes never confidently know the REAL REASON why a job candidate was rejected by an employer or why a university rejected an applicant. It is thought that Oxford discriminate against black students. A crazy policy like theirs wouldn't actually change the attitude of companies.

    you're right, it does happen, and you can't completely stop it, but do you think the idea of allowing businesses to discriminate is the right thing to do? There are cases where people have proved discrimination, and actions have been taken

    Thing is would you call it 100% discrimination? If the UK leaves the EU shouldn't businesses in the UK favour British workers over Foreign workers because British people will no longer be able to work in countries of the EU. That policy kind of make sense and fits with the main policy, that is; leaving the EU. If you went Bangladesh, they would probably choose a Bengali worker over a White worker.
    Also the policy says 'should be' not 'have to'. If it was 'have to' then I must say they are a fascist party.

    Of course I do not agree to such a policy but I do not believe it will bring about any affect. We should worry about the affects of policies and not the policies themselves. In this case there is no affect as the policy will not change the attitudes of businesses. Businesses employ Foreign workers and probably favour them over British workers and this will continue even if UKIP come to power because the policy isn't forcing them to discriminate.

    I hope UKIP win this election. UKIP is the only party that can save us from this mess. Nigel Farage will probably make the best Prime Minister we have had in recent decades. All their policies make sense and are positively revolutionising. NHS will remain, free approved university courses, no more useless and damaging immigrants, extremists will be made to leave the country, less vehicles on the roads so less pollution, less pressure on housing, schools, transport, healthcare and less competition for jobs. Only UKIP can save this country!!!
    You tell yourself that lol

    There are some similarities to the Nazi party.

    Both extreme right wing parties who disguise themselves as being a "working people's party"
    Times of economic hardship sees them get more support
    Both use scapegoats
    1. Nazi party were left-wing socialists
    2. Completely irrelevant
    3. Immigration is not a scapegoat, but an ideological position of sovereignty that resonates with a nation of people. It simply does not resonate with you, because you hate yourself and your people. The Jews were a scapegoat, though.

    But other than that sure, completely the same as Nazis. zzzz

    Yes. The right blame their problems on easy, vulnerable targets whose "crimes" are negligible in the bigger picture. The left blame the problems on the big players who genuinely are the driving causes of the problems. What's worse, a desperate person living in poverty because of mental illness and a lack of an education asking for some slightly fairer benefits, or bankers squandering trillions of pounds worth of money that belongs to the people before dropping the entire globe into a recession, affecting the lives of billions across the world? How exactly is punishing the poor and vulnerable going to change any of that?
    The rich work for their money and weren't lazy back in their education days. Whereas those who couldn't be bothered and scoundel off benefits are receiving funds for their mistakes

    Discrimination is an issue to an extent. Although the truth could be said its natural to hire someone who speaks your language more fluently or to hire someone because of their ethnicity. It could be an unconscious decision to favour one or another

    Some, possibly. But the fact remains that out of the rich that exist today, most of them were either born into privilege and/or gained their wealth through the exploitation of others or the environment. To say that the wealthy got there because they worked hard and that the poor are only in their situation because they're lazy is an absolutely absurd generalisation that in most cases is just completely wrong. You need to spend a little bit less time watching Benefits Street and media generalisations and a bit more time actually listening to ordinary "poor" people.

    I would like to see the conservatives punished for being so spineless but I don't know about voting UKIP because that just puts labour in a better position, which does not bear thinking about. A conservative - UKIP coalition would be the perfect comprise

    ukip wont do a coalition with conservatives. they would be shooting themselves in the foot if they did that.
    labour's gonna win the election. ukip will get a lot more percentage of the vote and will damage conservatives.
