    Labour: Allowed uncontrolled immigration, lied by saying they will not introduce tuition fees but they did, brought the UK into the Iraq war (more like massacre).

    Conservatives: Increased tuition fees, plans to take away free healthcare, make education tougher than it already is.

    I hate them both.
    Yup, same. UKIP isn't the answer though.

    UKIP want to legalise discrimination against foreign workers. I wonder how that one's gonna work. Are we gonna chuck out CVs by place of birth, by nationality, or by how funny someone's name sounds?
    Show me proof of that.

    Hi, I'm an immigrant. Immigration to the UK during Labour's rule was never 'uncontrolled'. My family moved here in 2002 and only a moron who has no idea how visas work would ever claim that the UK has ever had 'uncontrolled immigration'.
    Should have been more controlled than it is now.

    I've called up my local UKIP candidate and asked him about this, because I'm a UK citizen born abroad with a 'funny foreign surname'. He mumbled and huffed and said he didn't know.

    Like Nigel. He's a good egg.
    I'll certainly be voting for him. Unfortunately, I've got that silly old dinosaur Skinner for an MP and I can't see him being voted out. Too many labour morons around here.

    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?

    How so? It operates on a points-based system, exactly like Australia (I'm using Auss as an example because that's all I ever hear from UKIP - "we should be like Australia, etc, etc!").

    By the way, that hallowed Australian-style points-based immigration system? 26.8% of Aus population is foreign-born.

    Just because they are allowed to doesn't mean they will. Businesses can employ whoever they want, that policy doesn't change anything. There are businesses discriminating against many white working class individuals who want to work but they rather take Blacks and Asians because they think only they 'work hard'. Very stereotypical.

    Lack of funding is leading it to be privatised which I hope does not happen.

    UKIP are just as bad as the Conservative party, though. The only benefit of UKIP is to remove ourselves from the European Union, whilst the rest of their policies don't do anything to address the serious issues facing the fabric of the nation. They call themselves 'anti-establishment' but UKIP are in complete support of the system.

    considering both labour and conservatives have privatised the nhs, why are you worried about ukip doing it?
