      No.
      Very well then moving on, What gives you the impression that people just see TSR UKIP as a group of Mad Hatters given the reasonable success the party has had in the past!

      Did it occur to you he might just have been considering voting for UKIP and wanted to know a bit more about you, considering you have a much lower profile than the other candidates?

      I would just like to say Matthew_Lowson was causing some bother in UKIP 48 hours ago, and he was given the ultimatum of leaving or calming down and he left.
      He is angry and he was trying to stir some things up in our party!

      He wasn't.I won't win anyway. He could have asked me in the private UKIP forum before.He only started to question me when he was kicked from UKIP.

        Very well, moving to RL UKIP, why do you feel people see the party as Mad Hatters when it' won a national election two months ago

          What is the one thing you have done in either the House or your party which you are most proud of?

          Great question, I'm looking forward to the responses

          I'll be honest: I've never been in the house and have only been deputy leader of my party for a few weeks, but in that time I've been quite happy with the responses, both positive and negative, I've got to some of my views from a number of people.

          What I really want to do with regards to the Libertarians is to: A. Convince those on the 'left' that we're not apologists for corporate tyranny, and B. to convince libertarians that there's a reason why the 'left' thinks we are in fact apologists for corporate tyranny!

          Over the last few weeks I've got a great response from both groups, and I'm really proud of that. I think once we sort out a lot of semantic issues, communication becomes a lot easier and we can start working in a common direction and having a meaningful conversation about philosophy and stuff - which, to be honest, is why I'm here!

          Thought I'd give a prediction with 3 hours to go and a turnout of near enough 80.

          Tories: 25-30%
          Libertarian: 15-20%
          Ukip: 10-15%
          Government: 35-40%

          That's a really interesting question and one I find hard to answer. I suppose I'd have to say my first MP election - I'd been in the Greens for less than a week when the MP slots were available and managed to come joint-first, ahead of some more senior members. I was of course incredibly out of my depth, but the party were really helpful at getting me started in the MHoC.
