    Suprised to find this on the BBC, but here you go.

    We know that UKIP can take votes from any party it wants, and create new voters as well. So the strongest evidence yet is presented here that UKIP are the real and are here to stay. I for one very much look forward to that day in the not to distance future hopefully. Where the conservative party become part of UKIP and we have a strong UKIP government.

    I agree, but would still like to see some serious policies on the economy, education, pensions etc.
    I support them but am a bit disappointed by their arm chair economics, they should talk about corporation tax, stamp duty, capital gains tax etc not close down all quangos as a solution to the deficit.

    I support their crime, democracy, environment, Europe and welfare policies but i'm not sure what to think of their education policy, are grammar schools good or bad? :confused:

    UKIP are a breath of fresh air for those of us don't trust the identi-kit politicians who make up New Labour and Lib Dems, oh and the Conservatives. Farage has done well to force the issue of the EU onto the agenda (despite the liblabcon's shrill calls of 'xenophobe'), but we need to capitalise on our success and explain to the public how we'll fix the economy: mainly through a combination of tax cuts, tax simplification and public spending reductions, i.e we'll do what Osbourne claims he's doing but is actually failing miserably at. The public aren't stupid, they know that an annual deficit of £100bn+ will eventually lead to ruin and only a right-wing party like UKIP has the balls to tell the unproductive public sector that we can no longer afford them.
