Genius way to weaken UKIP at elections. Watch
UKIP claims that Nattrass’ decision to start the party’s name with the word “An” is a deliberate trick to ensure the new party appears at the top of most ballot papers in the forthcoming European elections.
Well one article about this pointed out that the Lib Dems lost an election once because of another party (most likely a single person) called the Literal Democrats. Enough people voted for that instead of the Lib Dems that another party won (I think it was Labour).
If this was funded by a political party, or a member or anyone who is open about the political party they support, they should be fined (as should the party) and put in jail for undermining democratic procedure.
Remains to be seen whether or not "An Independence from Europe" party is breaching this law.
In one constituency a party called the Literal Democrats gained 10,000 from the Liberal Democrats. The public is that stupid. Looks like someone beat me to this (by two days).
