UKIP seem to be lenient on anything other than immigration policy, because that's the only way they're gonna get votes from anyone other than racists and nationalists.

EVERY major party is looking to stop excessive immigration. UKIP use immigration issues as a scapegoat for our nation's problems, causing racism towards immigrants.

Thanks, but I still have no idea what it is.

From the top result

"Ukip leader said the war on drugs had been lost “many, many years ago” and that it was time for them to be legalised – despite strong opposition from his party. "

Not a word about it on their website.

Then there was that youth leader that got kicked out in part because of his comments on legalising drugs.


So what is it?

I read a little while ago that Farage doesn't favour the 'war on drugs' approach but the rest of his party didn't like him saying that.

They are seen as a single-issue party, so I doubt their views on drugs will attract/detract voters to them. It simply isn't important.

I've heard a fair few kipers talk up ukip as a good option for drug law reform, there used to be a regular on here but it's an area where much of the party seem to strongly disagree with the views of Farage so i imagine it does have the potential to lose them votes and i'll probably never get an answer.

As much as I dislike Nigel Farage, you've misquoted him there. The article says he is in favour of legalising some drugs, not all. He's not clear on what drugs he would decriminalise though.

Much the same as Dave then.

David Cameron, the Tory leadership contender, believes the UN should consider legalising drugs and wants hard-core addicts to be provided with legal "shooting galleries" and state-prescribed heroin.

He also supported calls for ecstasy to be downgraded from the class-A status it shares with cocaine and heroin and said it would be "disappointing" if radical options on the law on cannabis were not looked at.

Not in this case it seems, UKIP head office just got back to me.

UKIP would maintain the law as it stands

The link above is rubbish. It is dated April this year - UKIP's policies have a life span of anywhere between an hour to a day.

It didn't even make it to UKIP policy, just another example of Farage trying to con libertarians to vote for authoritarians.

UKIP aren't either racist or homophobic. They just want to control immigration and also they are not either for or against gay marriage because it would annoy the church and they don't really mind about gay marriage, neither to I as it, it's over a name because civil partnership and marriage basically the same. we live in a place full of equality right? It seems liberals think it is ok to offence religious people apart from the Muslims who disagree with their ideology. It depends about the drug Farage isn't too bothered about drug policy but Paul Nuthell is very much against it, as I am because I live in the biggest druggie place in Limavady and I am very anti-drugs I have no time for them, I think dealers along with murders, terrorists, sex offenders, people very bad to pet animals, those that assault others that puts them in a serious condition like a coma for example and assault children and elderly should be put to death because they are evil.

Glad you could clear that one up, so it's the death penalty for passing a spliff, makes sense, sounds a lot more like UKIP than Nige's comments.
