    Ukip will likely not get enough MP's to be of value to anybody, it's far more likely that the Tories would go for parties they have good relations with and who will have more MP's (DUP and Libs).

    It's only bad if you disagree with their policies. Personally i think many are quite amateurish.

    Those things aren't mutually exclusive.

    I have not once called them racist or inconsistent (though actually they are quite inconsistent). Prove i have.

    I agree with many and disagree with many, i dislike Farage more than the party.

    Get a grip on your memory yourself.

    Are they going to get more than 15 seats?

    Discussion of them in a coalition is a waste of time, it wont happen.

    ukip would be foolish to go into government at this ge. they would dissolve into the next ge if they do. their best option is to split the conservative vote, let labour in, let the muslims in from turkey and then get a majority in the next ge.

    Agreed (not an endorsement).

    From a Labour PoV a coalition with them looks ridiculous and they lose all their votes to the Greens.

    From a Tory PoV a coalition gives them few votes and legitimises UKIP, increasing the chance of defections.


    UKIP being in government is literally in the best interest of absolutely no one.p

    lab/tories wont get an absolute majority. they need ukip support, and 15 seats may help that.

    I'd argue that both would much rather work in minority governments or on confidence and supply agreements for individual issues for the reasons I already stated.

    UKIP in givt would be ridiculous. Imagine sending a UKIP minister to anywhere there are foriegners, poor people or gays. He/she would say something stupid and piss people off then claim it was a joke.
