Let's create a hypothetical situation that by some miracle UKIP become the largest party in the UK, they organise an EU referendum, the British people vote to leave the EU and strict immigration controls are put in place.
Okay. Would you still be a UKIP voter after this? I cannot claim to know much about UKIP's policies but a lot of them revolve around the EU and once its all over, what happens then??
Well Ukip will then be free to implement their economic policies for example. Very free market.
Though I think it's a sad indictment of the state of the debate of politics in this country when an Australian-style immigration system is considered 'strict'. Better than calling them racist for it though.
At the minute, I think the country needs to have a serious debate about the role the EU plays.
That means none of this pulling the racist card when someone thinks uncontrolled immigration is bad.
We need the truthful figures of how much money goes to the EU, the truthful figures about what laws are made in the EU, and we need to be given the chance as a nation to vote on whether we think its best for our country.
Sadly, labour have completely dismissed this. They think its best for us, so we dont get a say. The hypocrisy is whilst saying that in the next sentence they claim they're against top down economics and politics, and all for the people. Well then Ed, why not give the people a say instead of imposing what you think is best on the rest of us?
In short, I do agree with a lot of UKIPs policies. I dont think we should be giving free healthcare to anyone who immigrates here, they should come with insurance. We cannot police or heal the world, and its about time we started putting British people first.
I also want to be proud of my national identity. Wales has one, Scotlands national identity is currently soaring, but what about Englands? Its almost as if Im not allowed to be proud of the fact I'm english, because someone will find it racist.
I'll probably be voting tory on election day, but I'd like to see UKIP do well.
