Louise Bours MEP stands down from Congleton Town Council

Louise Bours MEP has stepped down from Congleton Town Council where she sat as a town councillor.

With so much of her time taken up combating the blatant lies spread by the Labour Party about UKIP wanting to privatise the NHS, it appears that she was unable to devote enough time to the town council and has stepped down.

School compares Nigel Farage to Nazi propagandist in presentation to children

Another school has been caught telling children that UKIP are racist after a parent complained that they had compared Nigel Farage to Nazi propagandist Melita Maschmann. This comes in the same week that a school in Bristol was forced to apologise for listing UKIP alongside the EDL, BNP and National Front as a racist organisation.

After a slide with the words "evil", "blood thirsty", "monsters" and "murderers" are two slides devoted to UKIP. The first slide features Nigel Farage quoting him saying he wouldn't want to live next door to Romanians and blaming delays on the motorway on immigrants and includes a picture of David Sylvester, the councillor who said that floods are punishment from god for gay marriage, describing him as a former UKIP councillor but omitting to mention him being a former Conservative councillor for many, many years.

The second slide has a picture of former UKIP councillor Chris Pain who was accused of making derogatory comments about illegal immigrants on Facebook. This was investigated by the police, the comments didn't appear on his Facebook wall and the screenshot was almost certainly faked.

Nigel Farage has confirmed that he will be reporting the school to the Department for Education for political indoctrination. The school says that he is overreacting at being likened to a Nazi propagandist who helped bring on the next holocaust and that when they put a picture of him on a slide titled "There's no way modern Britain could repeat Melita's mistakes ... right?" they weren't suggesting that he might bring on the next holocaust.

It's a shame Farage is only complaining to the DfE and not suing the bigots involved for libel.

East Hants Conservative councillor defects to UKIP

A Conservative councillor in Hampshire has defected to UKIP.

Cllr Guy Stacpoole, East Hants district councillor for Petersfield St Mary's, has been a member of the Conservatives for all of his adult life and a district councillor for 12 years. Prior to that he was a borough councillor in Waverley, Surrey.
Like so many other former Conservatives I simply cannot accept the national party’s policies regarding Britain’s armed forces, immigration and the European Union. The Conservative policy approach in all of these key areas runs counter to the best interests of this country.

No one in their right minds should vote Labour and the Liberal Democrats continue to be a waste of time. Only UKIP offers the suitable alternative sought by those very many of us who are frustrated by a leadership we can no longer trust.

I shall stand again in May’s elections for St. Mary’s ward where I am the incumbent District Councillor and where I played a major part in guiding the new Sheet Parish Council to fruition.

I know many people who hold similar views and I would encourage them to join the new, dynamic UKIP team in East Hampshire and help regain Britain’s sovereignty and independence.

Bristol school apologise for describing UKIP as racist

A school in Bristol have apologised after including UKIP in a list of racist organisations which they were likening to Hitler and the Nazis.

Pupils at the Bridge Learning Campus were being taught about racism and the teacher had prepared a presentation for them. One of the slides listed UKIP alongside the BNP, English Defence League, National Front and Neo Nazis whilst telling the children that people who are members of those organisations are racists.

This isn't the first time teachers have let their personal prejudices spill over into the classroom and it's unlikely to be the last. The education system has a distinct left wing bias and it's not uncommon to find Che Guevara posters in schools where some teachers consider the mass murdering communist terrorist to be a role model. However, it's not acceptable for teachers to inflict their extremist views on children and it's good to see the school recognise that and issue an apology.

Bradford Conservative councillor defects to UKIP

A Conservative councillor in Bradford has defected to UKIP.

Cllr Michael McCabe has been a Conservative councillor for Thornton & Allerton ward for 10 years. His defection means there are now two UKIP councillors in Bradford.

Green Party's citizens income policy "unworkable"

The Green Party's "citizens income" policy that would see everyone in the country guaranteed a minimum income of £72 per week has been described as "unworkable" by an economic think tank.

The Citizen's Income Trust said that the policy would cost the British Treasury about £280bn and would leave the poorest in society worse off than they currently are. After nearly four years under a Tory government, making poor people poorer is quite an achievement.

Looks like this is another one to add to the growing list of deluded and dangerous Green policies.

Conservative councillor in Bracknell defects to UKIP

A Conservative councillor in Bracknell has defected to UKIP.

Cllr Will Davison, who represents Hanworth ward on Bracknell Forest Council, had become "increasingly disenchanted" with the Tories and announced his defection at a public meeting last night.

Cllr Davison's defection will make the UKIP group the second largest on the council, making UKIP the official opposition.

Yellow Belly Dave finds another excuse to bottle out of TV debates

Yellow Belly Cameron is still trying to bottle out of the televised leaders' debates by demanding the TV companies invite more party leaders to take part.

Cameron's first excuse for bottling it was that the Greens weren't invited. He said that you can't invite some "minor parties" like UKIP and the Lib Dems (two of the four parties that OFCOM have ruled are major parties) and not others and he wouldn't take part because it wasn't fair.

So the TV companies hedged their bets and invited not only the Green Party but the SNP and Plaid Cymru as well to the first two debates which made a slightly farcical 7 parties involved in the TV debates, two of which only contest elections in Scotland and Wales. Now he's demanding that the DUP be invited to represent Northern Ireland because it's not fair that Scotland and Wales will be represented in the debates but not Northern Ireland.

He's got a point about it being unfair but the answer isn't to drag an eighth party in to make sure Northern Ireland is represented, the answer is to include only the parties that have a chance of winning a seat in the British parliament and are contesting elections in at least three of the member states of the UK. There is already a separate Scottish leaders' debate planned so do the same for Wales and Northern Ireland with the parties that have a chance of winning seats there and then there's no need for the UK leaders' debate to descend into farce.

Cameron isn't interested in what's "fair", he doesn't want the debates to take place. If he has no way of squirming out of taking part he wants to get as many parties into the first two debates as possible so hardly anyone gets a chance to say anything and half of what is said is irrelevant because of devolution. He wants the SNP and Plaid and the Greens involved to saturate the left wing representation on the debates. The DUP will make no difference to any of the other parties because Northern Irish politics is so completely alien to English, Scottish and Welsh politics and only UKIP contest elections in Northern Ireland (the NI and Scottish Green Parties are separate parties to the Green Party of England & Wales).

Demanding the DUP be involved is just Cameron making unreasonable demands on the TV companies so he can try and get out of the debates. The TV companies should go back to the original plan of just the four major parties (or the four major parties plus the Greens) and  empty chair Cameron if he doesn't turn up. If he wants an excuse not to take part then give him an excuse.

Survation predicts 16 seats for UKIP

UKIP could win 16 seats in May according to a Survation poll for the Mirror.

The poll puts the Conservatives on 31%, Labour on 30% and UKIP on 23%. The Lib Dems lead the minor parties on 7%, the SNP are on 5% and the Greens are on 3%.

Despite polling less than a third of UKIP's projected share of the vote, the analysis suggests that the Lib Dems would win 27 seats compared to 16. The first past the post system really should have been thrown out by now and replaced with a system that reflects how people actually vote.

The seats they predict turning purple are:
  • Waveney
  • Wyre Forest
  • Rother Valley
  • Plymouth Moor View
  • Walsall North
  • St Austell and Newquay
  • Dudley North
  • Camborne and Redruth
  • Cannock Chase
  • Great Grimsby
  • Great Yarmouth
  • Heywood and Middleton
  • Thanet South
  • Rochester and Strood
  • Thurrock
  • Clacton
The polling analysis shows that UKIP threatens Labour and the Conservatives in equal measures. UKIP are predicted to take 7 seats off the Conservatives, 6 off Labour, 1 off the Lib Dems and hold the 2 seats that already have UKIP MPs.

Victory for Syriza in Greek elections

The anti-austerity Syriza party looks to have won the Greek elections by a sizeable margin.

Exit polls suggest that Syriza got between 36% and 38% of the vote with second placed New Democracy trailing by 10%. Syriza's vote share means they will secure between 149 and 151 seats and they need the 151 for an outright majority. Just over 40% of the votes have been counted so far.

Syriza is a soft eurosceptic party, opposed to EU austerity and the German takeover of the EU. They support continued membership of the €uro but not at the expense of Greek sovereignty.

There are going to be some sleepless nights in presidential palaces across Europe tonight.

Hinkley Conservative councillor sent racist and sexist jokes

A Conservative councillor in Leicestershire has been forced to apologise for emailing racist and sexist jokes to colleagues.

Cllr Peter Batty, a Hinckley & Bosworth borough and Groby parish councillor, forwarded "funny" emails about Indian taxi drivers, Jews and Irish people to his colleagues. One of the emails contained the word "nigger". Cllr Batty is leader of the Conservative group on the borough council.

Independent Powys councillor, Myfanwy Alexander, resigned as deputy leader of the council after using the same word in a council meeting. Cllr Batty should take a leaf out of her book and do the honourable thing.

Putting the Queen in a council house, legalising terrorism and abolishing the army - the delusional and dangerous Green manifesto

The leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett, says that if her party was in government they would abolish the monarchy and move the Queen into a council house.

The Australian republican leader of the Greens, who has never won an election, goes on to say that they would embark on a programme of wealth redistribution and want to "restructure society". Bennett says that they will force companies like Amazon to pay more tax even though they are absolutely committed to staying in the EU who made the laws that the likes of Amazon use to avoid paying tax. Bennett has also said that they would decriminalise membership of terrorist organisations, the number of prison sentences given out would be "significantly reduced" and the armed forces will be disbanded and their bases turned into nature reserves.

This is why it's a good thing that the Greens are going to be on the televised debates in the run up to the election because as soon as you scratch away at the environmentalist surface, you uncover a manifesto that is as insane as something the Monster Raving Loony Party would come up with. It's funny when the Loony's do it though because they don't expect it to be taken seriously and don't fool voters into thinking they're not a bunch of schizophrenic, far left control freaks.

The Greens aren't just deluded, they're dangerous.

Amjad Bashir MEP defects back to the Tories

Yorkshire & Humber MEP, Amjad Bashir, has resigned from UKIP and gone back to the Conservatives after being suspended over serious concerns about alleged financial and employment law offences.

David Cameron has said that he is "delighted" to welcome Bashir to the party but he might not be delighted for much longer if the allegations against him are true. The party have forwarded evidence from its investigation into Bashir to the police, It is unknown whether the alleged employment law offences relate to the immigration raid on one of his restaurants in 2013 which resulted in the arrest of 7 people.

Bashir isn't expected to honour the pledge he signed before the election to resign as an MEP if he resigned from the party.

Here are some of Bashir's recent comments about his new boss:
The public is angry with his party’s commitment to give 0.7% of our gross national income in foreign aid but Cameron stubbornly won’t back down on it, unusually for a man who has happily reneged on pledges on other issues.
David Cameron set the target to show the Conservatives are not the ‘nasty party’ but instead it shows they are the short sighted party.
David Cameron’s plans for countering British jihadis are like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted.
David Cameron has thrown a number of options into the air in a desperate bid to save his own skin but like so many spinning plates they will all come crashing to the ground in pieces.

David Cameron still bottling out of TV debates

David Cameron has told the BBC, Sky, Channel 4 and ITV that he won't be "bounced" into televised election debates by them agreeing to do what he said they had to do for him to appear in the televised election debates.

Cameron bottled out of going head to head with Nigel Farage live on TV using the excuse that the Greens weren't invited to take part. He said if one minor party was invited then all the minor parties should be invited to take part. He specifically named the Lib Dems and UKIP as minor parties despite OFCOM ruling that both are major parties and should have the same amount of regulated media time as the Tories and Labour.

The four broadcasters responsible for the televised debates have announced changes to the format of the debates to accommodate David Cameron's diva demands and have invited the SNP, Plaid Cymru and Green Party to the first two debates with a third one reserved just for him and David Miliband's brother. But despite caving in to demands, Yellow Dave is still trying to bottle out of the debates.

If Yellow Dave doesn't turn up, the broadcaster have said they will replace him with an empty chair.
